    It was just $40! Why did the seller up the price, AGAIN?! WHY?!

    And I was just about to buy one from there. Know what? F this F-ing crappy game! This is just dumb!

    I think I'm done trying to hack my 3DS. This is just too much, especially on a game that DOESN'T DESERVE A F TON OF CASH IN THE FIRST PLACE!

    ...gosh, I'm salty...

    I got mine from a flea market vendor who had it for 8 dollars but said the game was boring and will sell it to me for 6 dollars.

    I'd try going to local stores to see if they carry it if you're able to. You'll almost certainly get a better deal. That, or else try eBay. You might find a seller that isn't aware of how valuable the game actually is.

    Cubic Ninja has become pretty much the "ebin hax" game of the 3DS library. Even though there are other options - especially for <9.2 users - it's still treated as a "must-have" game, and as such it's a pretty big target for scalpers and other scumbags trying to resell a game they got for 10 bucks.
    The value of the game actually decreased a couple months ago due to the insane amount of entrypoints we had - Ironhax, Tubehax, Smashhax, OoThax, Browserhax, Menuhax, but as Nintendo patched most of those options it looks like the game's value's on the rise again. It makes sense.
    Your best bet right now is OoTHax and a save dongle.

    I even told the manager at Eb Games they shouldnt have sold me the game because I can hack the 3DS and they were like .... meh lol They Didn't Care LOL


    (A little story but I bought this game ages ago and returned it on the same day because i hated it and it was shit LOL no surprises there but when Smealum annouced the HAX I bought a brand new copy of the game for the $8 and it was the same price back then too lol)

    If ONLY I had two copies :O

    Funny thing happened though, while I was getting information about using OoT3Dhax, someone bought the game before I did a few seconds ago. Boy, was I upset. lol

    That's a insane price for a game like cubic ninja! Better off just getting sky3ds blue button, at least then you have cubic ninja plus more.

    Seems about right, Ninjhax was an opportunity.

    I don't see anything particularly wrong with this, it happens to pretty much anything that's limited.

    Between insane and insecure
    Supply and demand, supply is low and demand is high, so people exploit the market to gain a profit. That's how the market works, son.

    I got mine for 30 euro and it was worth it. I've used it to install menuhax. So I'm not running ninjhax directly anymore, but I will never sell the game. To always have a backup-exploit is a very safe feeling.

    Yeah, but $70 for a used Cubic Ninja game sounds outrageous to me. It's worth $5, but given its value, it should not exceed $30, already that's 6 times as much as it should cost. It measures up to newer 3DS games, but doesn't go overboard.
