    The US price equates to ~£160 which I was expecting to go up to no more than £200.

    HMV are charging £230 with Play.com at £220. Looks like I'm going to be cancelling my preorder with the former and ordering it from wherever is cheapest. This is the first time I'm complaining about the price, it's ridiculous. Screw the EU and their "you can't set prices" rules.

    The uk price is ridiculous. I'm going to enjoy every moment of pirating nintendos games if the system ever gets cracked. Money grabbing twats.

    The American price is exactly what I expected it to be. I'm still on the 3DS band wagon.

    Except for the fact that by pirating, you're hurting the developers more than Nintendo. [​IMG]
    (not that I don't want to have the option to pirate in the future, I just wanted to correct your logic)

    Forget it. No way I'm going to pay 250 euro for a pimped DS.

    although I can afford the $250 price tag, I was hoping for $199
    a handheld should never cost more than it's console

    Well, the Wii probably isn't the console match-up for the 3DS...

    It's the match-up for the DS.

    We're in the eighth generation in March.

    For fuck sake...

    How exactly is it fair that we UK gamers are getting so badly shafted? I can afford this with little real fuss, provided I don't lose my job of course, but it's the principle of the thing. I know it's advanced tech but £230 for a handheld? GTFO. What a rip-off. You can buy a PS3 for that. And a slim model with a decent hard drive and a game at that. Frankly anything above £199.99 is abuse of the ability to set your own price. You should be ashamed of yourselves, Game. If it wasn;t for the fact that my local store is staffed almost exclusively by cute blondes and they give me staff discount on stuff all the time, I'd be really angry right now.

    Even worse that they don't enforce that properly. Anti-competitive price fixing is a rampant problem in Europe.

    Well, you can blame Sony for starting the whole $1 = £1 = 1€ trend.
