New 2ds XL - $99

But, the color is only available in Orange & White.

Stock available in NSW at castle hill & hornsby at time of posting according to online checker. Might be worth phoning up individual stores since I’ve found the website is not always 100% accurate

    Ordered from Amazon yesterday, will come tomorrow…. No way I'd be running around hoping for Target to have one.

    Not sure a current hand held counts as Nostalgia 😊

    Now that really makes me feel nostalgic : 256MB FCRAM, 10MB VRAM ;-) .
    Those days when you where proud to upgrade form your 4MB to an 8MB Graphics (or back than 3D) card LOL

    Was thinking of getting one for on the plane etc. but the Battery live seems very "average" with 3.5 to 7 hours… I assume these don't quick charge?? Any idea how long it takes to fully charge?

    Here's an upvote for the good deal, but mainly for the nostalgia reference

    Thanks OP

    Was in Caroline Springs and tried the Target while i was there and they had 2 left so bought them

    Graphics are quite pixellated and look very dated given people consider this a 'current' gen hand-held console. Don't get me wrong games are still fun on it I like mine, but the guy who got roasted on the other Amazon post for calling it nostalgic was a bit hard done by lol

    Surely with the switch out, this is at least last gen. And with the dated graphics compared to say the ps vita, I'd say it's equivalent to something even older.

    It's certainly not classically nostalgic like a gameboy though haha. I still need to fix my GB screen! Have the ol' grey line through it. If anyone knows any proper retro gameboy OG repair shops in melb, pls PM me!

      Based on your logic in the second para - the switch has pretty poor graphics compared to the PS4 and Xbox… So we could call the Switch 'last generation'.

      Nintendo stepped out of the generation war when they launched the GameCube out of 'cycle' and have not been involved in that game since.

      •  

        If the switch is considered a hand held which I think it is, then it makes the DS range last gen. Which is probably also why these deals are coming out for half off RRP

        •  

          Switch is not a replacement for the 3DS at this time. Nintendo is still supporting both and their games don't overlap (don't come out for both platforms).

      Nintendo handhelds are always low spec'd. Even the Switch is a POS from a specs perspective. Software sells Nintendo consoles, not the hardware.

      This goes way back. Compare the GameBoy to the beast Lynx.

    Thanks OP, found one in Sarina, QLD.

    anyone got a good link to an easy way of hacking this beast?

      Only use this one: https://3ds.hacks.guide/

      Use the guide Toad linked, if you need any help ask me

      •  

        Question - my system has come with 11.4.0 - the guide suggests i need to either use a flashcart or soldering. This isnt ideal. Am i best to update my software so i can use the boot9strap method instead?

        •  

          The official guide may not have caught up, but you can use Frogminer. You'll have to do Steelminer first but there is a link in the Frogminer guide for that. It's much easier to use ntrboot but that requires a DS flashcart, and if you don't have one, it means paying money & waiting weeks for a delivery.

        •  

          The guide has been updated. Frogminer is listed under 11.9. Update to that and follow the instructions.

          •  

            @PainToad: Thanks mate, just upgraded and will follow the guid. I assume I ideally need to stick to the one microsd card - so use the one I want in the machine long term during the hack also. (The unit only comes with 4gb card by the looks). Not too sure how large to go…maybe 64

            •  

              @cjb: It’s easy to switch SD cards later on. You just copy the files from one to the other on a computer. :)

              •  

                @PainToad: Thanks mate. I ended up working it out - did the hack on the 4gb card that came with it, just have to dump it on the larger card now.

    Playability always beats hardware specs. Unfortunately you need a switch for some games, 2ds/3ds for many portable addictive little games, Xbox or ps for others, pc for others like fps. Can't win if you have kids need them all… :/

      I wouldn't say so. If you find the right one, the kids can play the same one for a year or two. That's why Minecraft got the craze before, and fortnite now.

      I grew up playing contra to the point where I can 3 lives the whole game. And I enjoyed the hell out of it, even when I do have the snes.
