Since I bought a 3DS this week at Best Buy, could I take an advertisement and get them to give me the refund earlier?

I'm just about positive that is only for games & accessories. Not consoles. Wish it worked on consoles though.

Any idea when they are going to release a complete list of all of the free games?

I wish I lived near a Walmart for this (the one disadvantage of NYC!). I'm worried about getting Best Buy to price adjust, as I always have issues with them price matching and when using manufacturer coupons.

Correct. Though I would think you have until 11:59 to get the free games, but it hasn't really been clarified which games will be available when.


When Nintendo announced it last week, they said anyone who logs onto the eShop before 11:59PM on August 11 will get the games (with the NES games starting on September 1 and the GBA games sometime by the end of 2011).

What are the chances that this is just an ad typo?

The units may be in stock that day but not available to process for sale -- for $170. I wonder if they will be stickered with the "DO NOT SELL before 8/12" notice.

We shall see.

A friend of mine works at walmart. I will check with her to see if prices drop at midnight so you could just slip in there at night and get it as soon as the price drops. Or could buy early and do a rebuy on the 9th at your convenience.

I doubt Walmart of any store would pay their employees to put DO NOT SELL stickers on the 3DSs that they already have at the store.

I am really considering getting this now. The price and free games is probably the best deal the 3DS will get this year. Once parents begin shopping for Xmas there is probably going to be a huge demand for them and no need for any more deals.

This is pretty tempting, but I just know Nintendo will roll out an improved re-design soon afterward.

Pretty much. Isn't that why they redesigned the DS Phat? Because it was gigantic and didn't sell well? I keep changing my mind-- it's annoying. :hot:

I dont know guys... seems your going to be waiting a while for the 3ds lite. :/

^^
this is an excerpt from an iwata asks episode and they claim the system is "fully packed from the start"

plus they mention that they couldn't make the 3ds lighter anyway because the components are as small as they can possibly be (right now) but i do wish they would re design the 3ds to have a better battery even if they cant shrink anything.

I dont know their opinion on a redesign might be different now that there are different circumstances.

Yeah I don't think an improved version will come out any faster than it took the ds lite to be introduced (1.5 years). A lot of good games should get released within that timeframe, so I'm probably buying a 3ds, even though I heard that the battery life is poor.

Wow! This is quite a scoop. Good catch, Cheapy!

Makes me almost regret being an early adopter.

So does Wal-mart do price guarantees? If I buy one this weekend, can I return for the price guarantee on Tuesday?

This is tempting, but I'm not ready to jump onto the 3DS. More interested in the DSiXL than the 3DS. It would be nice DSi owners could get in on this free games for early adopters program.
