Found 2nd Nov 2014
New Nintendo 3DS XL Handheld Console

I know this wont be for everyone, but for me I cannot wait and have it pre ordered. This will be shipped at the end of November from the UK via Australia as they get it this month! Its the PAL version so will work fine in the UK/EU.

They also do N3DS and N3DS XL in different colours.

postage is extra,

enjoy.

They accept Paypal too, for the more cautious lot, like me

what is the rrp on this anyway?

Are you sure this is actually being imported and it's not just a place holder pre-order date? £170 is what I would expect the RRP to be in the UK, I'd expect it to be more from Aus.

For which country? Its not got a release date for America or Eu/UK yet. Most 3DS XL's out now are around this price anyway right now so I'm guessing this new one will cost more. It is Great Britain after all lol.

Their website states:

'This is a pre-order - the item will be despatched to you on or before the release date of 28/11/2014'
'If you are purchasing a pre-order then the payment is taken immediately and the product will be sent out to you either on the release date or a couple of days before it. You will receive a confirmation email when this has been dispatched.'

Hope that helps. When the release date rolls around i will update this thread

But that's what I mean. Nowhere on the page does it actually say that it's an Australian import.

The price seems comparable to the current 3DS XL (with Mario 3D Land) but I'll wait for Amazon to put it up for pre-orders.

Jumping on this if the confirm its an import. Despite no games specifically coming out for it in this country for a long time

You could send them a message but the fact they say you will get it on or before the 28th of this month, and it doesn't even have a UK release date set should imply its an import.

I haven't had much look with the customer service on 365 Games either. So even if this is confirmed as an import I'm going to be wary. There's going to be no manufacturer warranty, so you'd be relying on them.

I've emailed them, will update to confirm when they get back to me.

intresting would like a 3ds xl but waiting for the price to drop a bit (not on the new model as i dont think im intrested in that) as i dont know if i need the updated bits or not

Just had a reply off of them.It is the Australian import, so you will receive it before the end of the month.Iwata just said recently that its not going to make its way to the UK any time soon.So this is a great deal.

Unless they're getting a whole load of New 3DS's from Australia/New Zealand (which the release date over there is actually the 21st November), it's highly unlikely that they'll be released over here on the 28th November, as Nintendo have already said that it won't be released until 2015.

Hows that going to hinder the use and purchase? I haven't registered one device yet.

Black is now out of stock but they have blue ones 19 days to go.

Do we know about region locking? Is AUS in the same region as us? Will it play UK DS games, etc?

It is PAL which is UK and Europe. it does everything the old 3DS/XL does but has the new control stick/bumper and has a faster processor and more ram.

edit: also some of the newer games that are going to be released for it later will be only compatible with this new 3DS but don't expect any games like that until next year.

I've put a link to this deal from my deal page as the standard size New 3DS is currently unavailable.

Also, you might want to put something in the title to let people know it is the brand new model. I was getting lots of down votes before I changed mine. Also, the black one is available again now.

(PS. Didn't see your deal yesterday sorry as I searched for "365 games" with a space, and checked the link for the Blue XL, as the black was out of stock).

Hi, if it's still of interest to you, I've uploaded a screenshot of my correspondence with them on the sister thread for the standard 3DS here:
New C-Stick 3DS @ 365 Games

everyone check your accounts, both of my accounts had £7.50 in points added to them so this is £162.49

I do hope these cards and cubic ninja goodness work

Anyone had their order cancelled?

I pre ordered the Black 3DS XL yesterday and paid with PayPal. The payment went through instantly. I then got an email this morning saying that automated systems have checked my PayPal details and couldn't verify them, and a refund is being processed...

I went straight back to re order it, and the option has disappeared, with only a 'More Info" button on both the black and blue XL models... Bit too much of a coincidence to me.

The deal thread and discussion for the standard 3DS linked above clearly advises against using PayPal -

Sorry I ordered the last one I do hope for you that they will hold it back for you on Monday I would call them and ask because that stock should become available again.

I paid by PayPal but I've been buying with them for over five years on the account so I hope being a long time customer of 365games will make a difference.

Emailed them and got a reply saying that it was definitely due to being unable to verify my PayPal. Doesn't make sense to me as I use the PayPal all the time, however I asked if I could pay with my debit card instead. Waiting for a reply, fingers crossed they haven't released my 3DS as stock since the refund is still processing.

There is a set price, it appears when stock is replenished, which has been done more then twice now. Keep checking back.

So they didn't hold my 3DS for me... As soon as the refund was initiated it was put back as stock for someone else to take! They told me they are looking at securing a larger order though so I really hope they add more stock asap. Was looking forward to playing Alpha Sapphire on it. Should have just paid with my debit card

I'm wanting to buy my mrs one so I will be keeping an eye on stock.

So they got a restock today. The cheeky buggers raised the price by a fiver... Regrettably re ordered.
