Nice one. Tbh the blue ain't too bad. Id prefer black though, but I guess if your going to apply skins it doesn't matter what colour. Could essentially get this for £100 as I've got £40 in gift cards.

Lets see what flubit offer

Amazon have now reduced the black one to £139 now as well if you want to add it

Lets see what flubit offer


Let us know what offer comes back please.

the black one is £139 on Amazon france and the blue oneone is £129, think I'll get mine from there

Might want to put XL in the title as, at a glance, it looks like £139 for a standard one which isn't a great deal.

Does it come with any charging cable to at least plug it to USB port, or nothing at all?

Go for it. I just ordered both the XL and regular to see which I prefer and send one back.

no charging cables or charger included but you can pick up a cheap charger on amazon or game .

if you have an older model just use that charger and failing that if your have any family with one just blag they're charger lol

i know i don't see why people praise that site, it takes them time to ship your goods, longer than Amazon and they mess up orders by sending the wrong items .

to much hassle for the little discount they offer , if people are looking to buy the item and have the money skip it and save the trouble a few pounds is hardy going break the bank just buy from the retailer and have they're easy return policy should any problems arise.

Each to they're own i just never saw the fuss and it was more of a hassle in the end for what may have only been like £2 or so saving .

that's a good price i ended up getting my for around £60 had some vouchers to use , i hope we get some new titles at E3 maybe a new Mario game i also wouldn't mind a new lugi's mansion or a wario land game but time will tell.

Will gateway work on this?

possible more than 9.2 firmware

Flubit gave me £135.68 btw for anyone wondering. Gonna stick with my previous 3DS. Not worth the price difference for me.

It will be a bit of a firmware lottery

When you sent it back did you have to pay a fee? I thought Amazon charges a fee for unwanted returns?

Free return with Amazon as long as you code the return labels ''reason for return'' correctly. I usually go with the '' incompatible or not intended for purpose'' and get it fully refunded.

The nn3ds is too small for me. It arrived today and I need to hold it strange, my hands are just far too big for it to use comfortably. The new XL should arrive tomorrow though so ill stick with the XL.

Great price. Well worth it

#Bargain for the new XL model. Not even buying it in Euros or Dollars can I find a better deal.

Mine arrived today - just done the system transfer from my old black 3ds xl. I do prefer the look of my old one but like the enhancements of the new one. Great price and thanks for posting.

Are you referring to the TN/IPS screen thing?

My XL from Amazon has IPS, but it's the third one that I've had - the first (IPS) had two dead pixels, and the second (IPS) system's stick stopped responding after a week. IMO Nintendo's quality control isn't what it used to be; never had any issues with their previous handhelds. Now not only do you have to worry about the two types of top screen panel (TN = inferior), there's also the hinge wobble with some being so bad that it actually interferes with gameplay.
