This design is super lazy and a quick cash in; Zelda deserves better. So.. much... gold... my eyesssssss
I actually think it's a classy design that's better than most of the previous European exclusive ones. The Japan-exclusive ones though.. my word... I'd love to get my hands on them

The inside face plate should be black with a bit of gold detailing; that would of looked slick. I agree with you, Japan has the nicest themed DS models.

It's not supposed to be used on pre-orders the last time this happened it was with Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS XL's they were all cancelled.

Just order without the code seriously.

Or place a order with amazon and one with this code just incase.

I had my animal crossing order cancelled by zavvi. Can't say for certain it was due to the code, but if you really want this ds to be honoured, I wouldn't risk using the code.

2015 Release Date?
#46
Just to be sure i will put in a amazon order aswell. :) Don't want to miss out.
#47
Where do Zavvi ship from ? Is there a possibility of paying VAT on it?
#48
Just pre-ordered from zavvi with the BAZAVVI discount code. £175.48 a lot easier to swallow than amazons £199.99.
#49
Kinda annoyed that I bought a Fire Emblem limited edition XL already... :(

Don't use the code I cant stress it enough they won't honour it and there is a probability they will sell out.

Come release you wont get one.

Its 24 quid more but you have the security of knowing you have it.

I have a feeling I'll revisit this deal and find people screaming trading standards.
#51
Want to echo others by saying: use the voucher and have your order cancelled just before release.
#52
I'm all for this thing but the console could sell out and then you've not only lost a decent deal but a collectable console.

My problem isn't so much the bundle, which is amazing, but the associated price tag. I can't quite understand as to how Nintendo can get away with charging so much for such out-dated tech. They're worst than Apple. At least with Apple, you get build quality. The 3DS just feels really flimsy in comparison.

The Vita might not have as many games, and isn't as established, but it offers incredible value for money (tech wise) in comparison.

Outdated tech or not. The 3DS is probably the most portable fun you can buy at this point.

Agreed, got my red XY console few days ago, it really is good.
#56
People keep using the Animal Crossing example yet, it's like people can't grasp the fact that the issue with that pre order was that it was insanely low priced, this however, is not!
#57
Or it was just because everyone abused the vouchers.

Anyone who ordered it without one received it, it even says not to be used on vouchers.

But yeah just prepare for disappointment.
#58
Also you can't grasp the fact this won't work.
#59
Ah well. Pre-ordered it using the code, if it doesn't work then it doesn't work. Won't be too long until this "limited" edition will become a lot cheaper anyway.

Definitely agree with you there - I like my 3DS designs more understated than loud (Pikachu 3DS is a different case though!)

Do Zavvi take your money before the order has shipped?

No, they charge on dispatch.
#64
Comparing apples with pears now? The Ocarina of Time was a 25th anniversary, truly limited edition. Times have changed. "Limited" edition gets banded around all the time now. The Pikachu one was limited too... you can still easily get it.

What Japan exclusive ones? o.o Now you've made me jealous for something I don't even know...
I have the OoT limited edition 3DS and I love it. It even matches with my new Zelda Wii U gamepad! I think the black basis with gold letters and design on top (including Royal Crest- the winged triforce). I like the look of that Majora's Mask idea but I think I prefer the Royal Crest to the mask (especially in that form) though I'm impressed that they changed the frame.

Back to the point, the version in this deal- well the two obvious differences is that it's an XL, and that it's currently available. I think the large triforce is subtle, which is either good or bad depending on the person, and I'm glad they put it on both halves (I was confused at first, I thought there were two options). Though I agree that the inside being gold is a little bold, at least it makes it stand out from other editions, especially since if I remember right all the normal editions have a black top half regardless of base colour.

I also think it's a good deal pricewise- the XLs are generally more expensive, and the concerns about this being a download code are unfounded. Not least because how can you sell a limited edition zelda console without zelda- unless you include the physical copy, at which point you can forget about separate resale value for that.
#66
why does the release date say January 2015?
#67
I'm really contemplating ordering this as I missed out on getting the Pokemon edition 3DS XL by minutes when it was on a 24-hour sale on Play.com for £160.

Does anyone know how long the BAZAVVI code lasts for? Just want to sleep on this before I purchase and I'm worried when I wake up tomorrow, it'll be expired because the discount code is allowing pre-orders and games consoles to go through, something which apparently they don't work on.
#68
They won't charge until they dispatch anyway so why not order now?+
#69
Going to order now and then cancel either the Amazon or Zavvi deal - most likely both though as I only recently bought the Tesco deal Vita. There is no way I can justify a Vita and a 3DS all in the space of 1 month.
#70
Can someone pls post a link to the Amazon one? I cannot find it there...
banned#71
hot!
#72
Not buying this deal, but just wanted to say that i've use Zavvi (and the Hut) for years, never had a problem. Items always delivered between 2-5 days and had pre-orders delivered early. So I wouldn't have a problem ordering from them.

Just posting this to balance out the amount of people complaining about them.

(Not sure why you posted twice but) If "there is no way" then why order...? What possible circumstance could you be covering for if such circumstance is impossible... doesn't make sense really...
#78
Just ordered from Zavvi for £166.71 by using quidco and new customer referral code on top of the 10% off. Just hope it doesn't come in Jan otherwise I'll buy a standard black XL and sell this when it arrives.
#79
been waiting on this bundle and so close to buying it...but i don't know about the gold interior. i much prefer black around the screen. and would still need to get a physical copy/sell the code. hopefully there's some deals on the standard XLs in the next month or so before ALBW comes out.
#80
Had no idea the top half was gold inside too. You just saved me 200 quid.

Terrible design choice to put anything but black around a screen. So much more distracting, and whites will never have the illusion of actually being white without any contrasting colours.
