More movement has been seen from retailers on the 3DS price, and in the right direction – downwards.
Nintendo’s 3D handheld has an RRP of £230, and many retailers fielded the device at that level initially.
Then ShopTo.net seriously broke ranks with a limited offer of the 3DS for £200. That was followed not long after by Amazon dropping its price tag to £202.
And now other retailers are hitting the £200 barrier, or just under, as Sainsbury’s and Dixons have dropped their asking price to £200 and £199 respectively.
Apparently the Sainsbury’s offer is time-limited, like ShopTo.net, and the slight catch with Dixons is that the company are asking for a tenner deposit.
It seems unlikely that prices are going to dip further beyond the £200 range, although there’s still time yet, as the 3DS isn’t out until March 25th.
