Pretty good price for the 2DSXL and Nintendo's refurbs are almost "like new" from my previous experiences.

Just for people's info:
- Supports all 3DS games
- Backward compatible with DS games
- Smaller battery (shorter battery life) than NEW 3DS
- Same processor has NEW 3DS so you can play SNES Virtual Console games
- Lacks 3D feature, however makes the top screen much lighter
- Takes some work, but can run CFW and homebrew

The retail package did come with a power adapter, but this listing is unclear whether or not it comes with one.

This is the general price, they do it every few weeks. Been watching this for a while, waiting for it to drop below $100 - not in any rush, but bound to happen soon

Okay SD fam: why should I buy one of these? Already have a switch. Any easy Homebrew mods?
The latest CFW method seems a bit involved. The ntrboot method works on any firmware if you have the right compatible flashcard. Regardless, there isn't a "simple" way and will take some steps.

I just did it to a couple old 3DS we had lying around and I found it pretty simple compared to the days of cutting traces and soldering them back on the 360 to flash the drive. It has also been this price for some time now on the Nintendo store site. https://store.nintendo.com/new-ni...ished.html https://store.nintendo.com/new-ni...ished.html

Eh... I did CFW on my 2DS XL a few months ago. It took my slow butt 90 minutes following the steps from beginning to end, and I was taking my time. Just follow the instructions, step-by-step, and you'll be fine. I'm pretty sure that a 3DS-family console with CFW is by far the best value in video games today.

Now I have a portable console that can also play SNES & Genesis games. How neat is that?

I have experience installing/jailbreaking devices for years but the 2ds (3ds family) was super easy to install CFW. Also I did buy a refurb 2dsxl from Nintendo a few months back, and it was in perfect condition.

I bought my 2DS XL 6 months ago, did CFW, and am still extremely happy with it. If you like the DS/3DS library and can follow the CFW instructions, I think this is a good deal.

And as the poster wrote a few messages above, CFW is much easier than it used to be. No hardware modifications are necessary now. If hardware modifications were necessary, there's no way I would've tried it myself.
