    Hiya

    A lot has happened recently and it's all just too much for me to comprehend.

    I have 2 4.5 3DSs. I only need 1. Is there any demand for 4.5 3DSs? Would I be able to sell it?

    (I'm in the UK btw)

    Thanks!

    Of course you'd be able to sell it, but you probably won't get much more for it than any other used XL, since Gateway's downgrader came out almost any 3DS/XL can be downgraded to 4.5.

    yeah pretty much going 3ds rate for a 4.x 3ds now.....although if your lucky you might still sell it more quickly to someone who isnt following the latest news for a little bit more than going rates.....byt yeah, no real demand for 4.x no more

    I sell my spare 4.5 console when i entered about the 9.2 gateway support, now with the money i plan buy a new 3ds with a gateway or sky3ds, if all same functions of gw are available on n3ds i sell my old xl, if not, i keep my 2 consoles.

    Well GameStop is offering a $100 trade for a 3DS XL AND $75 for standard her in US. I wouldn't expect any more than that.

    better to sell stuff to people, not shops....shops want to make money so they wouldn't give you the going rate for them or they make no profit.....i would say just as around friend, family colleagues etc or stick it on ebay or gumtree

    In general that is very true. However, $100 for a used 3DS XL seems real high to me considering they are $150 here on sale. Back in September when I bought my iPhone 6 ATT gave me $200 credit for my 4 year old iPhone 4 my son had for the past 2 years. That was WAY above market value. I don't understand it but sometimes these companies can give you more money in credit than the thing is worth.

    I'd actually be interested in buying one of them, if I could get a gateway 3DS included as well. Do you think that would be possible?

    Check his country. Do you really want an out of region console? It gets complicated even with "region free"

    Good point, i didn't catch that. But i am still in need of a gateway 3ds card, so if i could get just the card, that would be awesome

    Does it? Because I bought a US XL for cheap and I'm in the UK; I was under the impression that it wouldn't be an issue with having a Gateway.

    Eshop and local play are issues.
