>I will never be able to have this because Nintendo thinks Americans are all stupid giants
Don't forget that America probably won't get the Xenoblade X WiiU bundle that Japan is getting
WHAT THE FUCK, IT'S NOT COMING TO THE US?
THE WHOLE REASON I HELD OUT ON GETTING A N3DS WAS BECAUSE I KNEW THEY WERE MAKING A MONADO THEMED BUNDLE, AND NOW WE WON'T FUCKING GET IT!?
Those are Monado themed faceplates. You put them on the regular sized New 3DS that is exclusive to Japan. the New 3DS XL doesn't have changeable faceplates.
I hate everything about NoA and mostly everything about Nintendo as a company. They make amazing games but they're so fucking awful at everything else. They treat customers like idiots, their ads are shit, their social media presence is PR bullshit, ther Online policies are ridiculous and they do everything they possibly can to stop people from playing their Japanese games.
Which is bullshit.
The real reason is that the west coast port strikes have choked out the supply lines to North America, so they had to cancel the non-XL model. They didn't want to have so much shit to try and push through the choke, most of which would just sit on the docks in crates instead of being sold (like what is happening to amiibo right now). The fact that the XL model alone is having stock issues is just another testament to the real issue.
They can't actually SAY that that's the reason, though, or else they'll give the strikers power and people will be mad at Nintendo.
Once the strike dissipates and things return to normal, we'll probably see the non-XL come through and the amiibo stock problems start thinning out. It's just too bad the huge delay is probably going to deprive us of a lot of these cover plates; they aren't going to release game-specific ones like this long after the game's come out and run its course. I hope I'm wrong about that, though.
All Americans I meet on the internet are either unintelligent, fat, or both until they prove otherwise. Do you have a picture to prove you are not one of the stupid giants you are complaining about?
And if you, by some miracle, are not actually a hamplanet with an IQ of thirty, you should get your affairs in order and move to literally any other country in the world.
Literally every other region got the regular size. NoA is so hopelessly out of touch with their market that they don't realize there's a demand for the regular size here, too.
theres a reason even nintendo thinks americucks are stupid as shit
nobody cares about faceplates, youre not even looking at them 90% of the time and its basically a shoutout to whoever is seeing you that you are a flaming fucking faggot with autism
>implying they aren't intentionally withholding the normal one
In a year or so they'll release the normal edition so that folks will buy another 3ds system just for the face plates.
Sup guys, Japanese import master race here.
Debating on whether to get the cute new Kirby plates or not.
>Already bought Kut-Ku, Kyary, and Peach plates
>mfw no normal size announced
At this point I wouldn't be surprised if japanese faceplates were somehow only usable by nip 3DS's. Like, they had to latch onto some hook or something that only japanese 3DS's would get.
Shipping from Japan is usually cheaper than shipping from Euroland, the yen was indeed rather weak when I ordered them, and most of all they weren't out in Euroland when I ordered them since Japan got the N3DS way before the rest of the world.
Except the XL red isn't the right shade of red. The Monado is almost pink, more of a crimson.
>Wanting a smaller screen
>Actually taking a handheld outside
>Actually caring about MUH PIXEL DENSITY when the console is fucking 240p
You don't play video games while looking at the back of your console you cumrag.
Not as bad as the WiiU.
Looking at all the different companies, the Playstation Brand probably nailed it best with their consoles. It's boring, but distinctive when you start putting numbers behind your product.
>I will never be able to have this because Nintendo made 12 of them
No fuck you. I just realized that could be a thing and that I fucking wanted it. Go fucking kill yourself.
>not caring about pixel density
>why not buy shitty furniture, it's not like we're going outside with it
>being a shitlord and not being able to see HUGE difference
We should all rub Vaseline on our current handhelds while we're at it cause it doesn't matter, small screen lol
>every store near me sold out of even the regular N3DS models in a day
>also sold out online
>Thinks Smash Bros. art is canon
Next you'll say that
I'M REALLY FEELING IT
Quit your bitching. If you really wanted one, you would have gotten one.
There were literally 5,000 copies of Drakengard 3 Collector's Edition made, and I managed to snag one. While I'm sure the demand for that handheld exceeded Drakengard 3, I'm equally certain that they made more than 5,000.
You just have to make a choice about what's more important to you, your time/energy, or that ugly ass handheld. You chose your time. Get over it.
Okay, it's a little brighter in Smash, but it's still a fairly bright lighter red.
That things look awful. The same as the MH4U one. If they had at least released an attractive LE 3DS XL I probably wouldbn't be so butthurt about the lack of a regular new 3ds.
I care about pixel density when the resolution isn't less than a standard digital video from a 2001 camcorder.
