At my local store, surprisingly they had a few 3DS XL system boxes left over that have "Mario Kart 7" bundled/pre-installed in them for free. (Which was a limited-time deal back in the Holiday/Christmas season.) Sense getting a $40 game for free seemed like a good deal to me, (and sense the other bundles are more expensive) I decided I'd probably regret it if I didn't take this opportunity, and sense I haven't bought any games, or anything in a loooooong time, I caved in, and got it.
My 3DS code is 5300-8851-5073. I have to say I'm quite enjoying it, and I'm glad I got the "bigger" version. The bigger screens seem better to me.
Can't wait to get some Virtual Console Gameboy games for it.
(Hence the journal skin.)
