    Damn it. Now I'll have to dump my Japanese bundle ASAP. :(

    Anyway, honestly don't see the point this. Maybe if they upgraded it to a XL I could see the value.

    If it's less than 200$, I might consider trading my DS Lite and PSP GO toward it (Since I never use them). But the fact its pre-installed and not a XL really killed the deal for me.

    Nice. I'd love to see an XL bundle for Europe. I'd buy the hell out of that.

    WHY ISN'T IT AN XL?!

    Gah. I like it, but I'll stick with my 3DS xl.

    No thanks. I could care less about a game series most people never heard of. I rather have an updated version of final fantasy tactics advanced.

    Ah, I don't want to sell my 3DS just to get this limited edition copy, though I really love Fire Emblem. If only it was an XL >_<

    Probably because they are trying to clear out stock on the original design. Odds are Nintendo will scale back the production of the original model and maybe introduce another revision in a year or two. The only reason they sold bundles of the XL model was so they could move units, even though buying a bundle costs the same as buying the console plus the game.

    As mentioned in almost every post above mine, would have preferred if this were on the XL. I prefer the matte finish to the original's gloss. Another gripe I have is the fact that the game is not the physical copy (like pretty much every other bundle out there now) :(

    But hey, at least they tried. Good effort Ninty.

    Damn. Not being a PoS XL actually makes this bundle pretty appealing, and I already own a damn 3DS.

    Decisions decisions...though my girlfriend would probably kill me and steal it if I did buy it.

    OH MY GOD...

    I am crazy I know:

    If this bundle comes to Europe(and we get a digital copy as well) then I will get both the game(for my 3DS XL) and this bundle <3

    Not a big of emblems or anything on my electronics. I'm a Plain Jane kinda guy when it comes to that. So this doesn't interest me much and I'm in the market for a XL anyway, not a baby-sized screen like the rest of you plebs.

    As for Fire Emblem, it's actually the last SRPG I played really (Shadow Dragon the DS). Well made games but I just can't stand to play SRPGs anymore unless they're really really different (like Valkyria Chronicles).

    Nintendo isn't gonna cut back on productions of the regular size of the 3DS just because there's an XL option. People enjoy the portability of the smaller version, the cheaper price, etc.
    DSI production wasn't ceased just because there was a DSI XL.
    Now a revision is POSSIBLE, but that's not going to stop production at all any time soon.

    As most other, XL = win for me, otherwise it's a no go for me.

    Glad they decided to bring this bundle to Canada and never purchased a 3DS during boxing day.

    Not a big fan of having the game pre-installed. I don't know, it's just me. Otherwise, awesome design!

    *looks at almost empty bank account* I hope this doesn't come to Europe, otherwise will have to think of a way to make money fast Q~Q ...so pretty *Q*
    ...or convince someone who has it borrow it <-< and then make them pry it off my cold, dead hands to get it back >-> *is not in obsessed fangirl mode, noooooope*

    You're a girl... I don't have to think very long for a way for you to make quick money... :creep:
    hehe... sorry, just had to...
    aaaanyway :D Pre-installed doesn't sound as tempting as the actual cartridge being bundled... and it would've looked better as copper/bronze brown/red.... like the cover for the DS game...
