Offer 1: Reasonable. After the price drop it becomes a bad deal though, because you would be able to get a completely new 3DS and SSF4 for less.

Offer 2: Great deal

Offer 3: Bad deal. If we compare to offer 2, you're paying 70 dollars for Pokemon White over Pokemon Diamond. Not only do I personally prefer Diamond, but if you get a new copy of White along with offer 2, it will still cost you a good bit less than offer 3.

Okay here are some more offers. Also please take note. These are real ads that are currently listed and no I will not link to them. Also I've changed some ads, for example some people list their system as "New" but in the description say it "has no scratches" or they "barley used it" which means it's been used. So I list it as used instead of new.

Offer 4

Price: $140
Condition: Used (No Charger)
Nintendo 3DS

Offer 5

Price: $180
Condition: Used
Nintendo 3DS

Offer 6

Price: $300
Condition: Used
Nintendo 3DS
Resident Evil Mercenaries

Offer 7

Price: $200
Condition: New
Nintendo 3DS

Offer 8

Offer 10 is actually decent. Taking into consideration that the listing is "new", and as such, logic would follow that the games are new as well. So, let's look at the deal again:

Offer 10
Price: $275
Condition: New
Nintendo 3DS
Ridge Racer 3D
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars
Street Fighter 4

That's a brand new 3DS (MSRP as of right now: $250 USD) with three games (typical MSRP for new 3DS games: $40 USD). If this offer were being made at launch, then it would be a steal of a deal. However, I can find these games brand new for about 30-35 dollars each. Even still, after the adjusted price of, say $30 a game, you're still buying the deal currently prior to the actual price drop date for cheaper than you'd buy the deal separately at a retailer new ($340 New everything and $30 a game)

Now, if this deal were being made after the price drop on Friday, then this price needs to drop accordingly, otherwise you'd be better off going to a store and buying that deal new ($260 for new everything, $30 a game.) So, if it sells before Friday, great deal; if not, then it kind of sucks.
