​wouldnt touch a euro version after the trouble I had with a 3ds

Paid £219 over Xmas from Tesco for the same bundle. Most fun console in the house. While there is merit to critics arguments, it has been a worthwhile buy for me.

Pixel Electronics... You don't have Paypal in this situation so if anything goes wrong you have to call your bank. "They" don't have a phone number nor reply to emails so customer service is non-existent.

Not necessarily true. I ordered this very pack close to Christmas, and was concerned about delivery getting to me in time. I emailed Pixel and got pretty good service, Olly agreed to send me the MK8 only pack which he could guarantee a Christmas delivery for, then sent me on the Splatoon game afterwards.

I know others have reported bad/non-existent customer service, but for me it was pretty good. YMMV.

I bought a new 3DS XL from amazon France,zero difference with UK.even box text is identical.and obviously chargers are not included in the box so no problem there either.
I don't know what problem you had with your "euro version" 3DS because apparently there is no euroversion 3DS,all same.
Wii U though is a different story.

Cold deal:
1-seller has some bad reputation.
2-console is not UK model so need plug adapter + lower resale value here
3-Bundled games are digital/pre installed so no chance of selling trading them
4-this console will be replaced this year,paying over £200 for it at this time is just not logical,these will be on sale for cheap eveywhere when the successor is launched (this year).

Please just pay a little more from Tesco

Two years ago I got a Wii U with 2 premium games for £199.99. How on earth has the price not dropped considerably given how few they have sold?

I don't believe I or anyone else for that matter has stated Pixel is a scammer? It comes down to bad customer service really. There have been plenty bad reviews. Nothing wrong with giving people the basic information and letting them do their own online research before buying and deciding for themselves.

Bought an N3DS XL and it came opened.

I could just return the product, get e refund and wait for another code, but as it is an xmas present, that would take too long. I don't like playing games to get discounts and will probably never use your shop again!

Good prices, customer service not so great. £400 iPad sent out, dispatch … Good prices, customer service not so great. £400 iPad sent out, dispatch was delayed, and when I emailed, was told it was due for dispatch and would be delivered the next day. Disappointing that no tracking information available, especially for an expensive purchase. Package arrived a day later than I was told, but was left on my neighbours doorstep in plain sight and in the **** rain. When this company produced the tracking information it just says delivered, not who or where to! More care needs to be taken, but that may be more the delivery company, but sure as hell would make me question using this company again!

No message to inform us!! Finally arrived 14 days after ordered. My 9 year old daughter had saved up to pay for it. At 9 yrs 2 weeks in a lifetime to wait for it to arrive. Not even an accessory or pre owned game as compensation to her. Very poor service and highlighted to Rakuten and after a week still waiting for their comment!!!!

So they won't refund me. Happy to take your money. Will never be ordering from you again. Don't know how to get my refund. Avoid this seller

A 3 pin adapter was offered after I complained but when I enquired if the adapter would be 'CE' compliant I received no response and no adapter.

Plus, let's not forget the reviews on Trust Pilot too.

Pixel Electronics is a mixed-bag so anyone willing to take the risk has to acknowledge if something goes wrong they have to get their money back through their bank because the customer service is **** poor to non-existent, or if lucky, he actually replies back.

Can't understand how Royal Mail can visit our offices on a daily basis and yet Parcelforce can't locate us! Very poor and no ability to track the order on Rakuten website without emailing the retailer, who did respond with a tracking number fairly promptly.

I ordered a Wii U from this seller before xmas (for my nephew), I emailed the seller to ask that he please include the UK adaptors in my order (as mentioned on the item info). I got a nice reply back saying he would be sure to do this. Wii U arrived on time and did include both of the adaptors. The console works fine and we were very happy with the price and service.

It's the price people are willing to pay for a fun, family console. There's no competition really so prices can remain high.

I was simply pointing out to noahsdad that someone - ie you - had implied that Pixel Electronics were 'a scammer'. Negative reviews pretty much all boil down to 'very slow delivery' so I don't understand why you keep shouting on every thread about them being scam artists? Also picking the minority of 1 star reviews from a seller that has 4.73 stars out of 5 based on 649 reviews to support your 'claim' seems a bit like you have too much time on your hands. Why don't you try being a bit more helpful occasionally rather than just bleating your stupid ill-informed opinions all over every Nintendo-related thread? Happy New Year to you anyway, all the best for 2016!

So, never receiving a refund equates to not being a scammer?

I take it the guy who never received the refund was you? If not I don't understand what your problem is. There's something strange about a guy who goes on trustpilot & 'finds useful' only negative comments about a random rakuten seller but doesn't bother explaining why (& who also doesn't seem to find positive comments useful). Ah well.

To be honest it seems the wii u popularity is rising, it may be to do with the lack of fun family friendly games on the xbox and ps4. These seem to be far more adult orientated now.
