    Not sure if this is news or not, but:

    I just went to my local Best Buy to play the 3DS again, and I was walking around for a big. I stumbled across a little display type thing in the back with 3DS games on it. There were 6 or 8 different games (Rayman 3D, Madden, Bust a Move, Sims 3, Tom Clancy, Asphalt 3D and I think that's all I can remember. All third party). The only one that I was interested in way Rayman 3D. I grabbed it, and brought it to the guy at the desk and asked if it was actually for sale. He wasn't sure, and scanned it. It rang up, so he said, "Looks like it is."

    So, even though I said I wasn't going to buy Rayman 3D because this is the like 18th time they've ported it... I ended up getting it.

    Just wanted to let you guys know, some stores have a few games already... not that it matters. It's just going to sit on my desk all week and make time go even slower. I have pictures, I'll post them after I finish my Subway.

    P.S. As shown before, the game cases cannot stand up vertically, however with the plastic wrap on, it can easily.

    Edit:

    Also, when I talked to the guy, he said there were accessories in the back, but they aren't allowed to sell them yet. Putting up the pics now.

    Couldn't thumbnail the pictures.

    Edit#3:

    On the Best Buy website, there are a bunch of games that released today (Like you guys said), but two of the titles are supposed to launch on the 27th. Lol, they messed up.

    My local GAME store here already has pretty much everything in stock. They won't sell me anything yet but to be fair to them they've let me play some of the games they set aside as their 'demo' models. Played Pilotwings a fair bit, had a quick go on Street Fighter, hoping to get some time with Samurai Warriors soon so I can decide if it's worth my money or not.

    A number of games were set to release early (Today, if I'm not mistaken). Not sure exactly why they were listed for the 22nd though but it doesn't really matter either [​IMG]

    Yeah some 3ds games came out today, but some of the ones you listed are scheduled fore a 3-27 release.

    Madden, Bust a move, and the Sims 3 should not be on sale yet, there release date is still 3-27.

    That's awesome... Best Buy has a demo kiosk with only the Pilotwings Demo which gets boring really fast. No menus or anything (I have pics in my blog).

    I really want to play around with the AR and some other games, but I have to wait until Sunday...

    Now people will have games and, with the impending shortage of consoles, will be left to not play for days/weeks/months.
