Nintendo 3DS XL with 4 GB card - £169.97 @ Gamestop (3 Colours)

Found 25th Jun 2012
Cheapest by £10 beating Amazon / shopto etc

The Nintendo 3DS XL is a new version of Nintendo 3DS with 90 % larger screens. The new system will create even more immersive entertainment experiences for users, delivering a wealth of games and video content that can be enjoyed on the go.

The new system's battery life outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS, and it comes bundled with a 4 GB SD card.

Even with the addition of the bigger screen, Nintendo's aim was to still make the system available at a reasonable purchase price. Because of this, and because so many fans already own a previous handheld, an AC adapter will not be included

Good spot. Not sure whether to order yet though as hopefully other places will go cheaper. Possibly supermarkets.

ASDA will almost certainly have the best offer by miles.
It comes with an AC adapter here. It's just in Japan where no AC adapter isn't included.
Not adding the second thumb stick seems mad. Suppose they don't want to annoy original 3ds owners but does this mean they are going to release a circle pad xl? that would look ridiculous but if not does that mean they are giving up on it and wont be supporting the 2nd thumb stick any more?
they said the small screen version 3ds gave people headaches....so they make the screen even bigger? wtf !

It says in the ad on the site that there is no AC adapter.
These jokers have cancelled every order I've ever made with them. Note that they take money when you order, well before it's dispatched.

All 3DS XL's come with a 4GB SD card. So it's a bit misleading how they have it advertised.

There is definitely no AC adapter in the box within the EU.

There is no AC Adaptor included here either. Look at Amazon's product page as they have the boxshot which says "AC Adaptor not included."

Amazon sell the Adaptor for £6.99 and the Cradle + Adaptor for £19.99.

Hardly misleading - I am stating what is included as some may think you just get the console.

Also OP states no AC adapter is included

Cold they are milking the 3ds console for more money. Next it will be the 3ds lite etc. I think what they need to do is make a new 3ds console with a second thumbstick or concentrate on making another handheld console, which won't need lots of different versions.

Sorry, I didn't mean for it to come across like I was moaning at you. It's more with GameStop advertising it like it's something they're offering exclusively.

And the AC comment is aimed at one of the earlier comments.
This article at Kotaku claims the 3DS XL will launch with an AC adapter in North America. Since no EU details have been annouced yet, I assume that we'll be seeing the same thing as the US.

Nope. The EU will not be getting an adapter, along with Japan.

The US only get an adapter due to a special request afaik.
Still makes me queasy... I wonder how much more so with a bigger screen!

How is it out of date? The rivals haven't caught them yet...

Always funny when people slate Nintendo. Guess you thought the Wii would be crap too?
To be fair, if he did - he wasn't wrong.
Twice as damaging to your eyes .. Worse than the original !

Lol woo
I'm happy with my current 3DS, although I'd love to see what the XL is like in person.

Also, love the photo!
Rather get a Vita at that price, at least it comes with a charger!

Rarely does mainstream success equate to quality, sadly.

3DS is really fun & the larger screens are a must have specially the 3D one but i will wait for prices to come down or for the likes of Gamestation to announce a Trade in offer for 3DS for 3DS XL + cash.

Yeah, it only outsold the PS3 and 360 several times over.
Cold from me for two reasons:
1) It looks far too big from the pic on the right side - will not fit into my rugsack
2) Don't like white - prefer black or blue

What's a 'rugsack'? Is it simply a sack for rugs?

But the memory cards require you to re-mortgage your static caravan. So it's swings and roundabouts.

4GB mem card is around £10-12 these days. Vita is also floating around the £180 mark. Game prices are pretty much the same for both consoles. Considering the resolution for the 3DS is already quite low, I just don't see how this will make any of the games look better. If anything it will just highlight the jaggies more. It's also priced poorly. If I didn't already own a Vita and I was weighing up my options right now, I'd still a choose a Vita. Pretty much the same price and IMO better games.

Good deal 8). I understand Nintendo's logic behind not including an AC adaptor; I can't see there being many people with pre DS lite consoles or new customers looking to buy the 3DS XL, still a little bit cheeky though.
I won't be upgrading myself though, I can only just about fit my 3DS in a pocket and I'd rather save up for the wii u.
