From the pictures, this is the old version NOT the latest one with improved 'head tracking' 3D.

this is not NEW 3DS XL, please correct the description which can be misleading

The cheapest it's been no? Just wish the new 3ds was around this price.

This will get very hot though

Awesome price. As someone with a New 3DS XL, the extra features aren't worth the money.

I'm in the same boat, If I was in to amiibos the new 3DS XL would be worth it. As I'm not the old 3DS XL is perfect and at a great price.

Just tried adding the two games in the hope that the bundle has also been reduced.

It's still £99.

Depends on what games you play.
As a hardcore Monster Hunter player i much prefer the C button then having the heavy circle pad pro attached

You need to click the see lightning deal bit on the Amazon Product Page. It is in the top right hand corner. The lightning deals are listed separately from their normal stock. Click on that link and it will show it as £85.....for the next couple of hours at least.

This is a deal? O.o I'll sell you a brand new one for less than that.

Lightning deal has now ended... for an extra £15 you can get the console and 2 games though...

Lightning Deal is back on for those interested in the Blue console

is the £99 non lightning price a better deal because it includes 2 games?

Depends really, are you bothered about colour? I'm not so I got the £99 one with the 2 games, I don't fancy the golf one but I'll get £8 from CEX. Some kids may want the blue if you're getting for your kids or friends/family buts its personally preference really

People are not understanding or realising the improvements with each new model advancement of 3DS. So the new 3DS XL is more than just something that reads Amiibo's without the requirement of add on equipment. The battery chemistry is superior. So even from standard 3DS to 3DSXL, a full charge mean double the playing time on the XL. With the 2nd Generation 3DS XL (the recently released one) it adds on another couple of hours on top of that.

Fair enough if people want to buy old technology, but you have to recognise the new 3DS XL is a better machine.

Pay the extra £15 for this with 2 mario games....

Ah never knew that, thought it was only the grey one. I'm not overly fussed, basic colour for a couple hours play for anyone in the house. I only bought one because I used to love playing Mario

Just a note of warning to those buying thinking there's not much difference to the consoles - you can't play some games like Xenoblade Chronicles unless you have the NEW 3DS.

Decent deal for the old 3DS XL but since most people will eventually want to upgrade to the new 3DS XL which has improved battery life, much improved 3D, far quicker load times and sometime soon a bunch of games that can't be played on older models, it is far and away forking out a bit extra for the new model.

Definitely worth getting the xl version, I got the old standard size screen and it is too small for games like mh3 imo.

Agree, when my kid meets up with his cousins at family gatherings, they always want to use his 3DS XL, its basically a better playing/viewing experience for just about any game IMO.

Misleading and some may purchase the wrong item. Op maybe edit that bit out?

Update: I've added some info to the description.

​Please elaborate. I'm interested on your take on this. I have a 3DS XL, no interest in those plastic toy things and there aren't enough games that take advantage of the "NEW" 3DS XL to warrant buying a new handheld (considering if rumours are true the 3DS line will be done with when the NX is revealed).

Received mine today. Just to note; there's no charger in the box and it's required to use the console. £9.99 from Game etc.

Yeah, I found that out today, went to Argos and got one for £6.99 so I could use it in the car too as its detachable from the plug with USB
