    Bought it off a guy this afternoon from Craigs List. I am not sure how much a DSi XL normally goes for but I would assume its still up there in price.

    I wss looking up Craigs List for a good deal and came across it, the guy I met said he needed to sell it quick to have extra money for his bbq this weekend.

    It was sealed in the box had all wrappings and papers thats normally applied to it. Sticker on the box was untouched and it was able to register on club nintendo too.

    I will post pics in the morning, just got home from a kick ass bar that has tons of lots of retro 70s & 80s arcades for only a quarter each [​IMG]

    No. It was a horrible deal. The DSi XL normally goes for around the $160 range. You should complain to the guy for selling you an overpriced XL.

    reading that story i can only think the same thing, it was probably stolen. i'm not 100% sure i would have registered it but then again maybe it was just a great deal you got.

    the xl is my favorite of the ds handhelds. i use my xl more than anything else. enjoy it.

    No idiot would sell a brand new DSiXL for $35.

    Even if he did get it as a gift and didn't want it he wouldn't have sold it for $35, he would sell it for like, $100 or $150.

    Here are some pictures of it, I don't think it's stolen the guy seemed like he was an okay kinda person just that he said he needed to sell it quick over the weekend. I gave it to my brother since he could use a new one.

    Seriously, the DSLite costs more than twice that money.

    I'd say it was stolen too. But hey, good deal.

    DS Lite costs $99 since June 5 in the US. A DSi XL costs around $260 here. So yeah, thats SUPER cheap.
