I was about to buy the flame red here but I saw the price went up to $203. What the heck? At every other store, it's the same price as the other two colors! I guess I'm just gonna buy it at Best Buy. Anyone know why the heck it's more expensive here??!

It's because Amazon got sold out of 3DS's but they should get some in soon for the same price as the other ones

No, not "supply and demand", and not because they "sold out". Amazon stopped carrying all colors of the 3DS, see this article:

Bad news for the 3DS, the beginning of the end I think.

It's not going to the end of 3ds just because amazon isn't selling colors. You can get the red 3ds anywhere else for 169.99. I got my red 3ds from Best Buy for the normal price.

That article quotes another that talks about what happen in July. That does not mean that has to do with the current situation at all. clearly has not issued any statement regarding why it's not for sale now.

@ NeoStar9

Have you read the article titled "Amazon withdraws Nintendo 3DS from sale"? Here's the link:

And because all three colors are no longer sold by Amazon directly, it seems like they've discontinued the system (for now).

Yes I did. That post is referencing this article. That post (you linked to) is a direct copy of what is posted there and that's dated July 25th, 2011. It's referencing the first time it was taken off during the summer. Not related to this current situation although it seems to be trying to pass itself off as if it is.
