    Tesco are to reduce the price of their 3DS preorders from tomorrow, hopefully other companies may have to price match to keep up. Tesco have a price promise too so anyone who has already placed their order at a previous higher price will get it at £179.
    Add a game to your basket for a £10 when you enter promo code.

    I don`t think the deal is live yet but should be by morning.


    EDIT: Yet again, Tesco have given an incorrect price and changed it .When I posted this the ad said £179, The price is actually £197. Rip off Britain! Please close this thread.

    OH WOW

    So, that'd be 289 USD... and 17 USD a game? Still more than what I'll be paying. Too bad [​IMG]

    Still, good deal for Europe, I guess

    Yeah, we pay more for everything over here, you should see our fuel prices. I think this price works out slightly better than the Japanese price, despite paying 20% tax and being shipped halfway round the world. This UK price is about £20 better than the previous price so is a sign hopefully of better deals for UK consumers.

    $298 i assume would have been that dick smith online special?

    i'm getting mine this cheap because i work at dickies [​IMG]
    for those wondering, we buy them in at $321 so them selling me them at that price (i say them because i hooked my brother up with one at the same price as well) is actually losing them money [​IMG]

    GO TO AMERICA AND BE A CHEAPER GAMER.
    250 USD for the console, 40 for the game. OH YEAH.

    Also, yeah, this is cheaper than Japan (straight up) but with taxes I dunno.
