Found 25th Feb 2015
*PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE BRAND NEW MODEL LAUNCHED THIS MONTH IN THE UK*

Not a bad price for a UK bought model, and looks like they have stock too!!

Prices are around £172 from elsewhere.

Decent price, heat added.

With the recent influx of attention the older 3ds/2d has had due to tesco's sale it's no wonder people are voting this deal cold.

I've yet to see "this model" cheaper elsewhere.

I wish people would comment when voting Cold so we can at least have a constructive basis on which to decide for ourselves if it truly is a good deal or not. I've not seen the NEW 3DS XL cheaper anywhere, so don't know why its Cold?

Yeah I don't understand it either, we're not comparing it to the Amazon France model which has gone up in price since. I think it might be people think it's the old model. Stock has gone very short recently too and I don't think people are aware of that either.

Hi,

I agree with your thoughts on cold votes, It appears that the 3ds xl is back in stock at amazon.fr @ 195 EUR. Am I looking at the right thing?

~£150 + shipping, yeah that's probably going to end up about the same price, but this is in the UK and you can get it quicker, plus it's a hot 'UK' deal

Cheapest price atm UK that I can see. I posted a Rakuten discount/points/cashback deal last Friday where I bagged my new 3ds xl with MH4 for £150 quid plus Next day delivery but that went cold too.

Have some heat
It's a neat console, the C stick is surprisingly easy to use. Only gripe is the graphics are slightly worse on the larger model. Shame, with some refined graphics this would have been amazing.

sorry but only 99 quid at Tesco so cold from me

Older model.

That's not the "new 3ds" they shouldve gave it a better name to clear things up like 3ds 2.0

This is the problem

Bought 1 just there now - went for black instead of blue. Lovely. Thanks for finding this OP. Heat added!

I nearly rushed into this but from reading reviews it sounds like it could be the Australian model. Not a problem for most people as its PAL but I'd rather not.

They were just talking about getting it earlier in Australia, not that it's an Australian model, also, they share the same queen as us so it is a PAL model (as confirmed in the review)

My Monster hunter 4 ultimate 3ds xl edition is the bomb.

I got the amazon france model on that crazy pre-order price but this is a good deal voted hot

How much was the preorder price?

It was about £140

Heat from me bro, seem like many people are confusing this with the old model still...

I haven't bought a handheld since the Gameboy Advance all those years ago. Think I might have to invest in one of these. Hot!

It's just that with the [old, non-XL] 3DS going on sale at £49 this seems very expensive in comparison - more than three times the price for a slightly larger screen and a nub . It plays exactly the same games at the same speed so it's hard to justify paying more than triple for this.

Paid £155 via amazon spain and also got a dock too with that price

Nintendo, due to its bizarre naming conventions, is responsible for the cold votes on this thread. Enough said!

Wii > Wii U
Nintendo 3DS > New Nintendo 3DS

Is the New 3DS XL available in red yet? Whenever I Google 'New 3DS XL red'... well, you can guess what happens. The results aren't helpful.

This just confuses people even more.

It's more like Nintendo DS to Nintendo DSi.

Slightly better screens, slightly better processor, more ram. A handful (1 at the moment) of exclusive games.

It is not a typical generational jump like Wii to Wii U and it isn't being supported by Nintendo like that and doesn't have a launch lineup of titles.

Got one from Simply Games/Rakuten on release - had a voucher and cash back from TopCashBack - the metallic blue is nice but is a fingerprint magnet - preferred the duller old xl for that reason - but the NEW model is SO much better - can play with the 3D switched all the way up and it is almost PERFECT - no more blurring with the slightest hand or head movement - worth it for the built-in circle pad pro controls too - the nub could be a bit bigger but the new keys/controls don't interfere or make it less comfortable to hold. Good battery life, brought the charging cradle for £10 from amazon which is great too. Finally got round to playing the Legend of Zelda 3DS which is an amazing game - then Majoras Mask once I'm finished. Simply Games/Rakuten are great and would recommend especially as they have done a few deals over the months - plus you get points toward money off your next order - just use them when they have vouchers/codes or they can be expensive (got a PS4 before xmas for a bargain price from Shop.to)

those voting cold are doing so because they think they got good deal at 59 pound and don't think paying an extra hundred is justified but for me the improvements mentioned and reviews on the newer models are a deal breaker to me

It almost reminds me of Apple's branding of the 3rd generation iPad as 'the new iPad'. Notice that it was promptly dropped for the next year

heat added, in two minds too get this or a wii u

It's more like £155 when you factor in postage fees.

i think we just have too keep wishing,i can only imagine it either disrupts any deal they have on ebay,or just like sitting on judgment.
i had a deal on here it only ever got to 80 degrees with over 150 hot votes,so naturally my thinking is at least 120 voted cold.the deal was obviously contentsious to some,but i will never know.
