Nintendo 3DS XL is out tomorrow: Where's cheapest?

With a 90 per cent bigger screen, more grown-up design and refined controls, 3DS XL is an attractive new device. But who has the best deal?

GAME has a trade-in deal running, where you can hand over your old 3DS and buy the new machine for just £79.99 - that's a £100 saving on the RRP.

GAMESTOP.CO.UK has a similar deal, with the price you pay being £79.97. GameStop will also sell you a 3DS XL for £119.97 when a DSi XL traded-in, £127.97 with a DSi and £137.97 with a DS Lite.

If you're not trading anything it, GameStop is charging £169.97.

Online retailers THE HUT and ZAVVI (both operated by The Hut Group) have gone slightly lower than that, at £167.95.

GRAINGER GAMES, meanwhile, is going for £168.99.

If you're not trading in your old 3DS at GAME and GAMESTATION then the price is  £174.99, although there are a number of £199 bundles too. It's also £174.99 at PLAY.COM and AMAZON.CO.UK, while TESCO is a penny higher, at £175.

So really the choice there will come down to trade-ins, reward points and service preferences.

Meanwhile, TOYS R US has it for £177.97 and SHOPTO.NET, VERY, BASE and BLOCKBUSTER has it for £179.86.

Lastly, HMV and SAINSBURY'S are dead-on RRP, at £179.99
