Well I've made up my mind.

Here in the UK, ASDA (now part of the wallmart company) lowered the 3DS to 169 last weekend. I bought one and am very happy. Today they are lowering the price to 120.

My original plan was to buy the 3DS and then see if I could get the money back (having worked at ASDA I know they can be fairly decent with this kind of thing) by asking really nicely.

I'm going to try this today and see if I can get the 50 back whilst keeping the free games that are coming by keeping this 3DS.

Otherwise I think I shall take part in their no-quibble 28 day full refund policy (bring it back if not happy, get money back) and buy a new one. I don't think the free games are going to be worth 50 to me...

Am I an evil person? Have I made the wrong decision? Am I going to hell for exploiting two massive companies?

Let me know your thoughts about what I'm doing, what you're doing or what ytou'd do in my position :)

you made the wrong decision you wasted money buying something inferior to its rival.

dont make me wrong but i rather wait for the other superior portable gamings system.

Right. Except I want a 3DS and not a psp vita (is that right?)

With my 3DS and iphone, I'm prefectly happy, thanks. I actually meant have I made the wrong discision with regards to rejecting the free games if I can save the 50...

the free games (if you end up downloading all of them) will probably end up being worth more than 50 pounds

2 things.
1. dont listen to that guy, hes a troll, and a bad one at that.
2. Its up to you if the decision is good or now. There will be people on both sides. If you made this topic to console yourself, please dont do things like that, as we already have about 50 of those every hour.

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was, "Oh no, not again."

I still haven't heard why the Vita is so great anyway.

Compared to the 3DS, that is.

Nice try, Sony's PR marketing team.

Stop responding to ixoria. He is a known troll on the Vita boards.

My friend had a good idea. I went to Tesco and bought a new 3DS for 115 this morning. I returned that 3DS for a full refund at ASDA (169) and now have a 3DS with ambassador games waiting which I bought for 115 :D
