    I've come into contact with some Low Firmware 3DS systems, and XLs in the past couple days, and I've been wondering what the general consensus is on the value of them.

    I obviously only need one, and think it would be a good idea to see what the general going price is.

    Same price as any other used or new 3ds.

    If you're talking North American eBay prices, then a normal-sized low firmware 3DS in good condition is worth about USD120. Don't pay more than $130 unless you want a limited edition console or a brand new one.

    XL prices vary a lot more. But looking at recently sold used units they seem to be worth about $150 to $180, depending on what's included and the color of the housing.

    If it is one lower or = on 4.5 it's worth more because it's gateway compatible.

    If it's below 4.5 I'd say at least its doubled original price ($249.99x2 = at least $499.98) because you can use a Gateway and save that amount with many zeros.

    Now that I wrote what everyone wanted to read I can tell you that no, it's not worth more than an used 3DS. Maybe 50 more bucks at best?