>Why bother complaining about what size your shitty furniture is from this store, it's all shit here.
Nice false equivalence buttbaby.
>Quit your bitching. If you really wanted one, you would have gotten one.
It was fucking gamestop exclusive and sold out within a few hours of the Nintendo Direct announcement that happened when most people were still asleep
Pre ordered from BB. Canceled.
Pre ordered from target. Canceled.
Go to 4 different GameStops the day it's announced to do a web in store transaction, get halfway thru it every time before the system shits it's self and is no longer available.
Yeah dude, totally my fault
It looks fine in Japan because "Monster Hunter 4G" fits nicely between the two camera lenses.
It looks like shit everywhere else because "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" is off-center. It's awfully distracting.
The Monster Hunter 3DS XL looks good but the MONSTER HUNTER 4 ULTIMATE printed on it kills it for me. Wish I could cover that shit up with a nice faceplate.
How long until XL faceplates are a thing? I can't imagine them waiting past e3 to announce them.
Sucks for you. Maybe next time you will stay up for your Nintendo Direct.
I have never understood why people are so fucking buttblasted about a paintjob. At least with Limited/Collector's Editions in games, they usually come with things that you couldn't get otherwise. But all you have lost out on is a fucking paintjob. It isn't a book, or a statue.
Big fucking whoop. Put on your big boy pants, and go out and grab a fucking color that IS available, instead of throwing a temper tantrum because "they don't have the Hershey Kisses with the GOLD wrappers."
Nah, it's that shitty looking "fur" thing or whatever they were going with it. Oddly enough, the OG 3DS has some of the best MonHun designs. I think all the XL ones looked cheap, including this New XL.
No it wasn't you fucking retard only the monster hunter 3dsxl was gamestop exclusive. If you wanted to get the MM 3dsXl so bad you would have stood in line for 10 hours to earn the privildge to buy it, like i did, you whining faggot.
I'm not that guy, but I was around for the Nintendo Direct and I was there waiting for the pre-orders. They were up for a mere 15 minutes and even then half of those got canceled. I know it's an epic maymay around here to insult people and tell them to git gud, but I hope you aren't actually this dumb.
I beg to differ. The whole release of the nn3dsxl was a disaster. Select stores got like 8 colored units and like 2 MM editions. Typical Nintendo shortage hype. It's almost like Nintendo didn't have faith in it's rehashed 3ds and just sent out a few to see if they would even sell.
I got one from bestbuy, I stayed up for 2 days waiting for the preorders to open, it sold out in exactly 10 minutes, no regrets.
I'm not telling people to get good. You want it? It's still available. Still wrapped, never opened. On ebay.
If that price isn't worth your money, then shut the fuck up.
Why the fuck is it that everybody thinks that their opinion means shit, when nobody is willing to take an actual stand?
>Nintendo didn't release enough special paintjob 3DS's. I guess I'll just get the red or black one and then bitch about it on /v/ for a week. That'll fucking show Nintendo!
Vote with your wallet, and stop bitching to people who have no interest in your "problem."
did you seriously wait in line for 10 hours to buy an ugly brass game boy
even if you didn't, what made you think that saying something like that would make people here think you're cool and have the upper hand in that argument
you sound like a literal child
>Xenoblade Chronicles is one of my favorite games
>America doesn't get the regular New 3DS
>Which means no faceplates
I seriously want to cry like a bitch right now
Yes i did. Why? Because i wanted the 3ds any one of you whining faggots could have done the same but clearly you're all of bunch a babies wanting to be spoon-fed like the entitled waste's of space you all are.
what makes you think that your opinion means shit
what causes you to assume that anybody cares about you getting mad at people online over an ugly brass game boy
it's obviously not worth the ebay prices. nothing is worth ebay prices. how can you seriously think this sounds like a good argument
are you 12? this is a serious question. I won't hold it against you, I just want to know because it'll clarify a lot
the stable 3D is worth the $100 upgrade. the added c stick is also neat and makes majoras mask a lot more enjoyable. also Xenoblade is one of my favorite games and I look forward to playing it a 5th time on the new 3DS.
>Why the fuck is it that everybody thinks that their opinion means shit
>proceeds to post his opinions
This is priceless. The fucking people who can't stop bitching and moaning over "MUH ZERUDA" try to act like a grown up for a second?
Seriously, nobody but you gives a shit about your butt hurt except for people who are also butthurt. People who weren't interested in it don't care, and the people who got it don't care.
