The Nintendo 2DS Was The UK's Best-Selling Console Last Week

Sub-£100 price point and Pokémon seem to have done the trick

Nintendo 2DS was "comfortably the UK's best selling console" last week, according to MCV.

The latest addition to the 3DS family launched alongside the immensely popular Pokémon X & Y, and was slashed to a sub-£100 pricepoint by major UK retailers such as Tesco and Amazon. From October 23rd, gamers could pick up a Nintendo 2DS with two games from Argos for as little as £99.

This boost in sales equated to a 64% week-on-week increase, meaning that the 2DS was the best-selling console in the UK, even before factoring in the sales of Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL. Did you pick one up? Let us know by leaving a comment.
