Nintendo 3DS Price Drops to $169.99, Free Games for Early Adopters Print E-mail

According to IGN, Nintendo today announced that starting August 12th, they will be cutting the price of the Nintendo 3DS from its current price point of $249.99 to just $169.99. That's an $80 price cut just about four and a half months after its original launch date! Whether this was done as a reaction to the system's slower-than-expected sales, or done in anticipation of Sony's upcoming Vita handheld's price point is unclear. However, at $169.99, I definitely recommend you consider picking up a 3DS if you haven't already--especially if you're a Zelda fan and want to play Ocarina of Time 3D!

As a gesture of goodwill towards people who bought the 3DS at it's original #249.99 price tag, Nintendo says that starting September 1st, they will receive 10 free NES Virtual Console games, as well as 10 free Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games, as long as you connect to the Nintendo eShop prior to the system's price drop next month. Not only is this good news for early adopters, it's also great to hear that NES and GBA games will indeed be available for download on the Nintendo 3DS! The free games Nintendo will be giving out include:

  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • +5 more

  • GBA
  • Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Metroid Fusion
  • WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$
  • Mario vs. Donkey Kong
  • +5 more

  • Furthermore, Nintendo has stated that these GBA games will be exclusively available to early adopters, and that there are currently no plans to make these games available to the general public on the 3DS in the future.

    While I feel that it's a bit of a dangerous sign that they need a price cut already, I'm glad that Nintendo is trying to make up the cut to those who bought the system early. Even though I couldn't afford a 3DS, I've a few friends who did, and I'd be kind of mad if they hadn't gotten -anything- out of buying early.
