Good example of why you should always order online to ship if possible instead of direct pickup (not including ship to store) because of many stores having completely fucked up inventory

That is a good approach. the UPS guy that delivered my 2ds XL this afternoon announced his presence with a very loud thud as her dropped the box with my system in it onto my porch. Both are risky options. I still prefer UPS to FedEx. FedEx has been super delayed with their deliveries lately. I understand there is a pandemic going on but USPS and UPS haven't had a package of mine on their truck for a week ready for a delivery I have yet to experience

Haha, I always laugh when I hear that outside. Usually its Prime for me, as those guys couldn't care less. UPS dropped the ball hard for me but they've been doing really well lately. The USPS has been an absolute shitshow. My 2DS was the first package shipped via FedEx for me in years, so I don't have too much to go off from them. Mine shipped completely loose with no padding, so I know that feeling.

Well $99.99 is MSRP now according to Nintendo so who knows. https://www.nintendo.com/3ds/buynow/

Nice catch! Interesting that it only mentions Walmart. I have to wonder if they had quietly stopped producing the 2DS XL and have a remaining stockpile that is now going out to Walmart only for whatever reason.

One theory I have is Nintendo's American warehouse has stopped shipping out items for the past 2-3 months since COVID lockdowns started. If you go on their site, all the physical items shows up as OOS but they were all in stock before.

All that inventory is still (presumably) in those warehouses. They may have shipped out their inventory of 2DSs to Walmart to clear stock and make some money for those warehouse workers that haven't been able to work with the closures.

Thanks for the 2ds tip, was able to pick it up in store, which they didn't have last week.  There were over 8 in the case, and I was also happy to find the purple/orange joy cons for $69 that also weren't there last week.  Couldn't find them anywhere other than third party sellers when I last looked.

lol weird that it's the new MSRP, I wonder if Nintendo bothered to make more or if this is running out old stock

 

Just wanna say at my Walmart they found the 2DS XL in the way back of the store, not in the cage behind the electronics register, so if you don't see it hanging out in the cage before bothering an employee go ahead and bother them if you otherwise think it's in stock lol

I am tempted on this DS deal...but I tried the demo switch lite and just can't see the screen well; everything is just too tiny and looks like it belongs on a TV. How does this DS compare to the lite for handheld viewing?

The box is exceptionally small, so I could see the systems quietly "walking away" if they weren't locked up in the cage.  I got mine this morning, and I had a difficult time with the ship to store pickup because the machine was down.  But I was able to get it, and there were single copies of Bravely Second and Hey Pikmin for 3DS left in the electronics section.  They were $11 and $15 respectively.

Just picked up a wd blue 250gb ssd for $13. Looks like the 250gb portable ssd were $13 as well but mine was sold out.

Also picked up a bunch of dual pack pony elite sd cards and micro sd cards for $2.50 each.

Not sure if this is the one you’re referring to, but I found one that’s on clearance for $17.

https://brickseek.co.../?sku=484082304

In some real life news, I’m going to try to take some time for myself and stop posting/lurking on these boards for awhile. Will place in spoilers so no one accidentally reads it and gets upset with me wasting their time.

Stay safe, be smart, and be well, fellow CAGs.

Wow!!! I am so sorry to hear that, always gotta be nutty people causing unnecessary destruction. Praying for you and your fellow employees as well as the owners. Everyone will definitely come back stronger than ever.

trchavez,

 

I'm really sorry to hear about this.  I hope that you, your family, coworkers, and bosses make it through these times.  I'm glad that no one was at work when this happened.

 

It's really unfortunate that people are taking a serious cause and trying to profit from it by stealing, vandalizing, and hurting others.

It's only 250GB, so that's only around 10 AAA games.

It could easily be more than that. Most devs are just too lazy/not good enough/don't care to optimize space. Nintendo is probably the best at it or they care the most. CD Project red fitting The Witcher 3 and both DLCs on a 32GB Switch cart is proof that devs can make games take up less space. I've read that the new Call of Duty game is almost 200 GB. That's straight up asinine.

When I mentioned a few days ago about seeing them on Brickseek and going the next town over to see if they had them, Brickseek only had the white/orange ones with an inventory.  But the store didn't have them out.  

Luckily I went to my hometown store on Friday for groceries and saw they had 4 of the black/turquoise ones, which were previously out of stock on Brickseek so they must've just re-stocked recently.

Not even since some are 40-80gb or more.

I just read one of the previous call of duty games was over 150.

Haha, I always laugh when I hear that outside. Usually its Prime for me, as those guys couldn't care less. UPS dropped the ball hard for me but they've been doing really well lately. The USPS has been an absolute shitshow. My 2DS was the first package shipped via FedEx for me in years, so I don't have too much to go off from them. Mine shipped completely loose with no padding, so I know that feeling.

Have a video doorbell and I've seen UPS throw the packages. Then theres the times where I dont see the person at all, but the package gets delivered. They're in such a rush, they do what it takes to get everything delivered on time.

Also something worth mentioning, is it apparently is worth checking the prices on display unit computers, as I was able to get a full set up this weekend for ~$500. Monitor (acer predator xb1), speakers (razer), desktop (i7-8700, gtx 1060, 250gb ssd, 1tbsp hdd), and mouse/kb.

True, though to be fair The Witcher 3 on Switch has downgraded visuals for obvious reasons. Not sure what to make of it but on the product page for the Game of the Year Edition on GOG it lists 35GB under the system requirements. I'm sort of curious as to how accurate that is.

And yeah, Nintendo has always seemed to generally prioritize the optimization of their first-party games.

Also, not sure how careless Amazon is or not but their delivery people are always on quite a time crunch from what I understand.

Blackweb and Onn 4 foot HDMI cables dropped to $1 in a bunch of stores. In Marlton NJ, items with a May 14th clearance label had additional drops: GE 4 outlet surge protectors labelled as $30 rang up as $13, Blackweb HDMI switches labelled as $17 rang up as $7, random $5 accessories rang up as $1, yadda yadda yadda.
