    I don't agree. The situation would be different. Players who want them would be getting them for the MSRP rather then the inflated price scalpers charge. We would have less "Where can I buy for under $400" and more "I love my shiny limited edition console!"

    go back to that store again when its open.

    there should still be lots spread over retailers. specially those that are a little out there, as opposed to middle of big cities

    Sold mine three hours after I bought it for $425 and went out and bought a N3ds black with the profit.

    great story man?.....:wink:

    yep. got fucked over from a red 9.4 at Best Buy online. Now no one has them in retail stock so I can't pick what I want. Every goddamn retailer wants me to buy online, wait and see if I get lucky.

    I was being sarcastic right back; my local target just got a shipment last night so you may want to try them. I looked at the black sn and they still are in the 9.0-9.2 range

    major retailers in big cities like target and bestbuy were only getting 2-3 systems each
    walmart didn't recieve any stock, many smaller chains did not either

    I doubt any store will have this even if its pretty out there

    I copied the sku number and had my local walmart do an inventory search for the MM n3ds and they show as "on order 4 units" I'm not sure if they will ever receive them though

    Can't say I agree with you either Vass. I was watching all of the stores closely and only got a preorder for the MM edition by Gamestops very limited in-store only deal, and in order to get THAT I had to call a store in NY to get details, then call 4 stores in my area who had no idea about the pre-order. Thankfully one of the managers really wanted it as well and called me back after he said he got the email from corporate. I ut on my running shoes and made it to a local GS to be one of the first orders in my region.

    The point is, I've never had this issue when pre-ordering something through Gamestop, I've always been able to walk in and say "pre-order for the collectable/limited edition please", but not this time around.

    Also - Look at the Amiibo. There are hundreds of them on ebay for twice the price of the original. Now here I am praying I can make it to a local store after work tomorrow to get my hands on an Ike and Megaman...

    Why not import an Australian Zelda N3DS (Assuming you're going to use Gateway/Sky) ?

    I managed to find a deal of 296$ for Aus Zelda XL (including shipping).

    Assuming you didn't spend more then the MSRP, then you're the exception, not the rule.

    Too slow? You do know a lot of us couldn't even pre-order this stuff BEFORE it was announced? They were sold out EVERYWHERE before the stores in my area opened that day, before I even woke up to check online. All because of asshole scalpers.

    They aren't too slow because they use programs to snipe this stuff seconds after it's announced.

    yeah i know im joking, but its partly down to nintendo too for letting people order more than one and not having some sort of captcha on high demand items to stop bots

    then again why do they care, they probably want the "buzz" around them to generate awareness of the n3DS

    you could always have one of these badboys!
