Nintendo UK marketing manager James Honeywell spoke to Eurogamer about the console's opening offers, and warned customers not to stick around too long:
I'm not sure a lot of those offers will be there for the long term. Those are great offers for the launch. There's huge amount of noise and hype around the launch. Those prices will start to revert a bit. Clearly people are trying to get as many possible sales as they can in these first couple of days. After that, perhaps a little more normality will come back to the market and you'll see that creep up again.
In other words, buy your console now if you want it cheap, or hedge your bets and run the risk of paying more in the long run. Tough choice.
