We have some good news for those of you planning to queue up at midnight to prize away a Nintendo 3DS handheld in the UK, as the two main game retailers in the UK have confirmed a list of stores which will be opening up at midnight.
It looks like you’ll have a very good chance of picking one up straight from launch, as GAME will be opening up as many as 100 of their stores for the big event. The company has detailed a list on their website, which you can check out in full here as reported from Eurogamer.
Rivals GameStation will also be offering the Nintendo 3DS at midnight on March 24th, but if you really want to make a night of it, you may want to head to HMV for the official launch at their Oxford Street store in London. Aside from picking up the console for £220, you’ll probably get a few extra goodies as well for your trouble.
Will you be picking up a Nintendo 3DS at launch this month? Or are you waiting for the Sony NGP to drop later on this year? You can check out a useful graphics video comparison here between the two handhelds.
