    I know that 3DSXLs are normally $200, but I'm wondering if it ever goes under when on sale at various locations.

    Why I ask: 3DSXLs are on sale again at Fry's, and I was considering getting Best Buy to price match it for me. I remember Best Buy having a deal a few weeks ago where they were sold for $170, but unfortunately I missed it. I don't really see the point in waiting forever just to potentially save $5, though.

    I would say its an alright deal. If they have an ad you can price match at bestbuy (learned that trick from cheapassgamer).

    Lowest I've seen is $160. $175 is a decent price.

    Aww, their price tracker doesn't track consoles.

    It looks like they were recommending Fry's too, or to wait until Black Friday. Don't really feel like waiting 3 months, though... I've waited long enough.
    I was gonna quote you and say that's the lowest price I've seen too, but you edited your post! Sneaky sneaky.

    I say the Fry's price is decent if you are looking for one soon.

    Forgot to mention also that Frys has Dream Team at $29.99 for preorder, best price so far.
