Not sure if this was posted or not, did a quick scan of the first few pages and didn't see anything. Feel free to ridicule and shame if already posted :)

I was at Gamestop this afternoon and noticed a "New Low Price" sticker on the 3DS consoles labeled at $149. Did a quick check of their site and it is indeed being marked as $149 new valid 2/7-2/12. This also happens to include the Pink 3DS that releases on 2/10.


Here is the site link:

They might but I'd only expect like $10-20 from it.. if that. Probably have better luck with Amazon, Craigslist, Best Buy (maybe), or eBay. I know that was an obvious reply but hey :p

Should I get a 3ds now or wait for the next generation to come that will hopefully fix all the problems?

I was more tempted by the CowBoom offer last week for a refurb for $120. Then I realized that I probably wouldn't have much time to play with it. Given all of my other bills, I'm kinda glad I passed, but this is still a temptation for me.

Now, if I could get a DSi for $49.99...

I bought the 3DS at launch. I liked it a lot, though I was most annoyed by the limited viewing angle for the 3D effect. So I sold it off.

I'm waiting for the inevitable redesign, whenever that comes. With the amount of competition 3DS has, I can't imagine the redesigned system will cost much more than the current one.

After scoring one for $99 over the holidays, I don't think I'll pay more than that for another one.

i bought one when target was doing that $50 gift with a 3ds plus $10 gift with a purchase of $50 or more + an $8 off coupon for purchases more than $80, not too mention i had about $180 of gift cards already so i guess less than $100 would be cheap in my book

If it drops to $150, then deals with gift cards in addition aren't far off, but I suppose this is only a weekend sale. Either way, I'll wait longer. We have one. I would like another at some point, but it needs to be uber cheap.

I personally want to wait, but if Animal Crossing 3DS comes out before then, I'll have to bite. I LOVE Animal Crossing.

I'll give you two reasons to say no.

1) A 35 second battery life
2) An inevitable redesign.

I remember 1 or 2 stores being listed with the $99 price. It wasn't universal and I don't think their names were familiar. Not to me, at least.

Find one used or just get really really lucky. Even still, it'd probably be marked at $200 and not be eligible for the sale.

from what I have read you can get 3-5 hours playing 3D games and 5-8 for regular DS games.

It was a regional deal I guess you can call it. HEB had a sale on them for $99 and I price matched at Walmart.

Honestly with the design flaws of the launch 3DS (no 2nd analog, over-reliance on 3D, cheap hinges, screen scratching, limited library), I can't see buying one at all; it just doesn't seem like a well designed and manufactured product.

I'm still on the fence about the Vita as well; hardware looks fantastic but the launch titles are not must-haves for me, and of course the price is pretty high. I may just wait for Vita bundle deals/sales/incentives down the line. Although I do think the system itself is very high quality and well designed.
