Well, I tried clicking the link and got "This Club Nintendo account is not eligible to take part in this promotion"

I got the same as Lomi, I am not eligible for it apparently

"This Club Nintendo account is not eligible to take part in this promotion"

Damn that looks good, just a shame it isn't the XL. Tried playing on a normal 3DS a few days ago but owning an XL I just can't go back to the smaller one

dunno if to upgrade my original 3ds for this or just go to the xl which i think id perfer

Did not work "This Club Nintendo account is not eligible to take part in this promotion".

Only the standard new 3ds so cold from me overpriced. Tried it with 2 different club Nintendo's and both didn't work

I was an original ambassador, so that won't be the reason

Reports of Ambassadors not being able yo buy on Twitter. Maybe Nintendo will fix.

But as a Hot deal this is rubbish. If you didn't become and Ambassador years ago, this is useless to you.

My login worked..... maybe it's working now?

It's a Limited Edition New 3DS so when they're gone Nintendo won't be selling them any more but you can expect scalpers to raise the prices of it.

Just tried all my club nintendo accounts (some date back from gamecube days) no joy =/

wonder what you have to do to be eligible?

Isnt the only thing limited edition about it the faceplate that says Nintendo on it and that it is going to be released a bit earlier...think I would rather wait and get one a bit cheaper :P

Until Game get them in about 4 months and market them as a 'Game Exclusive'.

They send you an email if you are eligible, I got an email at 10:15 for this. No idea what the requirements are

There's always that possibility that Nintendo will make an extra batch for a certain retailer.

No XL yet? Why not use 365games and have it very soon? I paid £170 for my XL model and have had it for almost a month.

I got the e-mail and I'm tempted, but as already mentioned it's not a limited edition console, only one front and back plate. I can't see that much point in investing in that.

not available to me either - been collecting since the points system began and had tens of thousands at one point. stop registering them when it became obvious there was never going to be anything worthwhile to spend the points on.

also: donkey konga is still the best rhythm game ever.

Does It Work Fine Connecting To Eshop? Im Thinking Of Getting One Soon

No email but when I follow the link and login I get "There was an error logging you into your Club Nintendo account"

Read you have to have received a special email from Nintendo to buy, £180 is a bit pricey tbh I only want xenoblade chronicles

Dear Nintendo fan, 

We'd like to thank you, one of our most loyal customers, for all your support. To show our appreciation, we're offering you the chance to purchase New Nintendo 3DS now, and get it before the official European launch! 


The first paragraph to the email I got.
I couldn't seem to log into the site to see the price. But someone showed it as £180. So that's a pass right away, I barely ay my 3ds xl, so I'm not that interested in an upgraded model.

Elite Beat Agents is awesome but the bongos point stands.

Why is this on here?

This is limited to a select few ambassadors. Emails were sent out by nintendo this morning.

No email=no purchase

Got the email.... seems expensive....

Would be nice if it was presented in a special box. Sadly I didnt get the email, but fair by nintendo compared to sony console special edition shambles

I got an e-mail but think I prefer the Blue metallic XL.

Lol @ Nintendo:

"Nintendo has declined to clarify how it selected Club Nintendo members for this promotion, providing the following statement to Eurogamer.

The New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador offer is by email invitation only for selected Club Nintendo members in Europe only who fulfil a certain criteria.

We are unable to disclose such business information, however we would like to reassure you that we are continually looking at different promotional offerings we can bring to consumers at various times throughout the year.

The plates are which will easily become a collector's item.

thats the kiddy version, get the proper Japanese one.

I have my email and have ordered one as I am a mug and am sure there will be plenty of bigger mugs on ebay in years to come.

I was never part of the ambassador program as far as I know it was all over and done with by the time I bought my zelda anniversary 3ds just after the price drop, I am however a mug who spends far too much money on Nintendo products and I register them all on club nintendo and other people's stars too because they can't be bothered with it all. So I think it is for us mugs who buy far too much Nintendo stuff.
