Off topic question... Can I simply move my SD card to a new XL to retain downloaded games/content?


No, you must do a system transfer. There are some caveats about what you can and can't do, but basically it moves the permissions (DRM #-o) to the new console, THEN you can move your sd card.

Apparently your comment was so full of rage and anger that you immediately fell asleep. That's a new level of rage.

I just can't ever seem to pull the trigger on a 3DS XL deal. I'm always hoping for a limited edition to be announced or a better sale. 170 is so damn tempting though...


You seem to be waiting for the same edition I am. I am holding out till there is a pkmn x y edition.

So I ordered this. The Wal Mart by me has the Mario Kart bundle, I could return this without a receipt and pick that up right? Or is my logic flawed?

Pretty sure it won't work. I could be wrong, but don't they have a limit on how much an item costs without a receipt? Like Target is $70.

I got one from Best Buy a couple weeks ago when they had it for $170. Of course I had to pay tax there, so this would be the better deal.

I love my 3DS XL. The bigger screens really are a big improvement in my opinion.

I'll imagine this is probably YMMV. Our Walmarts around here in Central Alabama are really cracking down on returns without receipts. Especially items that cost more than $50. I know several instances where people I know tried to exchange items w/o receipts and were denied by management.

I was going to call ahead of time to see if I could do a straight exchange, since they are the same price.

Because these have serial numbers here is what they will tell you. It can be returned without a receipt, but they will need to know the exact day you bought it. So they can look it up in the system.

Figures. I go to order it and it is OOS. I just picked up Fire Emblem Awakening too on my way home lol

Anyone know of any other deals for an XL besides the Mario Kart bundle one.

If you don't mind used you could get one at cowboom.com for $120 or $130. Just make sure it isn't missing parts. I picked up a grade 5 3DS on there for $130. It was in perfect condition and even came with Mario Kart 7.

The problem with used is that if it's already been registered odds are you won't be able to get a new register and have one in your name. I was considering getting a used until I found this out, it feels better getting a new one anyway. Especially since that free game deal is coming out and you plan on getting Pokemon: GOF or Luigi's Mansion. You must have a registration for that. Just going to have to wait for the next deal I guess.. I also bought Fire Emblem and don't even own the 3DS yet, heh.

This is true.

My wife (a former Walmart manager) has told me stories of console return attempts. The system mandates the serial to be able to finish the return. The systems purchased there also record the date sold with the serial number on the purchase.

Does anyone know why video game systems are like this? I don't know of anything else that requires the serial number to be recorded at time of purchase. Maybe some computers?

If it were Target (90 day return policy) then probably, but most places only have a 30 day.

Both appear to be sold out. :( I really wanted to pick it up to try the Monster Hunter demo (came out today.) Does anyone know if Newegg restocks sold out items, never used them before, could someone PM me if they do?

How many fanboys does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

10, 1 to do it & 9 to complain how much better the 1st one was.

I was on the fence with this, until the initial deal went out of stock, so I ended up going with the Mario Kart 3DS XL $199 bundle since I'd play Mario Kart anyways the value proposition seemed to be pretty equivalent unless I'm missing something. $169 with no game or $199 with a $30+ game I'd buy anyways seemed a fair wash to me. Now just have to pick up Fire Emblem over the weekend since it seems Amazon can't keep it in stock.

That's exactly what I did. It would have been nice to get in on a MK7 bundle deal, but I was LTTP.

I'm with the many others still on the fence. If the XL were available in black or white I would've bought one last holiday season. I wouldn't have minded either if it included a digital only MK 7 since Mario Kart is one of those games I want to be able to access instantaneously if I want to kill time.

It'll happen eventually but for now I can afford to wait.
