Yep. I assumed this would be new info like an actual ad confirmation or employee confirmation, but this is the same sketchy info that has been posted elsewhere all day.

That is how our sapphires look. Unless someone else can confirm sooner, I will check when I go in tomorrow and see if we even have them to scan. Will see if we have any ad info on it either, I haven't seen anything special pop-up promoting the 3DSchu in our systems prior to this thread/pic.

Regardless if this is legit or not does anyone think Amazon will match BB/TRU on their prices. I have a large amount of Amazon credit I'd prefer to use on this but $150 seems like a pretty good price regardless. I could sell off my 3DS for essentially a little bit less and ALMOST break even.

Amazon doesn't sell 3ds themselves. Actually they don't even sell any nintendo consoles, they only fullfill the shipment for other sellers.

Was strongly considering buying one @ $160, this just sweetens the pot. Don't think I can say no to it with Luigi's Mansion coming out and the free game you can download.

Amazon doesn't even sell the 3DS. It's all from marketplace sellers

Agreed, I was hoping this was an ad as well. I hope we'll get some news of this soon. This whole thing is being really oddly advertised (or lack thereof).

To be fair TRU does A LOT of unadvertised good deals. Most recent is probably the blu-ray players we have on sale for $20, which has been running for about a month now. Wouldn't surprise me if this sale ends up being an un-ad sale when i check tomorrow for you guys.

I meant in general. A small blurb in the local Ad of the store page but nothing from Nintendo or TPCi is somewhat strange, especially considering Pokemon just had/is currently hosting the Pokemon States Tournament this month. There's also nothing really being posted about the Pikachu 3DS anywhere, as far as I can see anyway.

Wonder if this will be a promotional price when you buy it in combination with the new pokemon game.
Hopefully my local Tru get more than 1-2 in. To be safe I'll probably pick it up at target first since they open earlier and if I get one at Tru return the other.

Ugh, I hope not. That would kill it for me.

Not all stores do that. Depends on who you talk to.
