In a move that can only be described as "batsh*t insane," some clown on eBay is selling brand new 3DS units for $149.99. That's a twenty spot less than the current retail price, which as you all remember just dropped a little over two weeks back, plus he's offering free shipping! The listing states that both Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black colors are available, and though supply is limited, it hasn't run out since I last checked this morning.
I have no idea how this guy is making any money off this ludicrous scheme. He's practically giving them away! Either a Nintendo supply truck was "rerouted," or he's buying directly from Nintendo and cutting out the middleman. Either way, given his extremely high feedback score, I'm positive he's on the level. If you were holding off on buying a 3DS because it was still too pricey for you, maybe this deal will entice you.
