I hate going to flea markets, they all have guns and force me to buy everything.
No that's a flee market, common mistake, you don't want to shop at one of those unless you're fast and know how to zig-zag.

So basically, there's nothing I can do about the games, since they're tied to the system. Once I registered my old NNID to the new 3DS (because I don't want lose my previous games and I don't plan to keep more than one 3DS), these games are now part of my NNID library and I'll always have to carry them for future system transfers; this 3DS will have nothing once it's been transferred or factory reseted.
Boy, do I wish Nintendo would just stick to voucher codes like everyone else.
Correct, those games are now yours. They cannot be restored to the system if you move your NNID somewhere else. They're branded onto your soul and you will carry their weight until the time of judgment comes, and Reggie will look to the deepest core of your being and say, "Pokemon Red... and Pokemon Blue."

What happens if I replaced the SD card, which contains the pre-installed games, already in the system with a new SD card before I turned it on? The 3DS will do the initial set-up and startup as usual, right? The pre-installed games will remains safely stored on that old SD card, and if I happen to do a system restore on that 3DS and I unlink my NNID before that, I can just slip in the old SD card with the pre-installed games and it'll be virtually good as new?
I don't think it's that simple, my understanding is that the game data is on the pre-installed SD card but the license for the games in the eShop is associated with the system itself. If you remove or change the SD card, you won't be able to play Pokemon Red or Blue, but you will be able to re-download them. If you do a system transfer to associate your NNID, it will overwrite the save data for those games (it even explicitly warned me to do a transfer *before* playing for this reason when I first started the system) but the licenses will now be associated with your NNID. After that point, you cannot reset the system or transfer your NNID to another one, but the licenses will no longer be associated with that system and the old SD card with the data for those games won't work. My evidence for this is:
1. Way back before NNIDs were a thing and the eShop was only associated with systems, I bought a LoZ 3DS and someone else's used 3DS with the Ambassador games. I wanted their games on my LoZ system, so I transferred LoZ -> Ambassador, waited a week, then transferred Ambassador -> LoZ. The games from that system had their save data deleted but they were added to my library, so they were absorbed and pulled back like a katamari. That behavior has changed slightly now that we have universal NNIDs, but I believe the behavior is the same if the system does not have an NNID associated with it.
2. Nintendo's information on factory reset lists what will and will not be reset
The key points are:

Same here and easier as PS+ member.
So what's the story on Dangan Ronpa? I'd really like it but I'm trying to decide whether I should just play the second or the first or both? I'm a big Ace Attorney fan so I figured it would be fun though it's hard to follow exactly how it works.
Also, Sherlock Holmes at 30 bucks.... c'mon!
Absolutely highly recommend Dangan Ronpa. Play the first, then the second. The second depends on you playing the first (it will explain any missing info eventually, but it won't be as interesting/shocking/etc if you don't have that background).

Haven't been able to follow the thread today.
So if anyone wants to catch me up, has any of the Best buy MM N3ds shipped yet?
I have my preorder still kicking, hasnt been canceled yet...(knock on wood), but it still is stuck in preparing order stage.
Hoping im not the only one, and pray that it ships tonite atleast.
Some people have reported yes, sporadically throughout the day.
Mine is still preparing, no email.
Getting to the point that I'd rather they just cancel it so I can go buy a regular one instead.

Of all the dumb choices Nintendo has made over the past few years regarding Club Nintendo, I'll excuse them slightly if the new program they roll out removes the survey aspect of registering a game and just lets us earn points without being marketing slaves.
Pretty sure that's the entire reason the program existed in the first place.

You're a bad person and why we can't have nice things.
Whenever I go to Gamestop, I take the slip out and bring it home. That way other people don't waste their time taking codes I've used.
Will they still give coins for eShop purchases of games released before 1/20? Still need another 25 to get to Plat.
...Or can I pick up a couple of the CN titles and have post play surveys that add up to 25?
In the official statement they say that eShop games will still give coins until April 20th.
Whoops, that was the CN UK statement. I don't see any mention in the CN US statement.
