Whoah, just as I was about to buy one of these the price has gone up again? Amazon seem to be at £190 all of a sudden which I'm guessing will have a knock on effect on others who aim to match them. What are the current high street prices?

Yesterday they were in stock at Gamestation in Hull for £179.99 :sherlock:

Really? Shit, I'd be all over that. Their own website says they are £196.99. Everywhere in Belfast seems to be back to 200+. Suspiciously, most of the shops don't even have price tags on their 3DS displays, I guess that means they are adjusting prices day to day (or from customer to customer!)

Amazon is back down to 180 now. It's like following the bleeding stock market. No chance of delivery before next Wednesday (cheers to will and kate) so am going to sit tight for now :-(

I'm getting bored of my 3DS already.

'Ghost Recon' is definitely no 'Advance Wars' and is becoming more of a chore to finish than anything else.

The built-in stuff was fun for 5 minutes.

Rented 'Pilotwings' but even with the added dimension it's less than playing the originals on a bug screen, and I fear the same for all the N64 're-makes' to be honest.

It is pretty ridiculous. And annoying, given it's my birthday tomorrow and a 3DS was going to my present to myself. foreveralone.jpg

Speaking of Amazon, their warehouse section had "Like New" machines for just under £150 the other day. Might be an idea to keep an eye out; obviously I missed that deal myself.

well

predictably, Pilotwings is all I play just now. It's perfect for me - and I've never played any of the previous ones. Also, I simply can't play it now with 3D off - it just takes away so much from the sensation... especially the hang glider.

Love it.

And StreetPass means I take it everywhere with me.

Oh dear, I checked in GS on my dinner break at work at 5pm and the prices are back up to £200 for the console. Feels bad man :( It's weird, with Easter Weekend and the Bank Holidayathon you'd think that the high street would be dropping 3DS deals left and right.

I managed to get my hands on a 3DS for the first time last weekend when I was poncing about Currys. It was quite exciting - at last! A chance to see what all the fuss what about. Lo! The 3D did shine through and melted my brain as I stared in wonder at the sight of cute puppies and cats frolicking about together. It only took a minute but I started to get a pretty crummy headache in my brainspace. I put down the unit and realised that I was probably right to resist the charms of all that advertising.

3DS then. Not for me.

It's been said many times that in most cases, adverse affects from 3DS playage are temporary and you overcome them. If you're getting headaches that quickly, though, maybe it really isn't for you.

Playing Mario 64 DS I think has made me realise what 3D adds to the gameplay. I've been getting frustrated not being able to work out spacial relationships in the game, overshooting coins and things. 3D is great.

I was exactly the same, first day I got mine (a week ago) I had a slight headache after playing, but now I can play it for as long as I like and no headaches or sore eyes, I even play it with 3D at max now too and no problems.
