I was JUST thinking about upgrading from an old 3DS XL to a New 3DS. I was leaning New XL but $100 is super tempting, especially with good word-of-mouth on the smaller New model and the faceplates. Doesn't look like this comes packed in with anything (?) but if the only other option is a $200 Amazon-exclusive model with an $8 pack-in it's a no-brainer.

One day they will release a black N3DS, but not today 😭


If ya look at the announcement link, it says there will be a white and black version! At last!

Holy crap, finally a black N3DS, but of course it has to release on Black Friday of all days. The universe has a sick sense of humor.

I want more info about which retailers will have these. It would probably be easiest to grab on Amazon but they already have an exclusive XL.

I already have a New 3DS XL and I love it ... but $100 for a second, smaller one, doesn't sound too bad.

Why is it so cheap? Sure, Switch is on the way soon, but this is literally half the price of a standard New 3DS XL and just a tad bit more than a 2DS. Even if it's just the one day for Black Friday, I don't see how Nintendo profits from this.

I was thinking the same thing. I'd imagine Nintendo got some sort of deal for a mass production,otherwise I can't see them making much off these.

 

I'm tempted as hell to buy one and I already own a 3DS... and the nes mini is out Friday.

 

 

Fuck

You make money on game sales.

I've been considering stepping up to the New XL. Figures that all the sales/bonuses/styles come with the New vanilla 3DS, but not the New XL.

Smaller? I thought this was the "New 3DS XL" version also?

this could feasible be sold at a profit. I mean 2DS is sold at a profit at $80 so really $100 may still net them $10 or so or break even

This is everything I have ever wanted in a 3DS. And to think I paid almost three times that price for the original.

I sold my Majora "new" XL (used, but for more than I paid new) and used some of that money to buy the Mario "new" 3DS. I liked the larger screens of the XL, but it was too unweildy to take anywhere. Have been playing a lot more 3DS games now that I actually take it with me.

Know that this is going to be just like the Pikachu, Zelda and Fire Emblem 3DS. They will not make anymore after this date or if they do very very few.

 

You're asking why it's so cheap, we'll it's a Black Friday hot item. Just like the Splatoon / Smash Bros. Wii U Bundle, this is cheap, only sold on BF and will never be made again.

 

Nintendo will sell a great amount of these too and make their money back on game sales. You may be able to find this after BF but don't count on it.

The Mario 3d Land bundle from earlier this year was 150, so I guess this one is priced for the holidays. Sounds like a good deal. I hope the stock is high as 3ds was the highest selling console last holiday season. (I think)

I already have a N3DS but I might pick this one up to keep at home.
My traveling N3DS have few marks all over it from being dropped often.


With it being so cheap I wonder if this will be the last set of theme 3DS coming out?
The Switch is coming out next year and seems to replace the 3DS.

I have a new XL, and never use it cause it's so big to carry around. Is the regular way smaller or just the screen? And is the battery life significantly worse on the small? I'd be looking to "upgrade" my XL to a small.

I'm very tempted by this but I'd really prefer the XL, I can't go back to a smaller screen :( I guess I'll decide on BF.

Any word on which stores will have it? I'm hoping GameStop does

I wasn't gonna bother upgrading my 3ds but if I see one of these somewhere for a cool hundo just sitting there, I'm in. Not gonna go crazy trying to get one.

On one hand, a $100 New 3DS is a price I could live with, on the other hand I have a 2DS I barely use.

FINALLY 

There's a black one.

I would've paid $200 for one easy.

Even though I'm happy with a half-price deal on its face, that very same deal makes the coveted Black N3DS that much harder to lay hands on. And it's being released on Black Friday. Kill me now.

 

Now I may never have  a chance to hold my Black N3DS.

 

Here's hoping I can find someplace breaking the streetdate.

I want this, but I'm not sure if I want it enough to go out on Black Friday...

If Best Buy sells this online, I might get it.

 

But I'll most likely only be getting it to have a second 3DS to do trades in Pokemon games. Would there be any issues though, like would I be unable to because of the save files or something? I plan to play on XL, and only use this one as a backup.
