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/Nintendo3DS
I 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!

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!
