Several online retailers have listed the upcoming Nintendo DSi XL for a price point of around 150.
Leading e-tailers are already taking pre-orders for the handheld with GAME and Amazon charging 149.99. HMV and Play.com have both undercut the competition with prices of 149.94 and 195.95 respectively.
The consensus seems to be that 150 will be the standard price point for the XL, as MCV predicted this week when we announced the device’s UK release date of March 5th.
Listings on Play, Amazon and GAME claim the DSi XL’s RRP of 159.99. However, it should be noted that Nintendo does not set the recommended retail price of its products.
A Nintendo spokesperson told MCV: As always, the final price to consumers is determined by the retailers.”
All sites are currently only offering the Wine Red and Dark Brown editions of the handheld.
