3DS Price Drop is Coming

This is all over the internet by now, but I thought I would go ahead and make an informational posting here as well. As the title states, starting August 12th the 3DS’s price will be dropped to $169.99. So if you haven’t bought a 3DS yet, it may be a good idea to wait a couple weeks. However if you are like me and you already went out and bought yourself a 3DS, don’t despair! Nintendo has of course recognized that us early adopters are probably their most loyal of fans, so they have a little something for us as well.

So here’s the deal, if you already own a 3DS, be sure that you log into the eShop before midnight on August 11th, because anyone who has logged into the eShop before that date will be treated to a selection of free downloadable games. Most of us should have already done this since there is the free Pokedex 3D to be had and also the new Nintendo Video feature. If you haven’t, well then you better get your butt in there! When you log into the eShop, your account will be recognized as an “Ambassador”. With your Ambassador status, starting September 1st there will be a selection of Nintendo games available for free for you to download. By the end of 2011 there will be a total of 20 free games available to you, and the titles are no slouches either.

If you want the full details of this offer, you can read the full press release on the Nintendo site here:


Happy gaming!
