Listing fee (if you've already used up your month's worth of free listings), final value fee (they also include your P&P charges in that!) plus Paypal will take a small cut for handling the money. The final value fee is the killer. It used to be 10% but I'm pretty sure I read that it had increased to 15%? May be wrong.
OK, I understand now - yeah, eBay fees are ever more costly as the years go by, but it is what it is, and I s'pose I just accept them now. After all, where-else online gives you such visibility?

The package from Nintendo arrived yesterday, I've yet to open it, still deciding what to do...

I was thinking the same thing to be honest but at least the Pokémon one is free

Well, gonna be an expensive couple of months anyway. I'll take that Majora Gold New XL, the Majora Collector's Edition (Too sought after and tempting to cancel it now.) and Xenoblade thank you.

Got my order in for the Majora Edition New XL earlier. Looked an hour later, the sucker was already sold out, while ebay is now flooded with hundreds of listings for it! o.o

Guess anything with the words Nintendo and Limited has to be snapped up as soon as possible now.... :/

Feck - was hoping to pick up a MM special edition "new" 3DS XL, but I don't see them anywhere on the net for pre-order :(
Can't believe the Ninty shop sold out in 15 mins :?

Are they likely to appear anywhere else for sale or pre-order?
Fresh Spoo?

It might be a Nintendo Store exclusive in the UK as nowhere else has listed it yet, though nothing's been said on its exclusivity. Still even Game has list the Monster Hunter XL...and that's now even sold out on Nintendo's website.

You'd run the risk of Nintendo's next firmware update catch wind of this and perhaps bricking your system though.

STILL, if you are upgrade to an New Model next month and keeping your old 3DS, could always keep the older model offline and have it as a dedicate import machine...

Don't you HAVE to be online to use the browser for this exploit though? Just thinking that if the browser needed updating via firmware or something then you're screwed.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

gives me a reason to start using my launch 3ds again, just updated to the latest firmware and im gunna leave it at that and just use it for imports now :)

Edit, megamixer- don't think the browser alone can just be updated without a firmware update

Also I've got a few download codes spare for the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate special demo, if anyone wants one let me know :)
