Curious where the Amazon.com pre-order page is for the Nintendo 3DS XL? With an expected release date so soon (August 19, 2012), we were too. So we got in touch with Amazon representatives to find out.
According to “Jayaraman from Amazon.com,” they don’t have the appropriate information from the suppliers in order to be able to make pre-orders available. Once they get the supply information, they’ll be able to sufficiently empty our wallets.
