Wondering if the move was a shrewd one by Nintendo, letting shops set the price of the 3DS in the UK has prompted a few to reduce the price in an effort to sell more than their competitors.

Prompted by a decision by Currys to sell the 3DS at £179 for the first 150 customer at its London Oxford Street store and Birmingham Black store, Tesco has gone a little further to sell you the 3DS for £175 as long as you buy an accompanying 3DS game in-store.

Currys are also offering a £75 voucher book, which will entitle purchases to a range of discounts including £5 off a selection of Nintendo 3DS games, £15 off a Wii Fit game and £20 off a Wii console.

Currys Oxford Street and Black stores will be open from 23.45 tonight.
