As reported by Joystiq, Target has "gone Walmart," one might say (nobody would say that) and is already offering the Nintendo 3DS handheld device at its reduced price of $169.99, a whole two days before it was supposed to. Crazy times we live in! First that whole debt ceiling thing, and now this.

But seriously though, if you live within walking or driving distance to a Target and are anxious to pick up a 3DS a tad bit early, and still get those free 20 games that Nintendo's offering, then this is your chance. So get to it, before the offer ends tomorrow.
