    lol you fail at currency conversion. DS's listed at £182.00 comes to $259.71 US dollers. Save money you will not. [​IMG]

    157 euro comes to 224.03 dollars, but I have yet to find a 3DS on that site you listed at the said price you mentioned.

    (google "euro to dollar" and you will get a nifty currency converter as the first result. That's how I got that number. [​IMG] )

    They're saving money in euros, considering the 3DS is often pricier than that. Derp.

    I probably won't buy one until it's like $150 or lower used.

    Wouldn't that be long, if ever? The XL ~ $170 (can find how much used) which may come to $150-$160.

    It be lucky for it to even become $200-220 when it finally get to a great used point.

    Unless you wanting 'till 4DS come out or something.

    Although that if you shop at game stop. Maybe you can find it lower somewhere else.

    LOL, you're silly.
    Spoiled American.

    PS3P won't compete, it'll stay 250 for 5 years.
    PS3P somehow manages to compete, it'll stay 250 for 1-2 years, then 200.

    USA > Ireland or [Insert any other country here]

    3DS can already be had for near $150 in the US if you know where to look (I just bought mine from overstock.com with the recent 20% off any product promo code + 5% Club O instant cash back = $187.50 + free shipping and no tax.

    Look at all stuff you added on there, normally that wouldn't be the case.

    Just look at amazon used. It like ~$190.

    I'm talking RRP, not used or coupon overuse as I assumed the poster was saying the price would be lowered everywhere.

    Black 3DS is still £159.99 at amazon UK.
    Blue one is priced at £179.99.

    Grab it while you can [​IMG]. I have experienced in the past with DSi, that they had it at very low price to start with, which made me believe that they will go even cheaper but had to wait VERY long.

    £157.00 eh? That's about £7 more expensive than the DSi on launch.

    Yes, and if I remember correctly, the DSi was priced £119.99 on amazon, continiously going up and down by £10 pounds. I was hoping it would go down even further, but later in the months it went to 139.99 instead lol.
    So, should grab while its there [​IMG]
