now that would really be a slap to the early adopters lol. if true I may be tempted though. been a long time since I played any Mario or Zelda games. good ole game boy days.

It's a self inflicted slap then . However long or short it might be , if you are an early adopter you have very little right to complain about any subsequent price drop . You chose to be first .

Bubbles. You really couldn't have said that any better.

This is a really good deal, but the problem for me is I want a 3DS with a better battery life (aka the 3DS lite), and if you buy this then the games are said to be tied to the 3DS you buy, so will I be able to move them over to a new 3DS lite is my question.

I'm with you. I know i can xfr games i purchased through the dsi and does that make those games inoperable on the dsi when I do that? I can see if you save the games you dl to the sd card and you take the card out of one to put into the other. That part is obvious.

Yet games stored internally should be playable from both. If you got a 3ds and tied your purchase history to that one and dl those games then no reason they shouldnt both work. In some way it is like game sharing but to the same account.

The whole early adopter slap to the face thing....that is standard in anything you buy. If you want to feel that way then so be it. I see it as good things come to those that wait. The $170 price is what I paid for a dsi and said if the 3ds hits that mark then count me in. So guess what...hi ho hi ho, off to walmart i go.

its not about early adopter. the ambassador programe is about people who bought the 3ds before the price cut. if you buy a 3ds with the price and and you get 20 game free than its a slap and a giant finger to early adopter

Baka-akaB2483d ago

Except it kinda is . Whatever the deal , there will always be someone who just bought something days before a price cut was announced .

And that's not your problem , if you are indeed an early adopter ,if someone is getting extras you didnt get . YOu had the advantage of playing it earlier , if you care about that ... while they gets incentive to come , as with every consoles .

If being first doesnt seems like an advantage to you , then dont be first

Anyone who's been waiting for the price drop should head to Walmart and give it a try. Those 20 games should keep you busy until some good games come out.

So you can buy the system for $170 AND get the 20 free games? That's an awesome deal. I can't imagine early adopters are that happy about this, though.

I am definitely getting a 3DS now.

what?? $170 that is about 105 british pounds, why cant we get it for that price over here its still £150.

$170 is well under half of what the psvita is gonna cost over here , nice move if u ask me

I don't know whether ASDA, as part of Walmart, will even have the deal. If so though I am definitely getting a 3DS. I've been lucky enough to play Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D and StarFox 64 3D and they were awesome.

hgoodman032485d ago

Well that seals the deal. I will certainly be getting the 3DS now, was thinking of getting one anyway after they released they were doing a smash bros. game on 3DS but free 20 games and $70 off is too good to ignore.

Personally, I'll just wait for the inevitable "lite" version that will have increased battery life, brighter screen, slimmer design, and lighter feel than the current 3ds
