Why? Well, the next next-gen systems are releasing this month, but more importantly, this.
Wait, you already have a 3DS, don't you?
Yes I do. But this is a GOLD Zelda-themed 3DS XL system. I've been meaning to get a larger version of this system, and this is it! Being one of the early adopters of the system, I've sat idly by too long as new system after new system comes out. It's time GameritisGuy gets his slice of the pie!
What about your old system?
Well, after the data transfer, I can trade it in, OR perhaps have the wifey play it...though she prefers a larger screen...hmm...
