Some may have questioned MCV's assertion that the Metallic Red 3DS is running out on the UK High Street, but evidence this morning very much backs it up.
Though the red SKU of the console is still available from a number of outlets, it's fast selling out and many – a fact that sellers on Amazon have been quick to take advantage.
Traders on the leading online retail portal are currently selling the console for 189.50. That's a 70 hike on the standard price. And at the time of writing Amazon claims to only have four units in stock.
The handheld is also out of stock at both ShopTo or Zavvi.
And it looks like the High Street is running low, too.
MCV's man on the ground also discovered that the SKU was out of stock at GAME Oxford Street last week, as well as in a number of Sainsbury's stores.
