For my situation, even if I wanted to try and do the famous 'loophole', I currently don't have $249 to buy a 3DS right now. Hence, I plan on buying one at $169 sometime in the coming months, first I need to save up the extra money and I also want to see how it does after a few solid first-party games are released to see if it's worth my investment.

As for the Ambassador thing and free games, well, it sucks that I can't be called an Ambassador because I can't afford $249 right now. My DS Lite is pretty much my primary gaming unit right now, I find myself playing on it most of all. I'm a huge Nintendo fan and always have been, and will support them whenever I can, however I'm simply too broke right now.

I hate 'fanboyism' and people 'choosing sides', I find it ridiculous.. My Wii was a gift, and while I don't own a PS3 or 360, as soon as I have some extra money maybe I'll finally pick one of them up. Money's tight, you know how it is. Never mind fanboys or choosing sides, I just want to play some damn games.

As for missing out on the free games, well, it sucks but at least none of them are stuff that isn't available already. I can go pick up any of the GBA games on eBay or Amazon on original cartridge, same for the NES games though they're confirmed for 3DS VC release at least.

So, anyone else picking it up for $169 after the official price drop? Pretty much, sacrificing the Ambassador thing to get it at a lower price whatever your reason for it may be?

Sell your DS Lite on ebay or craigslist for $80-$100. That will make up for the $80 difference.

Nah, I use it to play GBA games. Eventually down the line I want to try and pick up a used, not-beaten up SP to do that exclusively since my DS's right hinge is cracked and held together with super glue, but the plastic case I put on with its support hinges pretty much holds it together just fine.

I'd like to buy it but I probably won't. 3DS has to good games and Vita releasing in the near future, I'll probably be saving my money.
Since I am here that means I am hopelessly lost and need your help with something (or I have nothing better to do at the moment).

Like I said, I want to wait for some of the first party games to drop like Star Fox, Kid Icarus, and Mario, then see how well the 3DS does before investing my $169 in it.
