So it's basically trading a 3DS for a less portable 3DS.

Seeing how many times the Wii U dropped in price looks like you'll never buy one.

Bought Horizon Zero Dawn, KH 2.8 (limited edition), and Berserk (which includes a $10 gc).
total came out to around 118 w/tax.
Waste of money? Absolutely.

How long do these gift card offerings typically last? Through the end of the pre-order period?
With Dell, no one knows for sure, not even Dell.
For anyone who wants to get extra psyched for this, here's the Official Topic on NeoGAF: http://www.neogaf.co...1#post230734734
If it wasn't for them bringing out a PC version which still has an unknown release date, I would get this.

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.
You make money on game sales.
Nintendo is the only console company that never loses money on hardware sales, unlike Sony and MS. Thus they keep releasing hardware that's 1 gen older than the others and use "creative gimmicks" to fill the gap. $99 for a 3DS sounds low but the hardware is ancient by today's standards and it does not cost much to produce. The $199 XL is a ripoff by today's standards for the hardware that it has. Nintendo easily banks $99 of that $199.
