Did anyone think the 1/3rd price-cut on the Nintendo 3DS was drastic? Well, it seems that supermarket mega-giant Tesco don’t think it was drastic enough. From tomorrow, they will be selling Nintendo’s troubled handheld for a mere £115 – £15 less than the Nintendo DSi XL, and half the price the console cost at launch.
This low price is due to Nintendo Europe not setting any particular price for the console; allowing retailers to set their own, and supermarkets have always been known to be quite competetive in terms of pricing (Think back to how Asda was trying to sell Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for £6 at launch, prompting the publisher to get involved). After all, these days Tesco do offer almost every type of insurance, except for Volcano Insurance and Insurance Insurance.
So if you hesitated about getting one before, get it now…or near Christmas, when the first party storm begins.
