Walmart is already now, a week ahead of schedule, offering the Nintendo 2DS for $79. There is though a caveat with Walmart's deal. The offered electric blue and crimson read 2DS consoles do not come with Mario Kart 7. I recommend to wait until May 20th and look for the 2DS bundled with Mario Kart 7. Only then you get the full benefits of the new low price of the 2DS.
