Doubtful that it is a mistake, most likely it is one of the early black friday-ish deals that they are doing.

Damn.. I would cancel my pre order but there is no trade credit at Walmart. :( it would have cost me $157 too.
$200-$10 gift card-$33 (sold TLOZ game) = $157...oh well
is nice deal though, since its basically a free game that comes with it now

I have it pre ordered at GS so I won't get charged tax. BB pm would make it $16.50 tax(8.25%) on $200. Even if I did that, I'm saving $3.50. Damn now that I think about it, Walmart is only good if I want to save $3.50. Screw that lol

I know you can make up that $20 lost with one flip :-P

I never come out of pocket for anything more than $20

Well, seems like a great deal especially if people can just price match it elsewhere. Do most places match Black Friday deals? I checked at least TRU and they don't.

Nice $20 off then I wonder if we'll see some kind of $50 gift card deals or anything better on BF.

What are the chances that Walmart honours this "price mistake?" Just about zero.

the price wouldn't be effective until 11/22 though, in the ad the sale lasts from 11/22-11/23.

That's the online price, but if you go into the weekly ad section, it still shows as 199.96.

 

Seems like a longshot though, since it comes out the same day as XB One. These will probably all be gone at the midnight launch.

It's back at regular price. They advertise free shipping, but when you actually get through checkout it charges you $7.97 for it. Anyone else experience this?

My wife works at Walmart in customer service, and I already preordered one through them. Wondering if I can get the price adjusted since its cheaper now. I'm going to talk to her about it and find out.

Side note: If you preorder and decide to pay with PayPal like my dumb self did, they take the full amount right away. I was wondering why I was so low on money lol.

This is tempting but man, Target is gonna have the XL for $150. Can't justify $50 for this.

You can just price match it when you pick it up.

Not sure why people think this is a price mistake.   Its a 2 day only event for $20 off and it is the Holiday shopping season.   I could see if it was listed at $99 how one would believe it is a price mistake, but c'mon man.

When you think about it, you're paying $50 for a cool design and the game.

I actually think the 3DS's half color X & half color Y design is complete shit. I plan on a getting a case or skin regardless of what model I get. Plus, I hate digital releases of games. 

 

On the other hand, it could end up being pretty valuable down the line so... that would be a plus. Hm... decisions, decisions.:-k

All Customers must pay full MSRP or Must pay extra $5 for GS Exclusive items (hint Zelda). All customers must  get RIP off on all Trade.  Please do not ask Price Match at GS.  Why?  They'll kick you out of the store ASAP or You sure have bad Service.  Unless you Pre-order something is another story. lol
