DON'T FORGET THE CODE - SETENJ12

Wish one of the big online shops would sell this cheap without a code so we could try to get Amazon to price match ;-P

Forgive my ignorance, but what's so good about buying from Amazon compared to other retailers?

Not sure if this code will work with consoles

Resident Evil
Zelda
Pilotwings
StarFox
Super Mario/Kart

They're the only games that interested me when the 3DS first came out, and still remain the only ones. Can I really justify buying this?Hmmmm

Code works, tried it.:)

Sainsbury's have apparently been checking for duplicate addresses, so watch out.

What is the offer on Tesco Direct?

Thanks ordered. I was in 2 minds over the 3DS XL, but at this price I may as well go for one and sell my old 3DS afterwards.

Lmao at the above poster

LOL at realblender.

Couldn't you apply the code to anything? Shouldnt the price you quote be pre-code?

Dont think I'm too keen to create another account.

Cold sorry.

The funny part is that he is serious.

Beware, this console doesn't come with a charger included.

On a plus note though, Chocolate Oranges are available from Rawlinson's.

There's always one...

I wouldn't buy one of these... I bought a 3DS and it's sat unused for months. The main reason has been the unbelievable lack of choice in games. There are so few titles that it's becoming a bit of a joke now. It's been out for over a year so I don't see any change in this coming soon. When it's around 30 quid a game, I'd rather get a Nexus 7 or an iPod and buy games cheaply instead. Also the 3D works quite well but so far hasn't been utilised effectively by developers at all, it doesn't add much to games. Just some words of warning.

Really cannot believe they didn't include a 2nd thumb stick and are releasing a circle pad xl, this thing will be massive with it attached.

Voucher worked for me even though I was already a customer. Been a while since I last ordered from them. Here is the link to all the colours

nice,the big screen is well worth upgrading that uncomfortably TINY screen.specially considering Luigi's Mansion 2 is coming.

Add Kid Icarus, Luigi's Mansion, Pullblox and Super Mario Land to that. I wish they would do Pikmin 1 & 2 and Metroid Prime Trilogy too.

Good price for those who don't have the console but I have a Limited Edition Zelda 3DS and as part of Ambassador Programme I got 10 free NES, 10 free SNES games that you can't transfer between consoles. Plus it's a bit big my 3DS and PS Vita are bulky enough!

some really nice games on 3ds specially mario 3d land & the brilliant pilot wings. nintendo is simply the best when it comes to handheld gaming.

I have Kid Icarus it is god awful, comes with an accessory you have to use in order for the controls to work. It's like a plastic thing that sits on the desk and you put the DS in it, can't even play the game holding it in your hands.
Also game is utter crap.

ROTFLMAO. What did the police say?

btw, this would not be a crime. If you think it is, tell us the precise criminal law (i.e. act of law) this breaks.

Similarly, nor is Lord Sainsbury's tax avoidance a crime. All perfectly legal

Do sainsburys deliver on the day of release or a day early like play or game? Don't wanna get it a week late

In-store price at GAME is going to be £200, so this is much better. Maybe we should post the Game deal and see how Freezzzing it gets.

tesco arent happy with me when they found out i had opened 10 grocery accounts to get a tenner off and then abandoned them. i had a complaint because the cookies and donuts i got in my shopping have todays best before date which is terrible, but they wont refund me and said they would put me through to the store - so i hung up. looks like its back to asda from now on.

Is this available for collect in-store?

I know shopto delivers it on the release date but not sure about Sainsbury's

I also informed Sainsbury by email who are better able to report cases of abuse to the police and seek prosecution. The crime is fraud and obtaining goods by deception. You may be interested in the media coverage to understand the problem in simple words.Martin Lewis said: ‘While checking the terms and conditions is acceptable and pushing within the acceptable boundaries is fine, lying or misleading firms is fraud and we strongly caution against it.’‘If the consumer has deliberately ignored the terms and conditions or misused a voucher in order to obtain goods, or cause loss to the retailer, then the consumer could potentially be defrauding the retailer, and could be prosecuted for fraud,’ said Rook. http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-2041963/Money-vouchers-crackdown-Shoppers-face-convictions-abusing-Tesco-Clubcard-Sainsbury-deals.htmlhttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2042102/Tesco-Sainsburys-shoppers-face-convictions-abusing-money-vouchers.htmlIt is in the police's hands now. I suggest that anyone who has opened multiple accounts to obtain a discount they are not entitled to, cancels their order asap.




Not sure if this is a wind up or not?

Anyway, even at the price post voucher/code, they're still making a nice profit. So I find it highly unlikely that Sainsbury's really give a toss about a couple of codes, as long as they are making a sale with a profit.

Wow, the police are rarely interested in roaming gangs of teens causing havoc on the streets (round my way) through lack of resource but there gonna give you time of day regarding the possible misuse of a discount code?! (_;)

Because of this, and because so many fans already own a previous handheld, an AC adapter will not be included.



Seriously Nintendo.

is this just a 3ds with a bigger screen? if so it's daylight robbery -deal aside!

Apart from the adapter not being included, you will notice if you have seen or owned a DSI XL how more bigger the screens are. I like the DSI XL more than the DSI and with this I will like the 3ds xl more than the 3ds.

Well I traded in my DS XL and my 3DS for GAME Credit and I was interested in this, but without an adapter it'll be useless to me. A pity.

Would people recommend I get a PS VITA instead with my store credit? You can use that out of the box can't you? Or do you have to pay extra just to get power into the machine?
