Here’s something I didn’t think I’d ever see, GameStop getting an exclusive on a tablet?! The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is going to be available on December 19th for a whopping $500, which is just ridiculous I think. The tablet features an Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU that can do 1080P and 3D games on the 10.1” screen. Still even with a quad core, I don’t think $500 is worth it…

The next generation of Android tablets make their debut this holiday season and GameStop (NYSE: GME) is providing the first opportunity to get hands-on with the new quad-core NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 processor. Select stores nationwide will have the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime, the first tablet to use the new Tegra 3 chip, available for demo beginning this weekend.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is available for pre-order at www.GameStop.com/Tablets and in select U.S. GameStop stores. On Dec. 19, online orders will begin shipping and in-store pre-orders will be available for pickup.

All ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablets purchased at GameStop come with a hand-picked selection of free games, including Shadowgun from MADFINGER Games, the Kongregate Arcade app and a digital issue of Game Informer magazine. To take the tablet gaming experience to the next level and maximize on-screen viewing during game play, GameStop also offers a wireless Bluetooth® controller available for purchase in stores or online. And, as with all products sold by GameStop, these items can be purchased with trades of games, consoles and even an old iPod, iPhone or iPad.
