This marks a whopping $150 drop from when the console was first released in March, when Dick Smith was charging gamers $349.
Last month, Nintendo announced it was to drop the price of its 3D S ‘no glasses’ console’ worldwide as sales appeared to stall. The Oz RRP is now $249.
JB Hi Fi, who was previously selling the device for $298 – the cheapest in Australia – have slashed the 3 DS by $50 but have failed to respond to Dick’s cut price.
However, JBs are throwing in a 3D S ’10 in 1’accessories pack (worth $30, apparently) and free game (The Sims 3, worth $65) for good measure.
However, take note, you cant buy it online, it seems.
And while we’re on prices, here’s another few that caught our eye at JB’s, who have some sweet TV deals: $150 off 40″ Samsung Smart HD 3DTV TV – now $1196 – and a Panasonic 32″ LCD for under the $600 mark.
And shipping is free for online customers.
However, if these sound good, be quick as they end on Sunday, according to the website. (But, knowing JB they’ll be back in a week or two).
Dick Smith are also giving some good TV deals including 40″ Samsung Smart HDTV (lesser model than previous JB Hi Fi) for under a grand – $988.
And if you’re a camera fiend, here’s another online deal we spotted: a 12 MP Canon E0S 1100D with 2.7″ colour liquid crystal screen and two image stabiliser lens for $799, a $300 saving on a electronics discount site OO.
