Yes, this is complicated how? If folks don't have a #0 screwdriver by now they aren't true geeks.


It's not complicated but it seems like an extra unnecessary step and it's just tedious. It just seems like a really easily remedied design oversight to me

In the first two posts of this thread, could either person put descriptions and links to:

 

Screen covers for not scratching

http://www.bestbuy.c...1&skuId=8887159

Case covers that look nice. The new one is slightly bigger, do not recall where to find it exactly.

http://www.amazon.co...nintendo 3ds xl

AC Adapters

http://www.amazon.co...s xl ac adapter

 

List some stuff that has been posted in this thread.

So I called best buy customer service line. They said it was impossible to change the Majoras LE 3ds to instore pickup. They said their system would not let them do it.

Glass half full guy I am. Could've been non-replaceable. Could've been proprietary memory. At least it sounds like there is a capability for wireless transfers for photos, etc. looking forward to testing that.

As mentioned before that case won't work for the New 3DS XL. Even the out side fit fine, all the holes for carts, stylus, etc are all in the wrong spots. The New 3DS XL version of it is currently only available as an import from Japan.

There's problems with the listed items.  The zagg screen protectors have a rubbery sticky feeling, unless they changed their formula.  Two, the case covers listed are for the original 3ds xl, while the new 3ds xl cases are only available for import at the moment.

So did anybody else that online preordered the 3ds xl Majora's Mask from Best Buy notice that their $200 credit card pending charge disappeared and when you click on the status update from the order email it leads to a page that doesn't exist?

 

Uh yeah.  This isn't looking good.

I am aware of this.  That is why I said:

"The new one is slightly bigger, do not recall where to find it exactly." 

I know the one I pointed out doesn't fit exactly and was unsure why, somebody could link the one that does,  The link can be changed when it is not sold overseas only.

I have the ZAGG screen on my 3DS XL and it is perfect.

I am aware of the cases being different, was unsure why other than maybe the size.  Still, link the one that does fit it until it is sold over here.

Everything looks good still on my order. I got it in thanks to the CAGs that posted. I missed the GameStop preorder.

If it looks odd, it never hurts to call. If they have to "fix" something, it is better to get in line early. Good luck!

I personally hate Zagg screen protectors. I put one on my XL and it was awful.


I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

Thank you.  I was just wondering if the OP or the second poster could add information to their posts.  It would be so people do not have to rummage through this thread to find this specific post. 

 

I will bookmark it.

This is the Internet. Nobody reads any posts. They just come into a thread, assume their question is NEW AND ORIGINAL, and post it right away expecting for others in the thread to jump at the chance to help. Same goes for anybody who sees an article show up on reddit or whatever: post away, regardless of how many times that same information might have shown up already.

So you CAN'T change the 3DS XL faceplates?










Totally kidding. :P

It's a pre-auth. They use it to check and see if you have the funds. It falls off and sometimes they check once a month, then it falls off till they ship it and actually charge you.

The site part I can't help you on, but their site is real screwy lately. Just check your purchase history under your account and your order status through there.

Does anyone know if you can trade in a third party adapter with the 3DS at GameStop? Don't know if that has been asked yet. I'd prefer to keep my Nintendo one because I'm so fancy.

I traded in my Vita with a universal charger and wasn't deducted anything, so I would say yes from my pov

Wow, I'm surprised Hori was on the ball this time around.  I guess couple month gap gave them time to create the US versions.  Well I got a blue ray version incoming, I'll let you guys know if it's worth it.
