Newsbrief: In a move that will no doubt ruffle feathers at retailer GameStop, Nintendo is now selling refurbished hardware directly via its website at a cut-down price.
The "Authentic Nintendo Refurbished Products" program offers Nintendo 3DS and DSi XL handhelds that Nintendo says "have been cleaned, tested, and inspected to meet Nintendo's high standards."
The refurbished devices come with a one year warranty - the same warranty that is offered on new handhelds. Notably, the prices undercut GameStop's own refurbished business on these particular Nintendo models by around $30.
More details can be found on the Nintendo website.
