There is a huge price drop coming for the Nintendo 3DS. Starting on August 12th, the Nintendo 3DS will cost only $169.99 in North America, $249.95 in Australia and 15,000 Yen in Japan. Here is what Reggie Fils-Aime had to say on the matter:
For anyone who was on the fence about buying a Nintendo 3DS, this is a huge motivation to buy now. We are giving shoppers every incentive to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, from an amazing new price to a rapid-fire succession of great games.
And, as reported by Vooks, there is an offer for early adopters that:
…will enable those Nintendo 3DS owners to download 10 NES games and 10 Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games for free from the Nintendo eShop.
So if you’ve already purchased the hardware, you’ll be receiving twenty free games as a result of doing that, but you should click here to read the full details about that.
