I guess the big question is... how much are retailers paying for this and will anyone come up with a better offer?JBHiFi are the second best price I have seen so far for $348 for the system by itself.
It'll be interesting to see what the major retailers (BigW, Target, Kmart etc) are going to charge and if anyone does a similar price to $298 closer to launch.

Big W have it for $348 with a game and accessories: http://www.bigw.com.au//Offer/Nintendo3DSI pre-ordered mine from Dick Smith earlier. Just got it out of the way now, and the free delivery is good as I don't need to try and get into a store. They say it's for the first 200 pre-orders, but I'm a bit skeptical about that. I put my order in at about lunch time, and at about 3-4pm they were saying that it was unavailable/sold out, but now it's back up. Hmmm...So yes, as opposed to what some people try to make it out to be, it's not that bad living in Australia.

Wow that is really impressive! I don't know what to do... I thought I wasn't going to buy one, but this is effectively $150 off the price (including game) so it's a huge opportunity... I can't imagine seeing it this cheap for a while thereafter...

Now that's a bargain. It's for a limited number and there are less than 300 left so get 'em while they're hot folks!

GAME are doing some trade-in deals for DSXL's and DSi's at the moment too.

yeah I saw those ones Fuzzy, I just can't bring myself to trade in my ds. I love it too much!

Yeah don't think I'll be getting rid of my lite any time soon.

Besides, places like EB are only offering $50 for the lites, what a rip!

$50 (min) for a used DS Lite (has to include charger and stylus) isn't too bad. They only fetch about $50 on ebay if you have a look and I was seriously considering it TBH.
Then I remembered the advantages of an extra DS floating around. Easy Pokemans trading between versions without having to borrow someone elses DS or finding a friend with Pokemans online and doing a WiFi trade juggle. An extra person in multiplayer Mario Kart DS sessions, an extra player always makes it more fun. For those two things I think I want to keep my DS Lite.
Besides, I kept my original Gameboy when I got my Gameboy Color and I don't regret that for a second. Why wouldn't I keep my DS Lite? it's been a good friend for 5 years! .... maybe not "friend" but you get the idea.

hmm... having a look around on their site (the offer is still up BTW) they have an unbundled 3DS for $328 with no "limited stock" thingo. I highly expect some serious competition on prices if they keep this going upto and after launch. Once again it looks like the Australian RRP is going to mean nothing. Horray!
