Hi everyone, it’s 2019 and I still haven’t bought a 3ds, because I can’t force myself to spend 170€ on a new machine. And, no, I don’t want the 2DS, XL or plain. They are fine machine, but if I buy a 3DS, it must be the 3d capable “new” ones.
So, I see that at my local Gamestop they are selling used “New” 3DS at 70€. I am always wary at buying used hardware that could had be victim of young kids as their first gaming device, but the price is really good. And Gamestop can always give me store credit if the machine is broken,
I wanted to ask, are 3DS reliable machines, like the majority of Nintendo hardware? I remember some problem with Game Boy Color (all those missing battery covers) and DS Lite (the latches). Is the 3DS prone to some BUG hardware malfunction that I should be aware of?
