Nintendo 3DS

Yesterday, Walmart dropped the price of the Nintendo 3DS by $80.  The price drop goes into effect everywhere on the 12th, but Walmart got a three day head start.

This is all kinds of exciting, because Nintendo is offering a "get 20 free games" program that ends on the 12th, when the price drops.  So now you can get the 3DS at the cheaper price and get the 20 free games as a bonus.  Thanks, Walmart!

There are only three Walmarts within a thirty minute radius of my home.  I decided to call them, because people are reporting that only some Walmarts are accepting the early price drop, while others aren't.  The first store had the price drop, but they were sold out.  The second one didn't have the price drop.  The third one had the price drop, and they only had one left.

I managed to get to the Walmart in time, and I bought the 3DS.  I've activated the "give me 20 free games" program, hidden in the e-shop.  I didn't buy any 3DS games, so it's just going to sit on the shelf for a month or so until the free games come in.

And then I'll realize that half of the games are old NES games, which I already owned/played through years ago, such as Super Mario Bros., and I'll put the 3DS on the shelf again.

Well, at least you got both the toys that you wanted...an ipod touch, and a 3DS. ;) Have fun with them! lol ~Sam

Diana said...

Well, iPod Touch and 3DS are not toys. They are tehnology. I have an iPod too but it's and iPod classic. My dad's friend from America gave it to him, and one day my dad gave the iPod to me. And I am happy that I at least have a touch thing. I have my Nokia 02-X3 Touch & Type.
But I'm glad that you at least could by those things.

Oh, and a tip. Don't be opsessd to buy every game and tehnology things. You need to be happy with what you have. I don't say you are obbsed to buy everything, but you could be. I was obbsed to buy anything when I get money, but now I am cured.

this isn't really 3ds related, but rather Profess Layton related. I found an article stating that the Professor Layton movie is going to be released on November 8 ( http://www.gamespot.com/ds/puzzle/professor-layton-and-the-last-specter/news/6328204/professor-layton-movie-gets-localized ) so it would only make sense for nintendo to release the 4th game sometime before that (since the movie follows the 4th game...) so here's to hoping that the 4th game comes out sometime in September or October!

I hope you didn't buy the 3DS just because you feel an obligation to your fans to be on top of new technology. We don't mind if your not!

I think that's cool you got both Ipod , and 3ds systems! You're so lucky you got both those electronics!

Kira said...

Hoping for the 3DS to be my big Christmas present this year. *wishful sigh* Although I kind of do want to wait for more awesome colors. Even though they're releasing red in September, it wouldn't be my first color choice. :-/ But then, there were rumors about a possible PURPLE 3DS....

Izzy said...

You should definitely get the legend of zelda as a game. it is so fun and i know you like the legend of zelda so if you get a game, i highly reccomend that one

Izzy said...

@Kira

I know they are releasing a purple one because i saw a video of this place in japan where they had all of the colors set up in glass cases and there was a purple one... sooo im pretty sure they're getting a purple one 8).

Kira said...

@Izzy

I saw that video too, but I think that it was only a prototype. :-( They are considering making purple, though....

@ Kirra and Izzy

Is it true that they have violet 3ds? I hope they would also consider to make an apple green for this. I want one of that color.

Kira said...

@buy wow gold

They do not have a violet 3DS out yet, but there are rumors that they might make them sometime in the near future. However, there are pictures and videos of a violet 3DS prototype out on the Internet now.
