    Will the recently released downgrade methods affect the value of 9.2 console on places like ebay? I remember a New 3ds XL 9.2 was going for 300 on buy out on ebay,or you would have to go store shopping within a 50 mile radius. I would like to assume that more quantity would equal less demand and therefore lower the overall price of the consoles. Would I be correct to make that assumption though? How much are 9.2 consoles going for now a days since the sysupdater downgrade became an option?

    Nothing stops a scalper. These scumbags are trying to fill their pockets and they will not lower the price because most people would not want to take the risk to downgrade. I could be wrong though you should check ebay and see how much theyre going for.

    prices range from $200-$350 depending on if its a limited edition system or not. the basic Majoras Mask 9.0-9.2 goes for $285-$315.

    You could be right,maybe I should start downgrading consoles and reselling lol. You really think most people are too risk averse to downgrade?

    Yeah I mean think about it imagine you have a 10.3 console you get the downgrader and run it then your console soft bricks youre screwed because now that console is useless and to make it work you have to update it now to 10.5. As long as there isnt a stable downgrader that wont softbrick you even if you do things correctly it is a risk most people wont want to take. So yeah you can make a quick buck if you want to because you are already providing them the 9.2 firm.
