He got lucky that she still loved him after he bought the wrong color, anyway. Blue is a monstrosity, all of the blue 3DS systems should be dumped into a volcano to make room for the far superior black and red models.

I bought my 3ds used for $250 ($100 cheaper than retail price at the time) from one of those idiots who bought it and played it once. Not a scratch or anything.

Um, where do you live? Here in the USA $250 was the retail price at launch.

He lives in Australia I presume. The 3DS's were $350 at launch there.

To answer your question. No. On both accounts.

Back in july i was looking to buy a 3DS for a decent price (at the time i thought "yeah right... like that will happen for at least 3-4 years...). that month i noticed a friend of mine had a 3DS, some 3DS games, and some 3DS accessories he was trying to get rid of to get money for another system. i said i'll buy it off you and he agreed. he told me everything he'd include, set the price, and i said deal.

Like new Aqua Blue 3DS (complete in box with everything included at launch and unused club nintendo codes), OOT 3D (complete in box with unused club nintendo code), Pilot Wings 3D (complete in box with unused club nintendo code), and a bunch of brand new Dreamgear 3DS accessories (system hard pouch case, 2 extra telescoping styluses, car charger, cleaning cloth, etc). he originally set the price at $250 but said for you $240 instead lol.

At the time it was a pretty good deal. the 3DS even had the Excite Bike: 3D Classic's download that was free until 7/7 i think. combine that with me getting the 20 free game Ambassador status, Four Swords Anniversary Edition, and these new cool downloadable 3D trailers for upcoming games i would say i still scored, even with me missing the $80 the price drop.
