The 780ti will be out on November 7. While the rest of NVIDIA's lineup gets a price cut starting October 29th.
GeForce GTX 780 Ti will be available for sale starting on November 7th at a suggested e-tail price of $699.
We still don't know too much about the performance of this card, other than it should be a little better than the 780 and a little worse than the Titan. However, the 780 is already pretty close to the Titan, so that's a small window to fit in. Also, there were no announcements about the Titan's price today, so it seems either the Titan will remain out there at $999 as a status symbol or will be replaced by the 780ti altogether at some point.
"As a result of GTX 780 Ti joining our lineup, the new suggested e-tail price for GTX 780 is $499 and GTX 770 is $329. These prices will be live in e-tail by 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 29th."
$150 price cuts FTW! The 780 is now a super attractive $499 ($50 below the Radeon 290X that slightly outperforms it) and comes with a killer holiday bundle:
"Purchase a GTX 780 Ti/780/770 and receive a free copy of Batman: Arkham Origins, Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, plus $100 off a SHIELD purchase."
That's a great deal, especially if you are interested in the SHIELD device. Lesser version of the GeForce lineup are still eligible for a slightly reduced bundle deal.
"Purchase a GTX 760/660 and receive Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, plus $50 off a SHIELD purchase."
With this and the recent AMD 290X introduction, it's a great time to be a PC gamer. Now, if only I had a 1440p/120Hz monitor to use all this power.Read full story...

Battlefield 3 "*Limited Edition*" $56.99 - Buy.com is one of the few places that can compete with Amazon. Unless you want to really try and get lucky on eBay. eBay however will not guarentee satisfaction or even more important release date delivery.
Check out their most recent price drops in video games. This information was just released today. There are some #dealsjimmy here.Read full story...
A rumor circulating the net reports that Wal-mart will drop the price of the 3DS three days earlier than expected.
Wal-mart is supposedly going to drop the price of the Nintendo 3DS on August 9th, three days earlier then the official date of August 12th. What this means is that anyone who picks up the system on the 9th through the 11th can get the price reduction and still qualify for the Ambassador's program that Nintendo has announced. Also, if they release an ad or something, you might be able to get a price match at a preferred retailer if you want, basically being able to choose if you want to buy at Best Buy or whereever if you want points for rewards programs.
Here's the source. All the guy says is that he has a trusted source, but apparently he's held in high regard by his peers.
I honestly hope that it is either false, or if it is true, Nintendo does something about it. I know it's not very "bro-status" of me to think like this but I paid full price on day 1 and I don't like the idea of all these people getting two bonuses instead of the one bonus that all the people who've already paid full price are going to get. Anyway, that's how I feel about the situation.

This just in: Nintendo 3DS Price Drop effective August 12, 2011 for a new unbelievable low price. Is this a good thing or were early adapters just totally ripped off.
I'm totally disappointed that there is going to be almost a $100 price drop on the Nintendo 3DS in less than 6 months. We got a launch system with Street Fighter IV, that was the only decent launch title. Then we got Zelda and Transformers recently. You know how that Transformers game went. Jimmy loves the Zelda, don't get me wrong, but shit, we could have wait for August to play the Zelda. Here's the press release.
Nintendo 3DS Price Drops to $169.99, as Great Value and New 3D Games Come Together
Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Kid Icarus: Uprising Prep Nintendo 3DS for a Strong Holiday Season
REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo of America today announced plans to drop the suggested retail price of its portable Nintendo 3DS™ system to $169.99 in the United States, as new games based on some of the world’s most beloved video game franchises head to the system. The new price, down from the suggested launch price of $249.99 and effective Aug. 12, makes an outstanding value even better and sets up a strong holiday season for the system.
“For anyone who was on the fence about buying a Nintendo 3DS, this is a huge motivation to buy now,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “We are giving shoppers every incentive to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, from an amazing new price to a rapid-fire succession of great games.”
Nintendo 3DS has the strongest software lineup of any video game system this holiday season and the new price now opens up the glasses-free 3D experience to many more consumers. Building on the popularity of The Legend of Zelda™: Ocarina of Time™ 3D, which launched June 19, the upcoming game calendar is a Who’s Who of iconic video game franchises. Star Fox 64™ 3D arrives on Sept. 9, followed by Super Mario™ 3D Land in November, Mario Kart™ 7 in December and Kid Icarus™: Uprising during the holiday season.
In addition to great games, Nintendo 3DS has a host of attractive features* that make it the must-have video game system this season:
- The new Nintendo Video™ service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood.
- A free application allows Netflix members with unlimited streaming plans to instantly watch TV episodes and movies streaming from Netflix.
- The Nintendo eShop is a digital store for Nintendo 3DS owners that provides access to a wide variety of downloadable content, such as original 3D software, classic games that have been re-mastered in 3D called 3D Classics, Game Boy™ and Game Boy Color “Virtual Console” games in their original 2D glory, and more than 350 Nintendo DSiWare™ games. Visitors can also view video game trailers, screen shots and product information for games, including those available at retail locations.
- Since Nintendo 3DS launched in the United States on March 27, more than 830,000 people in the U.S. alone have purchased one to enjoy 3D visuals without the need for special glasses. These Nintendo 3DS owners represent some of Nintendo’s most loyal customers, and Nintendo is rewarding them for getting in on the action early with 20 free downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop.
These free games are available to anyone who owns a Nintendo 3DS system and uses a wireless broadband Internet signal to connect to the Nintendo eShop at least once before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11. These users will automatically be registered in the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador program. The program contains two elements:
- Starting Sept. 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES™ Virtual Console™ games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™, Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.
- By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi’s Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.
More details about this program will be announced in the future.
Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.
