New DS & 3DS games from £4.97 in Blockbuster sale

55
Found 31st Jul 2013
Links are in the second comment.

I went through the killer deals on Blockbuster for all formats and found quite a few great deals for 3DS games and thought I would post. There's already a thread for PS3/360 but DS/3DS does not seem to have it's own section and this saves 3DS owners trudging through the all formats like I did looking for scraps.

I've tried to only include games of decent quality that are quite a bit cheaper than they normally retail for. Some of these are actually quite limited games that are hard to get hold of new for a decent price.

All in stock for home delivery at time of writing:

3DS

Dead or Alive: Dimensions - £4.97
Ghost Recon Shadow Wars - £4.97
New Art Academy - £4.97
Super Street Fighter IV - £4.97
Resident Evil Mercenaries - £7.97
Ridge Racer - £7.97
Pilotwings Resort - £9.97
Spirit Camera - £9.97
Nintendogs & Cats: Toy Poodle - £9.97
Mario & Sonic 2012 - £12.97
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D - £12.97
Heroes of Ruin - £14.97


DS

Warioware DIY - £4.97
Last Window: The Secret of Cape West - £7.97
Dragon Quest VI - £7.97
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 £9.97
Kirby: Mass Attack - £9.97

Some really good deals here with most going cheaper than used copies on ebay. Fill your boots!

If only Fire Emblem awakening was here

If only Fire Emblem awakening was here



Buy it anyway! It is well worth the £30 There maybe aren't any games here as good as Fire Emblem but there are still some real good ones. Kirby:Mass Attack is the highlight for me. Very underrated and I was happy paying £20 for it way back when. DQ Joker for a tenner is a bargain as well for a quality game. If you like RPGs and haven't play it then I recommend

Why? Ordered a 3DS XL yesterday lunchtime when they were £119, it's arrived this afternoon. Pretty good service

I second this.

Well sure I've received some duds from Blockbuster and they have even not put on full postage in the past but really? Can't people forgive the odd blunder? It's not like they don't refund you or have free returns if you are not happy. I've had about 10 refunds from them in the past due to not being satisfied with preowned quality but that doesn't put me off them.
Dead or Alive is a fantastic fighter, really good at £4.97.
thanks OP
Aww no Pokemon
Are these games pre-owned or brand new?

Oh wow these are some cracking deals then!
They have refused 3 of my cards wtf X.X
Starfox 3ds for £10, hot hot!
Got excited when I seen Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 then, thinking it was a cheap price but then I went on Amazon (as I always do) and found it cheaper there

I'll hold off for now but some good prices. Seems to be a lot of Blockbuster cheap deals lately.

Ah suppose this is brand new though, however I don't mind second hand if it's saving me money

Never had a problem with blockbuster...
Recently ordered vanquish for £2.97 and it was dispatched today
I guess the sale is hot overall and good to keep an eye on, but as for the games I wouuldn't want to pay a penny extra.

These are the prices I would expect to pay anywhere.

Yes there are a few like Mario Tennis and Starfox for instance that would have made the list had they been in stock for delivery. The purpose of my list was to try not disappoint and give people a look at the readily available titles that I can verify are of decent quality. They all seem to be in stock for me if I try and have home delivery so maybe try taking some games out of the basket and only trying ones I've listed?

This is a funny list actually because all you need to do is swap the allegedly poor Asphalt for the pretty darn great Pilotwings Resort and take out the newer DOA and Art Academy and those were the games I got at launch. The 5 I got at launch are great games that I paid a bit more than this for and was happy with. DOA and Art Academy are on the way for me now as I've been meaning to get them for ages.

Ironically I forgot to list some of these games originally and others had to suggest them but that is because I started shopping for myself and skimmed over titles I had.

Hope they can sort you out on the phone and you get the games you are after because a lot of them are definitely worth the money.

I'll have to check out a review for Asphalt. Only added it to cart based on the Android version

It's more than the 'odd blunder'. It's probably about 1 in 5 blunders for me. Returned a bunch of stuff and didn't receive a refund until I had to chase it up. Glad I sent it recorded.

Thanks for this I bought New Art Academy - £4.97, bargain thanks.
I had problems with my card a while back, I sent an email to them and it was sorted fairly quickly
Amazing deal on Dragon Quest 6, Zavvi is doing it for over £25
