  3. Might get a 3DS XL next month - Advices?
3 years ago#1
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.

The best way to avoid scratches is to wipe your screen free of dust each time you play it. I don't like screen protectors.

Any XL should work.


100% sure? I couldn't find anywhere explaining wether or not I could register an old XL.

It's just the club nintendo code, and they have no way of distinguishing when you've bought it based on that.

edit: or it's the bar code, same thing though. They aren't going to disqualify all the XLs they have on the shelves, lol.

Wow that's great news.

So I can get TWO free games in the long-run if I buy the MK7 bundle?

Gotta hope there are bundles in a store that allows import next month then.

LMAO I bought my 3ds xl + MK7 bundle from Newegg on Feb 4 (during their $10 off sale, so I got it for $190) and I was way too lazy to bother registering for Club Nintendo.

Guess laziness pays off. Thanks for the heads up man. Time to get my free...hmm lets see, Mario 3d land?

Anyone?

I found another shop that is VERY good for brazilians but it doesn't has any bundle. So I really wanted to know if newegg allows this.
