good price for a new XL system, at this closing store?

#1DumpsterMcNuggetsPosted 6/18/2013 12:13:40 PM
So I randomly went to this electronics store that was closing, and I was wondering if $160 is a good price for a new XL system? Have been wanting to upgrade from a DS Lite to a 3DS of some sort for a while, and would be opening to getting one of the XL systems(it wasn't a special bundle that comes w/a packed game, btw) they had.

For XL systems, they had at least the green and black one, the red one, and one more I'm forgetting. And if you guys have heard any talk or rumors about a future XL price drop by Nintendo, please do share that info on this thread. Thanks everyone.

They were on sale at Best Buy (again) for $175 last week, so $160 isn't too bad either.

There is no green and black XL.

Thanks for your reply, gldoor. Other opinions about this price, you guys?

And sorry MrF, I meant (according to a check on Amazon just now) the Aqua Blue and Black XL system.

Thats probably the best price you will be able to get a new one at until Nintendo does another price drop.

One last bump, before I go to bed. Is this a good price that I saw at this store($160), for a new XL? Sounds like it is, but I'd like a few more opinions. And if anyone knows if there have been quiet discussions or rumors within Nintendo, about a further XL price drop. And thank you very much to the few who did reply in this thread, so far.

If you are in the USA, those are both regular 3DS systems. Aqua blue and black were both the original, and there is no all black XL here in the states.
However, if the $160 is for the blue and black, or the red and black XL, then yes, that is a good price.

Yeah you're actually correct(and dumb me, I was thinking of the regular 3DS colors that store had in stock) that I confused the aqua blue one for an XL model, when it was an original 3DS. Thanks for catching my mistake.

I wish Nintendo had more colors available for the XL, since this is a minor factor that might sway me back towards the original 3DS, besides the lower price they had the original at($136). Also, though I prefer the XL model, the original one wouldn't kill me to play with, if by some odd chance the XL color I was most interested in getting there(think it was either blue/black or red/black) was sold out. However as this store is an out of the way location, I'm doubting it'll sell out anytime soon.

I wasn't trying to point out that you were dumb, I just wanted to make sure you didn't make a mistake and get a regular 3DS when you wanted the XL model. I have a launch Aqua 3DS, and bought my brother a Blue XL, and he doesn't like my small 3DS compared to his. I'm fine with mine, I have a cool skin on it, and will eventually probably buy an XL, either a blue one, or some limited edition I think looks cool sooner or later.
It sounds like a very good deal, and good luck with your acquisition, sir!

Heh, don't worry about it Tim. By no means did I think you were saying to me that I was stupid for stating that incorrect fact, and not catching it at first! And thanks again for your comment.

I just only wish Nintendo would do another price drop on both the 3DS and also the XL model. But it seems the more I look and compare prices at different retailers plus online sites, the more I'm convinced the $136(original) and $160(XL) prices I saw are actually better than what most places are trying to charge. And LMFAO at what GameStop is charging for used original 3DS' and used XLs, when I checked their site!
