    Basically found one in a second hand electronics store, and purchased it thinking it could be used for something like playing emulators or rom games. But found out it at best can only play DS games, and not a single 3DS retail game.

    So what is the market value of these things? I assume I need to find the right people to sell it to.

    You either were extremely lucky, or you're simply lying your arse wide.
    Make some Photo's of it, nobody here trusts a Newcomer with such stories.

    I am not lying, GUess I was just lucky. Caught my eye due to the colour of it, seethrough black and metalic colour.

    If you want photos of it PM me your email.

    See ;D Thanks a lot! It IS a real one as you said. I guess you don't have any use of it though... >_<;;; I think it was more a waste of your money... D;

    But it is an awesome collectors item!

    Also a folder...? 0_o

    What did you pay for this?

    I never knew a dev unit could have folders! And well thats not a bad price for such an item! :D Too bad it does not run any 3DS games though >_<

    I guess you could try to sell it for €300,- on Ebay or so.

    Okay, it's the real thing, I see.
    To bad I'm broke, but I'll get mine next year from Nintendo, probably.

    I've got a normal 3DSXL and I can make folders on it. Maybe you need to update :P

    Technically it has no value, as it's the property of Nintendo and should have been returned to them rather than sold/given to whoever before winding up in your hands.

    Non-technically, cool find.

    That's what makes it most valuable. ;)

    Hum... The pic has the date of 03/03 though... How come you haven't changed the date?
    Also, given that it has the mii plaza it should also be able to access the eshop from which you could buy games. z.z

    I don't think it can access mii plaza, it only has a mii maker. Theres no shop application.
    I kept playing around on the dev menu settings and ended up resetting everything.
