Cool, though I could have sworn I only paid 250 coins for the Luigi one I have. I don't need 2 of these, plus that would leave me with only about 100 coins.

Like a fool I waited too long to get the Luigi one. I doubt I'll get this one. I did just put in the order for the 18 game case that just went back up. I think I should keep a closer eye in club Nintendo.

I like how it looks. It's very beautiful but If I get it it will probably be later on.

I think the Mario one looks better than the Luigi one. The shape is distinctly different and "red" > "green". :)

@Koovaps, If you are looking for game storage, check this out. Have a look a the picture gallery for a better idea of the product. I bought 3 of those & I do not regret it at all. It's great value & it fits 24 DS/3DS games per cases.

Hmm, thanks Davoid, I just may look into those. I tend to like all sorts of game and system cases. The goofier the better. I have way more cases than games it fill them with. And I have quite a few DS games, and several 3DS games.
Also, I'm a Luigi guy.

I have the Luigi one and both are shaped exactly the same way, except the Mario one is mirrored.....the M print is on the backside of the Luigi one. They probably did this one purpose for those who want both and if displaying them, the hats wouid be like pointing at each other.

But other than that, there is no difference in the shape, only difference is the color.

@gamewizard65, close enough... but not quite.

How durable is this pouch? Will it absorb the shock of a drop from a desk for example.

I would say, "yes". I mean, lets say I had my 3DS in this pouch and I had it on my kitchen counter and it fell off and hit the hardwood floor... I would think it would be enough to protect the 3DS, esp. from any marks like scratches, ect. Now, Im only guessing here. I would prefer that it wouldn't fall off the counter or a desk.

The material that the pouch is made of is kindof 'spongy' feeling and I would estimate around an 1/8 of an inch as far as thickness, so if the 3DS did fall from a height around 3-4 feet, I would think the innards would be protected from the shock of the fall, meaning none of the internal components of the 3DS would break apart.

How comfortable do I feel in telling you this? On a scale of 1-10, where a 10 means....yes, just keep knocking the 3DS off the desk, over and over until your heart's content or a 1 means...Gamewizard's off his rocker, don't listen to a thing this man has to say.

I would rate my comfortable level at an 8.

Does that help?

Yes. I really want to purchase it but I don't want to feel like I'm not getting enough for my coins spent. It says it is supposed to be a protective case. I don't plan on dropping my 3DS regularly but it would be nice to know if I can count on the pouch at least softening the blow.
