    Honestly you can't ever fully trust someone online, id personally try to hit up local gamestops, cex, Walmart, etc before buying one online for cfw purposes

    He was 57% feedback rating so it's pretty iffy. I've never trusted Amazon sellers to be honest; does Amazon have any safeguards for the buyer?

    it says the order was cancelled multiple times due to "pricing error".

    Why buy online, pay extra for the a9lh and also pay postage costs, when you could look at your local online classifieds and shop around for a second-hand one at a good price?

    Go through eBay instead. I would trust the sellers there more than amazon if they aren't a company themselves. But if you want to get an N3DSXL, hit up your local GameStop or EB games depending where you live. They sell for retail and are below 11.3 as of rn

    I wouldn't buy from this seller. In the last year he has had 5 buyers provide feedback. 80% was negative. I agree, but a console that is not hacked from eBay or even letgo (I've seen some there). Just be sure they power up. Some are failed hardmods.

    In the Wii Homebrew scene, it's illegal to make others pay for hacks considering that they're strictly freeware. I wouldn't advise buying anything like that.

    Hell, getting arm9loaderhax and Luma set up is pretty easy. You wouldn't need to pay somebody for it unless you can't do it yourself.
