3DS on sale for $198?

So I've heard from RFD that Walmart in Canada will be having a temporary price "roll-back" on the 3DS to $198.?? from July 28-August 4, 2011.

[UPDATE]: Just heard that Future Shop & Best Buy will have the 3DS for $200 until July 31/2011.... I'm guessing this is to match the Walmart "sale"?

Not sure if this is true, but if interested, it certainly wouldn't hurt to check it out.

Some people speculate that this is the lead wave of a general price drop for the console. All I can say is, I've seen Walmart do temporary price drops like this on the PSP over the years, knocking around $50.00 off from MSRP from late-2007-2010. And for the most part, they were not indicative of official MSRP changes issued by Sony. They were mostly blips, or just one-off sale prices. If this price drop is even true, I'm not sure if it indicates that the 3DS will officially drop in price over the next year. Maybe?

Anyway, if you're looking for a 3DS: Walmart Canada. July 28-August 4, 2011. $198.
