Bargain Roundup: Mid Year and Toy Sales, Bargains and Nintendo

It’s a great time to pick up a Nintendo 3DS or even a Wii for cheap. While just over a year ago the 3DS was going for over $300 dollars you can find one now for less than $200. Nintendo’s loss is your gain!

The Nintendo DSi, DSi XL and Wii are also cheap. These consoles might be slowly wrapping up but if you haven’t picked up one yet (and you’d be a minority at this stage) then now is the time!

We’ve gone through all the toy catalogues, mid year sales for local stores to find some great prices on hardware and games. If we’ve missed something be sure to let us know in the comments!

Nintendo 3DS Hardware Bargains

Now’s the perfect time for a Nintendo 3DS, unless of course you’re holding out for a 3DS XL. Some great prices here for a lone console, I wouldn’t bother with bundles unless you’re keen on the games in them.

Nintendo DSi XL Hardware Bargains

Wii Hardware Bargains

The Wii is probably the last thing you want to buy right now, the Wii U isn’t that far away. But if you haven’t got one already now might be the time to snag one for cheap. We’ve listed the best deals below, anything else is too much. Remember only buy bundles if you want the games in them, most of the time they’re not so good.

Cheap Wii and 3DS Games Worth Buying

It’s funny this year, a lot of games on sale this year aren’t that cheap. Lots of the top tier Wii and 3DS games aren’t much cheaper then they are any time of the year so they’re not worth listing. Here’s a couple of good ones though.

  • Big W – Pokepark 2: Wonders Beyond, $54

    Ah, I got kinda excited when I saw Lego Batman 2 for $39 for the 3DS, but that’s for the DS version, the 3DS one is $49…

    Some good sales, but still not low enough, to pricey.

    I’m tempted to buy Animal Crossing from Kmart. I have been watching video reviews on Youtube but they haven’t really helped me decide. Worth buying?
