Originally, I wasn’t going to buy Pokemon Black. The last Pokemon game I played was Pokemon Blue, plus, the last handheld system I bought was gameboy color…so yea, I haven’t been keeping up with the handheld market. Recently I’ve been pondering the idea of buying a DSi XL because there are a couple of games I wanted to play. I think the only reason I held off on buying a handheld was the fact that Nintendo seemed to be releasing a new handheld often, too often for me anyway. I saw some awesome deals for the DSi XL and almost bought it but I held back, unfortunately.
So there I was…faced with a nice deal on a game I wanted to play but didn’t plan to buy, at least not any time soon. $10 credit at Amazon, I couldn’t pass it up. Now…I’ve bought it but there’s one problem, I still don’t have a DSi XL! The 3DS is coming out soon…I could buy that but seriously, that’s an $80 difference. I’m stuck right now, should I just preorder the 3DS? Should I buy the DSi XL and forgo the wait for a deal? Right now I’m set on waiting for a deal but I’m wavering…I hope Amazon will just relent and give me a nice deal on the DSi XL as well. Just a little rant I guess, and of course to bring your attention to this sweet deal that I couldn’t bring myself to pass up…even though I don’t own the dang console to play the game!
Personally, I picked the black version.
