I'm torn between buying a new 2DS from walmart's $99 sale now or work on finding a good used 3DS or 3DS XL on Craig's list (or possibly Amazon) for my step son for Christmas.
I think I can get a used 3DS for about $75 on craigs list (just looking around at previous posts). XLs seem to vary a bit more (but folks are asking around $125).
For those who own any of the 3DS models: how is the ware and tear going on them? That is why I'm probably only going to shop Craig's list is so I can inspect it before paying for it.
I'm really not sure which he would prefer and I want this to be a surprise. He has been wanting to play the New Super Mario Bros 2 game and has hinted on about it all year.
I brought up the 2DS with him when it first came out and he didn't like the way it looked.
Can't really find a good deal for NSMB2. Its either $20 used or $30 new.
Walmart had a bundle with a Paper Mario game and an accessory for $120 but it seems to be sold out. Not sure if Paper Mario is really that great of a game or not. I think my step son is mostly just interested in playing NSMB2 and Pokemon. He commented that he didn't really like the 3d when the 3ds first came out, but for some reason I still see him wanting that feature... I just can't afford a 3ds or the 3dsxl unless they are discounted to something preferably less than $100.
Thanks for your input!
