Why the 3DS Price Drop Isn’t As Desperate As It Looks

Warp Zoned writes:

"Nintendo shocked the world yesterday when they announced a new price tag for the 3DS. The announcement will drop the handheld’s MSRP to $169.99 on August 12, a cut of $80. Slashing 32% from the system’s retail price is great news for gamers, but it’s being seen as a desperation move by many.

Or is it?" (3DS, Nintendo)

Wow, some of you people did bash 3DS that price is too high, that it had to be 200 that you could buy it.. but now, when it's even under 200, you still are whining... what are you, pregnant teenagers? :) it's a good tech, that need more good games..and we will get them by the end of this year and 2012

its not a desperate move at all but a genius move by nintendo to cut off ps vita that offers nothing new and to get ready for wiiu pricing
