The price drop is due to the issues with the system selling, as this isn't generally considered major news outside the gaming world (unlike a console launch) I wouldn't expect it to be too difficult.

Worth noting is that Amazon.com will let you preorder the discounted 3DS systems:

It's not a system launch. I don't expect sell-outs.

You'll have no trouble.

Christmas though, they'll be selling well. Hopefully, dammit.

If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 222

I expect any of them will be fine to look, but the best places will definitely be those that aren't gaming oriented (Target for instance). I tend to make system purchases (and preorder games) through Amazon lately, free shipping and lower than Seattle tax are pretty solid incentives (not being from Seattle, but thanks to transport am usually stuck shopping in Seattle is why I compare to there).

Shouldn't be hard to find a new one (amazon is already taking pre-orders on the cheaper price), but if I were you, I would try to pick up a used 3DS for like $150-$180 before the 11th, so you can get the 20 free games.
