    I just placed my pre-order for what I consider a reasonable offer, but hey it may be an error on Amazon's behalf, as the pre-order Price Guarantee is in place so you won't pay any higher. :P

    I remember someone posting this in another thread, and if it's true I'll be happy, but...really, I don't think these pricing rumors should keep getting posted; they're all so radically different that we might as well just wait for the announcement.

    WOW! Thats pretty good!
    Now, I need some money to get a TV/Monitor.

    Anyone got any suggestions?
    I want a monitor with AV aswell, so I can do the 480i recording with my shitty ass easycap.

    Hopefully can save up for HD PVR -.-

    Not quite sure what the pre-order price guarantee is covering, but the terms and conditions don't include (?) consoles:

    If it does cover consoles, this could be a reasonable offer :O

    Are you sure ? it says that if the price drop, you will pay that lower price, but does it work the other way around ?

    The page also says that it'll be released on July 14th, 2012. Do Amazon know something we don't, or are Nintendo gonna do a Saturn?

    How else could it work? The point is that if there is a reduction in price (a sale or something else), you get the cheapest price automatically. It won't go up after the price is returned to the original level.

    This is the black model only (white version just so happens to not be available for pre-order), which I think Nintendo has said won't be at launch. So basically you could face waiting some time before you can actually get the consoles.

    They could sure make some interest on those pre-orders.

    Sure, I pre-ordered Kingdom hearts 3D for £23, it is now £24.99, do I pay £24.99? No, I don't pay the changed price. That's how Amazon works.

    This is just like when Amazon UK mispriced the Vita's Memory Cards before they were released. Amazon will fix the price later on so you aren't getting any sort of deal.

    Except they honour you, if pre-order price guarantee is in effect as it seems so. Just like how some people actually got PSVita Rayman for £5.

    Worth a punt as they don't take the money until it's dispatched, reckon it's a mis-price though.

    T's&C's :

    Pre-order Price Guarantee applies only to not-yet-released books, CDs, videos, DVDs, software, and video games. It does not apply to other product lines or to items that have already been released


    Maybe there lies an escape route for amazon.

    I'm not convinced about this listing. I'll hold off pre-ordering for now.

    Since you can cancel anytime you want, there is NO reason not to preorder it :)

    Like @SanGor said, you're OK since you have the cancel order thing.

    I'm pretty sure 3DS back before its launch had a pre-order price guarantee or was that price matching?

    Either way you can't lose as you are able to cancel anytime.
