    Why not buy an American white one?

    You'll still have to import something. Nintendo never released Japan's pure white cover plate here.

    Yeah but it's a lot easier than dealing with region changing a 3ds.

    That bundle is already more expensive than importing and you then have to pay even more for the plates as mentioned.

    Amazon.ca has the white import for $232. A bit more than PlayAsia, but it's fulfilled by Amazon so you'll receive it much quicker.

    I can change the region without issue; I just want to make sure the unit I receive is exploitable.

    BTW the only 2 white n3ds small consoles in USA are the pokemon red/blue and happy home designer.

    I'm just saying there's a lot of down sides to region changing on new3ds, like no eshop. Can't use NA account for friends, some things just don't work.

    Everything is exploitable with Hardmod.

    I just imported this console from Play-Asia. Shipping was $15 to the states, and it came in 2 days. The system version was 9.1.0.

    I didn't realize they had such a quick shipping option, perhaps they have a warehouse in NA somewhere! I just checked and it's offered to Canadians too so that would be $15-$20 cheaper, although Amazon has amazing CS if something were to go wrong.
