So I purchased 3 3DS' from various people, all in good condition only to find out that the serial numbers were missing on all 3! Needless to say GS wouldn't take them so missed out on $300 credit (after returns)
Is this common for the OG 3DS?
Total investment for the 3 was only $130 so I might be able to recover some cash but a downer nonetheless
My gamestop wouldn't let me trade in my vita because the serial had come off through wear, but they mentioned that nintendo was okay with it. From others' experiences, I'm sure it's safe to say it's very YMMV.
