This bundle is available in black as well.

Cheers mate, they just added those it was only the one offer originally. That made my mind up I was umming and arring because I wanted the black one. Lovely

tried one of these yesterday, 3d effect is a bit lame, for 200 quid buy an android phone and download games for free.
think these still use a resistive screen, how rubbish can you get, and all nintendo games are a pain, they look as if designed for a 5 year old

If you don't like Nintendo games why bother trying the 3DS and write in this post, most people buy Nintendo console because they like nintendo's own games.

Hot

I'm not sold on this 3D stuff, so many reports about headaches, sore eyes etc and the effect itself isn't great, bit like the LG Optimus 3D phone that has a slider on it so you can turn the 3D down or off now the only reason you'd need that is if the 3D was giving you grief, same with 3D films I couldn't sit down in front of the TV all day watching 3D films like I could say blu rays/DVD's.

I think it will take some time for them to perfect this kind of thing and it may just be fad for handhelds I don't know the jury is out on this one.

Yeah cause games on the android market will match the quality of games on the 3DS. Get real dude! I am not talking about graphics either. I mean library of games, do you honestly believe that games on android will match 3DS library. Do you think developers on Android will make anything near the depth and quality of a Zelda, Mario, SFIV, Castlevania, Kingdom Hearts etc. I like some mobile games but they are not matching dedicated handhelds yet. Plus I want buttons and a proper D-Pad and control pad/stick. I am not even bothered about 3D games just like 3DTV does not interest me. I just want full on proper games and at the moment mobile phones are not doing it in a big enough way.

The DS library of games was the best around so if 3DS matches that then nintendo have a gaming winner no doubt.

Prepare yourself for disappointment.. They will NOT honour this deal.. Because I want mine on release and I wanted to pre-order, I figured that rather wait until IWOOT cancel and then it would be too late to pre-order, I would just ask them.. And they cancelled my order right away, saying that the deal was invalid.

You might be lucky, but I very much doubt it.

Jon

Splinter cell and rayman were they not the exact same games released with the old ds ??

lumsdot

Yep. Cos thats all that matters about a game isn't it .... as long as the graphics are good, who cares about playability eh!

Do HMV send consoles with a courier or by royal mail?

I bought mine five years ago for 3 pounds, so this is cold. And I like Xbox shooters, so this is cold. And I have a motorola mobile phone with that snake game, so this is cold.

Thas tripple cold lol1!!!!11!! kthxbai

Is this Instore and online?

Hmm..Ubisoft games. Not sure they are worth the extra £13.

You're probably better off putting that cash towards something that should be half decent like Streetfighter/Pilotwings/Nintendogs+Cats. Although I suppose that might have an ok trade in value (provided you trade quickly. I expect most of the Ubi titles to hit the bargain bin fast).

Same question.

Just had a go on one of these in game at Middlesbrough Rumor is pilotwings has the best 3D effect. Nintendodogs looked awesome surprised at the graphics IMO looks better than the wii
Streetfighter 4 looks gr8 aswell just wish I could have had a play on pilotwings. Nintendodogs seems to be the toprated game tho averaging bout 90-93%

I'm tempted by Nintendogs+ cats (as it's supposed to use the 3D to great effect)..but it does get a chore having to remember to keep taking them for walks/feed them (if I wanted that hassle I'd get a real dog).

I may wait for "Pet Zombies in 3D" which is due later this year (yes..it is a real game)...where you have to remember to feed them brains and the like.X)

..although I doubt the quality will be as high as Nintendogs.

Its a toy, get real. If you like 3D use ya eyzes...

i preordered this in sainsburys today, with my mums discount card it seems like a good price

You see nintendo's advice on the console - you should stop playing after 15 minutes on the 3d setting for 15 mins break for your eyes - aha ha ha next virtual boy people are gonna start having fits and they will get sued

Games I have seen said every 30 minutes.
It's more to do with covering their asses from bogus lawsuits.

Some 360 /PS3/Wii games say you should take a 15 minute break every 30 minutes.

Most others say you should take a 15 minute break every hour...of course nobody does.

To be fair I have seen a number of reviews of both the 3DS and the new lg 3d phone where the reviewers have complained of eyestrain and headaches after modest amounts of use.

I am sure nintendo have done extensive testing, but until a product like this is launched on the general population you can't know for sure how it will affect everyone.

I can't see the price going up so I am going to hold fire until I have seen one myself and until there are some decent games released for it

HMV's web and store prices rarely match, but web is not always the cheapest!

sure some resistive screens on some cheap *phones* are bad... but the DS resistive screen is better than if it had a capacitive screen by miles. Faster and you can use a stylus which is more accurate which is essential. Try playing a game with your fat sausage fingers and see how far that gets you until you wish you had your stylus control back!

when you put your face in a certain area in front of the screen, the picture seems to come out or go into the screen like when you watched Avatar in the cinema
