Codes won't work for everyone. I tried them but belong to another customer. Always worth a try

wait for the "new 3ds" next year, don't waste your money on clearance stock.

The new one is probably going to be around £100 more expensive then this! Logically, you would be wasting your money buying that for essentially the same thing..

Thanks OP! Been waiting for a bit of a proce drop on the xl. Just purchased 2 for my boys for Christmas

virtually the same but with some buttons moved around a bit and the xyab buttons are now coloured like on the old snes pads and the best bit is it will have an extra circle pad on the right so no need to buy the accessorie. May also have improved battery.

And more powerful processor which some future games may requires, although realistically that will prob be 2 or 3 games at most.. Considering the huge library of games already available I don't see any reason to wait, unless you are in no rush and have deep pockets..

damn damn damn, just paid £180 from Argos!

I have the wrtp code so it's not limited to just one. Must be block sent. I just ordered the red one and then an hour later the white one comes back in stock - not impressed.

I would have. If my son hadn't asked for one for Christmas.

Any other codes before I order one for my nephew wrtp one says linked to another account and the second one says only valid on first order made on account. Still a good deal though thanks very much

I don't think the "New 3DS" will be priced anywhere near 250 lol
Maybe 199 with the Xenoblade Chronicles port.

did you not get the 3 animal crossing games as well and then sell? I got £20 each for 2 games therefore bringing the price down to £140 for a 3ds xl + 1 game. Best deal so far I think.

Thank you so much, so glad I've held out. Just ordered one and my friend works at tesco so ended up getting it with 20% discount. Just a small question, is the console battery powered then, as it says a adaptor doesn't come with it ?

I would wait closer to christmas.

Last year Argos and Amazon both had deals.

Amazon had this pack but with Mario Kart 7 (however Nintendo were giving away digital 3D lands) for £124.99 and Argos had a deal with games and voucher where the base cost of the handheld worked out at £95.

If you are christmas shopping there will be deals in November.

I would also look for a deal with the new Ruby/Sapphire pokemon game or Smash Bros as they can be redeemed with the console for a whole game from this promotion.

Fantastic deal, didn't know I could click & collect for free from my local tesco express. Delighted its in stock, been watching price on these for a while. Thanks for posting

You could, y'know, not just give your son what he asks for. Big ask, I know.

Amazon flash sales, for example, could make it much cheaper, so personally I'd wait if you're wanting these for Christmas presents and not immediate use. Good plan?

At that price, I'd wait for the New 3DS.

In a supposedly very green move by Nintendo, They have not included Chargers assuming that most people allready have compatible ones from the previous Nintendo console, they owned and have now (Nintendo hopes) binned to go off to landfill, rather than sell it without a charger a shrewd if not very green move at all, Chargers can be bought separately now making Ninty lots more money!

One present sorted. Thabks

New 3DS is considerably faster, and will have exclusives that can't run on current 3DS's. Plus the 3D effect is much improved; in that it follows your face, rather than requiring on you being in the sweet spot.

those coloured buttons are an homage to the Super Nintendo. instant nerd points from this 32 year old.

Too bad the XL version of the New 3ds doesn't have the same full coloured buttons - it is only the button symbols which are coloured. Also the XL version doesn't support customisable case covers unlike the regular version.

As for this deal, another reason it is hot could be because the console should come with a firmware under 4.5 for those who need it.

Nintendo actually reduced the rrp of the official charger when they annonce that the xl will not have it included as standard.
This also made the box a lot smaller than the standard 3ds box meaning they could ship double the amount of 3ds xl consoles in the same container.

Only the new 3ds has the coloured buttons, the XL model doesn't have the coloured buttons. You can import it and get it at the end of November from Australia.

Yes you just use a UK 3ds plug/charger, the site I got mine from imports it and sells it from the UK so no worries about postage and import tax etc,

365games.co.uk/3ds…ack

Just ordered mine as don't want to disappoint my little boy on Christmas morning. Feel like it's too much of a risk waiting for better offers, I'd rather have peace of mind. I got an extra £10 off using code TDX-HTRW so I'm happy paying £139.99. Thanks OP.

Ordered too, thanks.

late corby click and collect

Ordered good deal. thanks op. heat added.

Just ordered for my daughter. Used the code from notty786 to bring it down. Thanks for the post and the code.

Does anyone know what firmware comes on this if you have had one delivered already?

huge

BACK IN STOCK just ordered this in white. Super pleased as it's £30/£40 dearer everywhere else. Used clubcard boost as well so was £103!
