    I live in India and nintendo isn't officially present here. So should I buy my 3DS from America or Europe?

    America.
    Reasons:
    Cheaper Games.
    Many Nintendo games are more likely to be released first in US than EU.
    Cheaper Console.
    Two days extra waiting would mean nothing since postage would take a while regardless.

    Definitely America. It's cheaper, and the region locked games will come more quickly, if at all.

    Import it from America, game release order usually is JP > US > EU.

    Plus 3DS in US is cheaper.

    Hi croagunk.master.I recommend buying it from US as well just for the reasons that Nollog stated.Even I am buying the console from there as well.But then for buying games I'll buy from the Indian gray market.They keep games of all the regions since they know that Nintendo doesnt launch its products in India.

    Buy it from Australia! NOT! US is better cuz the games are reasonably priced (not like Aus) and Sometimes their stores offer better deals than in Australia, especially when it comes to buying bundles.
