My xl came in from Cowboom. Not one scuff or scratch, had a stylus, charger (not included with XL normally), the AR cards, Club Nintendo Membership, User Manual, and the original box! I am shocked!

It was supposed to have light scuffs and/or scratches with no accessories other than the actual console.

Again, I paid $125.

I would like to have this for that price, pretty much everywhere I checked it started at 140$ with no charger or stick and it had some scratch on it.

I checked Cowboom, right now they only have $135 XL's, a couple with a 5 rating (out of 8), which is minor scuffs or scratches, though no charger or stylus, which mine was advertised as and actually had. With shipping tax, it might be $142 or so. Also, Amazon has a couple for $140 plus $6 shipping. Which is very low by amazon standards! I would keep your eye on both of those sites. Also, keep an eye on the auctions at cowboom. I saw it there and just went to buy it now, for the $125, I was like really? The 20 people bidding are gonna run up the price to 125 overnight, I am gonna buy it now, since it was in great condition and the small chance that I could get it maybe 4 dollars cheaper was not worth the risk. I think the auctions allows for the owner to sell, and the store to get a commission, but they seem lower than the store pre-owned prices, which are still very good. So yeah, I'd check it out from time to time.

Let's see, have you tried Craigslist? I find that a good number of people are willing to sell cheaper that Ebay Users or Online Stores since Gamestop has a $60, yes a $60 trade-in value! And Amazon has a $105 trade-in value, but only for an Amazon Gift Card. The point being, people are willing to sell their XL's around $100/$120 if they are really strapped for cash, and they usually have the basic accessories. I am not sure where you are from, but if you live in or near the city, I'd look into it.

Well, I hope this helps. Everyone deserves a 3DS XL in order to witness greatness of the X and Y games. Even us cheapskates :p

Well I'm Canadian so I can be limited for something like Craigslist. And I could be even more limited just because of my province which is Quebec.

I got my 3DS XL, 3 weeks after the games where announced. X&Y was the main reason I wanted a 3DS, didn't matter if it was XL at that time or not. In early February, my grandma got me one as a gift. Originally I was going to save money every month and hopefully by October I would have enough for one.

I have a launch day 3DS which is really tattered but I'm not replacing it until the 3DSi or 3DS+ is out. It still does the job though, although the d-pad on it has a bit of it's paint chipped off.

I do not think there will be a 3DSi since the normal 3DS already has a camera which is why i was in DSi. Not to mention the XL came out after DSi and the 3DSXL is already out.

I have the money for a new 3DS, but I am saving for a XL. I have a DSiXL atm and I doubt I can go back to a smaller screen. And I rather not buy a used game system. I prefer to buy one new.

Well, at least it's not Nunavut province! Well, yeah, that's tougher. I would scout for anything that is in the 120 range online, in the described places, except for craiglist. I think I saw a 128 with few to no scratches, similar to mine on Cowboom, in the auction section. But you can always buy it now at the 128 unless you think you can nab it cheaper by bidding. Um...and if you're not opposed to a 3DS standard model, those go for in good condition 80-90 on the rare occasion, like Amazon. The shipping might not be an issue from the right buyer on Amazon, and Cowboom uses UPS, which seems like it would service areas of Canada.

Maybe EB games has some sort of deal. Online it states that a refurbished one is $170, which is way better than Gamestop's $190!! And your dollar is worth more than ours. You could save shipping costs and get a complete system and save $30 from retail price that way.

Well those are a couple options. Sorry if this doesn't help.

They are both the same, other than screen size. If you have a DSiXL and have been playing it a while, you might want to get a 3DSXL. The Screen is 90% bigger than the normal 3DS screen, which is smaller than a DSiXL screen I believe. I think the 3DSXL screen is bigger that DSiXL screen. Once I get use to a screen size, I can't stand playing on smaller sizes. That is my opinion though. If you are use to the small screen, I would go ahead and get just the normal 3DS.

Also the normal 3DS has more colors than XL at the moment in the US.

Black 3DS XL out in 2 days. I'm not sure the retailers such as Best Buy actually put it up on shelf, though.

Well, I haven't gotten one yet, but I was sure I wanted to as soon as X/Y were announced. I've already been left out of the majority of the fourth and fifth generation games because I never got a DS, which is why that's a mistake I won't make again. It seems like X/Y is gonna be a bit of a turning point for the franchise, so it's not something I want to miss out on, not to mention all the other Pokemon titles that have already been released for the 3DS, as well as all the Zelda games that are gonna be on it! /unrelated

But yeah, pretty sure I'm gonna get one before X/Y are released. Let's just hope I still have enough money for X/Y then ;D

Haha, I admittedly purchased my 3DS for Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, as well as Smash Bros in additional to X and Y. It's just finally the right time to have a 3ds!

My Gamestop where I live, they are already out. I think they came out the day I went there. Though I could be wrong, I may have read the sign wrong.

I tried to find one on Amazon.com and it always said it couldn't send to my Adress, Amazon.ca have almost no 3DS XL and they sell for 199$, it seems I will need to buy one at the store since no auction website want to send where I live ...

I have a question! I am really excited to play Pokemon X and Y and I see there will be a new evolution for Blaziken! Blaziken is my favorite Pokemon and I really want Mega-Blaziken. I heard that to evolve Blaziken you need Blazikenite and can only be obtained ocober 12th.
That seems okay but my mom turns 54 that day my birthday is october 26th! I don't even have 3DS so my mom suggested I get 3DS on my birthday with Pokemon Y! I accepted it and mom knows my love for pokemon is HUGE! Now I can't get Torchic or Mega Blaziken! WHY!????? So my big brother said I should get an action replay to cheat the Torchic since he has cheated Arceus event on his diamond. Will there be a code for this Torchic? I need HIIM! I know this should not be posted here but come on people! I am new! If someone here could contact me that they will happily create a cheat code for this Torchic I will accept it!

I tried desperately to buy a 3DS when it was released, but I wasn't able to. I did, however, get one last month. I had wanted one before X and Y were announced, but never got it until after.

I got my 3DS very early, probably one of the few to get it when it first came out.

I know there was some doubt for it originally, but now there are lot's of games for it, including X & Y, so I'm grateful for buying mine.

But now they have new colors like purple, which makes me jealous

Well, I got my 3DS for Christmas in the same year that it came out, which is before the games were announced. When X and Y came out, I was like, Yaaaaaaaaay!, so... yup.

Don't worry, the Torchic with the mega stone will be available till mid january, so even if you get the game later than Octobar 12th you can still get the Torchic.

I got mine last year in June. That was before Pokémon X & Y were announced. I don't remember how much I paid for it exactly, but I think it was $140. I'm glad I bought one of these, because now, I won't have to go through all the trouble of buying one when X & Y are actually released. xD

I haven't touched my 3DS in about six months, but that'll change as soon as I get my hands on Pokémon Y in October.

I finally cracked and got a 3DS XL last year on Black Friday. It was a good deal and it's a great upgrade over my old DS Lite. Lovin' the big screen.
