Nintendo 3DS Gets A Flame Red Paint Job On September 9

The Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program ends tonight at 11:59 EST, meaning your chance to get up to 20 free games from Nintendo is almost up. Whether you got a Nintendo 3DS when it first came out, or picked one up this week when retailers cut the price of the Nintendo 3DS early, today is the last day to register the handheld by logging in to Nintendo's eShop.

If you make it, you'll get 10 free NES Virtual Console games on September 1 (including The Legend of Zelda, Balloon Fight and Ice Climber) and 10 more Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games (including Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, WarioWare Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario Vs. Donkey Kong).

It's a good deal, so make sure you don't miss it if you have a Nintendo 3DS!

Nintendo 3DS

Reports have been flooding in that video game retailers like Target and WalMart (and GameStop in the UK) have been dropping the price of the Nintendo 3DS from $250 to $170 early. The 30 percent 3DS price drop is officially supposed to occur on August 12, but many outlets are dropping the price early to beat out the competition.

What this means for those of you who haven't picked up a 3DS yet is that you could potentially get all of the free 20 downloadable "Ambassador" titles if you pick up a 3DS now, as the early adopter bonus is going on until August 11.

Did you already head out to the store and try to get in on this deal, or are you still not interested in the Nintendo 3DS even with the price drop? Or, are you perhaps waiting for the Flame Red Nintendo 3DS that's coming out on September 9?

Valve's digital download store, Steam, has kicked off its Summer Sale. Twice a year Steam slashes the prices of their games for your playing pleasure. School's out, the sun is up, and it is time to save some serious dough on games. Are you ready for summer camp?

The wise and all-knowing Leah Jackson told me these words of wisdom, discounts right now are ranging from 25%-30% off. Prices will continue to drop as the sale gets closer to ending on July 10. If you see a game you have to have, then by all means buy it, but it might be worth waiting to see if you can snag it for even cheaper as the sale gets closer to ending. Only noobs buy games on the first day of a Steam sale.

After the break is a list of some of the deals you should take advantage of.

Microsoft Expects More Regular Xbox 360 Updates Going Forward

If you want a cheap Xbox 360, I have a deal for you: Gamestop is selling Microsoft's console for $100 for a 20GB model. Like most things that are too good to be true, there's a catch: These are refurbished 360s, meaning they were once sent back to the company and repaired, so you might be getting a lemon.

If you want to be really fancy, you can pick up a refurbed bundles. One comes with Fable 3, and a "pre-owned controller" for $159.99, and the second one comes with Halo: Reach, Fable 3 and a controller for $199.99.

I've never purchased a refurbed anything (unless you count used cars), but maybe some of you have? What kind of experiences have you had with refurbished electronics? Tell us in the comment section!
