    Does anyone know where to get the cheapest N3dsXL in the UK?

    I've seen the N3ds (non-xl) going for about 110quid but would want an XL.

    You must have reselling sites in your country. Here in Hungary we have hardverapro.hu for example. Try looking on those sites, get a used one for cheaper price.

    Try amazon.co.uk. I think that'll be the cheapest. You can't get it for free that's for sure. :(:yay3ds:

    The Entertainment Exchange sells them for £115 (unboxed, discounted) - £145 (boxed, like-new). That's where I got mine and it works fine so long as you don't mind buying second hand. The boxed ones are often not even used. You'll also get a higher chance of finding one on a lower exploitable firmware, too.

    Cheers. Do you have any idea about the condition of unboxed/discounted? Since 11.0 hit not long ago, it should be quite safe to say that theirs will be exploitable (i.e. not 11.0)?

    It varies between stores. Mine was "unboxed discounted" from a year ago, it came just by itself with no charging cable but the console itself was almost new. The back plate was very lightly scratched, but the damage wasn't visible unless the console was lit under a very bright light source. Over the months the shiny coating on the bottom plate seems to have worn off slightly, but it wasn't damaged at all when it was originally bought, so it may have just been general wear and tear on my part. The screen was spotless, and there were a few signs of wear around the buttons but it was easily wiped clean. It didn't come with the latest system software version at the time, although the people in the store don't mind if you switch on the console to check the firmware version or the hardware condition before buying.

    Look on Gumtree, you could haggle down the price a lot of the time!

    Tesco direct, have have the N3ds XL Hyrule edition for £175, I got one last week and it will be on 10.7. I shopped around and this was the cheapest i could find in UK stores for a new console.
