Got mine yesterday at 8:08 AM. My local Target opened at 8, and I literally sprinted to the back, and talked to the Electronics team member.
He seemed to have some sort of clue, so he checked on his PDA, and there were 3 in the back.
A man came back around this time, and points to me, counts one, and points to himself and counts two.

The team member went to go get the Pika 3DS's, and by this time the man's wife comes back, and we make small talk till the team member comes back and takes us to the check out counter.

I buy mine, with the $159.99 sale, and my sister's team member discount at Target, and I happily walk out of the store.
Another teenager came back and saw the line, and I am pretty sure he got one as well. So basically, my neighborhood Target sold out of these without even being open for 15 minutes.

I honestly feel pretty lucky to have one, so my OCD kicks in, and I bought a clear case, screen protectors, and an inside white skin to protect the white interior from yellowing out or discoloring ;c

So yeah! I am super super happy I picked up one of these, and I hope you all will be able to get a Pika 3DS if ya want one!

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Honestly, I think that's awful.
People should be only allowed to buy one, from a store.

Like, I bought mine to ACTUALLY USE IT. I feel so bad for all of the people who have blogs and are on Tumblr and stuff that didn't get one, just because of scalpers...

It was the one visualized in the Target ad. While I was there buying the blue model, several people asked if it was all XL models on sale or "just the yellow one". Even though the ad states it was all models.
