    It's still selling, but there's still plenty of stock everywhere too. They really don't need to make any more for now.

    While I am by no means a Metroid fan I can admit this looks pretty damn cool.

    The glossy externals don't matter if top panel is a TN display... Which nowadays is even more likely to get...

    I couldn't get a Monster Hunter Generations N3DSXL with a top IPS (despite swapping a few times) so I got Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer and the 1st one was top IPS... Got a second one for my brother and bingo again.

    Just looks like a mustard and ketchup 3DS to me with some weird black splotch on the top half.

    I'd sell you mine for $80. It's in great condition and I no longer use it now that I have a Switch.

    I'm not trying to mock anyone but damn, you guys take the screens/display that seriously, I've seen the difference it's what the viewing angels on the side?
