Find the best price for the 3DS here!
That's right, people, the 3DS is out, dizzy children are falling over in the streets after ten minutes of Pilotwings and Nintendo's star is seemingly once again in the ascendancy. Jon's tackled the launch line up already, but you might be wondering where to go to get your hardware fix the cheapest. Well here's a little roundup of some of the best prices for the 3DS so far...
Best Price 3DS: Core Console
Price Minister/Gzoop: £174.99 (when you use 3DS40 code)
If you didn't manage to get down to Tesco (who were running this offer instore last night if you purchased a game too) this is a good place to start. Don't worry if you don't see the promo code box initially, you have to sign in first and jump through 1 or 2 screens. I can't personally vouch for Price Minister or Gzoop as I've never used them before
Also worthy of note...
Straightforward and simple, could be a way forward if you're a regular Amazonian and you want to bide your time a bit when it comes to game choice. That said, Tesco's weekend offer below is extremely inviting.
Best Price 3DS: Bundles
Amazon: 3DS Console + Free Screen Protector + Game = £207 (+£5 for a carry case)
It's worth noting for Amazon's bundle that the game list is very limited and no, Street Fighter IV 3D is not on there. Compared to buying them separately onsite, you're saving yourself around £15.
GAME: 3DS Console + Super Monkey Ball 3D = £204.99
A couple of quid cheaper than Amazon, but then again you don't get the screen protectors. You do, however, get sweet reward points, although be prepared to stick on an extra £4 if you want Rayman or Ridge Racer.
Tesco: 3DS Console £175 when bought with any game (Total = £209.90)
Tesco's list does encompass the whole launch range including Nintendogs, Star Wars and Street Fighter, but the saving is somewhat lessened by the fact that their listed prices for the games are a fiver higher than Amazon's.
Toys R Us: 3DS Console + Super Monkey Ball 3D + Rayman3D = £234.99
Worth mentioning if only for convenience's sake...only really worth it if you really want those two games specifically.
