Hopefully their suppliers get them info soon!

My wallet is ready as well :P

Yup, just waiting till they offer it up for preorder. I'm surprised it took them this long to make a page for it.

This is weird. The 3DS XL is less than a month away from being released, and we still can't pre order it off Amazon. I really don't want to pre order at Gamestop since gamestop is a rip off. I hope amazon starts taking pre orders soon.

I don't understand why amazon isn't taking preorders yet.

I find this troubling.

I finally got tired of waiting on Amazon to put this up so I just pre-ordered from They are offering free shipping and no sales tax as well.

Why is Amazon hating on Nintendo like this? Amazon doesn't like money confirmed. I pre-ordered on NewEgg since that's where I getting some of my other Fall games for the cheaps.

I'm pretty sure Amazon wants to sell it - any number of reasons a pre order isn't available. Suppliers not providing allocation, Nintendo not providing supply. Imagine the frustration if we were an Amazon employee and we couldn't activate the pre order! Still hoping they take pre orders soon.

Each morning I wake up, check the page for a pre order button. But it's not there.... We need to go deeper.

Pre-ordering from BB otherwise it will be sold out. Amazon you are not being smart on this one!
So Just placed my pre-order @ BB with some reward certificates came up under 190. Sweet Deal!

I guess I'm buying this in store from Target or BB depending on what deals they have. Also, why the heck hasn't amazon put Kirby's Dream Collection up yet? Another game I'll buy somewhere else.

I have to pay sales tax for BB here, but I will cancel my pre order with the in-store pickup if Amazon puts their pre order up. Actually, here's a thing too... The system is supposed to launch on a Sunday. Are Sunday deliveries even made via UPS or FedEx?

Posted on Aug 3, 2012 3:51:26 PM PDT
That is why I rather pick it up my self from BB Sunday morning! Even with the tax, I rather be sure and have it on Sunday. I will also be downloading Super Mario for double coins.

Only about 2 weeks from release and still no pre orders Amazon? Bizarre strategy.

Posted on Aug 3, 2012 8:01:16 PM PDT
I will be buying it at the Gamestop around the corner from my house if it isn't available here on Amazon. One thing that's good is that is that I will be able get it in the morning.

Posted on Aug 4, 2012 1:15:27 AM PDT
Yeah, come on, Amazon! I love to buy from you! I love to pre-order from you! WHY WON'T YOU LET ME? Please?

A quick glance makes it look like Amazon doesn't sell ANY Nintendo systems, it's all third-party sellers (and maybe Amazon Warehouse Deals). I'm hoping they'll get the pre-orders up, but I'm not counting on it.

FYI ... My launch 3DS shipped out from Amazon last year. I'm not saying Amazon will or won't ship the XL initially, but they have shipped Ninetendo in the past, at least at launch, and I would be surprised if they leave the XL model only to 3rd parties.
