    Is this one of those one day sale things? I don't see why it matters for 99% of the people here though. None of us are Japanese. :3 Also, Walmart apparently temporarily dropped the price of the 3DS to $198, about a 20% price drop. 3DS sales must really not be panning out to be dropping the price so early. I would kick myself if I was an early adopter if the price drops permanently any time soon.

    Well, there are some GBA title previews at least. Unless that content equals out to $80 though, I would still be pissed about paying full price. I think they are trying to compete with the Vita though, just a little early. With the 3DS not doing so well currently, they want to really entice buyers before holiday season in anyway possible. I love the mention of first party titles coming out at years end in the Japanese notice.

    @NathanDrake:
    Well, seeing as NES games are priced 5 dollars each on Wii Shop Channel, and I'd assume the GBA games are a bit more pricey, it's >100$

    I wonder if when some people find out if they will think "DECISION TIME" seeing the GBA titles. The NES titles aren't really all that special (they're being released anyways), but the 10 GBA titles currently have no plans of being released to the public. Assuming those would normally be priced at $10 each (though I guess they can't be given a price being free with zero eshop value to begin with), you are technically getting a good deal for buying early in terms of goods.

    Of course, those aren't exactly no name GBA games. I wouldn't plan on them being exclusive for too much longer about six months after they release. Nintendo knows where the money is.

    I was upset over the price drop as well.
    But when I saw it on the page on Ninty's site I was so happy.
    It's good to know they're finally doing something for Early Adopters


    Also, 400th post.
