Good time to buy 3DS XL?

#1Hashshashin_Posted 1/19/2013 3:10:42 PM
OK guys I need your honest opinion here. I had bought the original ambassador 3ds when it came out but then Nintendo f**ked me with a major price drop and then later introducing the xl. I just sold my 3ds today for 105 on eBay... don't know if it was a good deal or not but what's done is done.

Now the question is, i sold it to get the 3ds xl, but what i'm worried about right now is that i'll go buy the xl and then Nintendo will pull another d*ck move and introduce something else, making my purchase less fulfilling. So do you think there is anything on the horizon for 3ds and I should wait, or should I go ahead and buy one?

I doubt they are going to introduce a new model anytime soon, a new color maybe, but not a new model. So I say go for it.

lol I know how you feel. I got a DS right before the DS Lite was announced. At least it came with a special version of Nintendogs. lol

I'm waiting for the next 3DS revision or price drop myself. I think most people would agree one or the both are inevitable, likely late this year or early next year. Nintendo treats its handhelds like they treat the Pokémon games. lol

well id say you probably shouldv stuck with your 3ds until the next model comes. But whats done is done... so your best bet is to get an xl at a good price so you wont regret it. Its certain to drop lower than 200 over the coming months.

I doubt it will drop in price (outside of a sale) with a Pokemon game coming out, they can easily sell at the normal price with that.

Anyway I would maybe look for any sales, I kind of remember someone posting a $20 off at Bestbuy (I think) in like a week or so. As far as a new model I would assume the next model would most likely be a small one with a better design and what not, then a XL of that one the model after.
