    A lot of UK Nintendo fans are annoyed that they can't access this for some reason.

    Also, here you go, a non-shitty compressed image:

    Well, let's just say if you got the email then that's about how.

    So depending on how limited this is, you probably want to take this offer because those plates will probably become a big collector's item. Got it.

    No email for me. I guess buying and registering 3DS games isn't enough.

    If the price was £149.99 I'd go for it. I'm not a big 3DS fan so I'm skipping it even though I'm one of the selected who's able to purchase if I wanted.

    Damn I'd want one, but an XL model :(

    So this sucks in many ways for me.
    1: Not selected to buy one
    2: Maybe not even able to be selected since this probably is for UK only (as well as Sweden isn't part of Nintendo of Europe)
    3: I want an XL model

    hah :P First world problems

    It'll almost certainly release at the same time as the standard retail models, so the only thing you're missing out on is the faceplates.

    And I suppose it's a given that these will release with FW 9.3 or higher.

    It's not UK only. The promo is live here in Russia as well (quite surprisingly, considering the very low popularity of Nintendo over here), and I even got the invitation. Not really sure if I should bite though, as I now have a Zelda Limited Edition 3DS XL I'm fairly happy with. For me the question is if there are going to be exclusive titles like that Xenoblade port.

    Emm, in my invitation it's stated clearly Ambassadors will have a chance to buy it earlier than everybody else.

    Alright, then it's probably locked to the countries that are part of Nintendo of Europe. (Like Russia and South Africa ^_^ )

    Wow, It's actually cheaper in Russia. With all those recent exchange rate shocks, 1 GBP is 93,35 RUR as of today, so math says it should cost 17 163 RUR, while the price in my invitation is 14 199 RUR.

    Here in Portugal people started receiving emails this morning. The price is 200 euros. 170 for the console and 10 for each of the extras.
