UK shops begin taking 3DS pre-orders

Speculate on release date and price.

UK shops are now taking pre-orders for Nintendo's 3DS console, and have listed unconfirmed release dates and pricing for the handheld.

TheHut, WHSmith, Best Buy UK and Woolworths all peg the 3DS for release on 18th March if you pre-order or 25th March otherwise for an eye-watering 299.93. They each list the 3DS in blue, black and red.

ASDA has the 3DS down for 18th March, but fails to offer a price.

Nintendo is yet to price or date the 3DS for Europe, although we know it'll be released on these shores in March. The company is expected to make a raft of 3DS-related announcements at an Amsterdam event next week.
