If ya think about it, the yanks get it for $249 (in their weird "dollars"), which converts to pounds as...ah, £155! And most shops here is the UK are selling this thing for £220!! How's that for a rip? In terms of dollars, we in the UK are paying over $100 more, per 3DS!

Count yourselves lucky, yanks...

Realistically however, the price difference is more to do with tax than anything else. People seem to think that VAT (sales tax, which is now 20% in the UK, but is included in the price and not added at the checkout) is the only applicable tax, but also shipping and import tax is a lot higher in the UK. Of that £220-odd, about £55-£65 will be tax alone.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, the Nintendo 3DS isn't listed on the site anymore.

So basically, the UK gets ripped off, as always. Stupid VAT...

All of Europe gets ripped off compared to the US. The European store also sucks ass. Why it has a different layout from the US store, I do not know.
