Get Ghost Recon at Target for $17. (Especially if you are an advance wars fan.) I played it late into the night yesterday, and am now trying to stay awake at work. It is a turn based strategy game of sorts. The 3D doesn't add too much to the game play mechanics, but adds a lot to the aesthetics. It almost feels like you are moving players in a diorama setup on your table. This is not just a game one buys early in a system's life because there are no others (though I will admit that is why I bought it ). It is a good game, period.


I just wish they would release a new Advance Wars. I'd buy 5 3DS units out of happiness lol.

Just got back from the Toms River, NJ Wal-Mart. After asking a number of employees at electronics, followed by a customer service person and front-end manager, I was sent back to electronics where the price drop was just put into effect. It was rung up for $170 ($181.86 with tax).

If there's any advice I'd give you, it's to ask for the manager, as most of the employees had no clue about a price drop.

So CheapyD's prophecy has been fulfilled!

I'd say best strategy is not to show up just when employees are getting in and give them a chance to mark them down.

No luck at the Murphy Canyon Rd. Wal Mart in San Diego. Still rings up at $250. I guess I'll try again tonight. :(

Thanks! I called and confirmed then picked one up in Morton IL at about 8 this morning, they even had tags on the display advertizing the rolled back price, and probably 10 in stock.

The one at Mecham Rd. Elk Grove Village, IL. still has some. Just bought a black one. Went in at about 8am, the price came up as $249 with the hand scanner. She did not know anything about the sale but then I came back at 10am and they had updated the price to $169. Thanks Cheapy!

Went to the store in Schaumburg, IL this morning by my house no price drop.
I figured cause I hate Walmart. Might try later on the way home.

Well, after 20 minutes at BB and them calling corporate, they said corporate is going to issue a no PM until the 12th memo, even though I was still well within the 30 day limit (I bought one at BB last week.). Luckily, I got a $170 blue 3DS at Walmart and stuck BB with a used 3DS. Go with Wal-mart if you can, folks.

Sounds like BB PM might be a hassle. Curious anyone know what is the size of the screen as compared to the DS Lite?

Google knows: Nintendo 3DS: Top screen measures 90 millimeters (3.53 inches) diagonally, and bottom touch screen measures 77 millimeters (3.02 inches) diagonally. Nintendo DS Lite: Top and bottom screen both measure 79 millimeters (3.12 inches) diagonally.

Just got mine at the West Hills, CA store for $169, so it's definitely at least in some west coast stores already. They only had one black and a few blue left, though, so I would get on it if you're in the area.

Just picked one up at the Chamblee store in Georgia. They didn't have the price cut marked, but it rang up as the lower price. They had a couple left of both blue and black.
The above may or may be an accurate reflection of your opinions.

One of the Walmarts in Cache Valley, UT already had a rollback tag on the 3DS units so there was no hassle at all. Good chance it's nationwide so anyone who had no luck before probably just has some busy/lazy managers.

That is the one I went to at 8am this morning. I hope they have some later this evening when I get out of work. Thanks for the heads up.

No go in Columbus, OH. Manager is on vacation so they couldn't do it. I wasn't the first to try either.

I got the Aqua Blue 3DS for my niece for her birthday at the Opelousas, La Super Walmart. They had a sign up with the new lower price on it. Her birthday was on July 28th. Better late than never. Thanks Cheapy !

Man, I was reading through the thread, quivering with anticipation of the price drop not happening and then it did. There goes my entertainment for the day. :\


I'm sure you'll find another thread to troll. You always do.

Debating if it is worth the gas to travel 30 minutes away....but toooooooooo tempting with all the 3DS deals going on as of late.
