    Don't they have like a price match thing? Maybe you could return it with your receipt and buy one Tuesday?

    I hope Nintendo doesn't hear about this and notify them about their Reward program. Else I'll be screwed. [​IMG]

    I doubt they care. Reissuing old games they already made money on doesn't cost them a damn penny.

    I can confirm this is true. Had the flier since last friday. Went to Wal-Mart this monday, bought a Cosmo Black 3DS for about $190.00.

    They've slashed the price. It's awesome.

    No. But it goes for both models. When I went, there were hardly any systems left.

    Looks like I'll be running to Costco then for prayers of the $169.99 3DS to be answered. :/ What is the tax rate in your state btw?

    I doubt they'll be allowed to do this since this would completely screw all the other retailers, and they'll complain to Nintendo and Nintendo will be in deeper trouble than they are now.
