    Hi I'm just wondering what would I have to do to get my new 3ds xl monster hunter edition replaced by gamestop or nintendo? I bought a Warrenty through gamestop but if you think they won't replace my special edition then nintendo will have to do. I'm trying to get it replaced so I can not be a stupid person and update it like I did on this one so I can run gateway on it. Please help me.

    No where in your post does it say that your console is broken or malfunctioning. So no, it shouldn't get replaced. Maybe you should sell it and buy a new one with lower firmware if that's what your after.

    Buy standard one, switch cases, sell the extra one.

    Your first post makes it appear you don't want it unless it works with a gateway. It also appears that you want to get gamestop or nintendo to replace it. Just a guess on my part that you don't want it anymore.

    I do want it but i also want gateway im using my sisters old 3ds to do gateway but its not fun playing on 2 3ds's i just wanna use it on one and i want it on my monster hunter edition so i look cool and play cool lol. I just want my cake and eat it too. So i thought gamestop and nintendo could give me that option back.

    What's wrong with it, why do you want it replaced?

    I heard Nintendo might not give you another limited edition if they don't have them instock. ( they give you another refurbished instead of repairing most times )

    Nintendo isn't going to downgrade your console for you, neither is gamestop. If you send it to nintedno for repairs, they will probably just send you a refurbished console back to you, and it probably won't be a MH special edition. Your best bet is to do what hippy dave said, or sell it and find a different console on lower firmware.

    Yeah, unless you can some how exchange it at gamestop for another new one for the possibility of getting a low firmware. I doubt it can be done.

    I would just sell and buy a different console, you might even find a MH special edition new in the box somewhere on the net.
