Does anyone know how long Best Buy or GS will be open for their midnight releases? I was thinking about swinging by at like 3 AM to grab both my preorders before leaving for work


No way they would be open at 3 ... maybe 2 am tops but even that is taking a chance.

For those of you who have pre ordered the game only, did anyone get the code for the Oracle of Ages download yet? I got my email saying its ready for pick up, but no DL code yet.

 

I called about it and they said even tho it has shipped, the e-mail will go out after the game's release date (so sometime after midnight). But the person kept saying it'll show up in my "Digital Library" and kept saying they need to check with the manufacturer when they are getting the codes. I'm inclined to think he just said "Generic Answer #2953 When Dealing With Crazy Cheap Ass Gamers".

Just curious though - if you're not into Zelda, why not wait til next week and get a normal 3DS XL on sale for around 150 somewhere? Not being judgmental, just genuinely curious why you're getting this one.

 

I'm not really into Zelda either but I really like the gold color.  I'll probably also sell my code because Nintendo's online system blows and I'd rather have a physical copy.

Can you confirm the included copy of Zelda is a code that requires you to download the game?

Geez, BB's web site shows none of the stores around me have the bundle available for in-store pickup... what gives?

Weird, like 9/10 stores in my area have it available for pickup.

 

Part of me hopes it sells out fast, otherwise I'm not gonna be able to resist getting it next week =/

Thank you. Nintendo makes zero sense. The Animal Crossing bundle had the game preinstalled. The Pokemon XL wasn't a bundle. And now the Zelda XL has a code that requires redemption.

What gives?

How are other people pre-ordering for in-store pickup then? Just pure luck?

Nintendo has never made sense. They are sitting on so many possible money fountains and never make use of them

Oh sweet... a switch must have just flipped on the BB site because a bunch of stores around me now have the bundle available for pickup. I might wait a few more hours to see if Walmart's site lowers to sale price.

It has been stated by Nintendo

 

It's the ultimate item to take on your adventure: a gold and black 3DS XL emblazoned with the Triforce on the top and bottom. Includes a Nintendo eShop download code for The Legend of Zelda™: A Link Between Worlds game.

Nintendo makes absolutely no sense. 

 

Original Zelda 3DS System? Physical game.

Wii U DX with Nintendoland? Physical game.

Fire Emblem? Preinstalled.

Animal Crossing? Preinstalled.

Zelda Wii U? DL code.

Zelda XL? DL code.

It completely makes sense for Nintendo. 

 

Giving you a digital copy = that copy will never become a used game

Wow, I never thought of it like that till you posted it. Thank you.  :roll:

 

Going form physical to digital was a logical and understandable jump. However, going from pre-loaded (as in, on the system by default) to code makes no sense. They went from a system where you couldn't do anything, to a system where you can at least sell the code. It makes no sense. Especially when you consider Wind Waker HD also counted towards the digital purchase program.

I called BBY Elite Plus and had them do an in-store pickup for Walmart's price.

 

Just have the rep. search .com's weekly ad section for the ad, the 199.96 price and "valid 11/22-11/23" were all I needed for the PM. I'm EST, so it's already 11/22 technically. Going to the next state over to pick it up along with a physical copy of the game, and a pair of Astro A40s with no tax :)

 

(shameless self-promotion: I will be looking to get rid of the download code, PM me with offers)

You should pay it forward. :)

Need any club Nintendo codes?

If this is anything like Wind Waker HD, the value will plummet to around $20. I know people were trying to sell those at about $35 at release, but over time the price kept dropping. This might do better because it's a newer game, but it will probably be lower than $30.

No, sorry. I just bought the Pokemon red 3DS XL, which I now need to sell since I'm getting this one. I can't justify owning 2 3DS

'es ATM since I just dropped 1k+ on a new build.

 

Need to get rid of the download code to recoup some of the cost :(
