Might be worth noting you have to buy one of 15 games to get the Mario free game.

PC world will price match this and beat by 10% of the difference. (About £3 saving). I did this yesterday.

Maybe add the requirement to buy one of the £30+ games into the title?
I bought this yesterday! Very happy! Well until the battery ran out and realised none of my chargers would charge it! It's find if you have a DSi or 3DS, as their chargers will work, otherwise you need to roll down to Game!

My kids got one each for Christmas. Can I get them a free game? They got Harvest Moon and Lego Marvel.

Hasn't someone just posted an offer like this, £109 @ Curry's instore? That's quite a bit cheaper

sign up as a new customer with tesco and you can get it for £125 using a £10 new customer discount code

The £109 was store-specific. No way that'll be national imho. £125 is still damn good considering the far-inferior 2DS is £99.

Afraid not by the looks of it, the 15 games are mentioned here hotukdeals.com/dea…874

I can't see either of those two on the list.

Personally I would happily risk that £3 for the extra year guarantee that John Lewis provide.

Best games console of this era.

lol, perhaps for 8 year olds

I paid £125 for mine in an Amazon sale and that's only 1 year guarantee. Think yours is a good deal. Heat added

I think it's the most next-gen console. When I played 3d Zelda and Mario 3d world my eyes nearly popped out.

Not like ps4 and xbone that look just a tad better than what's already out. Lol

@jayjayuk1234

Thanks for that insightful and mature comment.

Anybody who has played a fraction of titles available on this platform would disagree with you 100%. The library of games for adult hardcore gamers is incredible.

Possibly the best console Nintendo has ever produced or just behind the SNES.

Anyone know what firmware version these ship with?

You're welcome....

btw. I have a 3DS.... and i've played a fraction of the titles, so i would disagree with myself?

Console is ok, -definately helped by the fact that it's been hacked, certainly not the best console this era, ridiculous statement, people shouldn't really post opinions as facts

Some people will disagree. some will agree, that's pretty obvious....

I already have a 3DS but this is a great deal. The John Lewis warranty service is definitely worth paying an extra 10 pounds for.

Just checked JL website. It's out of stock!!!

Now that's just plain silly. Look at Killzone Shadow Fall, regardless of whether you like the gameplay, and tell me a console game on ANY platform that's technically more advanced. And it certainly won't be on a 3DS if you can.

It was said half joking, but to be honest the 3d is amazing and to get that effect on a handheld screen with no glasses seems more progress than just more polygons on the screen. PCs have been doing better graphics than PS4 for years and we are meant to be calling these consoles next-gen? Hardly

We've not even begun to see what the new consoles can do but PCs will always have the upper hand as long as you can swap out for a stupidly expensive GPU and don't have to let anything older play the latest games. And you said next gen *console* so.. but either way dude, I've just got a 3DS myself so let's enjoy what Nintendo's best handheld yet has to offer together

Yeah, the consoles will never keep up with a top PC but are a cheaper option. They will never max out anti aliasing and other power demanding tasks that a PC can do. Just comparing Battlefield 4 shows the Xbone and PS4 running at a lower resolution with less anti aliasing. This is worrying when the console has to last 8 years. I thought everything would run at 60fps, 1080p and full anti aliasing but no. Killzone 4 only runs at 30fps on single player which to me is not next gen. Lets enjoy our 3ds mate and what is better than playing Mario Kart and Zelda in 3d?

The launch games are in no way indicative of what the consoles are capable of - give it *at least* a year before we can really start to see what they're capable of!

They will improve but the Graphic card is still 3x less powerful than pc's top card Nvidia's Titan. So as PC's continue to improve their cards the PS4 will have to make do for another 8 years.

Well I can't verify the 3x claim but let's hope console graphics have maxed out enough that the extra effects on PC don't matter enough, as long as new worlds and AI is possible that we couldn't have in the previous generation on ether platforms. And maybe we'll Street Pass on our 3DS' sometime!

Technically more advanced doesn't mean a thing when innovation comes into the mix. There are so many great games on 3DS, it is awesome that you can play such great games in the palm of your hand. I own a PS4 and Xbox One and I can still say the 3DS is miles ahead of any console of today's day. At the end of the day it's all about the games.

The 3DS has a couple of years on the latest home consoles so it's a ridiculous comparison. Otherwise, I've said everything that needs saying above. Enjoy your tech!
