Just got one in New Albany, IN. At first scan it didn't show the drop, but 10 minutes later out did. The manager did see the drop, but it didn't seem like he did something special. He didn't know it was supposed to drop today

Success in Tampa, FL. Young lady checked the price (still labeled at $250), and it rang up at $169.96. Thanks Cheapy.

Just called my Walmart to ask if they had any 3DSs and they said they are currently looking for them in the back to do the price change.

Like I figured. Remember, Nintendonly is always right.

It's should either be all or none, stuff like this at WalMart shouldn't be YMMV... And stores that are open 24/7 should have dropped it at midnight, shouldn't they have? And I do hope that all of you who are asking are also having them SCAN the 3DS's... I'm pissed because I had a 3DS for $212 and thought it was an awesome deal but sold it due to no games and needed to put the money elsewhere...wish I could scam the free games somehow for later.

The Wal-Marts in Somersworth & Portsmouth NH have the price cut in effect. :D

I'm now the proud owner of a Aqua Blue 3DS ^_^

Checked two here in NE Philly, one at 7:30am and one closer to 8:00am. Both of them rang up at $250, they didn't seem to know about the price drop and told me it was "online only for the 12th". I'll check later on my lunch, give them a call prior to driving down.

It will be *all* stores - once the Department Managers work the price changes. There's a multitude of reasons why the price change isn't "automatic" and must be worked by the department manager.

Keep in mind, this wasn't something Walmart advertised as starting today. It was something that was leaked onto the internet.

Can a Walmart price even be YMMV ? I wonder if the people that have already tried have just gone too early, then again I never shop in Walmart.

Just picked up 3 of them at Walmart in West Haven, CT. Rang up $169 each but online still $249. Pretty much done Xmas shopping for kids now to log each in for free games. Thanx everyone for tip.

Yeah basically it's either a mistake or it's Walmart trying to scam Nintendo by getting a jump on the price drop and tons of sales...free advertising. Either way I can't see it going well. You'd think Nintendo would be pretty pissed off about this (and anybody else breaking the date).

Anyone know a good spot for free wifi, I tried connecting my 3ds at mcdonalds but you have to accept the terms of use with the Internet browser and when I try to get on the browser it says that's it's not available without a system update but I can't connect to update it!


If you have a Dunkin Donuts by you, try that. Failing that, your local library should have a wifi signal. You need to find a totally open wifi signal, one without browser authentication (obviously :P).

Probably not, but it depends what type of Zelda games you don't like...

Cleveland (brooklyn) ohio walmart didnt have the prices in effect but had the paperwork at the register. Girl had to get a manager to do an over ride . She said "sell them all today, its ineffect and we the only ones at this price" . then she yelled at someone for not having it priced right. either way great deal and there are 3 of each color left there.
