That's weird, my Australian one came with a power adapter.

My god, that's an unnerving amount of cash.

Was tempted by this but I dunno, something about it looks tacky. Actually prefer the original 3DS design.

Man this thing is really tempting. Unfortunately if I want to get one of these, I will have to get another 32GB SD card because that is what is in my current 3DS right now. Not to sure if I am over 4GB (which comes with the 3DS XL), but I want to have all that space for other game downloads and such.

EDIT: Just checked my SD and I'm about at 4 GBs, so the new SD card would be about full already.

You can transfer it all over. I read all about it yesterday in preparation. Just do a search for "3DS system transfer SD card" on Google and you'll find what you need. No need to buy a new card.

I know I can transfer it all over, but I want to have 32GB SD card, not a 4 GB SD card. I want to transfer from a 32GB to a 32GB, not 32GB to 4GB. Plus I want to get another one anyways because the Wii U will most likely use SD cards again.

Why do you need to transfer it at all? When you do the system transfer utility, you simply move your old SD card into the new 3DS.

Continuing the fine tradition of DS unboxing videos. No finer coverage.

I have been considering getting a 3DS but I don't want one that damn big. I would love one that is the regular size with the XL design. I think I will just continue to wait for a redesign that has to be happening at some point, even if at E3 they said they weren't going to they blatantly did with the XL a few weeks later.

Holy shit, that was a ton of money.

I guess California Extreme is a good place to do your muggings.

Thank you GB for this video! I've been considering a 3DSXL and this helps out immensely!

No cradle, no extendable stylus, no charger outside of NA. Should they have named it the 3DS Budget isntead!?

Posted by Seshi

So, that means I'll have to wait for the white 3DSXL to arrive in NA :(

American money is too subtle; I have no clue what denomination those bills were. Different colours are handy.

They were $100 bills I think (they had Benjamin Franklin on them). Jeff taking a lot of cash to California Extreme.

I have to agree though: All the bills are the same size and the same colour. Pounds are different sizes and colours; You immediately can see if you're holding a £5, £10 or £20.

Also, they need to get rid of the $1 bill. That's just silly. Britain got rid of £1 notes in 1988!

I love coloured money. Australian cash is amazing. The red $20 note is a marvelous invention.

hmm the xl came out yesterday in EU (or atleast where i live) and yep there is no charger included kinda sux and i could not find any cradles either

You want to try Amazon UK for the cradle/charger bundle. That's where I saw it.

Imagine waiting in a rundown KFC with that much cash to buy a camera from someone on craigslist. I don't usually have any cash on me, and use my debit card for virtually everything. So yeah, it definitely feels weird sitting on over two grand in your wallet waiting on someone you hope isn't a methhead.

Posted by Mexican_Brownie

Looks like Jeff finally cashed in all of them Planets :P

Posted by Peacemaker

I feel like I should try and sell off my original 3ds for this.

Fuckin Roger Sterling over here...

Goddamn, that zoom out at the end. The screen looks HUGE from further away. I think I'll get this just for playing with my girlfriend (on a single 3DS).

holy shit jeff has been slingin' mad volume and fat stackin' benjis you-know-what-i'm-sayin'

Posted by NAQ

look at these bigshots boasting with their money

Posted by Ronald

It's not that much larger until you open it and see the screen sizes. The 3DS had a lot of space around the screen that is now covered in the 3DS XL. Just release Picross 3D 3D and you have one sale, Nintendo.

Posted by MideonNViscera

Anybody know if we're gonna get the option of buying just the XL Charging Cradle? All I can find online is a bundle with the adapter for Europe. I tried reading through this thread but everybody's too enthralled by $2200.

Posted by Addfwyn

@Will_M: I have to do the same thing in Japan, i have an account but my bank doesn't do transfers that way (Japanese banks are TERRIBLE) so I have to do it all in cash.

Posted by BiG_Weasel

For those of you interested, Jeff just produced $2200 to buyback that ill-gotten box. Brad, you definitely should've made it rain!

The thing about using a CRT is that it displays a given resolution natively, by changing the electron beam, LCD's don't do that, so if you want one for an arcade machine you need a 320x240 (and with good color reproduction) to play the vast majority of games without horrible scaling, and a 320x240 26" LCD is probably hard to find.

Also, 3DS XL looks dope, glad I waited for it. Now I only need a Vita with tv-out.

All of Nintendos handhelds are designed so that the next iteration is a decent step up. They could've created rounded edges on the original unit! Bastards. I'm buying one.
