On their website, they're selling the 3DS (both colours), for the low low price of .... *drumroll*.... 205.99 <___<

Anyone think they may have not got the message that the 3DS was having a price drop? Or do they class dropping the price by about 10-20 a "price drop"?

My local Sainsbury's is selling it for 179, perhaps it varies from store to store?

Over in the US, Kmart has it listed in its weekly circular for $249.99, with limited stock. It's such a great deal, I might have to go buy another system.

Isn't that more than it cost originally?

Why would you buy a gaming console, or really, anything to do with gaming, from a supermarket rather than something like GAME or Gamestation anyway?

They try and undercut each other, so 'big' games are often cheaper there on launch, and if it's a massive release, it's easier to get hold of a copy without preordering.

I find GAME and Gamestation to be expensive, I buy my stuff online. If you use the Google shopping tab you can see the prices of many stores and find the cheapest one easily. Amazon usually has good deals but sometimes you can find better deals in random places.
