    -snip-

    Check out the price. He's got a pretty good thing going. Since 3DS hacking has gotten more user-friendly recently we'll probably see more of this. (I thought at first the price was justified because it had hardware video out but it doesn't)

    edit: btw any guesses how far it'll go?

    "playable both online and offline as a retail cart would be!"

    Until you get banned for using a public header. What a scumbag.

    I wonder if people realize that the games are pirated, since he hasn't specifically mentioned it.

    Oh, good point. Still, he advertises that it streams to a pc wirelessly with some homebrew, which, unless he is years ahead of the rest of the community, is a lie.

    Perhaps they also think it has the Loopy/katsukity mod as well.

    This guy also sells on craigslist too:-snip-. I only stumbled upon this because I live in a neighboring town.

    Region Free and stream capture.
    That pretty much says it.

    Although, the guy isn't just selling the games, but the console itself.
    The price might be a little bit over the top, but he isn't selling simply the installed games but the console as a whole with the games installed.

    wow. There's a lot of money to be made from this sort of thing.
    But ... what if they're actually bought from the eshop :ninja:
    on second thought...

    The fact that he's done the work of installing homebrew/CFW and games onto it already is worth some extra money. That is a lot of money though. $150 extra just for the convenience of not having to follow a tutorial and do the work yourself. One person bumped up the price from $100 to $300, maybe they don't realize the games are pirated, or maybe they're really willing to pay that much. Whoever it is probably doesn't realize that anyone can install homebrew/CFW and get all of that for free with just a tutorial and a couple hours free time.

    Fucking idiots always will sell pirated games cause other stupid fools can't fucking pirate for themselves.

    People like that don't deserve to pirate nor deserve to have games.

    So this ended with the winning bid of $395. dayum.

    Since we can't link to it, the auction's title was:
    New Nintendo 3ds XL + 32 Games/DLC/Region Free/Video Stream Capture

    I've been thinking of doing that locally - actually have a couple of o3DSes awaiting their new owners, but I refuse to jack up the price like that. (Sure, it takes time do downgrade and install A9LH properly, but my time isn't worth that much!)

    A hacked console is a tad more valuable but not a lot in the case of 3DSses (seeing every 3DS can be downgraded as of time of writing)
