Uhh so where could I get it then before tonight as I want to price match at Walmart at midnight. Not sure what discount circular packet means. I feel dumb -_-


Many large urban newspapers have a sneek pre-view Sunday edition on Saturday. Check you local paper to see if they do the sunday paper on saturday routine.

Pre-ordered at Target yesterday after reading about how they would adjust their price to match the circular ad and got an e-mail saying my shipment was delayed until April 21st at the latest. I'll be out and about today and maybe tomorrow so I think I'll try my luck in the wild.


Wow. It turns out pre-ordering early this week was indeed a good decision.

He also has a mole in his armpit where the mic is, I hadn't seen that until yesterday when watching the IGN unboxing.

On another note I'm not sure if I got a less than stellar example but I'm a little disappointed in the build quality of the unit I got. Just as a whole it lacks that feeling of "I could run this over with my car and then play it" that every other Nintendo handheld I've owned prior. Just feels very plastic compared my normal portable devices (DS Lite and iPad Mini), playing it feels much more solid thankfully. Also I'm shocked how much this matte plastic shell shows finger prints.

I might try to get them to exchange the system when I go back for the price adjustment though as the system hinge feels far too loose and the screen wobbles a lot while playing.

Where were you able to get the system? I'm going to town later and there's a Wal-mart nearby, any luck and I'll be able to get one and return tomorrow to price match.

On that note; would I be able to return the system, price match, and repurchase it? Or just get an adjustment or something? No idea how this would work.

Yeah, I haven't gotten any "delayed shipment" emails from Target about my Wednesday preorder yet. If I had known about the price-adjusting, I would have preordered right away.

If I can get Best Buy to price match this game sale, I might pick up Luigi's Mansion 2 and something else. I have almost $100 in certificates burning a hole in my pocket.

Man. I don't care about getting a pikachu XL, I just want a red and black XL...think there will be a rush on those, or just the yellow one?

I was going to go tomorrow morning after work (I'd get there when the store opens, since I work nights...)

Damn you toysrus, I hadn't planned on getting pokemon MD, or Monster hunter any time soon(especially since they almost always drop to $20 within a half year or so), but you gotta push my buttons. I can't believe nintendo continues doing this crap where they do micro transactions, and, seriously, money for extra dungeons?

Yesterday out of boredom I checked if my Walmart or Target had the units out early, Walmart didn't and Target didn't. I talked to a person at the electronics department and played "stupid customer" saying that I heard the system was out and asked if they had any in the back but he told me they wont be out till "another day" and that they can't do any preorders or holds for it. He also said that I should go to Gamestop and buy it there instead, really strange.

Pre-ordered at Target yesterday after reading about how they would adjust their price to match the circular ad and got an e-mail saying my shipment was delayed until April 21st at the latest. I'll be out and about today and maybe tomorrow so I think I'll try my luck in the wild.


I ordered mine just an hour or two after someone posted it being up for Preorder at Target.com (very early in the week) and I got an email just now saying that it is delayed until April 5-23 what this might mean is that they are trying to get more stock but may be denied by Nintendo due to the limited nature. I planned on going in the store anyways as a backup but I am not hopeful of the Target order ever shipping, I hope to grab one of these tomorrow morning and than I will cancel my Target.com order.

I want anyone else who preordered on the website to be warned that it may not come through after all.

I haven't gotten an email from Target yet regarding my order, but my status stills shows a delivery date between Wednesday and Friday. Hopefully it stays that way in case I strike out tomorrow for a system at my local Target.

I think my son will like the pikachu edition better than the flaming red one(w/ 3d Land) that I just purchased yesterday. If I can get the pikachu edition, I might return the red one.

Is this quality common among the Pikachu models?

Anyone who is just getting it to make a few bucks needs to get a real job. Or maybe go to school.

Sadly that is precisely what some people on this website do. They were the same people returning WiiUs in January when they thought they were going to make a killing.

When I went to my Target, they did have next weeks ad, HOWEVER, they won't give it out to guests. They let me check it out to make sure they had the Pikachu version. It was at the service desk.
