Why do we have to pay so much more than the Americans? FFS. Still,good news, I'll be expecting the preorders to hit soonSmilie

Fuck off Nintendo. Need more be said? Smilie

Wow, it's so much cheaper in America. I'm still buying it though.Smilie

Booo! hiss!

Not getting one on launch, for definite.

I'm still getting this. I can afford it so, why not? Idc if Americans pay less than us. They do with a lot of things. Shit happens.

Since I've already preordered, I'll be getting on launch for definite. Can't wait till March 25th. Smilie

That's sorta the price I predicted xD
I'll probably be getting one on launch since I really don't mind the price of that.

HMV has it at £229.99: http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=280;0;-1;-1;-1&sku=411861

Yeah neither do I but we almost have to pay double what Americans have to pay. The American price is the right price though.

I haven't seen any Dutch prices yet. But with the $250 American price I suspect we'll have to pay the same number in euros. Smilie

I really hope European retailers won't be all greedy and sell it for ridiculous prices. I'm probably getting one from Amazon but they have yet to state a price or even accept pre-orders. Guess I'll have to wait.

Actually a smart move from Nintendo saying that the price is up to the retailers because we all know who everyone is going to blame yet again...Smilie

219 quid on Play.com: http://www.play.com/Games/DS/-/4659/3926/-/15476775/Nintendo-3DS-Console-Blue/Product.html?searchtype=genre

How low will it go?

I hope Nintendo read their fans 'Tweets' to see what they think about the pricing. If they don't bring that ridiculous price down, then it may bomb in the UK.

I don't even have a job and I'm going to get it Smilie
Seriously it sucks that the price is almost double compared to the US but I still don't mind paying that much tbh considering I'll use it a lot more then my Xbox or PS3 anyway xD

I have well over the amount for one. It's just outrageous pricing, in my opinion and there's no way I would spend that amount on something like that.

Due to the US price working out a lot cheaper, I feel we are being ripped off by Nintendo. Can you really agree with something like that? I can't, personally.

I don't agree with it but Europe get ripped off a lot so I don't really care anymore xD
On a different note I'm curious to see what the launch games are.

I'll get one, eventually. I'll wait until there are a few titles I want to buy it for

Well you guys get it before us & it's not double what we're paying going by the exchange rate so quit crying chaps.

I'll wait to get one, not because I can't afford it but because of the inevitable XL version I KNOW Nintendo will release lol.

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

Perhaps I am overreacting and getting a bit hysterical about it all.

Sorry about that. ^_^;

It's still nearly 150% of the US price. And 2 days earlier is not worth that much

Let's wait to get some actual retail prices in before getting angry. I bet some retailers are going to sell it at £200 - £210. Maybe some will do it for less than £200?

I think it will take maybe a few days for the competition to settle. With such a range between price points, surely retailers that price it lower will have the advantage right there even though they get less per system sold.

I highly dought its double the US price.
The exchange rate has changed a lot since the DS, remember.

Also, why does the "live twitter feed" link take me to the 3D Video on 3ds article?

Seriously? it's like £60 more than the US is paying for it (or there abouts), I guess retailers must think the demands really high for it. But seriously, if it wasn't region locked we might as well ship one from the US, evwen with the shipping price it would be cheaper.
