    eBay listing has ended.

    Just thought some people would want to check this out. Somebody (who's a reputable seller) is selling the 3DS for only $149.99 on eBay with free shipping. Thought this could help some people with savings who are planning on getting one soon [​IMG].

    Says limited quantity available so not sure on how many they have left, but try and get in on the deal as soon as you can.

    WOAH!
    Thats less than £100. Its around £90 o.o

    I remember, I coudnt get a used DS lite for any less than £70 even after YEARS.
    At the rate its going, used ones will be available for that(£70) price pretty soon.

    What are you talking about? This is an Ebay sale not another price drop.

    That's exactly what I'm talking about [​IMG]
    If a lot of people go out and start selling for 149.99, to compete, other people will have to drop the price lower and lower.

    Oh, sorry. Well, that'd be nice, but I like to think that people are smarter than to buy a fishy looking $50 3DS.

    Considering we are able to get it for £99 in the UK, I woudnt be surprised if they start dropping the price till its free.. lol jokes aside.
    But hell, the UK official retail price was 229.00 GBP = 375.725 USD.
    Now, we can get it for 99.00 GBP = 162.430 USD

    thats what? about 44% price drop. Fairly new prodct..

    Please didn't turn this to a hate or whatever on the 3ds thread. :/

    Anyway, good I guess...

    Well, these guys are selling at a loss, so they're kind of banking for a lot of sales.

    Good luck to them, I guess.

    The thing you gotta keep in mind is that Nintendo doesn't sell the 3ds to retailers for $170, but about half that (it's called wholesale). The $170 is just the suggested price, they can easily be sold for $150 if the retailer doesn't have a lot of overhead or wants less profit per item but more items sold. Just an FYI [​IMG]
