"Nintendo just held their Nintendo Direct conferences for Japan, North America, and Europe. They announced a new 3DS model, the 3DS XL, and you may be wondering, "Coffee, I already own one of the original 3DS systems. What should I do?"
Well, if you perhaps really, really, REALLY want the new 3DS XL system, you have a few options.
Option 2: Sell your original 3DS model yourself, perhaps on sites like Ebay, Craigslist, or even Amazon.com. Just make sure the site and your method of selling it on your own is safe.
Option 3: Trade-in your old 3DS model, and use the trade-in credit to purchase the new 3DS XL model.
The key is how much can you currently get for the original 3DS model though, and how much trouble do you want to go through. Brew some coffee, and take a look at the current trade-in values for the original 3DS system!", writes CoffeeWithGames.
