New Europe XL Bundles

#1pkmastah15Posted 2/15/2013 10:19:43 PM(edited)
So Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter are two new bundles that are coming out in Europe. I want the Black XL system. Anyone know where we can get this if we live in the US?

I found some UK sites, but they don't ship outside UK. Strange as most Japanese import sites lets you import the system too, but most UK sites refuse to ship outside UK if it's related to consoles. Games are no problem, but consoles are another story apparently.

And for those who want to tell me that it's region locked. Yes I already know. I don't care.

As an American, there is absolutely no good reason for you to want a UK system. The games are FAR more expensive in the UK and the region lock will make sure you have to import all of your games from the UK. You could buy the black system and swap the guts with a US system, but still, it's a lot of money to pay for a colour change.

If you're still willing to buy a UK system, I believe game.co.uk will ship worldwide: http://www.game.co.uk/en/nintendo-3ds-xl-black-with-monster-hunter-3-ultimate-202381?attributeName1=Shop%20By&pageSize=20&provenance=New&categoryIdentifier=10206&attributeValue1=63

True. But I already have a Japanese regular 3DS and an American 3DSXL. I'm not worried about region compatibility. I just want a smexy system since all my 3DS look like **** (I got aqua blue 3DS and the red/black 3DSXL). I sometimes wonder, is it really that hard to bring in some new color choices here in America??

I thought about ordering from there. I got really excited to see that they had preorder, but I checked here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/info/StaticPageDisplay?langId=44&storeId=10151&categoryId=54776&brdcrmb_trail=Help&catalogId=10201

Check where it says "Please Note" section. It says "We are unable to ship orders outside of the UK over 1000g. This includes all hardware orders." Maybe I should email them if they could at least ship out 3DSes or something. I doubt it though since if there is one thing these UK stores seem to have in common is, they use a crap international shipping couriers which is why they can't ship too heavy items. You would think they would at least allow some express mail or something, but nope.

seriously all for a black dye? Just get a can of spray paint and tape.

Then I guess your only choice is eBay...
