Default Trade US 3DS for European?

Hello,

Recently I brought a 3DS for my son from the US, unaware of the regionlock.....
So is there anyone that would like to exchange a european 3DS (pal version) for a good-as-new US model (ntsc version).

Thx - "stupid dad"

^^^^ That GameStop offer is no longer valid (expired last year) and even if it was, it applies only to US consumers and its not about exchanging a 3DS from different regions. But about exchanging your 3DS for a XL.

You'll have better results if you just try and sell the system on ebay or similar places on the net.

Then use the money to buy a 3DS from your particular region of the world.

Live and learn.

Funnily enough, my dad did the same thing- I'm an American with a European model 3DS.

I haven't done anything with mine, only turned it on and off a few times. I'd be very interested in trading our two consoles, if the offer still stands.
