THE LOVE IT OR HATE IT handheld 3D console, the Nintendo 3DS will cost as little as £115 from tomorrow in a fresh price war in the UK.
Advertisements have hit the UK promoting massive price cuts for the glasses free 3D gaming console. Supermarket come department store Tesco has confirmed with The INQUIRER a new price of £115. That's around a whopping 50 per cent reduction from the 3DS launch price back in March.
This is more than we expected after Nintendo announced that it would slash the price of the console by 40 per cent in the Japanese market but gave no information for other markets. We assumed that the price cut wouldn't be quite so steep here, but Nintendo has surprised us by cutting the price even more in the UK.
Other supermarkets such as Morissons and Sainsbury's are also promoting big price cuts. The two will sell the 3DS for £120 and £139, respectively, from tomorrow onwards. HMV has told us that it will be offering a 3DS console and a game for £149.
If you're interested in the 3DS at the cheaper price then you might be pleased to hear that UK owners of the console will have free WiFi access to 5,000 hotspots courtesy of The Cloud.
Nintendo will be hoping that sales of its latest handheld pick up considerably over the coming months and along with the price cut, a Flame Red version will be available. On top of this, we will have big game titles such as Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 before we reach Christmas. µ
