Nintendo announced last night it would let European retailers set the price for 3DS XL, and today, Play.com has come out of the retail gate swinging by offering the new SKU for £179.99. ShopTo has it listed for £179.84 with an estimated RRP of £199.99. Zavvi has it listed for £209.95, with the RRP listed as £249.99. NOA has said 3DS XL will run those in the US $199, so it sounds like Nintendo has yet to convey to retailers the actual RRP. The official Japanese website for the handheld is now live if you’d like to have a look. Thanks, MCV.
