    Nintendo 3DS XL SNES Edition great buy 8th Aug 18 at 11:25 AM
    As title, the Nintendo 3DS XL SNES Edition is currently on offer at Amazon.com, the USA Amazon website, with delivery available to the UK.
    In my case this, together with Amazon's customs deposit fee, came to just under 150 - which is nearly 60 cheaper than buying from Amazon UK.

    This makes this 3DS XL almost as cheap as the new 2DS XL for (in the opinion of the knowledgeable gamer in the family) a better console.

    A good deal maybe but please remember that the 3DS is region coded so you will have to import the games for it as well as games sold in the UK won't work. Also buying on the eshop requires your postcode for credit card billing so when it asks location say your in Canada then your postcode will be accepted as they use the same format as us.

    This is a good point and makes it not that great a deal which is frustrating when previous handheld units were not region locked.
