Nintendo US selling refurbished DS and 3DS units

Publish date:

Nintendo's US online store is selling refurbished handheld consoles.

DS and 3DS units with 'minor blemishes' are available to buy directly from the firm at a slightly reduced price.

It's similar to Apple's refurbished store, which sells Macs, iPads, iPhones - often ex-models - at more affordable prices.

And like the Apple store, Nintendo is offering a full year's warranty on the products.

There are currently no plans to offer the same service in the UK and Europe at this time, a Nintendo rep told MCV.
