    Is it more valuable because of the Super Mario edition or because of it's firmware?

    Probably 4.5 but my guess is all of them that are sm3dl are 4.5 or lower the console itself doesn't have any special indicator as to being "limited edition" itself or to any of which I can see its just a white console and I'm pretty sure that's common in Eur and jap I personally don't think it's worth the amount its posted for on eBay

    4.5 firmware doesn't increase the price but it may increase customers.

    I would take ebay prices with a pinch of salt -- it costs not a lot to keep the listing going/relist and you always have the chance that someone with more money than sense will come along and snap it up.


    As ever something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

    A largely inflated and unjustifiable value has been placed on these 2+ year old electronic devices... It's the PS3 scene all over again! "Hey, who wants to buy my 8 year old 3.55 ticking YLOD bomb for 600 dollars?"

    best advice, search 4.x 3ds xl on ebay, click sold listing....there is a rough guide(same applies to everything)

    it ofter varies by region, i know by me i could find a fair few 4.x consoles so i wouldn't be buying one for any more than retail price....maybe a tiny bit more to save me looking, but most of the ones on ebay are banking on the 4.x stock drying up before they will be shifting their consoles at such inflated prices

    I bought my 3DS XL at a not so popular gamestop for $270, yeah they're not so popular because of their high prices.. Whereas more popular gamestops sells 3DS's for $220-$250 but 3DSes there are more on latest models.. I found what specific model to look at the wiki...

    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/3DS_Ha...the_System_version_before_buying_a_new_3DS.3F

    I bought the 3DS XL in a heartbeat even though it's more expensive than others(and even if I would be broke for a week), it was installed with a lower than 4.x firmware and then I bought MH3U...

    So in total, a brand new 3DS XL + CPP + MH3U + LOTSA ACCESSORIES costed me for about $340...

    As already stated It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it, personally I'd wait until christmas, hope words gets around more about gateway (even use that term in your listing) and go the extortion route! That's the christmas way :)

    Not sure how much a new one would be worth, most likely more than the one I just bought for $154 including shipping.

    I got mine from a B&M brand new for $199. If you don't want to go firmware hunting in stores, then I'd say a $20 premium over the regular price is fair.

    I got a brand new, sealed Mario Kart 7 bundle (the one with the digital copy pre-installed) for about $225

    So whoever said $250 got ripped off :ha:

    I mean, if the goal is to sell it, you can ask as much as you want, I'm just being realistic here. I went with the lowest priced one I could find that was still unopened, since that's the only way I could guarantee it was on 4.x.

    $250 is the going rate for a new 4.5 3ds xl on ebay, i'm not sure anyone looking for a gateway compatible 3ds really cares if mario kart comes as part of a bunduru
