Nintendo Now Selling Refurbished 3DS XL

Nintendo has opened up a product page on its official website for a Refurbished Nintendo 3DS XL, available for $169.99 (for a limited time) in black and blue colors. Those are somewhat ironic color choices, considering the refurbished handhelds “may have minor cosmetic blemishes”, though Nintendo promises they are “guaranteed to be fully functional.” (You […]

Pikachu 3DS XL Confirmed for North America

I have always regretted picking up the boring aqua blue 3DS; had I waited a little longer, I could have scored a slick Zelda-themed black 3DS or one of the fiery red models.

The 3DS Has Now Out-Sold the Gamecube

Just a quick post; Nintendo tweeted this weekend that the Nintendo 3DS (likely including the 3DS XL) has officially out-sold the Gamecube, which originally launched in 2001, and more or less held the “third place” position in the last console generation. I don’t mean to discredit the Little Lunchbox That Could; there were some really […]

Nintendo “Encouraged” by 3DS Sales – Finally Selling Above Hardware Costs

I normally try to avoid making posts about sales numbers, but I figured that a quick blurb about this relatively optimistic issue wouldn’t hurt.

Looking Ahead @ August 2012 – NSMB2, 3DS XL Launch in North America

Editor’s Note: Just before the start of each month, I will “look ahead” at the upcoming games that are slated for release; then, taking into account the general level of anticipation and the “buzz” within the media, I will select a handful of titles (two to four) that could be worth checking out when launch […]
