    this is going to be updated constantly for EVERY 3ds on ebay? sending a message to EVERY seller to see if it's 4.5 or below? ouch
    but nice idea :) - it would be better if you called the 'new' 3ds 'unopened' or something :)

    Well, I got my 3dsxl from ebay (95 Euro, case looked used but generally good deal). And according to my experience, all these 3ds(xl)s that are advertised with lowered FW, get 20% on their normal price. So If you wanna save a nickel, that's not a why to buy it. If then money is no problem, then be my guest. :)

    Can't stress enough to make sure before ANY funds are handed over to the seller, you get a picture of the homescreen sent to you to see if it has a miiverse icon. If it does, you are buying an unhackable 3DS, even if it is on 4.5

    Well, if someone really wants to buy a 3DS with a certain FW, he can surely contact the (ebay)-seller himself and ask... so... no need for you to do so :rolleyes:

    Appreciate your effort in keeping this updated.

    I'm looking for a XL EUR Gateway compatible console and I can`t find one here in my country.
    I already have two 3DS: XL USA (MK7 bundle) and a normal EUR but I'm looking for "upgrading" my normal to XL.

    Any good links on ebay you advise?

    Cheers!

    Please can you look out on UK ebay also? Shipping to UK from US ebay sellers is usually quite expensive.

    I have a blue/black SW10xxx Copyright 2012 3DS XL for sale, I don't want to go through eBay as the fees are high and I've never sold anything on there before. If anyone is interested, please PM me. It's brand new in box, one of the seals has been opened to confirm that the serial number on the back on the system matched the box. Never been turned on.

    I'm looking for $250 USD, or $270 CAD including shipping from Canada. I can post pictures if needed. PayPal or BTC is preferred.

    I understand that this is odd coming from a user with 0 prior posts, but I have lurked here for ages, starting back in the day with the DSONE from Supercard. I'd be happy to share any proof or verification later on tonight, as I am in class all day.

    well with no track record i wouldnt suggest anyone pays via bitcoin lol, people like to feel safe when dealing with people, someone might go for paypal....but just for anyone considering it....dont send it as a gift payment or anything, not when there is no track record for you to go off

    no offence to the poster, but better safe than sorry for the buyers im afraid

    I understand, maybe bitcoin was a bad suggestion. I only suggested it as there are comparatively small fees associated with sending it as opposed to PayPal. I have sold things using PayPal to create an invoice before, I'll just stick with that. I can provide video of me literally driving to the post office with the 3DS and handing it over to the postman, if necessary. I understand people's hesitance when dealing with online transactions like this.

    The fees may be high(10%), but the protection buyers and sellers get is definitely worth it.
    I suggest not using PayPal. The buyer could request a refund for any number of reasons months after their item arrives, leaving you with nothing.
