We were already confirmed by Nintendo themselves that a massive price drop in their newest handheld, the 3DS would be happening on August 12th. However, for those that have been very patient, you have a chance right now to get the handheld for the new crisp price of $169.99 AND the 20 free games meant for the console’s earlier adopters if you head over to Walmart! They have decided to start the price cuts sooner rather than later in hopes to scare their competition.
Most of the Walmarts have confirmed their drop in price, but they are going out of stock very quickly. Make sure you call your local Walmart ahead of time to make sure that they still have a 3DS on the shelves before you head over!
