Careful anyone who purdcahsed a DS in pink from ebuyer this week they are not uk products but US imports only for sale in the US, CANADA, MEXICO and LATIN AMERICA. this is because they are not CE Approved and also warranty void in the UK.

Anyone who did purchase one i suggest you ask for a replacement immediately.

ds's are region free, it really doesnt matter where you buy it. ebuyer would honour the warranty on any they sold, they would have to, so its really not a problem.

CE mark means nothing, the chinese stick them on anything just to get it through customs.

Boring!!!!! Go and find something else to worry about...

If people really want to spend £150 on a DS to make their Xmas go off without tears then let them. I have 3 DS's in the house, a USA Crimson and Black, a JPN Ice Blue and a UK White one - they are all the same - stop worrying!!

Yes just like the iphone's from france they were selling before the threatening letter from apple.

Anyhow pixmania don't ship uk products all the time and nobody says anything.

Not really a deal, moved to the misc forum...

Read Ebuyers terms and conditions, after 30 days thet refuse to honour the warranty and tell you to go to the manufacturer.

Unless you take them to court or get a computer magazine or similar to chase it up they will keep telling you it is in their terms and like it or lump it.

Yes it's against the law but they will try their hardest to push that law to it;s outermost limits.

So unless Nintendo Uk or (Or EU or wherever they are based) honour the warranty you could be in trouble.

Some of the posts on this thread are over the top, the person has clearly made a valid point and you lot have shot them down without even knowing what you are talking about (i.e. Ebuyers tough stance on 30 day policy.)

So unless Nintendo accept a worlwide replacement policy then you could be in trouble if iyour DS develops a fault.
