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!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :) Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

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

    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?

    • Ken Arromdee says:

      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.
