Report – Walmart drops 3DS price a few days early

By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 9 August 2011 21:11 GMT

It looks as though last week’s rumor is true – some Walmart store have indeed dropped the price of 3DS a few days early before the cut is supposed to officially go into effect.

Walmart, unsurprisingly does this to get the jump on competitors, but it will also cause those who are not early adopters to get in on the Ambassador’s Program set up for those who paid full price for the system at launch.

However, according CheapAssGamer, some stores are just holding pre-orders for the 3DS at the $169 price – same as the official website. Others, who have seen the handhled on sale at their area store, have reportedly been able to get Best Buy to match the price early as well.

So, we suppose at this point it just depends on your general area of the country and whether or not the Walmart in your area is desperate for you business today or is content to wait a few more days until the cut is sanctioned by Nintendo on August 13.
