    With the new banwaves you might be buying a banned 3DS or one that's flagged to ban in future. Always make sure to ask if it had hacks or not beforehand and make sure to pay with PayPal.

    Are refurbished units from Nintendo at risk?

    Total noob about nintendo console banning here. How does it work? Is it hardware specific?

    What's worrysome is that I've seen a few people talking about selling it already. I don't even know if that can be reported if we see such a behavior here.

    Shame for people that play 3DS online. Great for people like me, who couldn't give two shits about online. (cheaper ftw)

    It's still bad if they sell it as an used 3ds without mentioning the ban. It can be difficult to claim it wasn't you afterwards, unless Nintendo support can give you the date of the ban (which I doubt).

    Oh yes, if they don't mention it and sell it for a high price then they can rot in hell. Otherwise..:yay3ds:
