What should I do?

#1link_02_02Posted 8/9/2011 8:41:49 PM
Hearing about the 3ds on sale today at 170 shocked me so I phoned every single electronic store to see if it was true, all the ebgames, best buy, future shop, zellers and toysrus had it still listed as 250. The 4 wal marts I called, 2 had 3ds' stocked at 198, and the other two still didnt have a price drop. The 2 costcos had them dropped at 170 but were all sold out.

Do you guys think I should buy a 3ds now at wal mart for the 198 instead of 170 in a few days to be able to get the free nes and gba games? Or should I just wait til friday and save 30 bucks?

You're in canada I presume. Honestly, I would just take the chance and buy it now for the $200 price because i'm not sure canada is going to drop until friday.

you should make a commercial like lebron...but honestly buy it at 200 if you think you'd play a few of the games if you hate them all then just buy it at 170

I would recommend you go to BestBuy and use their price policy, if you are okay with putting your faith in them fulfilling it. Legally, they are allowed to deny the policy, but it was designed for situations like this... price drops. Give them a call, see what they say. By the way, I'm a Canadian and have used their policy many times without issue. Check it out on their website, too. Also, don't ask a store representative. Make sure you actually talk to a floor manager, since the discretionary choices of match prices will usually fall on their shoulders, in difficult situations. My University friend worked as a Best Buy floor manager and he was tasked with knowing the store policies back-to-front.

$200 is also an excellent price. For an additional $30, you will definitely get the 20 games (at $1.50 a piece) and it shouldn't break your bank (if $170 doesn't). It is 20 games for less than the price of 1 retail.

10 NES and 10 GBA games. 5, for each, are currently listed in the official press release. However, it states there will be 10 free NES and 10 free GBA. The NES will become available to the public sometime in the future. They claim the GBA are exclusive to the Ambassador's and there are "no plans" for them being released publicly.

i know but you can keep the extra 30 i mean if someone would never play any of the games its a waste of thirty and a waste of memory on the 3DS if you are interested in a few why not get it at 200 you know what i mean?
