Nintendo blasted for charging Brits more

Written by Nick Farell

3D console will be 40 per cent more expensive
We know that the Japanese have never really forgiven the British for that Pacific War, but it seems that Nintendo have decided to lump a surcharge for living in Blighty.

The outfit has caused an outcry for taking the Wii with the lastest price offered for its 3Ds toy. British people will be required to pay 40 per cent more than the rest of the world.

The console will go into stores on March 25 in Britain and Europe with a collection of 3D games, movies and its own 3D camera system. But the toy will cost  £229.99 in the UK, which is a mark-up of more than 40 per cent compared to the $249.99 (£156.50) charged in the U.S.

Details were announced at an event in Amsterdam fronted by Jonathan Ross and Ortis Deley of Channel 5's The Gadget Show, who described it as a 'complete and utter game changer'.