Yet since the N3DS released, it has just been a constant bitchfest. If you were handling this like a normal, rational adult, you never would have seen a response to it, because you never would have posted shit about it.
not everybody has ten straight hours of their life to commit to buying a game boy
not everybody lives in climates where it isn't literally deadly to sit outside for ten hours in the early morning
not everybody is a neet that can get their mom to drive them to gamestop at 2 am
you should really settle down. you're just making yourself look like a bigger and bigger loser with every post
normally I wouldn't even hold the neet lifestyle against someone, but when you start getting vitriolic and angry just because you feel your ugly brass game boy gives you any ounce of superiority over another person, I start to lose respect
>Telling people to vote with their wallet and quit bitching about what can't be changed is an opinion.
It's actually called "advice," and is something your parents either should be giving you, or should have already given you.
>what can't be changed
are you even trying anymore?
I'm in university and im Employed. I'm not telling you im better than you because i have a MM 3ds and you don't im saying if you REALLY wanted it, like you pretend you do, you would have stood in line like the big boy you are.
you're confusing me for somebody else. I don't want nor do I care about the ugly brass game boy. I'm just a passerby cruising through the thread and recognizing your ignorance and blind rage
if you really don't care, then why are you posting and getting so worked up about it. your arguments are spiraling out of logical control
just take a step back from the keyboard and take a deep breath
none of this really matters. people will complain when something doesn't go their way. this is natural.
the great thing about a site like this is that you can simply ignore it and move along. there's even a built-in function that lets you hide threads that you don't like
I mean you can do as you wish. I just hope you realize that you really aren't looking like the intelligent and rational one here
>not everybody has ten straight hours of their life to commit to buying a game boy
And you made your choice and live with the consequences.
>not everybody lives in climates where it isn't literally deadly to sit outside for ten hours in the early morning
And you made your choice and will live with the consequences.
>not everybody is a neet that can get their mom to drive them to gamestop at 2 am
I didn't pick it up (as I had no interest in a N3DS), but if I wanted one, I could have gone and gotten one without needing a "mom." Some people work real jobs and have vacation days.
>you should really settle down. you're just making yourself look like a bigger and bigger loser with every post
You are speaking with more than one person. Half the time you are insulting me, who doesn't give a shit about the N3DS, and the other half you are talking to someone who WAS willing to give time out of his day to pick one up.
>normally I wouldn't even hold the neet lifestyle against someone, but when you start getting vitriolic and angry just because you feel your ugly brass game boy gives you any ounce of superiority over another person, I start to lose respect
From an outsider's perspective, all he's telling you is that if you wanted it, you had to be willing to make sacrifices, which is exactly what I have also said before. You didn't want it bad enough to face everything you needed to in order to get it, so don't turn around and cry about not getting it.
If you think ordering anything on Digital River (where I was forced to order the CE of Drakengard 3) is an easy process, you are insane. I had to call them up a minimum of once per week because they kept trying to fuck me around on my order.
It can't be changed. They were a Limited Edition unit. They aren't going to turn around and make it "Unlimited" just because you didn't get yours.
If you want to take a stand, don't buy a N3DS and email Nintendo, explaining why. Bitching about it on /v/ changes nothing.
I hope this is the case
I've waited this long to get a 3DS, and I can keep waiting
I'll be waiting til Gateway announces N3DS support, then importing a Japanese one.
If Nintendo wants to take a shit on their NA consumers, I'll take a shit on them too.
I realize that I am speaking to multiple people, and I am keeping track. all of them are irate and spiraling into worse and more flimsy arguments with every post, though, so most of my posts apply to all of them anyway
which is probably why you somehow assume that I've been talking to you. you even say "he" in your post, so you know that I wasn't talking to you. so why are you acting like it
it's always hilarious when people get this worked up online about nothing
it's just a brass game boy, calm down
god DAMN why are you so stupid tho lmao
but seriously though, calm down
No. Nothing you said is perfectly valid. It wasn't a one time shipment of New 3DS's that you got screwed on. You got screwed on a special coat of paint.
You'll either move the fuck on, or you will shell out the money for the system. One way or the other, you will get over it.
Sure it can be changed. Nintendo can change it. Europe & Australia are getting a 2nd wave, what makes you so sure US won't get the same. As for "limited" Nintendo hasn't even decided what the hell it is, the box says "Majora's Mask Edition" yet, one of their tweets claim it's a Limited Edition, they should just pick one and go with it. pretty sure we all know bitching on 4chan changes nothing, but we do it anyway.
i thought the pictures of it were ugly too but when i first opened up the box i was blown away by how good it looked in person.
i already have one
These are me
By not promising to ship more by now, I'm pretty sure that they have picked one and stuck with it. It's a "limited edition," and unless you like the prices on ebay, you lost out.
If you really want it, go drop the 425 bucks for it.
