    hey there! i have a question to all my cumpas (companions) about getting a 3DS

    i live in San Luis, and i want to buy a 3DS, thing is, i can only get it buying it online on mercadolibre and such sites, what would you recommend me to do? what about the guarantee and things like that?

    i also wanted to ask (everyone) about maintenance, how should i do it?


    thanks in advance!

    Well, mercadolibre is a great site, I've bought a bunch of stuff myself there, but you have to be careful, if possible arrange a meeting with the seller, it's kind of safer. The 3DS is a great console! And well about mainenance... don't let it get wet (?), clean the screens and cameras with a soft rag...etc..

    Hey, Pablito can't you buy it in Paraguai? i mean...mercadolibre is okay but i think you could buy a brand new 3DS XL for a good price there.

    I live in Brazil and i bought mine using MercadoLivre.

    well never thought of buying one that far, but i will try, thanks!

    i thought of buying it from Hadriatica, seems legit to me (even though it will be a bit expensive, i don't really have other means, unless i tell my cousin to buy one and i will give him the money)

    thanks!

    I bought my DSes from eBay back then..

    but I don't know how good is the post service in Argentina, or what kind of shipping problems may happen to you.
    In here, when buying small things, sending as a gift, and if possible, setting the price below 100 dollars, generally does the trick for a satisfactory shipment

    Can't you guys buy from Amazon/eBay?

    I'm pretty sure they have sellers with International Shipping

    I live in Bahia Blanca and my 3DS got here without problems, go with MercadoLibre, if you but using creditcard, if you have and you pay protected shipment from Correo Argentino then you'll have nothing to worry man

    sure ..But if the package will ever arrive (or if the price + taxes are worth it) dependents on how the post service and the border's polices work in each country of arrival..

    maybe, in Argentina it's not worth it, but I can't say for sure..
