Cheapest I could find it online is at GraingerGames £165? Any cold voters know of somewhere cheaper?
#2
Nowhere in London is doing that it seems
#3
Don't forget some points as well, decent deal

Chesterfield Game had it at £148.99 yesterday when I went in... they seemed to be beating the local Grainger Games store by £1. I'm still torn between getting this and the DSi XL though.

Good time to be a 3DS owner. Lots of great and cheap software out there, the e-shop has just launched and Zelda and Resident Evil are just around the corner! :D

I have one, got it for £210 with a game at launch, and don't regret it at all. You'd be pretty mad to get the DSi XL unless battery life means a BIG deal to you. Is it worth the sacrifice of being unable to play Mario 3DS, Super Smash Brothers 3DS, Luigis Mansion 2, Zelda Ocarina of time 3DS etc etc? It is backwards compatible of course, I'm playing through Zelda: Phantom Hourglass right now as I type this!

Bargain price.

I was hoping the price would lower after the Vita unavailing, the software nintendo demoed at E3 looks fantastic but I want both so one of them better get cheaper. £149 is a great price.

148.99 at game and gamestation in newcastle. Grainger games for 149.99.
I feel sorry for people who bought this at launch...i hope vita price doesnt drop like this.

Its been this price at some GAME stores for ages, same with grainger games, has nothing to do with E3. Its down to most people not wanting/needing the gimmicky 3D or because it has no decent games in quantity, or a mixture of both.

Luigi's Mansion 2 was pretty much the only sort of original title the showed at E3. Every other game was a re-hash of older mario games etc. The Mario 3DS game they presented looked like a carbon copy of Paper Mario, just with different graphics, and theyre actually releasing a paper mario for 3DS as well.

Will definitely be getting a Vita over this, far better support from developers.

I hope the Vita price DOES drop like this! I will definitely be picking a Vita up as opposed to a 3DS.

However, if you want a 3DS, this is a great price. Nice find, OP. Have some heat.

On a note about the VIta, I read on Eurogamer that it is region free. Given that it is unlikely to hit the UK until early 2012, where would be the cheapest place to buy it from? USA? Japan?
#13
Come on Game, do it this price online!
#14
It was £190 in York last weekend or £170 with a choice of four or five games. I wonder if they would price match their Leeds store if it's not the same there now.

Does the battery life really only last about 3-4 hours? That's the one thing stopping me from getting a DDDS.
#16
il wait for the zelda bundle. it willl most likely be a better deal.

I don't know about that, Nintendo held off any launch titles to give the 3rd party devs a foot up after they made zip on the Wii.

You'd have said the same at DS/PSP launch, the fact is the best DS games weren't on anyones radar. Stuff like Layton, Pheonix Wright etc blow 99.99% of the PSP library out of the water and that's without mention of first party games. I can get a Vita like experience sitting in front of my television with a dual shock 3 in my hand.

The 3DS is unique but the tech is still very new. Once the first party support catches up and 3rd party devs really get to grips with what it can offer We'll have some amazing gaming experiences that aren't available anywhere else. And along with the inevitable 3DS price cut at Vita launch and a Christmas Mario you're looking at a machine that's £100 cheaper off the bat. And is completely unique. I do think that Vita will do well, but the 3DS will end up on top, even if it takes until Pokemon is launched.

A bit cheaper in the US. Like $11
The US is getting is for Christmas and we'll be getting it sometime after. I highly doubt we'll get it between Christmas and New Years Day so yeah it probably won't come out here until next year

If it is region free, I don't see why anyone would buy it here until the price went down. A lot
We're paying £70 more here for the Wifi version even though we're getting it later than them

great deal for sure.same price at GraingerGames (saw today instore).
there are fantastic 3DS games on the way,Luigi's Mansion 2,Mario 3DS,Kid Ikarus,Mario Kart 3DS,Resident Evil,Tekken to name a few..
#21
You get £130 cash for a 3DS at HMV, I just traded mine in there for cash. I got one at launch, there is a reason these things have dropped £70 since release...

One of the worst things I ever bought.
Absolute rubbish, the concept of 3D is a joke, it always looks wrong and blurry. (on everything not just 3DS)


Still, this is probably the cheapest price in the world right now.

Seeing that avatar of yours I can know you'll be looking to get one on day 1. That is a great day 1 release for it.

I have a contact in the States but not sure if they are deal savy. Anyone know of any US deal sites?

Try: http://www.videogamesplus.ca/
Canada but get everything in. Ordered LOADS of stuff from them. No import duty yet, I got my USA Wii from them.

Try: http://www.play-asia.com/
I got my original Japanese PSP from them at launch. Had it a mere few days after it was released in Japan. Though these guys can be expensive.

Try: http://www.yesasia.com/us/en/home.html
I bought my Zelda DS console from these guys. Delivered with haste at an absolute bargain price.

Although the last 2 are Asian based sites, they do stock products from all regions. No import duty on it either.

But not up to speed on any 'deal' sites.

I wad torn between this and a DSi XL. I borrowed a 3DS off a mate at work who after a week had been using it as an expensive paper weight. I had it for 4 days, and have to admit, I got incredibly bored with it. The games looked nice, but graphics don't make a good game. So, I bought a DSi XL two days later, and in truth, I don't regret it one bit. Whilst I have no doubt over the next 18 months there will be some great games out for the 3DS, it doesn't warrant buying one (for me) right now. I honestly think by the time the games catalogue has enough out there for me to want one, a newer 3DS will be out. I'm also not a fan of the fact the 3DS is region locked as I have some brilliant horror games I imported that are not available in the EU.

Game only lower prices instore like this when thru get non Gamestation competition . Grainger games have no stores in London or past the north, hence game do not drop prices in those areas. Supermarkets price like this all the time - my town has nothing but tesco for games/cd etc, so prices are like Hmv.....

The Vita RRP is £70 to £90 more expensive in the UK than the USA depending on the model, from the $250 to €250 conversion.

Apparently 3DS screens are dead pixel magnets, so I'd rather buy one in the UK than save a few quid importing one, and then having to import every game as well de to stupid region locking.

So a wifi one will cost c.£180 if bought from overseas?

Agreed. The fact that its not very social either is a problem for me. ie my friends cant see the 3d sitting next to me.
#34
Must be store specific. I bought a 3DS today at the Bangor store for £180 with Pilotwings. I was told it would be £200 without game, which doesn't make sense at all.
#35
Has anybody spotted this deal in the birmingham or coventry area? My local in Leamington does not have the offer. Stupid really as it should be nationwide! I want to get one for Zelda, but am also happy to buy some of the cheaper games too as one game is never enough, just don't want to pay more than I should.

PC World are back up to £197 now...hence I posted the £144.30 deal yesterday (price match with Grainger)...

Nice price but I'm waiting for the ps vita much much better than this thing and hopefully not too much more expensive.
#38
People are getting the Vita so wrong. All it is is a PS2.5, with the games that go with that. Who wants to play Uncharted, with worse graphics, worse controls, and on a tiny screen?! I think Sony just don't get handheld gaming. And this is coming from a very early PSP adopter, worst waste of money ever for me. The games were all just worse versions of PS2/3 games, nothing original or worth talking about.

The Vita looks exactly the same. Its a great piece of tech, but its just not what handheld gaming is about. I want games that are customised for their platform, not a platform that is nothing but a worse version of my home console. There are endless games on DS (I'm working my way through all the classics while I wait for good 3DS games to be released) that cannot be played, in any guise, on other platforms. The Zelda games are revelations on it. The same can just not be said for PSP/Vita.

You'd think people would learn after the terribleness of the PSP and its games library. Apparently not.
