Hut sites price 3DS at £300

A number of sites have gone live with pre-orders for the Nintendo 3DS, with a placeholder price of 299 having been put in place.

Eurogamer spotted the listings on The Hut, WHSmith, Best Buy and Woolworths. What the site didn’t note, though, is that all of these portals are run from The Hut’s centralised system, effectively meaning it’s a single listing.

Other retailers are yet to go live with a price. and Amazon are allowing visitors to register their interest while GAME and others simply have placeholder page in place.

Concrete launch details for the machine will be unveiled next Wednesday at Nintendo’s Amsterdam event. MCV has been lead to believe that the console will arrive in the UK on or around March 25th with a shelf price of 200-230.

The 3DS will cost Y25,000 in Japan, which on a direct translation works out to 192.
