The price drop happens on August 12 and the places selling it for $169.99 aren't shipping those until August 12 so you won't get the free games. You can always hope that they make a mistake and sell it early. Stranger things have happened. There are places slashing the price to $200 immediately (see above) so you'd essentially get 20 games for ~$30 if you buy it at $200 before August 12. And if you go to a retailer with a 30 day price guarantee and buy it right now, you can take your receipt in and get the difference back between what you paid for it and the new $169.99 price tag.
