Damn, that's some faith in Mr. D right there.


It has nothing to do with the faith in Cheapy, and more to do with the faith in his source. His source, however trustworthy he/she may be, may have given Cheapy a bad egg this time.

Did you have them scan the SKU/barcode and/or supply them the 11 digit UPC number?

Should scanning the barcode come up with the same result as giving them the SKU?

They didn't even take it out at the first store. I'm currently in line to check out with a tranee employee up front because the back register is broke...doesn't bode well. The employee who got it was giving the person on electronics a break...

EDIT. Rang up at $249, getting a manager now...

I just came back from mine in TN. I talked to one lady and showed her what was being said online with Google news & Destructoid. She went to the back to see if anything was in the computer. Unfortunately, she said while she did see the price was going to go down on Friday in a memo, she couldn't personally drop the price herself based on the internet hearsay because there was nothing she saw that it was supposed to be happening on Tuesday. She said try back later in the day.

Something like that. :D

I just really don't like people who don't know what they're talking about badmouthing others based upon their own false assumptions. :D

I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is.

I went to the 24 hour Wal-Mart in Rensselear NY. (Aka East Greenbush Wal-Mart.)No dice. I also called the Wal-Mart in Halfmoon, NY. I spoke with a woman I know as the regular, video game section employee. She knew nothing of the price drop. Although she also refused to scan the item.

Okay final update. I am in ft myers, FL. One told me 6 am, another told me 7. Neither would drop the price early. They also wouldn't let me reserve one because I am unable to come back in the morning. As far as confirming the sale, neither store denied the sale, but it could have possibly been because of simply beliving it was going to happen later in the day.

Also sorry for any grammatical errors. I am typing this all out as it unfolds on my phone

Black is hard to get dirty and is classic.

Its sleek, its big, long, and hard....

I've heard the 3DS black might have some issues with something, so I'm gonna pick the blue. Plus I know for a fact the Black one collects fingerprints and dust really easily.

I just came back from my walmart and no dice. When I asked about the price, he said $170 and I asked if it was in effect. He scanned and rang up 250. He mentioned the price drop but is under the impression it goes into effect on friday.

Well, this west coast guy appreciates the failed attempts of you east coast folks are reporting, saving me from wasting time checking it out myself. Cheapy D, I think you just cinched the CAG Villain of the year for this hope crushing fail, unless it starts magically working later in the day.
