I prefer this shop over Game, nearly 100% recommended for release day, which is specified for December 7th, it comes with no AC Adapter. £4.37/£6.56/£8.74 ShopTo credit for Bronze/Silver/Gold members, and over £5 cheaper than Game! ShopTo never had a problem with!

TCB/QuidCo available (Not 100% about QuidCo)

Does anyone else think the artwork on this console looks a little off? It's more like a Pichu than a Pikachu for some reason.

Although to be fair..:

Care to share? My experience has been amazing, what has happened with you?

Never had a problem with ShopTo, excellent service every time

Went out of stock as I was looking for something else to buy with it. Seriously **** off!

Well what a weird site. Seems that when I pressed pre-order (twice) it has physically pre-ordered (twice) and not actually sent it to the basket.

Not so **** off any more :-)

preordered for the heck of it.

Seriously want this but I've sold my 3DS so I can buy a US one. I need my Atlus games and Nintendo's dumb decision to impose a region lock on consoles/games won't allow me to import and play Atlus games on my UK 3DS

Where are the white 3dsxl per orders??

i feel the same lame (lol it rhymes), i want to play some games that's only out in the US atm but i just bought a JPN 3ds to play some of their exclusives so too poor to get a 3rd 3ds lol>.>

What Japanese games have you picked up? I wouldn't mind trying senran kagura for a laugh but it's coming to the Vita next year which is region free. There is also Guild 01 but they're all coming to the UK on the 3ds store and the main game I'd want to play in that collection is pretty text heavy so useless on Japanese. I guess there is also Bravely Default but once again it's a text heavy JRPG

How do you get Pikachu onto a bus?

I bought a couple of those but they ended up not selling for much - maybe in 10 years time...

Exactly they don't sell for much. Even sealed. Used ones go on bids for about £160 if they include lots of games. New ones may well be up for say £300-400 buy it nows sealed but that doesn't mean they are selling

I think a better investment would be mint sealed copies of the games, Wind Waker/Twilight Princess for GameCube and earlier etc., if you can get your hands on them.

On the actual product, the cameras make Pikachu look like he has big black nipples X) It's funny they've done damage control on the picture on the front of the box

Read my post on dragons Dogma.

From my experience first time buyer these people are clowns

I'm really upset that it doesn't look like pikachu

I preordered straight away from GAME. Ordered 2 from them and going to kep one sealed. Thought it would be a decent investment!

Oh dear, I'm 21 years old - I should be able to resist things like this now!

But I can't! X)

actually made me LOL in the office.

Strangest ordering / payment system I've ever seen on a website. Registed a card (as required) and then one click on the pre-order and it seems it's ordered straight away - no confirmation or basket stage. I wasn't even aware and accidentally ordered two. Really don't like this type of ordering system.

Rather than flood this thread to detract from the deal, may I point you to a comment I made back in September 2009?

[ hotukdeals.com/mis…420 ]

Would have bought if the design wasn't so ugly! That's just my opinion though, Shame because I was looking for a DS to play pokemon on!

But limited edition. I can't wait to show mine off at conventions and stuff.
Might try and get the second one I ordered signed by Matsuda..

Just bought Project X Zone since it probably won't come out in the EU, also bought SD gundam G gen, and thinking of getting bravely default after completing these two games i can't read Japanese but these games still look playable even without understanding the storyline

same thing happened to me! Did you get your money back on one? when i went to cancel i was told i wouldn't be given a refund, only store credit **** off!

This really needs a second circle pad

I not 100% sure, but admit I'm a bit concerned about just getting store credit! Can they actually do this?!

Oh yeah, I forgot about Project X Zone. Is it just Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier but with Capcom, Namco and Sega characters?

Listen if you pay NOW and cancel they will refund you STORE CREDIT. Don't cancel, receive it and send it back, you'll get your money back.

yeah, it's basically the same as SRT, but it's a strategy-RPG with loads of characters from those 3 companies. Look it up on youtube;)

This really needs a second circle pad

They said from launch like their previous 3DS their 3DS XL will also have an extra circle pad accessory released later on called circle pad pro. If you can wait you can get one but with the limited amount of games that use this extra pad and due to the size it adds to the console i wouldn't bother unless you can get one cheap.

I wont be buying one but it looks very cute,I prefer the look of the Mario ones from the Nintendo competition at christmas :-)
Voted hot as it would be a fab gift.

From Serebii.net
"For those of you in Japan, a new Pokémon themed 3DS LL has been announced. This new 3DS LL is due for release in the Pokémon Centres across Japan. Unlike the Pikachu one, ability to get this 3DS LL is done via a lottery, with applications beginning in November 3rd until November 26th. It is then available to purchase from December 15th until January 14th if successful and will cost 18,900¥. Like all 3DS systems, it's region locked. We'll provide further details should this special console make it outside of Japan."

Looks nice but I still prefer Pikachu (hence my name haha). But this one should be rarer because of the lottery. I remember Pikachu ds lite was a lottery and now its worth over £300 (authentic ones, not copies made in HK).
