Not sure if Flubit will work with foreign websites but worth a try, could get 10-15% off. Not in the market for one but did used to own the original 3DS and really enjoyed Super Mario 3D Land (was totally hooked!), Mario Kart & Starfox.

Bought mine from Amazon.it. Arrived in 3-4 days. Working like a charm. No complaints at all. Mine was £131. Have some heat.

I presume it had a euro plug?

The 3DS XL doesn't come with a plug in Europe.

Love Nintendo's handhelds (Always gets plenty of unique games)

Dislike Nintendo's home consoles (Always misses out on games and no achievement system compared to PS3 and 360 (IMO which I love and keeps my playing)

Dont forget you get charged by Visa for an oversea's payment!

Usually with mine (Natwest Visa) it's like 0.2% so like 60p for £150 spent.

I wouldn't blame anyone for selling their Wii U in-order to get a 3DS at the moment after this weeks' N-Direct... It basically looks like it will be one of the greatest consoles in history where the games line up it concerned.

Is the box and everything in English?

Isn't there like a region lock on these? I know for sure, if you buy one from the US then you cannot play games bought in the UK. Maybe IT and UK is fine...

Managed to get a price from Flubit for a UK one for £139, 50/50 on whether to go for it but would probably prefer that...

Fair enough. Thanks.

As someone above asked, is it region locked or will it play games from uk?

good deal.

Yes, there is, but the UK has the same lock as all European countries and Australia.

no, italian , spanish and portugese

i believe you can get a free game if you register a 3DS XL and luigis mansion on club nintendo, as a heads up to anyone

The console will allow to be set in english

I'm tempted and I need 2.

the console defaults to english as it sets up but he asked about "the box and everything

Not if you buy this one. Not available until may 3rd and the promo ends on the 30th of this month.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Nintendo definately struggles in the home console department (though there's nothing like a good Zelda/3d mario game on a home console and I'm looking forward to playing both on my Wii U) there is absolutely no beating a Nintendo handheld console!

isn't that promo america only? i'm sure it is...the free game for european XLs was before christmas and you only had to have the console to qualify.

I'm waiting for the Animal Crossing and Luigi special editions in a couple of months.

I'm looking to pick one of these up. Is this the best bet for me at the moment? I have only even owned the original DS when it very first came out so I'm not sure whether I should wait for a new bundle or something. (Like the Animal Crossing one)

Why isn't the charger included? I have no idea if that's just standard or not! Poor if it is!

Yes, it's North America only. NOE emailed me to confirm this.

The charger isn't included with the 3DS XL outside of America because Nintendo assume many people who buy the 3DS XL would have it since it came with the DSi, DSi XL and the 3DS...

This deals pretty good if you don't mind the colour and if you get the bundle the game will be on the system, not a physical copy. That can be a good or a bad thing.... mostly good for a game like Animal Crossing.

I have just seen the 3ds xl for £99.99!!! sounds too good to be true!! never heard of them before

I wouldn't go near them with a six foot pole. Their website uses a lot of generic content and the layout isn't even right.

Plus they claim that the 3DS XL comes with a UK charger, which it doesn't unless they've added one in, which makes the 99 pounds price seem even more unlikely.

Oh, and it costs 20p a minute to call them.

And their contact address shows them as being on the 7th floor of a building on oxford street in swansea. at a cursory glance, going by postcode, i can't find a bulding with seven floors on that street.

There's some chat about the addresses used here: phonenotes.org/084…540
Though I can't say whether or not they are the same company under a different name.

In short, my spider senses say SCAM.

Yes this website is completely fake.

Try going to the checkout page, all the tabs turn to a single flat image with no links on them.

Along with bad jpg compression, and many image links that do nothing.

Stay away.

Top deal this one, though I did get an old 3D for the little un back in January at Morrisons if I remember correctly!

Banned

If it seems to good to be true it usually is....

Beware.

available 3rd may

Good deal! But will there be any extra charges like shipping to the UK and customs charges?
