If you see any others, let us know in the comments. Considering the unison price drop, this is likely an official, retail-wide thing. We've sent a note to Nintendo to find out the official scoop.

The price drop comes only a week after rumors of Nintendo unveiling its next console, reportedly codenamed "Project Cafe," started bubbling up. E3's just around the corner -- you excited yet?
