    I'm heading to Hong Kong in a couple of months (May, actually). I'm going to pick up a few games for the 3DS to mainly resell on ebay to make a couple of dollars. Got any ideas of titles I should bring back?

    Anything you want me to pick up while I'm there?

    How much is a JPN 3DS there (preferably with MH3G)?

    I have no idea - my dad is leaving on this Sunday, and I'd get him to ask for you. I'd probably tack on a 10% charge + shipping, although.

    Thanks but - no need for the trouble :P

    I suppose HK should be cheaper as SG has notorious prices for games.

    Lol. I'd probably be hunting for a SNES flashcart for myself. (I'm wishing myself luck for that - I hate dealing with dealers...they see a girl and they think we know nothing...)

    Well, if you change your mind - I'm always open to do that.

    Have a great time in Hong Kong! Be sure to take lots of pictures, I'd love to see if you can! :)

    I think you should pick up Monster Hunter.

    From what I heard from my friends, some gameshops in HK sells JPN 3DS games at a rather reasonable price, much cheaper than importing online (Playasia, amiami & etc).

    I think HK is really an NTSC-J gaming country. ;)

    @OP: enjoy your holiday :P

    Lol. Thanks to all the well wishers! (I'm not starting my holiday yet - need to finish my final exams and final projects first!)

    Also, I will probably import Monster Hunter 3G; that looks like the most anticipated thing ever.

    You will definitely not regret buying Monster Hunter 3G! It is simply awesome! I have clocked over 100 hours & now I am just starting to clear G-Rank Quests! :D

    If you want to import it, you will have to buy a Japanese 3DS as well, since they are region locked.

    I know, I personally hate the Monster Hunter series (I played it on the PSP before), but I think I will import it just to sell off here. :)
