Er, the Monster Hunter LE does come with the game.

I tried best buy in store this morning. They had nothing for that Zelda sku. I did find several wii u gc adapters in store though.

Does the New 3DS XL have the SD card slot under the back panel like the New 3DS, requiring a screwdriver to remove it at launch to plug into a computer and transfer data from our old SD cards?

If so, lame. I don't want to take a screwdriver to my MM N3DS XL on day one just to get the rest of my data transferred and risk stripping one of these cheap screws in the process.

Looks like im going to have to wait till Feb 13th to see if any of my BB's will have any Majoras Mask New 3DS XL's in-store for sale

 

Im sure the pre-orders of the MM N3DS will be available at other places such as Amazon but I like to keep my Business to Best Buy if I can help it

Amazon won't be getting it (aside from 3rd parties).

Well guys, can you tell me how this is supposed to work. How are we supposed to do a system transfer when from SD to micro sd?

That is really stupid that they require that for the n3ds but im pretty sure the xl wont be the case all i know is that it uses a micro sd now

if you have both 3ds, there's an application that does it from within settings. If not, not sure.

Unless something has changed, Nintendo and Amazon have a beef with each other. https://www.cheapass...1812/?p=9878241

You don't system transfer by swapping cards.  Both systems connect to each other and the Internet and swap data.  You have to have access to the Internet and a wireless router.

So noone knows where you can buy that charging dock station?

I'd imagine it works on NA N3DSXL even if you import it... since it's not software or anything :D

I'd imagine import sites. Play Asia, etc.

Have you kept note of the serial numbers etc? One powerful thing you can do if they return an incorrect 3ds for example is to show proof of the receipt with the serial number. There's also a good chance the manual or one of the pamphlets will have the serial number as well which you can show does not add up. You're boned regardless which is selling an anniversary PS4 on ebay is really risky, but its better than nothing.

What I mean is that they can simply send back something of equal weight.  I sold a razor of all things for $70 on eBay once, got a complaint that it didn't work, agreed to take it back, they sent me back a box with some random kitchen utensils in it.  Tracking showed that I received a package back from the buyer, and that's all eBay cared about.

Anyone know if the New 3DS d-stick can be used for games supporting Circle Pad Pro? This would be a major incentive for me to upgrade.

I have a feeling that the MH4 bundle is probably more limited in numbers than the MM one.

 

To all the price gouging resellers out there, remember, you don't wanna end up like this idiot here:

*C-stick. It does work, but it's not an actual analog stick, so YMMV.

Wow, don't know how I missed that. Then again I did miss the blurb in the Direct about releasing more Marth me-bo's :)

Are GS requiring you to pay in full $230 for preordering the MH LE N3DS in store?

Talked to the nintendo rep at my target today who was updating the amiibo displays. (They show the exclusive rosalina on the touchscreen now) asked about the majoras mask 3ds they said since its not exclusive everyone will get them walmart target etc. I knew target would get them but really wanted to get at BB since i have credit to burn.

And Ebay didn't care? That seems really shitty. Damn

Well I would say you made out just as well.

Yes, it requires a screwdriver.

If MH4 bundle sell out before release I'm going to be pissed. I have too many downloaded games to lost if I trade my system in now.
