Cheap 3DS Sale Thread

3ds cheap sale

I dunno. Its mainly a matter of which game you would rather have. I bought both only for the purpose of collecting the Zelda one to keep Factory sealed.

The Mario and Luigi bundle was to play on and was my first 3DS.

Monetary wise Zelda is going to be worth more in the future.


And on the subject of the pink 3DS. I am not saying I wouldn´t have got one if I could. I just wouldn´t want to leave the house with it.

Same reason I dont drive a pink car or use anything in pink. I do like one thing that is pink though. Its not a electronic.


Thanks the mario one is what I'm leaning toward also but the mario n luigi drawing on the console is it built into the 3ds or is it just a mario or luigi sticker? I always get every zelda game but eh the idea the zelda bundle has a download code is what doesn't grab my attention I prefer physical copies when it come to 1st party games and thanks for the reply

The design is built in. I don´t think any 3DS has stickers or decals. Its etched into the system. Same with Zelda.

I don't know why everyone is crying out the Pink 3DS XL. It's the one I own and the color is pleasing to the eyes, i'm also a fan of the white color for the inside. I have gotten comments, as I'm a dude but I just don't care. I my get another design down the road but am happy with it anyway, though I have to say that Theatrythm one is one I would consider purchasing.

I'm not one to go around sporting pink, not bright pink anyway - not because of its stigma, but because I'm not big on the color; I'm also not big on other popular colors, to be honest (blue... yuck). Anyway, when I first saw the pink/white 3DS XL I HAD to have it. It's gorgeous. Great shade of pink and the white interior is also great.

And kudos for not caring. Pink used to be a "boy color" anyway.

But yeah, that Theatrythm model is nice.

You never lived in the 80's then. Lots of boys wore pink especially in the skateboard scene.

I don't recall if the ones on sale were the pure pink XL's (do they sell those here?) or the pink/white ones, but if it's the latter, I don't really understand the big stigma with them. If it bugs you that much, I can't imagine it's too difficult to find some big stickers to place over the front and back of the clam shell, since the inside of the unit is white. That costs what, an extra $5-$10 on top of the $35 for the system? Still a pretty awesome deal.

 

Edit: Or you can buy a case like this and not see the pink at all.

I can't imagine that Animal Crossing: New Leaf has seen many sales, right?

Seriously?  It's one of the best-selling titles on the 3DS.

 

*EDIT*

 

Realized what you mean, it got down to $22 last year and has been below $30 multiple times.

I'm pretty sure he means sales as in being discounted, not units sold.

 

Black Friday was probably the last significant sale. If you have GCU it will be $28 from Best Buy now.

I love that care but find it super ironic that it's about 25% the same shade of pink and know that a lot of people who wouldn't carry the pink system would still use that case.

Probably true. Guess if you throw in a little blue everything works out.

Well it's not probably something a ton of people are looking for and seems to have been this price for a while but it's something I heard about the other day and quite want now.  

 

Aliens Infestation $10.36 from a couple well rated Prime sellers.

 

Seems to be a pretty decent Metroidvania game that was largely overlooked because it came out after the DS was pretty much dead.  Picked it up cartridge only from GS today for $9.53 with tax so for less than a dollar more I figure I may as well return it and get a complete new copy.

Destructoid has a 10% off link for play-asia. Play-asia has a few interesting buys, like kid icarus for $30, or the LE of SMT IV for $43.

New Beginning is awesome...I can't wait for the next one...Hometown Story is pretty bad though, pass on it, it's hard to control, very shallow and pretty basic overall.

I submitted a PM to Amazon, if they lower the price of Hometown that comes with the plush I'll consider getting it since I know someone who would get a kick out of it. Had the game originally pre-ordered at Amazon but ended up canceling because of all the negative reviews.

Looks fun, and cheap enough for me.  Nabbed one; thanks!

 

Incidentally, i've ordered from hitgaming(through Amazon) a bunch of times, and they've always proven quick and reliable.

They have a bunch of other cool looking decals for xl's.  Thanks for the link!  I may pick up a slime decal for the blue xl I own.

I know, I use to have the slime decal on my blue 3DS XL before I sold it.  That link was specifically for those people that were fortunate enough to get a $35 Pink 3DS XLs.

I'm down with that, I had not realized this website existed, so I thought I'd mention that the link you provided offered more than just that one decal since they seem to specialize in custom decals for all types of 3ds(xl)s.  Also picked up a triforce decal for my zelda xl.  Will probably pick up either the kirby or the sylveon decal for the pink one for my daughter.  Blue slime is for my son's xl.
