BREAKING NEWS: HMV set Nintendo 3DS UK price at £229, most expensive handheld ever

nintendo logo.jpgThough Nintendo would not be held down for a price on the 3DS handheld system at the console’s Amsterdam launch today, HMV are the first retailers to set a UK price for the glasses-free 3D gaming kit, at a wallet-busting £229.

It means the Nintendo 3DS sits as the most expensive handheld console of all time, beating the Atari Lynx’s £199.99 launch price way back in 1989.
