Summary: While the system is new, the posting is misleading. This is not a US version of the console, it is simply a console that can be played in the NTSC region. This system will be a UAE/Malaysia version that can simply be used in the US. Now, if all you want is the system and the ability to play US games, then you should get this, otherwise find a seller that clearly states it is the US version of the game. Dont rely on the Questions and Answers section either.
Summary: Have not opened up the DS yet, it is a Christmas Gift. I ordered this online and it came quickly, but it was delivered in a over sized plastic envelope bag with almost no bubble wrap. I would think more care would be taken on walmart's end to secure and protect the package. I am hoping it did not get beat up so badly in transport that it does not work.
Summary: I am fully aware this is a refurbished product, but it took me three different tries before I actually got a 3DS XL that actually had the Pikachu graphic on the faceplate. During the refurb process, if the screen is damaged in any way, removal of the faceplate is often necessary. However, in the process, most of the time the original faceplate will break, resulting in the 2 items I received with replacement blank yellow faceplates that did not display the pikachu.

Summary: An incredible example of poor management decisions and the "bean counters" rule in most companies today. Bought for my 11 year old daughter. Nice graphics but the volume is so low--due to cheap, poorly designed speakers--you can hardly hear it at full volume or even with ear buds. We are sending it back. Case, the other complaint mentioned in most tech reviews, is also loose and cheaply made.
