Apparently, on the GameStop website the NGP was 999.99 for a preorder. sauce. I am assuming it was just a placeholder value -- when I was at GameStop the price for the 3DS was at 999 too, it is used as a placeholder until a final price is announced. Why somebody made an article about it or why people tried to spread the rumor it is the price I don't know, and why GameStop put it on their site (and not just as a SKU on the computer) I don't know either. But whatever. PS: Drank too much Mountain Dew Throwback can't fall asleep. Fuck me.
