    Hey, a cheap way to get a 3DS with a game. Heck, two games cost that much. I like my little doorstop (MK7 ftw) and it's great if you're somehow stupid enough to break a 3DS XL hinge (me). I think even though NSMB2 is okay, they should bundle mario maker or at least a newer game.

    It would be nice for $50, I remember when they were discounting the Gameboy Micros for $50...can you believe it!? Yes I bought a few of those when they were fading away.

    Sounds to me like this is leftover stock that they're trying to get rid of. It's an old bundle, all that's changed are the region settings.

    I would buy this for my 4 year old (he already loves mario) but it doesnt seem to be available in China or HK sadly.

    Wasn't this already released? I mean why Nintendo wants to re-release an old model with an old game already pre-installed in the old bundle that adds probably no changes? They could at least maybe release it with the New Nintendo 2DS XL?

    It's great to see such cheap bundles. A full Nintendo handheld system WITH a game for not even a 100 bucks. If I didn't have already 3 3DS systems I would have bought it straight away!

    Better sell a small number of consoles for maybe $30 net profit, or not sell them for $0 profit?

    Would be nice to see the import.log from one of those (with all the manufacturing and OS installation dates)!

    They did it with the same colour too.

    It's just a repackage with the region settings modified.

    There is absolutely no reason to buy this, unless you're an unknowing cash-strapped parent looking for a cheap game system for the kids.

    This has been in the UK for a while now, I guess they haven't used up stock.

    Honestly, the only people who will buy it are people who want a really cheap console that they can hack
