Okay so first of all I am wanting to get pokemon X and either the 3ds XL or 2ds.
Only problem is that I have sort of bad eye-sight. Not that bad.

It seems to me that the screen of the 2ds/3ds is way to small to play conformably.
I think I saw the screen is 3.53in. or something like that.
That's about the size of the old ipod touch/iphone.
3DSXL has better battery life and a 4.7in. screen?
That seems a little small for me.

On the other hand the 3ds xl cost $70-$80 less than the 2ds.
3DSXL+Pokemon X=$275(tax included)Amazon has it for $210.
2DS+Pokemon X=$188(tax included)

I save roughly $75 dollars total on this.
Can anyone find 3ds XL for less than $200?
Amazon has it for $210 which is little overpriced.

I wanted to get a 3ds XL and pokemon X for around $210-$240.
Can this price point be found?
It seems more logical since I will play in the house more often than outside.

You added it wrong unless you're outside of America. I got the SE X&Y XL for $210 after taxes the game itself is $39.99 ($42 with tax in Ohio at least.) It should cost about $252 total if you get the XL. 2DS is 130 so it would be around 182 in my area after taxes. Best deal I saw was at meijer but it ended on saturday. Buy the pokemon XL and get sticker star for free. I assume you could've sold it to someone or at GS for at least $30 if you didn't open it.

The only way I can see you pulling that price range off is to buy a used XL on ebay for 150-160. Shouldn't be too hard I just searched it found quite a few even some under $200 with games that you could trade in towards X.

Thanks.
I found a new 3ds on amazon for $197.
Pokemon X will cost me $44 with tax.I'm rounding out the numbers here.
It's 8.75% tax here in California.

I should be able to get a 3ds on ebay for $195 and pokemon X for $40-$44.
So It should cost me $240 for both.
Unless I find one used or for less new.
