Has the price drop announcement made anyone want to buy it now?

I have decided I now officially am on the side of 'buying' for the 3DS. I've been on the fence since the $250 price announcement. I now just need to get ahold of $250 to buy it before August 12th so I can get the 20 free games when they come out.

I'm trying to hold out for a possible release of the Flare Red 3DS in North America before I buy one.

I wish they would announce the purple 3DS. If they announced that say in the next couple days, I would wait for the price drop. A purple 3ds is that important.

Yes, I'm going to pick it up for $169. To me it's a far more reasonable price, especially when I don't have money to throw around.

I'll just pick and choose later on from the free games offered now when they inevitably go up on Virtual Console (including the GBA ones).

I've always wanted a 3DS but couldn't find myself shelling out $250 for one. But at $170 hell ya. I'll be getting it the day the price drops. Especially now that there are some good games worth buying, as well.

Buying one tomorrow as a matter of fact.

It's hard being patient. @170$ the only thing holding me back is an updated version of it. The battery issue along with the glossy inside are factors that make me want to hold up.

In my opinion, OOT3D is the only retail game out now worth buying. However, there are tons of great titles on the eShop, including Link's Awakening DX, Super Mario Land, Donkey Kong, PokÚdex 3D (for free!), and the vast library of DSiWare.
