Nintendo discounts refurbished 3DS systems

Nintendo has temporarily dropped the price of many of its portable consoles at its online store, and is now offering select Nintendo 3DS systems for as low as $109.99.

The classic Aqua Blue and equally handsome Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS systems are now available via Nintendo for $109.99, while last generation's Midnight Blue DSi XL will run you $99.99. All refurbished systems have been inspected and repaired by Nintendo, and are guaranteed to be in working order.

Nintendo began offering refurbished portables for sale earlier this year, and has since expanded its catalog to include 3DS XL systems and SD cards. Perhaps you could put the money you save through buying a refurbished system toward that new Pokemon game that all the kids are talking about?
