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.

Pokémon Puzzle Challenge coming to 3DS next month

I love Pokémon Puzzle Challenge.  I am glad that it is coming to the 3DS Virtual Console. I think I will pay $5 for it despite still having a cartridge. I probably won't bother with the code for the Special Demo Version of Ruby and Sapphire it comes with, but that's fine. It is a lovely little game. I think I will go play it right now. more
