Want To Make Sure You're A 3DS Ambassador?

3DSSerialNumber.jpg

If you're at all like me, I'm truly sorry. Maybe there's a pill you can take. But more to the point, if you're like me, you don't trust any promise completely until you see it with your own eyes or hold it in your hands. That's why, despite the fact that I've connected to the eShop on my 3DS a whole heap of times, in the back of my mind I've had this creeping doubt that somehow I wouldn't qualify for the 20 free games Nintendo is offering to early adopters (and folks who picked it up once the price started dropping a few days early).

For those of you with the same trust issues, Nintendo's set up a website where you can check and make sure that you're a 3DS Ambassador, guaranteeing you access to those free games once they start coming on Sept. 1. Simply plug the serial number on the back of your system into the web page below, and you'll get confirmation one way or the other. This could also be helpful for anyone looking to grab a used system in the next month or so. And yes, I did get the green text confirming I am a Nintendo 3DS Ambassador, which is an $80 load off my mind. Hopefully you'll get the same result; if not, you've got about ten days to find a sympathetic ear at Nintendo, or maybe a time machine.

I also had that doubt. Oh minor paranoia.

Thanks for posting the info - I checked and am an ambassador, so that's good!

I checked... and... "Undetermined".
I logged in before the date posted. I had a message in the eStore saying I'm a 3DS ambassador, and it's since disappeared.
And I'm paranoid. Wah! well, 10 days and I know I guess. *shiver*

Oh YES!
Ambassador.

I actually bought my 3DS while on holiday to the Caribbean (I'm from South Africa) so this is just a huge bonus. I felt like such an idiot when I saw the price drop, but this makes it totally worth it.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
