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.

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.

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.
