Is there any way to get free shipping from Nintendo?
Don't hesitate, pay the $5 and be happy. I scoffed at paying $30 for the dual pack just two weeks ago and now I'm running around everywhere and begging help to find them.

A job choice. Interesting. I've never heard that either. I guess we all choose the jobs that we have. With nothing else taken into account. I don't want any credit here. What is wrong you people. I have my own professional satisfaction as a professor. You confuse me so much. I think FB has ruined so many of you. Just look in the mirror at yourself for like 5 minutes straight. Go from there.

Is Yoshi's Wolly World pretty fun?

Thanks guys for your input. Hope Gerstmann's impressions were off and this does turn out to be good game.

I think they're OK, but after looking at the other plate options, I couldn't find any that I liked. They just aren't impressive, so cant' see why I'd spend another $20-50 for some plates of things I don't care much for. I wish they'd utilize this aspect of the console more. Why is Pikachu the only single-Pokémon plate option? I want some Charizard plates (other than the expensive ones from the Anniversary console) or Blaziken or a Fire Emblem set that isn't just cover art in plate form.
Isn't it obvious? When a bunch of people are not N3DS owners, then these come out, a bunch of new owners result. Those owners then research their new device and find out Nintendo is consistently being inconsistent with the display quality on the consoles. Just because Nintendo's been deliberately shitty for years doesn't mean it's OK to be deliberately shitty now. I kind of heard about the TN/IPS drama over the years, but never played a 3DS until this one. That's when I saw video examples of the difference and saw how different the image quality can be, in varying conditions.
So, yes, it's reasonable to call Nintendo out for still being shitty after years of being shitty. Advertising these as a "special, limited edition price" isn't a defense for inconsistent hardware specs and not-infrequent hardware flaws like the speaker, display, and light bleed issues we've seen. These aren't like BF TVs, where they look imperceptibly different, giving up one or two minor specs for a lower price (like the Samsung TVs that cut out smart remotes and Bluetooth). If Nintendo were cutting $50 off and making everything 100% TN at all times, while the higher-dollar models were 100% IPS, that would be different. Instead, you're handing over money with no certainty of what you are paying for exactly.

WOW, there repair service is crap now to uh? I can for sure see how the effects of the Wii U and low profits over the last 5 years has begin to take it's toll. They used to have top notch rewards program, CS was beyond belief at how good it was, system quality was pretty good, and the most important thing was the games where always well made and fun to play.
I guess all good things come to an end at some point.

Anyone having luck finding screen protectors for this model in stores? My system is supposed to arrive today and I realized that I should probably have a protector ready before I open it.

Yeah, I've never understood the "dated tech" arguments myself. I can just as easily play the arcade Donkey, or jump over and play one of the SNES games, or the Wii U Tropical Freeze. Now I can agree that pricing can be an issue in regards to old tech, but if the price is right, why not?
Where the 3DS is out dated in certain areas, it still offers some great games and some solid 3D for the price, so it's still kind of an unique device in the handheld market.
I haven't bought a next gen system yet, as besides the graphic upgrades, I don't really see any other improvements over my PS3/360 that makes it worth my time to upgrade. I still have a rather HUGE last gen backlog, so by the time I'm ready for a new system, they'll be below $200 and have a great library of games I can then get cheap.

I honestly don't know why anyone would be getting this unless it's for someone maybe 10 and under as a disposable item. The system is dated and the screen is so small.

Nintendo is infamous when it comes to underestimating demand. At least Nintendo of America.
This is going to be like the Amiibos all over again. (By that mean I the original demand, Amiibo prices are shit now).

The lack of GCU when they decide to add 'Black Friday' to the name of the sale is disappointing. Now I'll just wait for Amazon to price match, and buy from there. I'll do the same on Black Friday. The only reason I bought from Best Buy was due to GCU...so when it doesn't apply, I'll shop elsewhere.

Jesus I did not think it would get that high, how much you ended up selling it. I think i will hold on to mine just to complete the set

My god, I hadn't looked at Breach and Clear prices on eBay for a while. They are literally selling for more than the system they're played on... I mean, my god, there's a sold copy that went for $184!
