Looking to buy a 3DS on the cheap late in its life? – If so, eBay’s auctions might be a good idea to check out if you want to spend $30-40 on one!

    Tsuyoshi sold more than1500 Japanese PSP last few months. He is a great guy. Personally got 6 Nintendo DS lite for 3$ each.

    This is great, this website should have more article about 3DS/DS, etc..

    The models’ offer is really confusing:

    2DS –
    3DS –
    3DS XL –
    New 3DS –
    New 3DS XL –

    they are technically the same ( apart form factor)? Or, which one is the best?
    They are, ehm, “homebrew friendly?
    Can run nintendo ds emulator on it?

      XL refers to the form factor and 2DS has no 3D on it. New versus not-New is actually a technical difference and you want the New one. Note: It is hard to find the non-XL form factor with a New system since only a few were released as part of bundles.

      All versions are homebrew (or piracy) friendly.

      You can run TwilightMenu to play DS ROMs. It isn’t strictly speaking an emulator.

        thanks a lot, so if i buy one used update to the last firmware i can still install a custom firmware or hack it in someway?
