3DS receiving significant price cut

Nintendo announced a significant price cut of around 40 percent for the 3DS amidst poor sales. In one way, I told you so. But then again, I did not.

there profits ""NET"" are still higher than at any stage in the GBA/GAMECUBE ERA thats clear net cash by the way NINTENDO DOESN'T OPERATE IN THE LOSS AND GAIN AREAS LIKE SO MANY COMPANY'S... there profitable year in year out and have been for well over 100 years this is a down turn after there biggest up turn in there history,,to be expected the next up turn is whne wiiu and 3DS start there life cycles

the 3DS was never going to do DS numbers or GBA numbers at ipad prices it was always going to replace the DS as the cheap handheld gamin g device for all it is now there with a DS like price and all the big hitting games to follow

EVERYONE SEEMS TOTTALLY OUT OF TOUCH that DS followed a almost identical path good to start then a down turn then DS lite hit and all that touch gen software and mario kart

the exact same pattern is now in place with 3DS and everyone is missing the true reason for this IT TOTALLY DISRUPTS THE PSVITA RELEASE PRICE "!!!!!!!!!!"!!!!!!!!

OBVIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!

so psvita is going to be $250 good luck with that sony 250 vs 170 at the most...

DS DSi SELLING AT PROFIT ALSO and will phase out good news for expecting a low wiiu retail price.

3DS wont sell the same numbers as DS. Mobile games and iPad are taking some of their market. They have a harder time to convince people why they need a portable gaming these days due to the implemenatation of gaming in other devices that are carried with someone almost all of the time.

Most of all it comes down to the content though and mobile gaming is improving.

And I have been waiting for the price drop of 3DS, no way was I going to shell out that much for it. Might be more within reach now.

jerry said...

Grandmaster B is right.


A 250 price point isn't going to hurt the vita. It's the software and price that has hurt the 3ds. The vita for 250 is cheap and the software line up already looks incredible. The 3DS doesn't have hardly anything to play on it. Neither does the Wii. It's funny too, what are people excited about the WiiU for? It'll have 3rd party support for the same games the ps3 and 360 have been getting for years.

anon,

nintendo has proven with the 3DS that 3D is obsolete.

Most people don't enjoy playing the games in 3D, i know I don't and neither does my girlfriend. Plus, listen to podcasts, most people prefer to play it with the 3D turned off.

Do you even own one? Because if you don't you need to stop commenting on it. The 3DS was built up to be the next big "must have" item. They saw how apple can sell ipads and ipod touches for hundreds of dollars and nintendo thought, "hmmm, we can do that too, the wii has sold great and so has the ds, of course people will buy it"

well it didn't go that way. The software library is garbage, the online store is garbage, the system interface is garbage, the screen scratches easily, the system feels unresponsive, the battery life is garbage, etc.

It's a piece of shit handheld. Sure it will have some fun games but my 4 year old DS Lite feels more sturdy than my brand new 3DS.

Nintendo tripped on the one yard line, knocked out their two front teeth, fumbled the ball and lost the game.

As for the Vita, no games? Are you that stupid, look at what the 3DS is offering...

The vita is gonna have an awesome lineup, I don't even need to name the games. Look it up fool.

jerry said...

nintendo doesn't operate at a loss?

not anymore
