There's loads of decent, non kiddy games for it.

You just missed a Game Trade-In Deal. Other than that there hasn't been anything worth noting.

"Kiddy games", like that even means anything. Nintendo games have more depth and fun mechanics than pretty much anyone else on the market right now.

and its only going to get better with indie support.

Must... not... spend.. cash...

STOP lol

I've almost pulled the trigger on this a few times this morning already!

so tempting

Is there way to get free delivery with Rakuten? Otherwise the title is misleading, should be + £5.95 for delivery.

I still very much want to know this - otherwise the title is misleading.

Quidco 3.5% so that should cover a portion of the delivery charge (not ideal but better than nothing as free delivery doesn't appear to be an option)

Kiddy games? There a bit more this system than Moshi Monsters and Ninja Turtles. Get back to your Vita ;)....

Pretty rubbish offer when you could sell an XL on ebay for £90+ and buy the £159 new XL for less

Did anyone order the grooves-inc £116 last week? I ordered and they said they wouldn't send it due to a database error but they haven't refunded me, I emailed over weekend saying my order was still in processing and could they sort it, they responded saying 'it wouldn't be sent as per previous email' yet my money is still sat there with them. A PayPal claim is going to take at least 10 days, did everyone else just get a refund straight away?

I've just escalated to a claim this morning. They cancelled my order due to a pricing error on their database. 1 week later still no refund , never answered my emails and they sent me an email yesterday telling me to close the claim and they'd refund me. I ordered 2 of them for £233.30 total so I'm nervous. Never dealt with a PayPal dispute before.

As far as I am aware they generally go in favour of the buyer, plus you have the email from grooves saying they won't send the items, it will be fine.

I guess I should escalate mine today.
Thanks for the response, I think half of me hoped that as it was still in 'processing' it may happen

They even commented on the resolution center 7 days ago saying a refund will issued shortly so I've just escalated it cause they are messing about.
Unfortunately if it's too good to be true it probably is lesson learnt, I'd rather pay more and get it from a reputable company

No refund for me yet neither - I'm not especially worried since I'll just log a paypal dispute if they havent refunded by midweek

Anyone know where I can get a copy of Zelda:OoT 3ds for a decent price?

So you reckon it will be sorted okay through PayPal? Cause I've never dealt witha claim before. It says I have to wait until the 13th March to they hear back from the seller.

Yeah, PayPal have to give them time to reply but I've had issues similar to this with other sites and they've always got the money back for me. It's what PayPal are there for tbh

Picked one of these up 2 weeks ago! Got a smaller white one with wooden cover plates.

loving it, not used it a whole lot since I bought a PS4 last week. Playing OOT and then MM.

I used O2 recycle for my old 3ds xl. Think it was about £38, which I didn't think was too bad

How does the new 3DS vary from the original?


A lot more powerful.
New exclusive "new 3DS only" games will be more common place soon.
Has an additional C-stick which is a right analog nub to move the camera around. 2 more shoulder buttons.
Much faster loading, exchangeable cover plates, super steady face tracking 3D (I never used to keep 3d on, with the new 3DS I don't turn it off).

Spec comparison:
New 3DS specs:
- ARM11 MPCore 4x @ 268MHz (one reserved for OS)
- 4x VFPv2 Co-Processor (vector processors, like SPEs in PS3)
- 256MB FCRAM
- 10MB VRAM
- Dedicated Hardware Video Decoder
- Seemingly no change to the GPU, clock rate and all

For comparison, the old 3DS specs:
- ARM11 MPCore 2x @ 268MHz (one reseved for OS)
- 2x VFPv2 Co-Processor
- 128MB FCRAM
- 6MB VRAM
- PICA200 GPU @ 268MHz
