I can see that....but 3DS simply has not been selling.

I'm not so sure people will want to pay $249 for Vita either. I think 3DS definitely put itself in a much better spot now with the cheaper price.

It wasn't the price of the 3ds that was the problem,it's what it offered.

There will be challenges for both platforms going forward. Sony got hit today and Nintendo is poised to repeat. That is a significant reduction before the holidays. Sony must release this thing this year to compete. I think the Vita is still a great value but the 3DS is now tempting.
