I'm currently unemployed but my brother proposed to buy a 3DS XL as well as pre-order Luigi's Mansion next month. The catch is that I will have to pay him as soon as I get a new job.
We thought it would be a good idea because of the current free game promotion. I'd pick Mario 3D Land because while I like Layton I didn't want Miracle Mask to be my only 2nd option. And I have no interest in Star Fox 3D. I've had the displeasure to experience the game a year ago and found it too expensive for what it's worth.
I saw there is no bundle eligible for this registration, is that correct? I know the only bundle released since february 14 was the Fire Emblem one. And that's for a regular 3DS.
I need some advice. Do you think this deal with my brother is worth it? And do you think there is a significant chance that until two weeks before April 30 there could be a new XL bundle so I can get another sweet deal on top of the free game one and end with 3 games?
By the way, I AM picking Mario 3D Land for the free game choice. I don't care if anyone thinks the game is crap or whatever.
After this deal I'll probably have to stick to Virtual Console and eshop-exclusive games like Crashmo and Rolling Western for at least a few months.
Edit: One more question. Those 6 dollars screen protectors work to protect the screen from them damn scratches? I destroyed my DSi unprotected screen after playing TWEWY and Layton too much and I want to avoid having another handheld with scratches this time.
