Nintendo scheduled a marketwide $80 price drop beginning August 12. The idea is to reward those who purchase the system before the price drop and provide those people with 20 free NES and GBA games. Users who purchase the system before August 12 can log on to the eShop and be automatically entered into the, now dubbed, Ambassador program.
Now that Walmart has dropped the price early, customers can reap both benefits by getting the $80 price drop in addition to the free games so long as they’re online with the system by August 11 at 11:59pm. Now, it’s time to stop reading this post and go get a system! Hopefully they’re not sold out at a Walmart near you.
