@6ch6ris6 Yes. You can still use the system transfer to send your games over if you got a new 3ds.

Your first anything is important; a memory you don't want to forget. That's what makes nostalgia such a fascinating concept. That's why many people enjoy games that have aged well.

Can't believe I've only learned about this console recently. I guess it's not that surprising, since I was never a big follower of Nintendo or 3DS news, but dang. If I had known, I wouldn't have bought the two 3DS over the past year (I bought them second hand too) and just went for the New one.

Kinda annoying that it's using a different type of SD card than the old 3DS though. I had to buy a new microSD card, and it also means that I have to transfer my data from my 3DS SD card too. A bit of a hassle, but I guess it's no big issue.

I don't even think that I'd be using the new ZR/ZL buttons that often though. I don't think any of the SMT games I've played have incorporated those buttons into the gameplay (not so far anyway).

I've just been informed that the "Brand New" New 3DS (Fire Emblem: Fates Edition) I was going to buy from someone apparently has minor scratches on them, so he told me that he's reluctant to sell me the 3DS at our agreed price of $1,299 SGD (around 935.22 USD) anymore since he didn't want to lower the price. However, after a rather cordial conversation, he has agreed to think about accepting my offer of $1,200 SGD (around 863.95 USD). We are to come to an agreement this coming weekend (especially when I have already bought the microSD card and have already reserved a New 3DS protective casing from someone else).

The scratches include:

  • A 0.5cm micro scratch visible under bright light on the top plate.
  • A slightly longer scratch across the serial number on the back (bottom) plate.

He has said that he'll show me the photos later.

Honestly though, I'd probably pay him any price just to get that New 3DS, because I've searched high and low, on eBay and Amazon, and there weren't any FE: Fates Edition of the New 3DS in perfect condition anymore, so his copy "with only two minor scratches" comes the closest to being brand new. I told him to do the right thing and make it a fair trade since there are scratches available, and he said he'll consider it. But if he backs out, I'll probably cave and give him $1,299 anyway since a FE version of the New 3DS is perfect for the FE games I'm planning to buy in the distant future. These will be my first FE games too, so I'd rather have a FE N3DS to make that experience extra special.

Hope I get that N3DS with no problem... Sigh.

@Maxenmus Making sure you're aware 3ds & new 3ds family can only use micro sd cards up to 32GB.

I love the 3d effect & Mario Kart 7. I know a lot of people don't care fore it.

Yep. I bought a 32GB micro SD that was shipped from Amazon. Arrived a few days ago.

I like the 3D effect as well, even though I don't often use it because it can be tedious sometimes to adjust the 3DS so that 3D effect works right on my eye level.

@Maxenmus Sounds like you're talking about the regular 3ds, which had a more fussy 3d system. The New 3ds model (which you're looking for) has a much better 3d effect. It uses a face tracking system (a tiny IR camera?) to automatically adjust the 3d display, and optimize it for your viewpoint. So, there's a much larger sweet spot for viewing the 3d effect. It's a HUGE improvement. It's much more effortless compared to the the original 3ds. Probably how it should have worked when the 3ds initially launched.

@WoomyNNYes Nice! It's about time (though I guess it's been a long time since the N3DS came out years ago lol). Guess I'll be draining the battery more often with the 3D usage. lol

Honestly, the old 3DS' 3-D hurts my eyes sometimes when it doesn't work right. I'm glad they've improved the system. The 3DS' 3-D was a revolution of console gaming, so it's good they've perfected it.

Seems like the guy selling the N3DS didn't bother to respond to my messages for a few days now since last weekend. I'm thinking of just buying from someone else, even if it means I'll miss out on the cool Fire Emblem: Fates design. It's a shame, but I'd rather have a N3DS than none.

Amazon has a few cool designs for the N3DS, but none that really catches my eye. I see a Pikachu one and a Samus one, but I'm neither a big Pokémon or Metroid fan.

@Maxenmus
Is this the New 3DS XL Fire Emblem Fates edition you mean?
Untitled

Because I got this New 3DS XL PAL version 2 years ago from my country Indonesia.
I was so lucky to get rare edition of New 3DS XL despite I'm not even a fan of Fire Emblem.
I will post my actual photo of New 3DS XL Fire Emblem Fates edition once I arrived at home.

@Anti-Matter Yeah, that's the one.

I think eBay has someone selling an almost new one, so I might get that one if the guy hasn't responded. I don't really trust eBay, but I'm desperate.
