I see "Limited", so I guess that confirms it WAS a limited edition (or is strong proof of it) and strongly implies it will be a single run or limited.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

The pink and white 3DS XL was released in North America over the holidays as a limited edition, first sold online, then briefly through retailers. Just in time for Valentine's Day, when the color pink overruns stores nationwide, Nintendo is bringing the pink 3DS XL back.

According to a post on the company's Facebook page, it'l be out this week "at stores coast to coast." It would probably look really nice with a bouquet of roses. Just saying.

Just sayin' that was actually out on preorders in November via Gilt.com. No one ever said it was going to be limited edition. Just that it was a Gilt.com exclusive bundle.

Walmart nearby had two left, so I went by today and got one of them and had them price match the Target ad. Went fairly smooth. I hope someone other than a reseller was able to get in on the last one. Now I just need to sell off my blue one and look into a screen protector.

On an unrelated note I got one from Walmart on Monday morning but prior to picking up on in store (which I was able to PM) I placed an order for site to store on Walmart.com (in case my store didn't have any---you couldn't check inventory early in the week).

Well I applaud those of you who placed walmart.com orders at $199 + tax and were able to get a price match. I got shot down twice via e-mail and twice over the phone with Walmart.com CSR. The second time I called I got a lady who laughed me off the phone stating that Walmart.com not only doesn't price match Target they don't price match anyone---period.

If my site to store order arrived before the end of the sales week I would have PM'd in store but it doesn't look like it will arrive until Sunday or Monday so I'm just going to refuse the order. Not worth $210+.

yes I know that none of them has shipped.. that is why I asked if anyone has got this to work.. because they were telling people before they will not price match it until it ships. So no one got it to work. Did you get them to price match? or know someone who did?


I called on Sunday to get it price adjusted, and they said the same "won't price match until it ships" thing. I asked them to check again, would I have to call back AGAIN after it shipped to get it price adjusted? I was put on hold, then they adjusted the price

I guess I got lucky. Here is the message they sent me.
http://img547.images...191/walmart.jpg

Exact words I emailed walmart: I have a order of this pikachu 3ds and was wondering if you could price match the target store add that has it for $159.99 each or if the store could price match it. If not I will probably need to cancel these orders.

I'm happy for all who were lucky enough to get Pikachu's 3DS ... Congrats! :) ... x_x 'Unfortunately, I died on the beach! I swam, swam, but nothing (just Magikarp's Splash, lol). Haha, thank you to all who tried, here on the forum, somehow, to help a foreigner - a Brazilian - in that mission.

Game over, snif!

To be honest, I think it depends on the person handling the case.

Obviously, it's not a computer handling every case, picking and choosing who to PM and who to reject.

Trogdor got a PM. I got a PM. Unfortunately, I think GBAstar got the short end of the stick when it comes to WM Online customer service.

Was a mistake on the website only stayed up for few hours.

you should of read the ppl on SD trying to print the screen shots of the price mistake, and taking it bestbuy b&m stores, and target in hopes of getting a pricematch. In the end coming back, defeated because it was no longer that price on the website anymore. LOl
