If you aren't man enough to play with Pikachu in public then you aren't a man at all.

Anyone know if you can transfer over your downloaded stuff? I bought some eShop stuff, if I can transfer it I'm stupid tempted to buy this.

I have an Ambassador 3DS, does that stuff transfer over too? My googlefu is failing me.

Yes, but you need both systems and an internet connection to do the transfer.

Awesome.

Now I either need to have enough willpower to save the money or enough alcohol to forget I made the purchase, haha.

Thanks!

Exactly. If you care so much about how other people perceive you in public then you are a small child.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

The alcohol option seems more satisfiable, lol. :beer:

If you're talking about Target, maybe. The DPCI merged with the standard blue one a while ago, so you may find one, you just have to ask them to look.

Aren't the 3ds region locked so if you get one from UK you can't play US games?

I'm confused by the people who think it's okay to, as a grown man, play a 3DS in public but not a Pokemon 3DS. Trust me, there is not much separating the two in the eyes of the general public.

Reputable and GameFAQS don't go together. That guy is just wrong.


I was wondering if somebody was going to catch that.

I actually ended up selling that one off ebay to avoid fees. =P


At least you won't get anybody trying to return it to you, I would assume that might happen once this comes out in a few weeks.

I'd like to know as well, several people throughout the thread said Target doesn't take pre-orders however someone said that they pre-ordered 2? I'm assuming through GS? I'd like to grab this at Target with my red card. lol

Yup. I remember when I first started there, in all the training they made you watch and read, they sword up and down they would never sell alcohol or tobacco products. Well at least they are shooting for 50%!

YES! Time to trade in/sell. This was the only reason why I would upgrade to an XL (if there was a LE XL I wanted)

Why is people so worried? People wont care and you shouldnt too. Any fan/pokemon fan or cool chick will maybe give you a nice comment. dont worry about the negative comment, you know there will always be haters out there. Just rock what you like.

While you can certainly do what you want with your time, I seriously doubt this is going to sell out in the first day and will probably be pretty readily available throughout the sale given that Target prominently featured it in their ad. While it's a good price, it's still $160 which isn't exactly cheap to most consumers, especially for a system with no game that has been available since August of last year and in a color scheme that appeals to a very narrow group of Pokemon fans and collectors.



Well, I'm not even a pokemon fan and if I had money to burn I'd get this.

I wouldn't call the number of Pokemon fans narrow and certainly amongst those fans I would say the Pikachu design would be the most in demand/popular.

I find that for Nintendo products, these limited sorts of things do tend to sell out and quick compared to say the "special edition" x boxes that you can usually get for cheaper if you just wait it out.

How much is TIV at Gamestop?

I really want this, and I don't want to bother with those resell prices. But don't have the funds so I'm going to trade in my current 3DS.


EDIT: Just check and it's 25, screw that.

That is just hilarious! Do you have a credit card? $160 at Target is a nice bit of money off the price you'll pay otherwise. With a credit card you could pay it off in a month or so and still come out far ahead of buying it elsewhere.

While it's not a huge step up, it looks like Target (as long as your local one has a mobile kiosk) is giving about $50*. If I remember correctly, I sold mine for about $80 when the XL came out.

[edit] *it's as a gift card, however

That Charizard XL is awesome! Europe is actually getting the Fire Emblem 3DS as an XL in April. I don't know why they didn't do that here.


That's because Nintendo of Europe is awesome, and Nintendo of America hates us ;_;

I don't mind getting a gift card actually since I wanted to get it at target anyways and have a gift card lying around.

As for the credit card suggestion not sure but i'll see if I can do that. I'd love to get this as I'm a huge pokemon fan. But kinda want to wait still if they announce the charizard one but I doubt it though since europe didn't even get it.

That's good then! You can look up your trade-in values on the website too (sometimes they are off a little, but not by much).

Next time I'm in, I'll see if it's in the system yet and if we have any.
