Nintendos price drop causing 3ds to start selling out because of loophole

If they're really out of stock, then I would guess that retailers are waiting until after the price drop to restock. They don't want to buy them pre-price-drop only to lose money on an after-price-drop sale.

3DS, August 12. Can't wait.

According to Best Buy's website, there is only one store between the entire state of South Carolina and lower North Carolina that is out of them.

I will be going to the nearest one in a couple days to take advantage of the 'loophole' (official Best Buy price guarantee policy) and expect to see a lot of them there when I pick mine up.

Went to a bestbuy here in Canada today. Was on sale for $200 and had plenty left in stock.

I work at a gamestop we have plenty i think just people around here just have no interest in the 3ds. Its sad I don't really like Nintendo but I love my 3ds.

Does GameStop even have a price matching policy?

Probably not the best barometer to use in a case like this.

Anyway, there were a bunch at my Best Buy (selling for $200, sick!) when I went there last week for mine. Dunno about now, but as word gets around about this "promotion"- I know I've told all my friends about it- I think sales will pick up.

I went to my local Wallyworld earlier today.

Shelf was jam-packed with the things.
