3ds XL on sale....buy now? Never a sale till Pokemon?

#1djkdjk801Posted 1/31/2013 6:40:45 AM
I'm debating if I should buy an XL here right now in Canada it is $40 dollars off .....I mostly will be playing it for Pokemon, I might give fire emblem a try but ? Prob not, I just don't think it interests me.....

I'm just worried there wont be another sale until after pokemon comes out since I think a lot of people will be buying the console just for that game.....

anyones thoughts?

If it's forty dollars cheaper, then yeah, buy it now.

There's more than just X and Y, you know... a lot more...
Shin Megami Tensei.
Luigi's Mansion.
Monster Hunter
Kid Icarus
The Legend of Zelda
Mario Kart
Super Mario 3D Land
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Kingdom Hearts

AND most importantly...
Fire Emblem.
You have to get Fire Emblem.
It's better than Pokemon! To me, at least....
Strategy RPG games aren't all *that* popular, though...

But, eh, yeah. There are a lot of games out there now... Enough to hold you over until October.

This.
The ONLY possible other reason to wait would be in case a special pokemon bundle comes out.
But I doubt one will, so yeah I'd jump on this deal.

I dunno... we've got a special edition console for every main release (not remake or add-ons) since the DS games started. There was one for Diamond and Pearl and a DSi for Black and White. I wouldn't be surprised if we did get a special console for X and Y. Might not be an XL though.

Yes, but those were way after each game's release.
None of them were at the launch of the game.

What? In the U.S. I got my Black DSi the day the game came out. I don't remember the Diamond and Pear Lite since I never got it.

There is an article confirming what I said. So yeah... I guess it was way after release >.>

The 3DS XL Pick a Shoe limited edition is coming in march to Chile, in South America, pre-orders already started, chances are North America will get it too.

The sole release of this LE 3DS XL gives me hope we will get the Black Charizard 3DS XL too.
