Nintendo announced late last week that it plans to drop the suggested retail price for the Nintendo 3DSâ„¢ system to $169.99 in the United States, right at the time that some new games based on some of the world's most beloved video game franchises head to the system. The new price is effective Aug. 12, and obviously increases the value: price ratio even more.
That is a huge drop and I am sure will be in demand. Right now when you go to the website they are still selling for $249.99. So, because we love our reader’s so much we are giving you an 11 day advance. It’s all in the name of love. You can thank me later. I take rain checks.
No worries, if you recently purchased the Nintendo 3DSâ„¢ system before the price drop then you are in for a surprise too. To reward early adopters who purchased the system before the price drop, Nintendo is rewarding them for getting in on the action early with 20 free downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop.
These free games are available to anyone who owns a Nintendo 3DS system (that's you!) and uses a wireless broadband Internet signal to connect to the Nintendo eShop at least once before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11.
