The New 3DS XL is sold out at Best Buy, GameStop, and Target online, and it's not much better in stores.
Wish I could get one on Amazon. ...
You'll be waiting a bit. Amazon itself doesn't sell Nintendo hardware, so you're going to have to wait until the 3rd party sellers start getting tons of them in order to place them on Amazon. I would say within a month they should start popping up.
I just went into Best Buy after work on Friday. They had one left because the guy before me didn't want a red one.
Same thing happened to me at Gamestop! Someone pre ordered a black N3DS XL and didn't have the money to pick it up so I was able to grab it. I also got the collectors edition of Majoras Mask 3D from BestBuy! Can't wait to play it. I will have to say the 3D is crazy awesome now. I just picked up the Majoras Mask theme and it looks awesome. If anyone can find one of the N3DS they should definitely pick one up!
That is pretty awesome. Good for Nintendo, they keep knocking it out of the park with their handhelds. I may pick one up if they offer the Xenoblade bundle. That game is just that darn good.
Getting my Majora's Mask New 3DS either tomorrow or Wednesday ;)
The Monster Hunter one I have is sick. The chrome detail and art printing is so good.
You speak truth. I just got mine today (of course, I was impatient on launch night and scooped a black one at Walmart- stood by electronics for 2 hours to secure it). Such an amazing handheld just got that much more amazing.
This is what happens when you have more people buying them to resell then people actually buying them to use. I am down with buying to resell, I really am. But at what point is every item sold by nintendo being bought and sold at an inflated price... This is getting a bit out of hand lately..
Completely agree! Nintendo needs to pump these systems out along with toys to life Amiibo. The Nintendo fan base patience is being put to test every time they release a new product. I LOVE Nintendo but I will come fourth and say they need to kick it up a notch or two.
I am waiting for another game than Xenoblade to take advantage of it. At the moment, it's not worth upgrading since no games make use of it, unless you count the ability to use the tiny c stick for majora mask and others. As for Xenoblade, not gonna get it as I played it on Wii, can go play the Wii version again if I want and the 3DS version actually looks horrible. Needless to say, by the time I get one, availability won't be an issue and price will likely have gone down a little.
Except the 3d works amazingly now, which is kinda huge.
After Amiibo I don't know if they're really selling well or just proportionate to what was released. The big question is who's buying them, old 3DS owners or new adopters.
Probably more of the first. The latter will really be away when up-graders talk about how better it is, Nintendo announces some exclusive games, Holiday season hits and there is at least a new bundle and or sale going on to really take advantage of the shopping season. However I'm sure a lot of people held off buying a 3DS since the New 3DS got announced last year.
I just got the black one. Monster hunter 4 is awesome with it
I wonder how long it will be till reshipment, this would of been my first DS system ever.
Super Mario 3D Land Fire Emblem:Awakening The Legend of Zelda:A Link Between Wolds Shovel Knight Lungi's Mansion Dark Moon Absolute must buys must play experience I highly recommend fire emblem awakening. Best gaming experience I've had on the console.
Yeah I've been looking at the games, the games that look really good and creative were Luigi's mansion, and I like the Kirby game, but I'm a fan of the Pokemon franchise, so I have to get one of the new ones. And of course, I'll check out Monster hunter
Fire Emblem Awakening... Check. Zelda Link Between Worlds... Check. One final ingredient you're missing... MONSTER HUNTER 4 ULTIMATE. The last game you'll ever need.
It doesn't help that Nintendo is screwing over GameStop bigtime lately. They only ship systems that were pre-ordered. I picked up a red one last night at Walmart. It was the only one they had left. Not including a charger is a bit of a dick move though. So, I bought a 3rd party charger.
Dunno why demand is so high, didnt a ton of people complain about the new 3ds because it would have exclusive games for it with the better hardware? I guess it could just be nintendo not stocking much like with the launch editions, gamecube controller adapters, amiibos, etc. Anyways...got mine ordered for a good deal, just waiting for this baby, hopefully comes within a week
Amazon UK has the gold Majora's mask ones in stock now £225! Retail price. I stupidly sent my first one back as I thought it was faulty one screw on the back came out the second didn't, my replacement turned up and thought the same thing happened again turned out through watching a YouTube video that the screws weren't meant to come out at all just loosen and then you click the back plate out ;( so I sent one back that wasn't even faulty... Doh! Got an extra skull kid statue out of it tho, would have helped if the customer service agent had been told there was a new console being released as when I mentioned a screw driver he thought I'd gone mad, turns out he was talking me through how to use my old XL and even once we figured that out he still booked me in for repair. Got there in the end tho. Why they put the micro SD card under the back plate I'll never know.
Mine finally arrived from Bestbuy.com. they didn't even bother sending me a shipping confirmation. Ive been sitting here mad for 2 days thinking they still hadn't sent it. Luckily it came UPS and they deliver today even though its a holiday.
I was lucky of enough to find one at Target on day one.
Red or black? I like the red one.
Just got the Red. It's sexy as hell. Plus I like it because I had the Fire Red GBA SP, which was my favorite Game Boy model.
Yeah it totally does look like the fire red gba sp.
