PostSubject: The Inevitable Price Drop Has Arrived!   Thu Jul 28, 2011 11:00 am

So the price drop for the overly expensive 3DS that we all knew was going to happen has finally been announced - and it's a bigger drop than everyone expected.

Starting August 12, the 3DS will be marketed for $160. That's right, less than the DSi XL was when it was new. A $90 price drop is sure to bring in some sales that the 3DS has been lacking.

Now, I'm sure anybody who bought a 3DS before hearing about the price drop is punching themselves in the face.. but don't fear! Nintendo is attempting to make it up to the early buyers.

Anybody who buys a 3DS and accesses the eShop before August 12 will be known as an "Ambassador" and will have access to 20 Virtual Console games that will either never be available to the late buyers or will have months of exclusiveness. There will be 10 NES games and 10 GBA games. That's right, GBA. And they aren't bad games either - these are some of the top games for their respective systems. Here's the list:

NES Games
Super Mario Bros.
Donkey Kong Jr.
Balloon Fight
Ice Climber
The Legend of Zelda
Five more unannounced games

GBA Games
Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Metroid Fusion (I had been planning on buying this game)
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$
Mario vs. Donkey Kong
Five more unannounced games

Now, the big question is, do you guys think this makes up for the 90 dollars lost?

Wait, is this a thing where the games aren't available until the 12th?

No idea, they haven't said yet. I'm assuming the games will release before the 12th.

Watch the NGP and 3DS keep getting progressively cheaper until they're free.

I would've bought the 3DS before the price drop but I was about 100$ away because now I need to get a new TV, a new guitar, a new amp, and a new labtop FFFUUUUUUU! Nk

Actually, that was only online. The system itself shipped after the price drop. Nintendo said that if any companies were gonna drop the price early, they would just simply make the date earlier.
