In Topic: New 3DS XL $169 at Wal-Mart

gamestop's recent in the news about their sales practices and their "circle of life" policy that counts "NEW" games and system sales against their used sales for the employees to meet quotas is unfair & detestable.    Basically discriminating against "new" buyers. 

Gamestop just goes threw periods of great shittiness. Most def shop elsewhere.

Hope they start making the Pros like this. Not even really tempting since it's just a redesigned original 

Yup agreed...I'd love to get rid of my regular PS4 and get a white pro model. I got two PS4s at the moment...a 20th anniversary model (unopened) and my launch PS4. I really see no other reason to upgrade other than I want it to match my white XBONE. I think consoles look killer in white.

I go tthe Famicom classic too and it's the worst thing ive ever seen in my life. Tiny cables that are hard wired into the console. Oh well, I guess at least it has 2 controllers if you have a siamese twin

Get a long HDMI. I wanted one of those too, but those controllers are so freaking tiny. No idea why Nintendo scaled them down. They went all in on the miniaturization thing.

I hear lots of bad things about these controllers failing within a few months of use. Can anyone comment on their durability? Also if the thumb sticks are tighter feeling? I think the normal XBONE controller is pretty good as is, but the thumb sticks are a little loose. The overall feel is great on the heads esp button placement, I just like a tighter feel like a PlayStation controller. Otherwise I'm pretty interested in getting one for my XBONE.

I want one of these now that the mods are worth my time. My Gamestop said they got a shipment in Wednesday and it sold out already. They also said it was about a month in between so they probably aren't getting more soon. 

 

I can wait, but Fuck ebay flippers. 

If you care about the mods and playing roms then a retron 5 is the way to go...it has the easiest loop hole to add roms and the memory is expandable. No custom firmware is needed, you just load the roms from the retron cheats area. Theirs tons of youtube vids on it. This simple exploit lets you play Genesis, NES, SNES, FAMICOM, All Gameboy systems, and Master system roms. The only hick up is you need to pop in a NES cart if you want to play an NES game ect...but that just adds to the old school fun.

 

I wish I got one earlier than I did, on NEOGAF some guy modded it to run just about everything but the N64. He's no longer making custom Firmware.

 

I personally want this NES as a gift for my nephew.
