Yup yup will be downvoted - but this is only in stock for LAUNCH in places which take money upfront. Nintendo charge on dispatch - so go for it!

UPDATE:

A few people concerned if this is launch stock. I have now got confirmation from Nintendo UK that it is indeed launch stock. Please see their response below

Cool just incase my tesco order doesn't come through

Cold, simply because it is RRP so not a deal. Deal implies some saving over RRP, none to be had here so not a deal....

Heat added.

2.3% cashback too via Topcashback

Really trying not to pre-order this. Burnt on the Wii U, and 3DS day one purchase (poor year 1 libraries). Need to hold out. >.

I appreciate the information, but not voting either way as it's RRP.

My be to you sir, but that's not what the word actually means. I guess that's why it's call HotUKDeals and not just UKDeals. Glad I could help. Thanks for taking the time to post OP.

Does it though?

So if Ford released the Ford Mustang with an RRP of £5000 you're saying that wouldn't be a "deal"?

Game still have them instore to pre order incidently.

Where does it say guaranteed day one?

Cold, don't care for Nintendo

Nintendo only sell stuff they are sure to have in stock on launch :). It was recently out of stock until today meaning they managed to secure more.

No they don't!

I preordered the Grey from then as soon as they listed it and was 3.33% topcashback at the time but keep thinking the Grey looks boring compared to this one
Anyone got an opinion on this ? TIA

In December I ordered a NES Mini controller, a couple of days later they took the money, three weeks later they cancelled the order citing they couldn't get stock. I had to chase them to get my money back.

I wouldn't trust them with anything, and if it does go pear shaped, they really won't give a damn!

Ah that's a shame Sorry to hear that! Well let's give it a go and see. Hopefully we get it. I assume there's been a few cancelled preorders too - so could've just released those instead. Plus - worth the extended 2 yr warranty!

It's that 'est', the ultimate excuse.

FYI my preorder I made on the day it became available says the same - estimated dispatch 3/3/17. I contacted them regarding this and they told me they dispatch preorders to arrive on or before release date

I was told I was on the 'second wave' when I ordered last weekend but to turn up on launch and try my luck

Maybe there might be a case for this as a deal if it offered exceptional value in its field like a £5k mustang would in the field of automobiles but this blatantly doesn't. Ps4 and xbox one are far cheaper and more powerful, have huge existing libraries with lots of great games under a tenner each. Yet if i go posting "deals" with them at rrp say at amazon they would obviously go freezing in seconds just like this "deal" should imho but just because its new and hence somehow more desirable and by nintendo, surely the apple of videogames, it gets massive credit for being the standard price...

I would never ever pre-order from Game ever again. I pre-ordered the mini nes from them and it was supposedly dispatched twice and never turned up. Took 6 weeks to get my money back! pre-ordered in august, got dispatch email mid nov at the same time my money was taken and refund came through just before Xmas.

Heat for the effort

Pre-orders available at game.co.uk - Much rather buy from GAME than The Hut...

In huge letters 'More Stock Available' for the Grey one. The Neon colour is on Wave 2 though...

How is this even a deal?
It's RRP.

there's always one..

Good if you trust them to deliver on launch day,mind you amazon are not great for deliveries on launch days either.

Sensational deal, HEAT all the way. Get this on the HUKD front page, deal of the day. I know is not a mainstream console, but lets not discriminate and all that.

Yup they have loads of stock left, it's only one per customer so they won't be scalped lol.

you could try Amazon me and about 3 others cancelled theirs today for the neon. waiting for a Mario bundle instead. this will be the first console in about 15 years I haven't bought/won't buy during the launch window. I do want it but im not rebuying my Wii u games on another format with no real difference. I love the Wii u but Nintendo handled it so badly.

Thanks for posting. Heat added

Everybody that's complaining that it's not a deal, you're right.

It's a heads up for those that are looking for day one stock and don't mind paying the RRP, which you normally do for day one stuff.

Applying heat makes more people aware.

Personally speaking, with something as unproven as this I think you'd have to be nuts to pre-order it.

Still, it's your money..!

Im looking forward to getting mine on the 3rd, then waiting till late April to get the first game

​The keyword is 'instore' and not 'online'. You pick up your preorders instore when you preorder instore.
