It was $50 down at Gamestop.

I went in today and the minimum was $25. SKU 020400.

@247 I went today to pre-order and it was $50. How did you get it for $25? I'm pretty sure any system pre-order is always locked on that price.

For people looking for the red system you should with your local store. My store you can pre-order the red while others who posted you have to wait til tomorrow.

Just got back from GS. As others have mentioned, only the Blue was available for pre-order. ^^ I also had to put $50 down. I will check if the Red is available tomorrow.

It's better the game isn't pre-installed, since Nintendo sucks at digital games. People complaining should realize these systems would be $30+ more expensive if they did include the game, not really "free". Plus it gets around the whole issue of people wanting a 3DS of a certain color and being forced to get a specific version of the game they may not want.

I don't know why that would be relevant since the game is likely to be pre-installed.  Also the Animal Crossing XL was only $20 more with the game which is a good discount if you liked the poptart design.

 

However, I would agree that not everyone will want the game packaged with the handheld.

I also had to preorder the blue today.  $50 down.  Will probably try to switch over to the red.

 

I was going to try and talk myself out of this, but if the preorders are already selling out, I may stick with it.

Let's argue about what constitutes a deal!

 

I like posts like this in this forum. Even if it isn't a discount per se.

I don't know if they ever had them for sale on there.  I looked yesterday, but I don't remember seeing them.

They had the preorder buttons up an hour ago but it wouldn't let me add it to cart, now the preorder buttons are gone.. i'm thinking that means it sold out, but not sure.

I wouldn't order from Target if you want to actually get one.

 

I pre-ordered the Pikachu version with them almost right after it went live on their site.  Went with them because of the 5% red card discount.  They ended up getting not even one.  All went to B&M stores.

I went to Gamestop twice and two different employee's told me it's $50 each. Going to call up and say I want it to be $25.

 

EDIT: I called and the guy told me he which my order to have 1 red and blue console. I told him it's suppose to be $25 minimum for both. He said no where in the system shows him to lower it to $25. I told him I called my old boss and he said it's suppose to be $25 as well.

 

Don't really believe the guy since you guys have a receipt showing that it's $25 minimum but I'm going to go over there and force them to lower it. It's just $50 but I could be using that for other deals.

It looks like YMMV. I called a store and the guy told me it was $50. I told him that I heard it was $25 so he checked and the system told him that it was $50.

Is anyone able to order them from gamestop's website? I'm still getting the "your cart is empty!" message every time I attempt to order it. It goes all the way until the last step and then I get that message.

The dude put ALL my trade credit on it today. Even the one from my return, which was separate from the reserve. Not cool. He's forcing me to use cash on future purchases until I can either trade or it gets released. Not cool at all.

Put a $50 each on a red and blue from GS. I asked about the $50 and they said it's been raised for systems. No choice but to put $50 down.

No. I went in there for a trade and to reserve the 3DS XL at the minimum but he put ALL of the trade credit into it. Then there was a separate transaction for a return on a game that was paid with trade credit and he asked me if I would take cash but then he corrected himself as I was telling him that it was trade credit, so he knew it was trade credit. He put that separate returned trade credit into it as well!

 

He did the trade first, which was with the Playcation coupon, and he put all of the credit into the 3DS XL but I thought I saw the minimum was paid, so I just waited on the other receipt. He put all of the credit from the return into the 3DS XL but he did it very fast, so I didn't even notice that. Then he handed me my receipts and he told me that most of it was paid now.

 

I knew that he made a mistake, but I thought that he only put the first trade's credit into it because it was a console, and it would pay off most of it, but I didn't know that he never returned credit to my card and he put it all into the 3DS XL at his discretion.

 

Now I don't have any trade credit left, so I can't buy anything from GameStop without using my real money, which is something I don't want to do now.

Preordered a red and a blue version. Going to get two more preorders tomorrow.

GS charged 50 each. I asked about this and they did say preorders were raised. Who cares, you're going to pay for it now or then.

Pre-ordered one of each at different stores and both charged $50.

so i got the system pre ordered at newegg, just in case they screw me over I also got it pre ordered at my local gamestop. I put $100 bucks on it. If newegg does send me the system I'll just put the $100 into a pre order for pokemon Y and maybe pick up Luigi's Mansion 2.
