This 'special edition' colour combination was never intended for sale in the UK, and the boxes are marked as such. They are usually American or Hong Kong imports.

They can currently be purchased on eBay 'Buy it now' for £110.00 (inc. free shipping) from Hong Kong.

I think it is important that prospective buyers realise what they are being offered here.

Also available from gadget asia for £102 delivered

Always a possibility, but not guaranteed

Theres a thread on it here

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/115666/two-discount-codes-for-play-asia-8-/all/vouchers/new/

Havent tried the vouchers here so dont know if they work, but there are other threads with similar discount coded

One code i have tried and know that works (well as of yesterday evening) was the $10 code from this website (2nd one down)

Also although the price states 96.31 compared to 91.58 on renchi, the difference in dollars is only $1 between the two websites, so they must be using different rates. Play asia price 189.90, renchi price 188.90 so it isnt really 5 pound difference, more like 50p so i would keep that in mind

Hope that helps

While all that is true, prospective buyers should also realise that all DS consoles are identical and universal and work worldwide because there is no kind of region lock on the consoles at all. They will all play games from anywhere in the world and if you buy a console from any other country the only thing you need to make sure is that you have a UK mains adapter otherwise you won't be able to power it!

Agreed.

I bought the Nintendo DS Lite US Special Edition Gold "Zelda Triforce DS" before Christmas.
It operates like the UK/European consoles; it just needs a UK AC/DC adapter (or a USB charging cable).

BFN,

I agree also! :thumbsup:

What I would like to emphaise here also is a fact of which I am sure most users will be aware, but which I think is worth repeating again here.

If you do have an imported DS Lite, please do NOT be tempted to use the power adapter which is included in the box, and try to plug it (via a simple adapter) into a standard UK power socket.

Although it might pysically 'fit' these adapters are only designed to work with the American 110 volt power supply, rather than the 240 volts we have here in the UK, and to use one would almost certainly damage your DS Lite, and could possibly be dangerous also.

Another, although much minor, point is that (so far as I can see) it is not possible to actually register an imported model on Nintendo's UK website, and only on their American one if you have an address in America, or Canada, I believe. This probably won't bother most people though!

A further point is that you dont get the 12 months warranty from nintendo

But it didnt sto me getting one from abroad either:)
#15
Not that Nintendo really need a boost to their sales of DS Lites in the UK at the moment... well not by the scarcity of them at the moment anyway, but I reckon that if they were to release the crimson/black model over here, they would simply fly off the shelves.

I am sure that as anyone who has seen (or maybe even purchased) one will agree that they really do look smart... the dogs 'dangly bits' indeed!!

I fell foul of that when i got one from tenerife, damn kids can't look after anything. Won't stop me getting a gold one though later. Should be ok if not mistreated.
#17
am i right in thinking you can charge the DS from a usb cable, hence negating the need for a mains charger?
#18
so whose better renchi or plAYasia?

Yes you can get a usb charging cable

Roadie, have only used play asia so cant comment on renchi

Was charged customs last time with play asia so may try renchi although i heard they use dhl and ups, two companies which are notorious for customs and charges

I think that is one downside to using companies who send orders by recognised couriers, such as the ones you mentioned, in that you will almost certainly be charged import duty, possibly VAT, and often a 'handling fee' as well.

If a pakage is sent through the standard Hong Kong postal service (say) ,who also provide a tracking service, it is often marked as 'photo frame', 'optical media' or a similar lower priced product, and (in my opinion) rarely attracts any form of duty.

I am sure that the majority of eBay members who have purchased DS Lites in the last few months will also confirm this!

I just bought a crimson and red DS Lite from an ebay seller in HK for £100.00 inc delivery.
it was shipped via fedex and arrived in 7 days (including xmas and boxing day!)
they had marked it as "Replacement under warranty" and I wasn't charged a penny in Tax.
it was a brand new sealed unit.
Chuffed.

Good Luck!

They've gone up a fiver since I ordered but still a bargain, they even include a european and UK charger.

All I did was put in the "notes" section of my paypal payment "Please ensure this is the CRIMSON & RED version"

it arrived 7 days later :)
