Is the Samus edition 3DS likely to have the improved screen quality?


I saw this on a forum

3DS Date Models:

2011 IPS - Almost Impossible/Impossible to find a 3DS produced in 2011 to have a IPS Screen, or Dual IPS

2012 IPS - Almost Impossible/Impossible

2013 IPS - There is a higher chance to find one but again IPS's were not as massively produced until later years, the chances of finding one are mostly rare, or impossible

2014 IPS - Higher chance to find one, IPS Screens may be easier to find compared to the last year due to Nintendo producing more in the year

2015 IPS - Higher chance of finding one. Nintendo produced more, however they were still sending out regular screens, and IPS Screens at the same time in the same 3DS's so it's extremely confusing to know whether or not you will get a IPS, Dual IPS, or Regular Screens. Some methods were found to finding some however they may be outdated to today's standards

2016 IPS - You will have a really decent, and high chance buying a new model from 2016 this is becuase Nintendo has (almost) completely stopped selling the top part of the 3DS as a TN/Regular Screen, and has replaced it with an IPS. However bottom IPS Screens are barley produced with the console, and may be present in future 2017 when the top IPS Screens are sold more

It's hard to say Malm. There's been a lot of interest in the new Metroid game in general. I posted this as soon as I could specifically for that reason. Hoping it'll be useful to anyone at all

If it's anything like the Metroid special edition, I highly doubt there will be much to go around. And knowing Nintendo, there will be a stock shortage..
Heat added!
Yes i think this will be very limited! Will also hold its value
I'm split about this one, like Tequila said the interest with the game has been high so it all depends on how much Nintendo produce, but it will be collectable for sure as metroid hasn't had much in terms of limited edition stuff from Nintendo so the demand will be there.
don't forget topcashback
Im quite suprised its still available and not sold out already, Ive already pre ordered it and will be debating if should cancel or not

Everyone who wants a 3DS already has one. Metroid has never been as big as Zelda or Pokemon either.

Doesn't really matter mate, if the metroid game is good and you manage to get the top screen as IPS, this will be worth a lot.

Thanks OP.
This was really useful for us.
If you don't want to pay 300 quid for it on eBay get it early because this ain't gonna be easy to find and Nintendo loves to keep stocks limited
Not my thing but had to give it heat none the less. There are people paying 3 figures for rubbishy retro tech 2DS units, it does not seem that expensive for a decent themed 3DS XL on balance.
heat added, but im now more happy with my 2ds XL than i ever was with the new 3ds XL
