I've used my launch day O3DS for what's been nearly 5 years now. I've noticed that it's been loading the home menu and many apps and games slower than it used to. Also, I would love to be able to play some New 3DS exclusives like Binding of Isaac. As well, it seems that now is the peak of best time to get a New 3DS for hacking and homebrew because the current firmware version is exploitable (and if I were to mess up on a downgrade and get softbricked, I would be able to update via recovery mode back to the current exploitable firmware version 10.3). I've found a seller on my local Kijiji that is selling a brand new unopened red New 3DS XL, which he doesn't want because he got it as a gift and doesn't have time for gaming, and he is selling it for $200 outright. Here in Canada, the dollar is shitty, so a New 3DS XL from a store costs us ~$260 CAD in Ontario ($230 + 13% tax iirc). I could save a lot of money if I go with the Kijiji route, but what if the system is defective? I probably wouldn't be able to return it to the seller, but could I send it in to Nintendo, even if I don't have proof of purchase? (if the seller had a gift receipt for the N3DSXL, he would probably return it to the store and get back $260 instead of selling it to me for $200). What do you guys think? I would love to import a regular New 3DS (because I don't want to buy the Animal Crossing or Pokemon N3DS bundles which are the only ways to get a regular US N3DS), but they are crazy expensive, like $240 CAD for an Australian import. Or do you guys know any good cheap places (cheap in Canadian dollars) to import a regular N3DS? Finally, is the N3DS/XL worth it for me to upgrade? Are the loading speeds and gaming experiences that much better? Are the exclusives good? Would it be a wise investment? Help me out guys, please!
