I AM SHOOTING FIREBALLS NOW!

Posted by JackSukeru

I kinda like the look of it and the stylus is in the right place too, yet not coming with a power adaptor is kinda lame. Then again, I probably won't need more than one of those anyway.

Now the question is if I were to get another 3DS at some point should I get another US one, or should I split my games by getting a EU compatible one? I would also lose out on multiplayer games if I did that, what a conundrum!

No girls this time around?

They're in hibernation. They only get let out for full-on system launches. Rumor has it that they're trained at the same secret volcano base that births the infamous Nintendo Ninjas.

What? I've never heard of these allegedly "infamous" Nintendo Ninjas..

*Gasp*

They're good!

Well I hope I'm not the only one who rewinded back just to count how much cash money Jeff threw down.

That's what she said.

This video really is ALL about the Benjamins.

I love that Jeff has $2200 just lying in his wallet because of California Extreme.

I can't stop laughing throughout this entire video because 30% of it is just Brad looking at Jeff's crotch.

But the giant second thumbstick doohicky! It'll never fit on that! What about all the games that utilize it! .... oh right.

There will be one for the XL. 
Posted by Happenstance

I would have been tempted to get the XL but there is no way im paying for a handheld that doesnt come with a charger

I feel your pain Jeff. Every month I have to take out roughly 1200 cash to pay my rent since I don't have a Korean bank account. Worst of all, I have to go exchange it in and end up with twice as many bills bulging my wallet.

oh yeah! sold my DS last week so i could pick up the book again. what was i thinking!? XL all the way

Posted by MagikGimp

Hurrah for the 17th iteration of the DS! It's like they do these videos every week now.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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 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.

look at these bigshots boasting with their money

Posted by ThePhenomenal1

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

Posted by paulunga

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).

Posted by yogetoutdaway

Fuckin Roger Sterling over here...

Posted by Peacemaker

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

Posted by Mexican_Brownie

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

Posted by Arkasai

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.

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

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.

I'd like to argue that this is the best ds case ever made

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

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

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!

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

Posted by GunslingerPanda

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