Didn't see this here. 

 

$200 for this sweet looking console. I know most people like the Famicom version, but I grew up with this and totally dig it. Would have been cooler if it wasn't an XL. 

 

Any who. Here is link to pre order. Allegedly Amazon Exclusive. Comes with DLC code for Mario Kart. It went up at about 2am ET today.

very cool but I usually avoid handheld stuff and don't need another money pit to start on

If I didn't already have the Galaxy N3DSXL, I'd be all over this.

At the moment, I am planning on selling my black NN3DS and covering the cost (Which I'm guessing will be about $60-$70) for this. 

 

Happy I didn't get the Metroid version now.

Sweet looking is subjective. I guess it's better than that nintendo controller one.

Would love to get this, but cannot justify buying it when I already have N3DSXL. This may be my favorite special edition 3DS system yet though.

Yea. This is also how I feel. 

 

(And I also feel like selling my black NN3DS for this, too.)

 

I'm a waffler.

I'd MUCH rather have the SFC Version of the N3DSXL. Anyone know if they have region locking on those?

I have at least 10 3ds systems. I have the original 2ds and pre ordered the Poke Ball version. I have the 3ds XL that looks like the NES controller. I should add this to complete the set.

I’m not sure you can continue to access this site.

Was there a confirmation that this is Amazon exclusive?

if this came out a year or 2 ago I’d have been all over it. Coming out now, though- no thanks. Too late.

I’m sure it’ll sell out though.

Wondering how many soccer moms will mistake this for snes classic because Nintendo likes to Nintendo..,

Just come out with a Pokemon game on the Switch already so I'm not tempted to buy this.

Yes, at least for me (I'm assuming it's tied to my purchase history), there is a big yellow banner announcing the availability of the unit on the main page of Amazon that says it is "Amazon exclusive".

Is the SE system Amazon exclusive or just the version that comes with Mario Kart?

Looks cool but meh. Its way too late in the 3DS cycle to be buying full priced new consoles. If this goes on sale like the New 3DS models did last year I'd be all over it, but no way in hell at $200. (Or if it came with a bundle of SNES games that were exclusive)

 

I'm still sitting on like 6 3DS consoles here too....

So would I, but the Japanese model is crazy expensive, and the EU version while better, isn't great price wise either. Honestly, the weight of the XL was always an issue for me, and after using the standard N3DS for awhile now, I doubt I could go back. But if I could get one of either of those models at a good price, I would grab one for collecting purposes.

 

Also, there are work around's for the region locking issue, so it may be something worth looking in to if you really want the other models, instead of the one offered here.

Amazon Exclusive? so it'll be $800 on November 28th?

I just bought the New 2DS XL because its small and lightweight.

I still have my older New 3ds XL as well.

 

If you want one get it now because once the pre-orders are gone it'll be going at a high price

I'm for sure going to keep an eye on this, as I'm interested in how this plays out. Amazon and "N" haven't always played nice with one another, so how or why they got an exclusive system is a huge question mark for me. Especially with the crap way Amazon ships things, and how they will pull an item for "investigations" once it does happen.

 

I agree with many others, that this is coming out a little on the late side, as this holiday will probably be the 3DS's last, and while this system looks cool enough, how many will be buying it? I'm sure this was only produced to get rid of the last of parts for the N3DS, and to help promote the SNES Mini this holiday. So yeah, I won't be shocked if it's gone rather quickly.

The female Corrin Player 2 amiibo goes for $50 new because it's exclusive to Amazon

Looks pretty cool and almost like there is texture Etc but I’m guessing upon further inspection it’s just a clevah paint job.
