I am thinking about this I already have a 3DS. But I am thinking of getting a 3DS XL and Donkey Kong Country 3D. Then I would get the free game. I have never played a Pokemon game.


So it might not be worth it for a game I might not enjoy. Even though the game is free.

I got a 3DS yesterday and I'm enjoying it. Never been a fan of Pokemon but a free game is a free game.

<< LINK REMOVED >> ...thats why its a promotion. To promote NEW people to purchase the system.


It makes no sense why'd you get a game you've had access to buying for months now, for free, when you own the system already.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> hell i just bought the system to play fire emblem awakening

best damn handheld RPG i've played my humble life


and to kill time with super mario 3D land

the 3DS is an ancient system, with a pisspoor internet browser


there is really no use for the 3DS besides playing nintendo exclusives

and in all honesty i don't really like pokemon that much, i've played it a lot back at those red/blue versions as well as the emerald green but then i just never touched pokemon again


game is too repedative, and it's getting dull after a while


if a new fire emblem was on it's way to the 3DS i would buy it in a heartbit

@quickshooterMk2 Try Bravely Default. There's a free Demo in the E-shop.

Plus calling the 3DS a "system only for 1st party Nintendo games" clearly isn't even opening their eyes since the 3DS has plenty of strong 3rd party titles as well as a great array of fun and/or challenging indie games.


I also loved how we felt the need to point out its internet browser, I mean really? The ONLY reason why you would use a handheld's internet browser is if you don't have a smart phone but if you can afford gaming, then you can afford a smart phone.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Which is nearly as funny as criticising the 3DS for being an ancient system. Acient or contemporary, the 3DS is fast becoming my favourite consoles of all time. Bravely Default is an amazing game and anyone who hasn't got it, should purchase it and that's coming from someone who isn't the biggest fan of JRPG's.

<< LINK REMOVED >> So the PS4 and Xbone isn't selling so great because the sale numbers of those system match the Wii U? Looks like you and three other trolls need to learn how to do research.

This is more like a pseudo-deal. I do not own a 3DS yet, but plan to in the future. If I were going to buy a 3DS, I'd wait until they release some sort of bundle because when you buy the 3DS it usually comes with a free game in the bundle. Then I would buy Pokemon, so in essence I still get one game completely free, but I also get a limited 3DS and a newer game (I'm waiting on the Super Smash Bros Bundle in hope that it actually happens!). But nonetheless it is a good deal if you are interested and looking to buy right now, but like I said in reality these "deals" have been present practically with every bundle.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Hardly! Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land are have shifted over 9 million copies each only being outsold by Pokemon X and Y which has sold over 10 million units combined in less than five months. Animal Crossing New Leaf has sold over 6 million units. Get your facts straight before talking waffle.

Just give the game if they register the system. That list is too short.
