So title pretty much say it. I've been looking for a New 3DS XL specifically the Galaxy Edition.
But it's not in stock anywhere! I've checked local and online for all major stores and no luck. Walmart is selling some online for $287 which is a ridiculous price for a $199 console.

Is there any reason these are out of stock everywhere? It's been like 2 months. Is anyone else having this problem where they live too?

There is an artifical shortage going on with them to drive up demand much like Nintendo did with Amiibo's. Your best bet is to keep looking or going the used route

The galaxy edition was only limited quantity however. So good like finding that for normal price

Oh great...
Amazon had them for sale yesterday for like 5 minutes. By the time I updated my payment info, they were sold out.
Any idea when this "shortage" is supposed to end?

Considering that the galaxy n3ds system was limited edition. Probably no time soon. Id look into ebay or gamestop for used options

Can't you just order one from the Target or Walmart website? I just checked the target website and I can get it by Feb 7 or 9. Might be because of where I live??

Try to get one with IPS screens, not TN screens, if you can.


Your best bet would be the Black and Red n3DS XLs if you want IPS.

That's where I bought my Galaxy edition the other day.
Wat. Both the EB Games stores near me had none at all, I ended up getting my Black at Toys R Us.

So, my friend wanted a 3DS XL and boy was it hard to find one. Went to the local target and GameStop out of stock, drove like an hour away from where we live. Check the malls GameStop nope, check another target Nope, check another GameStop nope, check Best Buynope and finally we found a gamstop that had one Galaxy 3DS XL in stock. It took use about 4 hours just to find one. Why are they so hard to find? Oh and they don't come with a charger wtf lol?

The new 3ds systems do not come with a charger. Since nintendo wanted to keep the price a bit lower

The reason for the 3ds shortage is Nintendo switched many of there 3ds manufacturers over to Nintendo Switch, so only a small streem of 3ds systems are showing up in stores.
