Tesco, Currys slash 3DS price to sub-£180

Thursday, 24th March 2011 10:47 GMT By Johnny Cullen

UK supermarket Tesco has cut the price of 3DS down to an eye-watering £175 ahead of the handheld’s European launch tonight.

As noted by MCV, it beats the previous best price of £187 from Amazon, and is about £55 from the initially suggested £225.

Electronics retailer Currys has also cut the price of the device below £180, going as far as £179. The price only applies to the first 150 customers who queue at the chain’s Oxford Street store and the Black store in Birmingham, according to TechRadar.

Those who do line-up will also get a £75 voucher book, a £5 discount on selected 3DS games, £15 off Wii Fit and £20 off buying a Wii.

3DS launches from midnight tonight in Europe and goes on sale in the US on Sunday. Expect a full report from the main London launch party and launch afterwards.

    This is bullshit, if my 3DS hadn’t been dispatched from Tesco (£197) yesterday I would of cancelled.

    Surely they can’t keep it that low indefinitely. I really don’t get how retailer’s actually make any money sometimes.

    some company’s sell at a loss so customers buy other stuff inside (like when ASDA or tesco sell a new dvd for like £8) also it give out a mental public image saying Tesco is cheaper or Curry’s is cheaper so people go there for value even though most shit is over priced.
