Anyone know where to get the Gateway 3DS in the UK, new3dscard and playmods are both out of stock. Any recommendations for alternatives?

Thanks for the info, are any of these actually shipping from the UK. From what I've read they all seem to ship from other places (usually china).

Also out of the 2 which would you recommend as being more reliable?

Thanks for the info, from the reviews section it seems as though playmods is the best, yeahgeeks seems ok (turned off their payments for holidays) and teensy are generally good except for a rough patch they went through. Shipping should take anywhere from a few days to about 2 weeks unless you get caught by a holiday.

i think playmods is out of stock right now
also, new3dscard ships from the UK if you are in the UK and if they haven't run out of UK stock
if not, then be prepared to wait a couple of weeks

I recommend Playmods, even though they don't ship from UK. Both my purchases from them have come from Cyprus so it's fairly quick for standard delivery. I waited about a week for each gateway card

EDIT: As MrJason005 said, Playmods is out of stock unfortunately, just did a quick check.
I had a terrible experience with new3dscard and managed to claim my money back but just be wary of them, though they're probably the only UK based reseller I know of provided they have stock.

well 3dsgamerworld.com also have a uk warehouse for uk orders, but as is the case with all uk resellers now days they most likely don't hold much stock at any one time to prevent excessive loss in case of seizures or whatever, so no matter where you order you just have to hope they really do have stock ready to be shipped from the UK, although as they have a constant stream of new stock coming in the usual max wait is 2 weeks but that should only be around holidays, but with it being Chinese new year recently there may of been some stock flow issues for all uk based resellers, but shouldn't be too bad now

Just to update everyone, I ordered from yeahgeek and it arrived after 9 days. Service was excellent and payment wasn't taken until the item was sent. Note the charge was $1 more than it said on the website but I was expecting this anyway.

So far the gateway card has worked superbly, I've got my 3ds downgraded to 4.5 and I've got all my games running fine

Ordered from eachmall around 12 days ago. Still waiting for it to come to Ireland but they said it could take like 20 days. I'm in no hurry though as the SD and micro SD I ordered off Ebay (HK seller) on the same day aren't here yet either :)
