I cannot find a link to PO these anywhere. Nobody seems to know and nobody seems to mention. 

 

Unless there is a link to PO these, why is this being shared here?

omg so much yellow. Do want. I do kinda question the wisdom of spending $200 on a 3DS at this point but if I can score one I will probably bite anyway.

$277.59 for the bundle after tax and shipping. Approaching Switch territory right there. Sucks GS doesn't even give you a 1st party charger.

I saw that with the switch as well. I don't get how sellers are getting away with putting up listings, as they don't have any physical item to actually send the buyer. What's the point? From both sides, the buyer and seller?

Gotta admit I would be tempted if that was a damn first party charger just to use up my GS credit.

I'm getting memories from 2014 when the Pikachu 3DSXL came out at Target. Traveled about 25 miles to the only store that supposedly had stock available, but when I arrived I wasn't able to get one. :/ Now here I have another chance to jump on another Pikachu edition, and Nintendo releases it just a month before the Switch. Damn you, Nintendo. Why must you be this way. >_<

Welp I'm not sure if I will upgrade to this system.

 

My Pikachu 3DS XL just started having the annoying vibrating 3D slider issue that makes a distorted sound when the volume is high. Not sure if it's worth much now :(

i feel like the 3ds xls shouldnt be more than 150 since you could pay 100 more and get a handheld/console - switch..

It's an awesome looking device. Just makes me wish I really had any games to play or any desire to play it. I'd probably pick it up. As it currently stands tho, unfortunately I don't need it

I write posts and make content and sometimes even podcast on this website I created: It's called Gamerations. Check it out if you think I'm a good internet guy.

When you go on the Gamestop website it says that the Pikachu 3DS XL is worth 80$ cash or $100 trade in.

There's a $25 extra credit promotion going on now when you trade in a 3DS.

I pulled the trigger on this today. I was thinking about getting a Switch, but there's no games I want for it. I'll finally be able to replace my launch black 3ds. I've wanted a Pikachu 3ds forever.
