It was announced that the Nintendo 3DS would be dropping in price from $249.99 to $169.99.
This price drop has a lot of people wondering, is Nintendo struggling? Unfortunately, this could be the case. In its initial release the 3DS didn’t have the jump out of the gate that Nintendo was expecting it to have.
Does this mean that the 3DS is on track to be the next Virtual Boy? It almost seems that the low sales have pushed Nintendo to cut the price to avoid that very scenario. But with its library of downloadable games I don’t think the 3DS will go the way of the Virtual Boy. And lets be honest downloadable games are more than likely the wave of the future. I know that with this price drop I will be thinking a lot harder about going and getting the system. The price drop officially goes into affect August 12th. What do you think? Will you be buying a 3DS at the new low price? Let us know!
UPDATE: For you angry early adopters who paid fullprice, Nintendo will be giving you 10 free NEW downloadable games and 10 free GBA downloadable games. Does this make up for it?
