3DS Slips to £157. Grab a DSi for £99 on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Digital Spy got hold of Tescos, who confirmed that it was a pricing error and those who ordered will receive a full refund.

Original Story:
UK Retailer Tescos are holding a 20% OFF gaming offer today, excluding 3DS, but the Aqua Blue model slipped through the net.

Currently retailing at £197, the Aqua Blue edition today started retailing at £157, despite the offer clearly excluding 3DS hardware and games from the promotion.

On that note, the discount sees most of the DSi colours, including black and pink, selling at £99, the larger DSi XL weighing in at £127 and the Wii starting from £143 for the Wii Sports Resort edition.

Thanks to C3 reader NintendoStanley.

I just hope US retailers aren't stingy & offer economy stimulating sales.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

You do realize that £157 is still more than what we in America will pay. And besides, it was a "error" to draw attention to Tesco's sale.

How much is this in u.s. dollars?

157.00 GBP = 252.373 USD
Although I live in the uk right now, there is no freekin way I'm getting a PAL DS. I HATE region lock and I hate pal, and what I hate even more is nintendo refusing to go digital.
