Topic: Trying to obtain a 2DS XL

Posts 1 to 5 of 5


My 2DS I got on launch day in 2013 is sadly on its last legs. The rubber cover on the circle pad won't stay on, the trigger buttons are becoming a hair less sensitive, and it can't hold a charge for more than an hour.

It's becoming more difficult to obtain a replacement so I was hoping someone might know of a place I can one either new, or refurbished from a trustworthy seller without having to pay an exorbitant premium. color doesn't matter, but region has to be from North America.

Have you checked Walmart? My local still carries them. There's also Gamestop where you can probably get a used one. Then there is also places online like eBay, and Amazon.

Unfortunately, one way the pandemic has affected gaming is spiraling DS models skyhigh. I got one early on but even then paid more than I would have a just couple of months earlier.

Good luck.

@Screen Expect to pay scalper prices for a new 3ds/2ds consoles. Since last christmas, options are very limited, and you may have to pay $50, $75+ more than the original retail price. My brother paid at least $300 for a new 2ds xl last christmas(the black/blue model), which should have retailed at $149.99.

I haven't seen a new 2ds/3ds console at a store in possibly two years - granted I'm 35 miles outside a major city, where demand may be higher than some rural areas.

2ds xl production stopped around 2018/2019, and all consoles used & new have been in VERY high demand since the pandemic. It's been surprising.

Thanks to everyone who sent advice, I found a seller on eBay who parted with theirs for $170 (plus tax)
