During the 15 day period from the end of September to October 10th 2014, Nintendo is releasing three different limited edition 3DS consoles.
Nintendo released the Super Smash Bros Red and Blue Limited Edition consoles at the end of September for $199.
(I love the art design!)
The Red Smash Bros 3DS is selling for $250 already.
The Blue version is selling for a bit less than retail price.
It looks like the Red console is the one most sought after by collector's at this point.
On October 10th, Nintendo is releasing a Nintendo NES version of the 3DS. It is a GameStop exclusive.
Every other limited edition Nintendo 3DS released so far sells for substantially more than it's original price.
They are awesome items to have in a collection and they are very safe in terms of keeping their value.
