Hello, I just wanted to say that I'm sorry I'm posting a thread. I tried posting this in the "3DS NOOB PARADISE" thread and keep getting ignored, and every search fails. My question is very simple, "Is my Black 3ds Compatible?" I purchased this new at a local store. They told me there are no returns for opened electronics, so I'm not opening it until I have any confirmation. The date is 2012 and serial CW420XXXXXX. Here is what I know: 1. The wiki is wording VERY confusing. It will explain about the regular 3DS in North America at the beginning and end. My 3DS fals in <= CW421XXXX, but I need confirmation that this is true. 2. A user received a compatible 3DS in around the same area, but midnight purple. 3. 3DS that say 2012 may be misleading. ---- So can someone give me a straightforward answer? I would definitely appreciate it 10 times over. Thanks for reading!
