I guess Nintendo finally realized that people don't consider their system to be worth $249 just because it has 3D effects. The sales have probably been terrible if I had to guess. But anyways, it's a pretty good price drop too. No flimsy thing. $80 bucks~ So that puts it more in a good price range for me at $169. This is why you don't buy things right out of the gate. You never know what will happen price wise with these things. Wonder what Sony will do now considering they were being all competitive by putting their new portable Playstation Vita at the same price of $249. But then again the features they're offering on that thing are probably actually worth the price.
Anyways, it'll be interesting to see what happens. Starting August 12th is when the big price drop goes into effect. And this makes the 3DS even more of a future purchase for me than it already was~ And the line up of games is getting better and better too. This fall and Christmas will be a big time to be getting one of these babies. So, good stuff for sure~ Looking forward to having one someday ^_^
