If you were holding out on buying a Nintendo 3DS in the hope of a price drop soon after launch, today's your lucky day.

A number of large retailers have dropped their prices to as low as £179.99 - a whole £50 off the original RRP.

Both GAME and Amazon are selling the 3DS for that price, while HMV is going for a penny more at £180.00.

Amazon is still sitting pretty as the favourite, though, as you can buy a game with the console for just £10 extra. You get a screen protector for free, too.

With some great releases popping up soon, like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Starfox 64 3D, now's a good time to grab the latest Nintendo hardware.
