Can someone explain this "Loophole" to me?

#1MabinogiFanPosted 8/9/2011 8:57:51 PM
Is this loophole just a way to get a price cut 3DS and still get the 20 games?

I must say that I already bought the 3DS at launch and I will not be taking advantage of this loophole.

Actually I believe it's against the TOU to explain it.

You best be trolling.

The loophole consists of buying now in order to get the 20 games, and then taking advantage of the retailer's price matching policy to get the $169.99 price on Friday.

Or you can just buy it now at WalMart for $169.96 as they dropped it early.

You forgot the most important step: Delude yourself into thinking you've done nothing wrong.

People were being modded for telling people how to do the loophole until the whole board became a "how to" into the loophole instead of an actual 3DS discussion board. No, he's not trolling.

The price matching is in store policy so I don't see why it would be wrong.

You just have buy a 3DS before the 12th. It doesn't matter what price you pay for this 3DS, access it online and you will get the 20 free games.

Probably because anyone with a brain knows that there isn't anything illegal or shady about it. Heck, the Wal-Mart drop isn't even a loophole at all. Nearly 100% of the negativty towards it comes from people jealous of those that are able to take advantage of it.
