Both Tesco & Amazon apparently selling at 115.

I'll think about buying it when it comes down to 99. That's more than a no-game handheld is worth anyway.

115? That's quite low. Pretty much half price since it launched at 230. That's good to know.

Still won't buy one yet. Waiting for certain games to be released. However at that price i'm essentially getting 3-4 games free from the price drop.

Those are scarily low prices! That is a massive drop in price, which makes me worry a little bit.

I'm not bothered that I spent the extra, it was worth it to me at the time.. so the price drop does not bother me.

The amount that it has been dropped by does, however. The fact that their next gen system is selling at equal to or less than last gen systems is a tad unusual.

This kind of reminds me of when consoles fail and get sold off for cheap later the same year.
"and when PS3 goes down you have to change your bank account and the locks on your door."

I got mine for 125.

HOWEVER - Mine also arrived on Tuesday, meaning I was able to connect to the eShop, become an ambassador and now have 20 free games on the horizon.

So I paid a little more, but well worth it :)
