I'm jumping in at this price point. Nice to have a game system I can take with me on travel to kill time on (or waiting for) flights.

Now I need to find a cheap source for trailing-edge games like Madden '08 or other titles that have been 'obsoleted' due to a recent re-release or update. That, and some nice inexpensive GBA games and I'll be set. But where to look?

I'm not kenbuzz, but $10 is cheap.

I'm considering jumping on this deal myself, but noticed that the shipping time is described as "Order now for shipment in 2 to 4 weeks" for all of the sale colors.

Does anyone have any experience with how accurate Target is with its shipping estimates? I'm fine with waiting 4 weeks, but if it slips to 6 weeks, it'd be too late for me to take it on a trip that I'd be buying it for. In the mean time, I assume I'll be buying games for it, so it won't be a simple question of canceling the order if it doesn't arrive in time.

Thanks.


EDIT: With all the colors out of stock other than crimson, I saw the writing on the wall and placed my order. If someone wants to bump this thread in a month, I'll be glad to let you know when and if they shipped it.

Just got back from my local Wal-Mart in Queen Creek, AZ. They were happy to PM Target with no questions asked.