Either buy it, or don't. But it's time to stop crying now, anon.
it's along the lines of GBC and DSi; most new games will still be compatible with the old models, but the upgraded model has better hardware and some games will take advantage of that hardware
as of right now, though, N3DS is not a requires upgrade unless you really like xenoblade chronicles
You shit on them by buying their over priced hardware well played anon and then likely a licensed face plate, well played.
are you even listening to yourself
at what point did it cross your mind that "dude if you really wanted it you would pay 300% the retail price for it" sounded like a good counter-argument to anybody lamenting this very situation
actually, at what point did it really seem like a good idea to post at all
>By not promising to ship more by now
Nintendo doesn't into communication.
It would be one thing if they always kept us up to date and informed, but they don't. Therefore I think there's a 50/50 chance of this making a reappearance in the US.
>tfw kinda want the Xenoblade XL but went the distance to get my Majora XL at Target in the morning
that shit is like a badge of honor for me. I'm never replacing it
There are 2 solutions that allow you to get on with your day:
>Buy it on ebay
>Don't get one
Neither one of these decisions requires you bitching and moaning constantly. Pick a choice, and own it. Act like a fucking man.
this thread is specifically about not being able to get a desired thing from retail
given your visible distaste for people who lament not being able to get a thing, I'm not sure why you came in here and participated in the thread rather than simply hiding the thread and moving on
I would respect you more if you had a viable argument beyond "sup guys, that's a cool topic. but hey, shut the fuck up though, alright? just shut the fuck up you children. it's just a toy so who cares, guys. I mean, I care a ton about it but who fucking cares, right guys? I mean kids? fucking children, just shut the fuck up. shut the fuck up! I'm tell you on the internet to shut the fuck up!!! I really like spending my wednesday evenings arguing on the internet with transparent trolls who can't even capitalize correctly!!!!! but really though shut the fuck up okay"
Yep, that's all there is to it. Once the strikes end one way or another, product will start moving through the channels again and things will return to normal.
It's just, I know Nintendo won't do second runs of all these limited things that we missed out on during the drought.
Your response to being called out on acting like a child is to say, "This is a thread about acting like a child?"
You are several hours short of having 6 full days to come to terms with the fact that you didn't get your special paint job. During those 6 days, there have been 6 days of threads filled with lamentations and tears, and I've been quietly avoiding them this entire time, because I figured that eventually the young teenagers that can't get over a paint job would eventually be spoken to by their parents, and their parents would say to them exactly what I have been saying throughout this thread.
Get over it. It's done. There are two ways to ending the tears. Buy it at its overvalued price on ebay, or just accept the fact that you will not own that special paint job. More tears will not get you that special paint job. Depression feeds on itself, and to put yourself into that spiral over paint is silly. If you don't like where you are at, then do something about it.
It's pretty shitty that North America doesn't get the non-XL variant of the new 3DS, but I have an awful feeling that we will get it eventually.
And when we do, it'll all be part of an incredibly devious plan. It's pure genius in terms of marketing, but it's terrifying to anyone with more than 4 braincells.
>introducing: the new 3DS mini!
God fucking damn it, it's so plausible it hurts. Selling "mini" variants has always been a practical marketing tactic.
Someone screencap this post in case it does happen.
It's not terrifying if you stand by your principles and vote with your wallet.
If you don't want the XL, then don't buy it. Twitter Nintendo and tell them why you won't buy it.
not sure if you're one of the other people who already made this mistake (can't keep track of who I'm talking to anymore), but again, I am being mistaken for someone who actually wants the ugly brass game boy. I really, truly don't. if you have one and like it, that's cool. but I don't want the XL. too glossy. no cover plates. I'm fine with my japanese non-XL
but really, I outright told you that I'm a troll wasting my wednesday evening fucking around online and I continue to insult you but you just keep going. should I take this to mean that you like it? is it a fetish? I've never ended up catering to a fetish before. I guess I could keep going. idiot. fucking idiot. yeah, you like that, idiot? oh yeah
naw but seriously though, I'm getting bored because now you're caught in the "I'm just going to keep repeating my shit opinion over and over until I win by default" loop that so many intellectually bankrupt people fall into, so I'm just gonna go find another thread
it was fun though, I like you. idiot.
>Nintendo thinks Americans are all stupid giants
The whole world thinks this, why do you think it's
Led Zeppelin instead of Lead Zeppelin, or why the move is call "The Madness of King George" instead of "George III"?
Number 55 is exactly what I look for in shit like this.
>Not in your face
>Does not advertise
>Only people who know what it is will understand
That's my problem with most promo units. They display the name in huge ugly letters and its just fucking ugly.
>implying Americans won't lose it in 3 days within their fat folds.
