    Yes I posting this here, I think it is really important as alot of people are complaining about the price.

    I've done my bit, now its up to the people if they want to go for it.

    That seems quite a bit cheaper than all the others. But they might only take a few preorders at first for this price (the last line of the quote made me think so).

    just to let everyone know i am having awful trouble with this company, bought something, didnt work, trying to get an exchange.
    still waiting for my item apparently its been sent out, they took 3 weeks to respond to my original email enquiring about it, then a further 3 weeks to confirm it was a faulty product, that was over a week ago and still waiting for a new item.
    absolutely not a company i would ever deal with again.

    obviously up to whoever if they want to use them or not, just telling you my experience with them.

    Thanks for the headsup inde. Always good to read people's feedback from these online shops. Your info "could" save potentials buyers alot of ballache. I thought the price was too good to be true. Asda have just put a tenner on their 3DS+game bundle, bringing it upto £229.97. I'm going to wait on and see if anyone will match the price with a better game.

    It's farcical that the best we can manage, even when the retailer is massively undercutting everyone else is still $60 USD more than the equivalent US price. (£195=$310)

    I almost thought, wow that's a bargain before i came to my senses.....i refuse to be ripped off just because of where i live.

    i think nintendo's aim was to put the price somewhere near $300 except for the US... its a good strategy
    maybe the holidays might shave some dollars off (i think in AUS its in june correct?)

    Is "registering your interest" the same thing as preordering? I did that yesterday.

    As of right now Euroland has not been given the exact details of what games will launch with the system. The US has 12 titles confirmed.

    I'm hoping for zelda,pilotwings,SSF4 and steeldiver on day one.
