The best place to buy a Nintendo 3DS XL for the lowest price in the UK is Amazon. The gaming consoles are sold new starting at £129.99, and around the £100-£130 range pre-owned. Of course, a handful of colors might cost you a couple of extra pounds.
Nintendo 3DS XL colors that are available at Amazon.co.uk starting at £129.99 :
- Red/Black Nintendo 3DS XL – £129.99 (new)
- Blue/Black Nintendo 3DS XL – £149 (new)

Nintendo 3DS XL + Game Bundles :
Bundles are always cheaper than buying the console and the game(s) separately. It’s a higher price than the console alone, however, you get more bang for the buck while saving.
Black 3DS XL with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Bundle
The black Nintendo 3DS XL with Monster Hunter 3 bundle sells at Grainger Games for £178.99. If you’re interested in picking the bundle up at a lower price tag, you can consider buying the pre-owned bundle for £149.99, however, it’s currently out of stock at the time of writing this.

Limited Edition 3DS XL Fire Emblem : Awakening Pack
Previously priced at £199.99, the limited edition 3DS XL Fire Emblem Awakening bundle sells for an affordable £179.86 price tag at ShopTo. I don’t know how long the 10% discount will last, however, it seems permanent due to the lack of a “limited time only” notice.

Blue/Black 3DS XL with Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask Bundle
Asda is selling the blue/black Nintendo 3DS XL with Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask together for only £175. That’s a great deal when considering that GAME sells the console alone for £179.99.

Remember, the European region Nintendo 3DS XL does not come with an AC adapter. You will be required to purchase it separately via retail. The charger should sell at most game stores in the United Kingdom and I’m certain that its price tag is cheap.
