Just curious.  Anyone know if this is going to be available at all major retailers such as Best Buy, Target and/or Walmart?  I'll likely go with BB but I'm likely going to GS today as a back up.

They should, though I recall the Pikachu one never coming to BestBuy. Don't recall about Animal Crossing, but I recall them having that, so it's anyones guess. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

It would be nice if you could get exclusive X & Y content for buying just these systems.

bestbuy is toss up, i might or might now. they had the animal crossing 3ds xl, but not the pikachu, but this one should be available at all major retailers.

Thanks for the feedback.  BB is a bit in and out and it also gives me an idea about how many will be out there if it's open to most retailers.  I was very lucky to find the Pikachu one in store after Target canceled my preorder the day after it was put up on the site.

You should be able to.  I was able to preorder the Wind Waker WiiU the day it was announced in store.

I'm thinking about getting the blue one (getting X and blue is darker) but red is my favorite color. I just don't want the 3DS to be bright red.

There's a PS4 thread, an Xbox thread, A Wii U special edition thread...if you don't like it don't open the thread. Or maybe go cry to Cheapy who I'm sure will be happy to remove threads like this and just throw away a bunch of money he could have had.

I'd have bought these if they weren't so similar to the 2-tone standard red and blue xls. I think I'm more relieved(that I don't feel compelled to buy one) than disappointed, why disappointed you ask? Because Nintendo has several Japan-only Pokemon xl models already(charizard, eevee, gold/black ) that are much sharper and special looking.

It's nice they're doing something though.

You and others are missing the point.  Not opening the thread doesn't solve anything since it's still on the front page of the deals.

 

And you're right, all those threads exist, and none of them are really deals.  I'm sure one of the main reason's they're allowed to exist is because they make money for the website via referrals.  But if we're going by that logic, why not make a new thread for every new game that is released so that CAG can get as much referral money as possible?

Eh, 200$ and no game. Not sure if want, especially since I only paid 160$ for my Pikachu XL.

I was hyped for this announcement, but now im considering passing.

I'm not getting the option to pre-order either of them on Newegg.  Am I missing something, or are they really done taking orders?

^ Balls. I had the one I wanted in my cart at Newegg and for some reason I thought I checked out but apparently I didn't and like you said now they've pulled the listing.

Id never order from Newegg again, I preordered the Wii U Pro Controller and despite the Wii U launching, they didnt ship any until 2013, over a month and a half later. I cancelled immediately and just paid the extra cash to get it at the store.

i did preorder at gamestop as a backup, also be on the lookout for sites like target, walmart, bestbuy, as they might be other potential retailers to carry this.

nope, newegg is known to cancel orders at the last minute,due to issues such as insufficient inventory. LOL
aka we basically did not get any from the beginning from nintendo, but we will charge your credit card anyway in the mean time..
