Target has dropped the price of Wii U Basic to $240, which is 20% off the normal $300 price of the 8GB system. The US retailer has followed suit along with Asda and Amazon UK, which marked the system down to £149 earlier this month. Other retailers in the US have yet to counter the markdown, but Amazon US is selling it for $280, which is $40 more than Target. Likely, the site will match the price eventually. A present, the 32GB Wii U Deluxe model will still run you $350 at Target. Thanks,

Target’s the next retailer to drop the price of 3DS earlier than Nintendo plans, according to a report on Joystiq. A employee of the box store told the site: “There is a message board out to every store that the price changes are active today. Price changes must be activated by corporate.” This is more than likely in response to Walmart doing the exact same thing yesterday. The Nintendo sanctioned 3DS drop is slated for August 12, and early adopters are automatically part of the Ambassador’s Program, allowing for the download of 20 free games provided they register through the eShop before August 11. So, if you plans on getting one on the cheap and claim to be an early adopter, you will need to do it by the end of today. The same thing is going on the UK too, apparently.

Pearl Jam’s latest album, Backspacer, will be made available for download on Rock Band the day it lands at Target, according to Billboard.
Scheduled for September 20, the band’s ninth offering will also come via a special edition at the box-retailer with codes to download tracks for PS3 and Xbox 360. This is a precursor to a Pearl Jam-centric RB game that is rumored to arrive sometime next year.
