DNP Refurbished 3DS handhelds available direct from Nintendo, including XL models

If you've been waiting for a price drop before upgrading to a 3DS XL, Nintendo has the next best thing for you: a refurbished trio of its up-sized 3D handhelds. They typically run $200 new, but you can get a redone unit for $170, or $180 with a 16GB SD memory card, in red, black or blue direct from the manufacturer. If you don't mind dropping the XL, a reworked aqua blue or midnight purple 3DS has lowered from April's price of $130 to $120, or $50 off compared to new. In all cases, Nintendo refurbs come with a one-year warranty and -- aside from the possibility of some "minor cosmetic blemishes" -- the Japanese manufacturer assures us that its quality standards are "VERY high".
