Nintendo’s online store has been updated to include refurbished 3DS and DSi XL hardware. The products come with a one-year warranty and “are guaranteed to be fully functional, but may have minor cosmetic blemishes.” A refurbed 3DS costs $129.99, while DSi XL units are available for $99.99. On Amazon.com, a new 3DS can be had for as low as $165, while a new DSi XL runs for $143. Refurbished hardware bundles packaged with a game are also available.
What do you guys and gals think of Nintendo’s refurb deals? Are they a good value? Or would you rather buy a new system? Any of you planning to pick up a refurbished 3DS or DSi XL?
