Retailer GAME has become the first to go live with its trade-in offer for Nintendo’s 3DS, which is released in the UK this Friday.
Those willing to hand over their old console can buy the brand new machine for Ł79.99.
That represents a Ł100 saving over buying the machine outright. Imported machines or consoles without their packaging are exempt from the deal.
GAME is also offering an official 3DS AC adapter as part of the deal – Nintendo’s new machine doesn’t include a power adapter in the box.
The trade-in deal will run until August 9th.
Of course, this doesn’t address the issue of how gamers will transfer data from an old 3DS to the new machine. Data transfer functionality is offered, but the owner needs to have access to both machines to pull it off. Hopefully some stores will allow gamers to perform the operation at the time of purchase.
