New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL present a number of new enhancements designed to offer the smoothest and most engrossing portable gaming experiences. New Nintendo 3DS has a screen size 1.2 times larger than that of Nintendo 3DS, while both New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL feature a wider range of controls with the addition of a C Stick and ZL/ZR buttons, super-stable 3D via face-tracking technology and built-in NFC functionality that allows for communication with amiibo figures. While New Nintendo 3DS XL will be available in Metallic Black or Metallic Blue, New Nintendo 3DS will launch in Black or White, but with the addition of a wide range of cover plates - 12 of which will be available at launch, with more to release in future - to customise your system.

Brilliant find, mate - was just trying to decide on which colour to get while battling insomnia and then I find this X)

Anyway to know how long this code will be active though? Looks to be a fairly short lived code (just the weekend or something)

Nvm - just checked the site for T&Cs and for anyone who wants to know:

Straight from the horse's mouth.
I will only buy them if they can run in 1080p and 60fps with the games that can support that!
Cool have ordered points or not. Still a good deal and Shopto are pretty reliable.

Plus £25 back in Reward Points! (Must be used by 8th Feb)



is there a code for the £25 reward points ?
as905

is there a code for the £25 reward points ?



No its just a promotion theyre running at the moment for 25X points up to the value of £25.
Its on their homepage
It says the points will be awarded on 3/2 and must be used by 8/2. So not sure if they will be, seeing as you only get points when item has been delivered, and that won't be until 13/2.

Update: I have received confirmation that the points will indeed be added to my account on 3/2

I've got one on order from France, but if you do get the points I'll cancel and get this. £25 is pretty much another game.

Can you let us know how you get on with your email please?

I'm confused. Tesco were selling brand new 3ds for £89. How is this good offer?

This is a new model called 'New Nintendo 3DS'
As a preorder for an item released on Feb 13th, will it qualify for the 25x points promotion which would have expired a while beforehand? If so, amazing deal!...

This is the newest 3DS which has an upgraded CPU (processor) amongst other things. Newer games made for this version will not work on the original models.

Nintendo are indeed a bit crap at getting the word out about these things though - many people still think the Wii U is just a gamepad add-on for the original Wii.
You can get a new 3DS for £79 on Amazon, and a used model even cheaper.
Ordered it, if the points don't come through I'll just cancel and order from France.
I am looking for 2 x of these. What is the best way to go? Order twice on one account or open a separate account and order again? Also what about the Toad deal which I am also very interested in? Could the code be used twice?

Edit: We don't yet know if this qualifies for the SuperPoints, but if it does; i think its a maximum of £25 in SuperPoints per account. So you could make another account to get it twice. And yes the code can be used more than once

No, this is a brand new model, not the old model.
Hmm, do i upgrade from my Animal crossing ltd edition or not. :\

Do they have any used models available? A used new 3ds might be a good alternative to a brand new old 3DS. Provided it wasn't too old.

This model isn't out yet so there isn't any used ones on the market.
I would advice you try one in game first. I did and im not too impressed, ill probably still get one but I wasn't blown away by the 'new' 3d. Ive had the original and now have a XL, and I don't find the 3D too difficult to keep stable on the original model even on its highest setting.
I took Ridge Racers to try since that suffers with bad crosstalking even at it lowest setting. I was hoping the new model would reduce this, but if anything it made it worse since I was unable to find the sweet spot manually by adjusting my viewing angle.
Like I said ill probably still get the standard model to complement my XL and play the newer exclusive games, but I doubt ill get a new XL to replace my old one.
All that said, good price and heat added.;)
My TopCashBack has tracked at £9.30

Are the screen resolutions still the same

Are the screen resolutions still the same



yes but the screens are better quality & no ghosting specially on the regular size N3DS
Also worth noting the sound is a lot louder then the Old 3DSXL

I never ever use the 3D on my 3DSXL, keeping it in the sweet spot is more bother than it's worth.

I used a N3DS and noticed the difference in 3D immediately. Maybe you have a big head or something.
When do they take the money? On dispatch? Can I cancel at any time?

Currently there is a 3DS and 3DS XL. This deal is a new one called 'New 3DS' and there will be a 'New 3DS XL'. Will be released on 13th Feb. They play the same games only the 'New 3DS' will have a few exclusive games which the original 3DS can't get. The new ones have better 3D, a C stick and so many more things.
