Nintendo 3DS: Here Comes a Fat-Ass Price Drop!
Which is both a good and bad thing depending on how you look at it. It’s definitely good for those of you who, like me, couldn’t swing the near $300 bucks for this thing when it launched. The new price tag of $169.99 makes it pretty hard to justify not buying one now. But if you wait until August 12th when this shit goes down to finally pick one up, you’re going to miss out on the loving smack across the ass Nintendo will be applying to the cheeks of early adopters. Those lucky S.O.B.’s will be treated to not 1, not 2 but fucking 20 free downloadable games before the end of the year! And I’m not talking some shitty DSiware or anything like that.
Check this out:
- Starting Sept. 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES™ Virtual Console™ games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™, Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.
- By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi’s Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.
