So I had my parents go to gamestop and trade in my DSi for a 3DS. 2 things got screwed up. They got me a black one (really wanted the blue one), and the DSi was only worth $45.. I'm pretty sure the DSi was worth $75 when traded in correct?

I've also just heard that Walmart might sell it for $170 on Tuesday. Now I'm confused. Would a different gamestop take my 3DS and pay me $250 or would they give me a giftcard (Still unopened and got a reciept)? I know they'll trade it in for a blue 3DS. All i want to do is just play zelda ASAP :/

you should return it and wait for the price drop if you want to save $80

Why

You get 20 games everyone and their grannies have played before

I'd save the cash, since I'd rather buy a 3DS for the 3DS, not GBA/NES emu
Second Chances sure are great. It's nice to be back, GameFAQs.

Walmart is going to drop the price before the deadline to become an Ambassador.

I really liked the black one better. The blue/teal one is really, really super-duper ultra-bright shiny.
Waiting for more info on: LoZ: Skyward Sword, 3DS games, Dragon Quest X, and Wii U

Here's what you do, if you haven't opened it yet and still have the receipt. Go to Gamestop tell them you want a cash refund, they will give you your money back except for the full value of the DSi. Whatever the DSi's trade in value is, Gamestop will take 20% off of that price if you want cash from that trade in.

Way to speak for everyone. Not everyone has played the games that are announced,so you should really try thinking before you speak.

You could buy it at Best Buy and get it priced-matched when it goes on sale.
