#13700644 GS: Get $150 toward Switch for New 3DS, WiiU trade in

Posted by MPoWeRM3 on 26 April 2017 - 08:19 PM

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


So it's basically trading a 3DS for a less portable 3DS... with no games. ;)

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

Possibly. For Nintendo, I started with NES, then SNES. Never bought the N64 & Gamecube (both had no games I want), then got both Wii and Wii U. So I'm not surprised I might need to sit out another couple gens of Nintendo systems. The problem with the Switch for me is it doesn't have any games I want, just like N64 and GC, and does not look like there's any for as far as I can see, exept maybe the new Mario game. I did own every portable Nintendo systems since the Gameboy Advance because they were are relatively cheap. So if they bring a version of the Switch without the dock to the market for $200 or less, I may consider it since that will be in my disposable income range, even if there will only be a handful of games that I like for the life of the system. I did that with the Wii U, paying $200 new for the 8GB model and use a 128GB USB flash drive that I had lying around to solve the storage constraints... then bought just 10 games total (the ones I care) throughout its life.

I don't know, we'll see. I'm not going to buy a system with no games I like for full price, or the current markup pricing due to limited supply. Like I said earlier, there's no rush until there are games I care for. By then, maybe they will sell a striped down version for $200. ;)

will only buy one when there's a undocked model with higher capacity battery for $200 or less. i just don't see this thing as a home console. There's also no games to play yet, for people already with a WiiU, so no rush.

I'm in for a digital copy of conan just because

There is/was a save bug that I encountered near the end of the game when I played this many years ago and it forced me to start all over. I sold the game right afterwards. There is a way to avoid this bug but I didn't know until it happened and did research. You better look into this before playing... you've been warned.

Holy shit!!!


Am I reading this right?
RE 4,5 6, Revelations 2, Remake and 0 for $20?!




Yet, the triple pack (4,5,6) is $29.75 in the same sale. Makes so much sense.

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.

very waste of money. they are single player games so no rush to play. work on some of the backlog instead and wait for these to be cheap enough to be in the backlog also. i know u have some, who doesn't these days. lol

Okay, new question: is Dell customer support amenable to applying gift cards to pre-orders that you've already made?

They will need to cancel and reorder.

At this point, mine as well wait for it to be sub $10, free on GwG, or free with next Remedy game.

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.

If it wasn't for them bringing out a PC version which still has an unknown release date, I would get this.

No Xbone? Sadness. Was going to pm this at BB and use $30 of RZ certs.... Looks like it's only available thru third party sellers on walmart's site so maybe that's why. Bummer either way.

Waiting for it on EA Access. :P

#13512868 Mario Themed Limited Edition New 3DS thread

Posted by MPoWeRM3 on 07 November 2016 - 07:50 PM

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.

They will be available tomorrow when the code is over. :/

just a damn shame I'll have to wait for the Scorpio to dip my toes into the UHD Blu-Ray waters. 

No you don't. The Xbox One S already has UHD BR.
