    So I was down at my local EB Games store today and they were doing a trade in deal where you trade in your DSI XL and 2 games and you get the 3DS for $98. What do you think? Should I do it???? GAME is also doing this exact same deal but you get the 3DS for $99 instead.... It seems like a pretty sweet deal but I don't know if it would work out better another way? Thoughts Please. =)
     
  2. AUD or USD?

    I think I will. I might splash out and pay the extra dollar to GAME just because EB Games gets all the snot nosed brats who con their mothers into buying them one there. Maybe I can entice them to throw something else in to get my business. [​IMG]

    LOL@"AUD or USD?".. . Now go check currency exchange, your question is irrelevant.
     
  7. That isn't really justified but anyway the deal is pretty good.
     
  8. There is an extremely minor difference. Just wanted to be 100% sure.

    USD to INR
    AUD to INR

    IND currency always gets weaker exchange rates to all major currencies, as it is an unsecured currency for foreign exchange.

    Compare it the logical way, between the 2 currencies you asked.

    1.00 USD = 0.999993 AUD .. 0.000007 difference.. I didn't realize we were counting the differences up to 6th decimal place.. It's not worth measuring any difference beyond 4 decimal place at most on a consumer level.

    Not really.
    An American 3DS = 249
    An Australian 3DS = 349

    Anyone with eyes could have figured out he was talking about the Australian 3DS. Take a look at his flag.

    Buy it at GAME so you can get some of that store credit that they do.

    That's a simplistic view.

    I'll take it a step further then.
    The United States doesn't have any GAME stores, and I'm pretty sure all of the US EB Games have been converted to GameStops.

    Not at all what I meant, but then again I don't know why I'm defending someone else.

    Actually noticed that GameStop is offering trade in deals for the 3DS. Now just gotta find a place to get a second hand console cheap. DSL = 80e, DSi = 110e, DSiXL = 140e. source: Finnish GameStop. Not that bad a deal since the 3DS costs around 250e (probably) in Finland. :3

    Floydo, from NSW, Australia, talking about being down at his LOCAL EB GAMES store, with a sig that mentions kangaroos and Australian internet. How more obvious does it need to be that he is in Australia.. .. Does he need to include his google street view co ordinates, Or "I AM IN AUSTRALIA" on his sig, or both ?.. FFS, that really takes the biscuit.. shit.
