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.

Got my trade-in done.
 
It went like this
 
1. Took nephew's 3DS(he has no digital games, all saves on respective carts).
2. Traded in said 3DS.
3. Brought home the N3DSXL.
4. System transfer from my 3DSXL(with many digital titles/dlc).
5, System transfer complete taking about 7~ hours. 
6. Gave my newly formatted 3DSXL to Nephew and kept the N3DSXL.
 
He gets an upgrade and so do I so that works for me.
 
This at least allowed me to skip the issue of possibly having to do the system transfer at gamestop/mall or the alternative of buying it at full price and then returning once more for the trade-in.
 
On a side note, has anyone notice their N3DSXL analog stick to feel a bit light(not very tense) and make some cricky noise from time to time?
 
I have a feeling that I might have a some what dysfunctional analog stick but the prospect of returning and doing another system transfer sounds terrible.


If you had a computer, you could've done a pc-based transfer. I did that method and it was pretty easy. It only took about 20 min for the license transfer and I had to buy a card reader for about $5-6. Also, the analog stick was designed to be a bit more loose than the older models.

I really wish Nintendo would be more adopting of Cross Buy. I'd be more inclined to buy the Binding of Isaac for a fourth time if they did.

I ended up trading in my old 3ds xl. I wanted to stack it with trading in my vita, but they wouldn't do it because the stupid serial sticker gradually wore off. I had the original box and everything, but they couldn't do anything without the sticker.

I'm thinking of just doing the trade-in at the store and tether the systems to my phone to do the license transfer and then doing the back-up tp pc method.
