    well the trade in has nothing to do with sony obviously. Like gamestop here, they do these trade in things all the time, get extra credit twords a specific things when you trade in new gen systems.

    That's an okay-ish deal if you no longer have interest in the 3DS anymore. I'm rather looking forward to the upcoming games for the 3DS. Kid Icarus, Luigi mansion, paper mario, kingdom hearts. All too good to miss out. =P

    I would have if i'd paid the current 3DS price. There's no way i'm trading in something that i paid the launch price on and that i have just one game for. I'm still waiting for the 3DS to have some games that actually demand playing. If i could go back in time at this point i'd tell my previous self NOT to buy either the 3DS or the Vita at launch.

    If I traded in my 3DS and THEY gave me money, I'd consider.

    Quite a stupid move to trade in your 3ds for, especially, a vita. Considering all the awesome upcoming games.

    Stores are suffering 3DS shortages in some regions while there will be no shortage for Vita's whatsoever- they want to prepare for that. Not a Sony tactic, and actually, quite a good deal. 130-140 pounds off? Nice.

    Lol@thread title.

    I entered this thread thinking they slashed the price too much too quickly. Gee... But I also thought it must be for a limited time and part of some promotion.

    I have Mario Kart 7, Ocarina of Time and Samurai Warriors and sold my Ambassador 3DS to get a Vita. And I'm hyped.

    actually a good deal - then again it begs the question as to why anyone would have bought the 3DS in the first place

    I think it's a great handheld, and not to mention the bunch of games coming out for it ! If only there was good support for nintendo products and games in my area i would have gotten one

    just pre-ordered a Vita at my nearest Sony World - can't wait !

    I guess i'll also import a 3DS some day as well.
