Not at all, they're better than most supermarket snaps that are posted on here!

Great price with a high-value game included. Shame the 2DS isn't included in the Mario 3D Land promotion.

Can't find the info anywhere so I'll ask here:

How does the Pokemon game in this bundle come?

1) Already preinstalled to the console
2) Comes as a dl code in the box (Seems most likely based on previous bundles)
3) Contains physical game

Cheers

the box itself shows a copy of the game in the case + the 2ds so I'm assuming it's a physical retail copy

Is this the same as the ds xl my daughter already has or is it a upgrade from it ?
Just asking because i might buy this for her xmas prezzy and i dont know anything about these

its like a 3DS without the 3D (to make it cheaper) - but it will run all the latest games which your DSI will not. It will play 3ds games in 2d, and still play all the old DS games that she has for her DSi

A definite upgrade from the DSi (although the screens are smaller than a DSiXL...)

the only caution would be that 3DS often comes down near the £100 mark - but not with a free game as new or good as Pokemon Y...

Does she have a 3DS XL or just a DS XL?

If she has the DS XL then this is a completely new console and will play all the new games coming out that the DS XL just won't be able to.

If it is a 3DS XL then she doesn't need this.

Thanks guys i think i will get this for her ;D

It depends if you mean your daughter has a DSi XL, or a 3DS XL. The naming scheme can be confusing.

The DS/DSi series (consisting of the original DS, DS Lite, DSi and DSi XL) plays original Nintendo DS games, but won't play 3DS games. There are minor differences between all these consoles, but you can think of them as being four different versions of the same basic device, with the major improvements being things like screen size and backlighting.

The 3DS series, (consisting of the 3DS and the 3DS XL) plays both DS games and Nintendo 3DS games - it's the follow-up console to the DS, in the same way that the Playstation 2 was the follow-up to the original Playstation. It's a new device with much better hardware, and can play more graphically complex games. It also has a 3D screen, like a 3DTV. The 3DS and 3DS XL are, again, just variations on the same basic device - the main difference is that the 3DS XL has a larger screen.

This 2DS will play both 3DS and original DS games, but it doesn't feature a 3D screen, and doesn't feature the laptop-like clamshell design that all other DSes/3DSes have. It is meant as a lower-priced device for people who want to play 3DS games, but either don't want to pay for a full-on 3DS, or don't want the 3D effect of the regular 3DS.

In summary, if your daughter owns a DSi XL, the 2DS is an upgrade. She will be able to play all her old DS games on it, plus all new 3DS games.

If your daughter owns a 3DS XL, the 2DS is a downgrade. It is the same device with some features removed. Even if she doesn't like the 3D effect of the 3DS XL, there is no point downgrading to a 2DS as the 3D can be switched off on the 3DS XL anyway. The 3DS XL is currently the "best" 3DS on the market.

Hope this helps, and hope your daughter enjoys whatever you buy her!

If anyone has bough this can you put up the item code. Phoned a few stores and they can't find this deal.

I phoned customer care line and they cant find ds at all in any stores London area,only online and just by itself. Maybe its very new but if anyone finds instore please upload location, would be most grateful:)

Bargain!

For kids that don't really care on something being fashionable then this looks like a pretty decent deal, otherwise a 3ds or 3ds xl may be appreciated more, although you then have to have a power adapter with it (unless you have one from the DSi and later i think it was).

Offer started today so careline probably wont have much info on it. If your Sainsburys has Nintendo products in it, it should have 2DS in stock

Found in Berryden Road Aberdeen. Both versions in stock a couple of hours ago but only the red one on the shelf so worth asking. Fantastic deal, thanks.

Just in case anyone is after 3DS XL and doesn't like Very (which is a lot of people), there is a white 3DS XL + Mario Kart going live at 2.15pm as a lightning deal on Amazon. Listed at £185.32 so should be a pretty decent deal price.

Only 3DSs but no 2DS's at all in Sainsburys Farlington, Portsmouth but hot if you can find one

Is it the cartridge or download code?

Cartridge

Does anyone know if its today only

ehcool

Does anyone know if its today only

no i think it will be on offer for a while they wouldnt go to all the bother of printing the sleeves etc for 1 day

Have some heat. Just had the run around getting one of these. Spoke to the customer support and they put me in touch with promotions who didnt know of this particular promotion. Rang my local branch Bolton who informed me they dont sell the 2ds. Asked to be put through to a member of staff that could check local area and got a guy on the shop floor in Bolton. He went over to the games section and confirmed they did have them on the shelves. Just picked it up . happy days, 3 or 4 left on the shelf BTW. I was told that the best chance in the Manchester area is the Heaton Park branch as this is the biggest in the North. Good Luck

cracking deal

Had 4 on shelves in York monks cross this lunchtime

Does it not annoy anyone else that they've bundled the red game with the blue 2DS and the blue game with the red 2DS >_<

Stonking price though!

Rather gutted that I just dropped £260 on two 2DS's + Pokemon + Cases direct from Nintendo the other day because absolutely nowhere else had stock. Bah!

cex are giving £27 cash for pokemon x/y at the moment...

Excellent deal. They had them in Edinburgh Cameron Toll if that helps anyone.

got the last one from our local store : )

does anybody know when this offer ends? iv tried ringing them but they are ignorant lol thanks

Picked one up today great price!!

The "Instore" bit would suggest so. Additionally, was it so hard to search their website yourself?

I ordered a Black 2DS and X for stepson from Ninty too (with free case) as that is the colour/Pokemon combo he wanted...Was gutted at first to see this but not so much now it's the 'wrong' colour for him lol
