According to Nintendo on Facebook "Hey fans, we’re dropping the price of Nintendo 3DS to $169.99 on Aug. 12. And, we want to reward all of our loyal fans who got in on the action early by buying the system and give you not one, not 10, but 20 free downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop. Click on the link to learn how it works"

Actually I was laying in bed and loaded up Facebook to check on what my stalkers put on my wall, and saw that and became a sad panda

That's what happened to me, as well.

All of the free games are fairly decent, though. I hope the other ones aren't all throwaway titles. :(

1. Starting Sept. 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES™ Virtual Console™ games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™, Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.

2. By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi's Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.

So not only do you get games early, you get games others may never get, or won't get for maybe a year. I can't decide if I want to buy now, or buy later. =/
