These are all lower than GameStop, which sells refurbished 3DS and DSi XL systems for $160 and $110, respectively. Gamers can save $30 on a 3DS console and $10 on a DSi XL handheld by buying direct from Nintendo and have a one-year warranty to boot.
Whether or not this creates a rift with GameStop remains to be seen, and Nintendo may not care either way. A report by Kotaku last year shed light on the fact that you can't buy Wii U and 3DS hardware direct from Amazon, which is a much bigger retailer than GameStop. Amazon will fulfill orders by some of its resellers, but doesn't offer Nintendo hardware as a direct sale company, possibly suggesting that the relationship between the two companies soured at some point.
