A little over a week ago, we reported that a special edition Nintendo 3DS LL would be launched and basically it was the handheld gaming console given a new coat of paint, and the likeness of Pokemon’s Pikachu painted onto its body. Well if you thought who on earth would want such a device, you might be interested to learn that the gaming console sold out on the first day itself, with fans clearing out the stock in Pokemon Centers in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. As expected from enterprising sellers, there are now multiple listings of the Pikachu-themed Nintendo 3DS LL on eBay and are priced from $450 and onwards. So if you were not quick enough to snag one for yourself, it looks like you will have to pick one up from eBay albeit at a much greater cost (original cost was set at $240). Then again, what’s the price tag on fandom anyway, right?
