Are these even selling?

Would deffo purchase one for £79.99, however with the 3DS out. I can see the prices falling shortly after easter when the 3DS launch/hype is over.

Shame I can't afford one of these at the moment, have the urge to play pokemon again.

Happened to me too, although thankfully I've already got a DS Lite so just renting the game.

I would personally recommend against getting a DSi, the 3DS can do everything a DSi can but so, so much more. It is a new generation handheld after all.

Now if this were a DSi XL, I'd recommend you all to go out and get it immediately, but the regular DSi has nothing over the 3DS.

Great price. Really worth considering a DSi & Pokemon for your kids if you're about to let them start gaming for the first time. DS games are always dropping too.

decent price for now but would defo wait few weeks,the prices will drop like a brick

That isn't actually true. The 3DS does not support Gameboy Advance cartridges.

The DSi doesn't either, only the original DS and the DS Lite support GBA cartridges. This is why I recommend the DS Lite over the DSi.

So 3DS > DS Lite > DSi.

Lol...

Neither does the DSi

The older fat DS's and DS Lites do though

Just get a 3DS for another £75

I'd go with the DSi until some worthwhile games come out. The games make the console, and currently the 3DS has nothing worth playing.

I'm glad I provided you with a 'lol' - obviously doesn't take much.

Hmm very tempted, I have a DSi and I brought the Pokemon Black already

Asphalt is what's not to like, sitting in a cardboard box with a steering wheel drawn on is more fun.

Is it really £75 pound more though? As if you are talking about Tesco deal you have to buy a game with it for £35. Which is probably £6-7 more expensive than buying the 3ds game elsewhere. Also £75 does not include the cost of getting Pokemon Black which alone would cost £20-25. While there's high cash back on the Tesco deal there no guarantees you will receive it.

While not as good as deal as before with the lack of vouchers, It still a very good deal If you going to buy Pokemon Black anyway. Taking account the lack of good and value priced games on 3DS compared to the DS. It Probably better to stick with the DS and wait for the eventual drop in price for the 3DS console/games or even the probable 3DS lite release

It is, but the DSi is really in a sort of no-mans land right now so you really should think well about your investment. I think people should either go all-out and get the 3DS, which will keep them occupied for the next 5-7 years. They could also opt for the DSi XL which is slightly less expensive, but undoubtedly the best way to play regular DS games, just not 3DS games. Or if you want to go cheap, go for the Lite and also get some used GBA classics while you're at it.
The regular DSi is just the loser in any catagory.

DSi > DSiXL... the XL is huge, I like my portable gaming to be... portable. There's no reason a DSi won't also keep you occupied for "5-7 years", it's not like they're going to stop making DS games, and at the same time there's no reason the 3DS will last "5-7 years". It's a good concept and carried out well, but it's old tech, I'd hope within the next 3-4 years we'll be far above what the 3DS offers right now.

tempted to sell my modded psp that I haven't switched on in over a year to get one of these

Got one of these the last time it was this price. It's a lovely bit of kit.

Lots of great games to keep me busy until the inevitable 3DSi Lite XL in a year/18 months.

I'm tempted, torn as to whether to wait for the XL to drop in price or get this now!

I actually want to sell my dsi i prefer my lite. My dsi comes with box and everything how much is it worth to someone ?

Occupied for the next 5-7 ye....hahahahahaha!

Isn't it obvious that the whole 3D is a gimmick, and within a year, they're gonna make another selling point?
Seriously, just wait until E3, and they'll be announcing a new thing.

Right now, the 3DS is a terrible investment, there's only a couple of games out now, and by the time Mario Kart 3D, OoT 3D etc come out, it will only cost £120 or so.

I could get a DS Lite, but with Pokemon Black, it would cost more than this bundle together.

Can't afford to buy at the mo, but my Pokemon fan son would love this, he still has the original silver DS, which is now pretty old, well used, and starting to fall to bits, despite having replaced the entire case housing, the hinges are starting to break again. Great deal.

I couldn't give a damn about the 3DS. Theres no reason to pay more than twice as much for a new console with games you don't really like, but You'll pay full price for anyway just to see the 3D effect.

I bought one of these last time the deal was one. If you play the Ds solely for pokemon games, or a maybe a few other RPG's, which I imagine a lot of pokemonaniacs do, then you should get it. The design looks a lot better when it's in your hands. The only qualms I have with it is the material. It doesn't feel nice.

I hate to sound over the top, but I hate confident comments from people who don't do their research. You're misguiding the readers.

I got this last time too as I needed another DS to trade pokemon (only had a DS Lite before).
So all in all you are paying £74 for a special limited edition DSi since you can sell the game for £22 to Cex and claim ~£4 from Quidco (not including 1000 game points =.£2.50 off next game purchase).

I meant occupied as in buying new games for it, I still play retro games myself as well.
Also I can imagine you not wanting to get a DSi XL because of it's size, but that still doesn't mean you should get a DSi as explained earlier. Go for the Lite instead and get some GBA classics with it.

@Paradox

No... no they won't. You may fail to realize that this is in fact an entirely different system instead of just a re-iteration of the original DS. This means that this system will have to keep selling for years in order for them to make money on it. It's entirely possible that they might re-iterate the 3DS, but don't go in expecting an entirely different system in the next 5 years.

As far as the 3DS is concerned, I bought one as a future investment. I am going to play some games that I have some interest in like Pilotwings and Super Monkey Ball but I intend to sell them on afterwards so that I don't lose too much money on it. However, there is absolutely no reason for them to drop the price before the holiday season, because everyone knows that the 3DS is going to be a big hit by then. By that time, it will have a much better library of games (new zelda, mario, layton, resident evil, maybe cave story, tales of the abyss and shin megami tensei if they get released in europe etc) but it will still have the same price point. I might as well just get one now rather than waiting for months and then spending more or less the same amount of money on it.

At first I was tempted in buying the 3DS since it can connect completely with previous DS consoles.
However one of rule I stick with consoles is never buying the first gen because there may be unknown problems and future revisions are usually better.
i.e. DS Lite (less bulky, better battery life). At the moment, I think the 3DS battery life of 3-5 hours is pretty bad.
Also there are not many choices in games when a new console is out. By the second revision there will be much more games out in the market.

I think Nintendo will keep selling the DSi for at least another 6 months with prices ranging between £70-80 and you can sell between £40-£50. Since this a limited edition DSi, it may sell for a bit more.

Doesn't it have better battery life and loads DS games faster. Also gives them a crisper display as the 3DS has a higher res screen and has to upscale but because its resolution isn't much higher it can look worse and softer. Not forgetting the price difference. The older DS range still has a few things going for it really. As a practical portable with long battery life the older range are better than 3DS.

The problem is for as many revisions that iron out problems there are usually more added. The original DS didn't suffer from the broken hinges the Lite does, the original PS3 had backwards compatibility.

At the moment Nintendo's problem seems to be educating the masses that the 3DS isn't just the same tech rebranded and with a 3D gimmick attached, it's significantly more powerful and this should start to show in the games.

True.

As a 3DS owner and a DS Lite owner the graphics difference is huge. Comparing SSFIV on the 3DS to Mortal Combat on the DS is like comparing a high ended PS2/Gamecube game to a SNES game.

The 3DS does lack games at the moment, and I feel that it was rushed, i.e. lack of internet until May update. However, once the Nintendo games come rushing in then this will get more attention.

If theres any doubts about the 3ds processing power, this video may change your mind!
