Nintendo 3ds £49.99 in store Asda

£49.99Asda Deals

Found 23rd Sep 2015
Was in my local Asda this afternoon (Gosforth, Newcastle) looking for the £200 PS4. None left but I did notice at the back of the games counter they had about 6 boxed Nintendo 3ds' in white being sold for £49.99.

The lady behind the counter said something about a "toxic sale"??? Whatever that means.

Not sure if national or store specific but if you are after a 3ds get yourself to asda gosforth. Bargain.

toxic sale is where they try and clear assets that have dropped in value to below initial investment and that will result in losses if sold

100 for first gen 3ds is terrible. 2nd gen xl is 70 in some asdas!
We went to two of our local stores looking for the ps4 deal today as well and when we asked about the deal the assistant told us that every store got sent two each to clear out quickly so I guess this is what they do in a toxic sale but their 3rd were over £100 because we looked. Never mind but good luck to all those finding these great deals
You would think same company same price

scan it to see how much it actually is when it goes through the till


Foe those who are saying that the "2nd gen" and "new" 3ds XL is £70 in some ASDA's......no, it's not, it's the 1st gen original 3ds XL that is on sale there.
When scanned through the till it came to £69.99
Mine came with a free game!
I don't rate it though, all you seem to do is chase things.

nope, there different machines. lol.

yes obviously they are different - hence saying they are basically the same other than size
'other than' means not everything the same ie different
using the term 'generation' is only useful if talking about some significant advance, not going 3ds to 3ds xl

also as i said, even if it were 2nd generation your usage of xl implied that its the 2nd generation of 3ds xl which are they new ones... and which they are not
"2nd gen" in this context to me means the New 3ds.

As has been said, the word generation implies something different, a step in quality, something "New"......not just an optional upgrade in size of the same hardware.
barcode?
there are 2 in stock at AsmSDA robroyston, but they're 95 quid
I mean ASDA Robroyston

Never in all my years after leaving college did I think I'd come to HotUkDeals and learn what a 'toxic sale' is. GeigerPAW you've enlightened me

stop banging on about it being a different generation ffs
man up and shut up
Didn't have anything in the Chapeltown 2 days ago, checked for pokemon, blueray player etc, no good deals on there
Went all the way down to my local Asda, thinking if they're sold out then that's just some bad luck... nope, they don't even sell any nintendo, at all. That's disappointing in so many ways. And stopping at my local CEX and GAME while I was out there just made me more upset, if anything.
