At this point, count your blessings that you found one that isn't at a scalper rate. If I owned a store with one in stock, I wouldn't price match a rain check on this item because there is no way the store you got the rain check at will never get the systems back in.

My advice, buy it for $200 and thank them very kindly on your way out. :)

I didn't know Target's track record prior to pre-ordering this item. Had I known, I certainly would of avoided them and will do so in the future. For a company that deals so much in Nintendo Exclusivity, you'd think they'd be a little more on it than this. Shame.

I was able to land a Pikachu 3DS XL however via the Wal-Mart In Store Pickup route. Still ... bleh.

if people are buying this because it's rare i understand, its somthing to put away and dont ever open up the box. but other then that, i cant see why a grown man would want to buy somthing that, i think only a 5 year old little girl would want. and its also butt ugly.
but thats just my opinion.

:D I'm not a 5 year old little girl. I'm a grown (old) man. :oldman: ;)

My reason for buying this was mainly because I like Pokemon. I've been playing since the late 90s, and I even own the Pokemon Gameboy Color Edition. Just like this 3DS XL, I had no intentions of even buying the Gameboy Color until they came out with a special version. I was quite happy with my Gameboy Pocket at the time. And I'm still quite happy with my DS Lite. But I will say there wasn't a chance in hell I was gonna pay a scalper for this thing. Had I not found one at a Wal-Mart, I woulda just moved on with my life.

So, is buying this thing silly of me? Perhaps. But it makes me happy, and that's pretty much the point of gaming in the first place, isn't it. :D

for all those who dont believe these are discontinued at target i took a picture of the pda while i was at work today *clipped for space*

I signed up for this forum just to thank you for this post. I guess I just really needed the dose of reality. I was sorta hoping against hope that Target might actually get more in for those of us who pre-ordered and got unceremoniously put on a back-order list.

The most recent e-mail from Target stated as follows:

We just found out about an unexpected delay that affects your order. We're sorry, but we may not be able to deliver your item(s) by the estimated delivery date you received with your original order. New estimated delivery date(s) are included below. If we can't deliver your item(s) by this new estimated delivery date, we will automatically cancel your order. Here's what you can do:

If you'd like us to keep trying to deliver these item(s) beyond the new estimated delivery date, visit the order detail page and approve future delivery updates. We will do our best to fulfill the delayed item(s) from your order, but if we can't we will let you know as soon as possible.

If the item(s) is on backorder and you no longer want the delayed item(s), you can cancel them from the order detail page.

You will not be charged for any items until they ship. If items need to be shipped separately, your shipping charges will not increase.

Thanks for shopping at Target.
Team Target

The new target delivery date is 4/17/2013 - 5/3/2013. Now either they're expecting another shipment, or they just really enjoy messing with my head. At this point, I don't really care which it is, I'm just ready for it to be over. Ready to be told there's no Santa Claus, no Easter Bunny.

So yeah, thanks again for the post ^ up there. I feel released it a strange way. ;)
