Dixons and Amazon flogging Nintendo 3DS for £187
Let the Nintendo 3DS price war begin!
Retailers stocking the 3D handheld are all trying to undercut each other and the lowest price currently stands at £187 with Dixons selling it for that much after Morrisons kicked off the price cut battle.
Dixons require you to pay a £10 deposit up-front and the balance before the launch when you receive a phone call, which all sounds deligtfully clandestine.
More interesting is that the Dixons pre-order suggests that their price could actually end up being lower than the £187 advertised.
Amazon.co.uk are touting a similar deal, although with them, you'll have to pay the £187 up-front. Again though, you could end up paying less: "If the Amazon.co.uk price decreases between the time you place your order and the release date, you'll be charged the lowest price".
The 3DS launches on 25th March and reports suggest that the 3DS has broken all UK pre-order console records, shifting 100,000 units already. Amazon are saying that the Nintendo device has beaten the PS3's pre-order sales by 20 per cent and the Wii by 56 per cent.
