    I hope they don't do the DSiXL cuz it really flopped, and I never got one. and I hope they do the deal again or else I'm screwed.

    If current flashcarts aren't compatible with the 3DS at all I won't bother with that and keep my DSLite.

    But it wouldn't be unlike Gamestop to have a deal like that.

    Hm...I hope so. I think it was.

    DS Phat-$40
    DS Lite-$60

    For a trade it for a DSi.

    So I figure.

    DS Phat-$20
    DS Lite-$40
    DSi- $60

    For the 3DS.

    If I remember correctly they've had a trade in deal for every DS since the DS Lite, so this will probably also have one too.

    Uh, yes they do. I traded in a DS Phat, with a broken hinge in for full trade in value.

    Man and I just spent $80 refurbishing my DS lite! (replacing everything except the motherboard, so it's new to the naked eye). Why do I always find out about this kind of thing when it's too late >_>

    This is the guy who spent 100 dollars on DSiWare. Guess I'm not trading mine in anytime soon...

    I bet they'll offer around....70 dollars for a DSi that's in good condition. So maybe 50 for DS Lite and 30 for DS Phat.

    But I suck at betting.

    If so, I'll most likely trade in the red DS Phat I have. My little brother gave it to me since he got an Xbox 360, and he said that's all he needed. If it's above $20, I'll do it. Most of the DS games I play regularly I have on actual carts anyways.

    People are seriously overestimating the trade-in for the DS Phat, I tried to trade mine in for the DSi when it first came out, and they would only give me $15, so it will be even less than that probably.
