How much does an average game cost on these Nintendo's? Like what is price range? I suppose it is something in the $50 range rather than in $5-10 range as in iOS.

Honestly, this late in the console's timeline, I would either get the 2ds xl for $129 refurbished (it plays everything, just lacks 3d)

or cheap out for the 2ds for $64 refurbised

** there are no major games planned for this console **

You would be playing from a large selection of excellent tier 1 titles; but no new ones. There is an extensive mod scene but grabbing games for $20-40 used seems like a no brainer. Even new games are $45 or so.

Compare that to the switch for $80 / game.

Great little portable systems on the cheap. Nintendo offers a VERY safe gaming environment for younger children. No trash talk. Curated and properly rated games (in general).

IMO, the pokemon games on the 3ds generation are better than the new one released for the switch!

Honestly, these 3DS are still a great deal and pack a lot of entertainment for the price. Not only does the 3DS have a massive game library, it's also backwards compatible to run DS games and GBA games as well. It's easily moddable with custom firmware that will let you play games for significantly cheaper than retail price.

Just take a look on Craigslist/Facebook Marketplace at the price these go for - $154.99 even with $7 shipping is a great price for these, considering it comes with a 1-year Nintendo warranty.

2ds xl is lighter, slimmer, and easier to hold, never use the 3D anyways.

Don’t forget that these 3DS units do not come with a charger.

Easily solved with a $3 USB cable from eBay / AliExpress, even better as you can charge from a power bank.

Also if you ever owned a DSi or later, it's all the same charger.

Dang, that's cheap - thanks for posting OP.
i guess my kijiji for $140/each will sit for a longggggg time.
I'd buy it again if my kids go back in time. They were fun with all the Pokemon versions.

Refurbs straight from Nintendo are in brand new conditon just without the original packaging. You will be surprised on how well they package their refurbs.

Also, as someone posted earlier, Nintendo includes a 1 year warranty on the refurbs.
