A price drop could happen. This year is looking pretty horrid for games so how else do you spark sales? It doesnt have to be crazy drastic like the 3DS, but a $50 drop will go a long way to helping more people buy a system that doesnt have many games.

I really dont think this thing will be rolling with good games coming out until 2014. This year is pretty mostly just Pikmin and Monster Hunter, neither of which are all that popular in the US, and a Zelda remake, which will of course sell but the fact is its still a remake of something many people already played. Wonderful 101 looks like the kind of game that would do really well in Japan, not in the US. It looks like the type of game youd see on the DS, plus its a new IP. New IPs dont sell $300 systems to the average gamer.

I really dont see that 1 big time system seller this year, unless there is something at the end of the year that hasnt been announced yet.


I'd bank on a 3D mario before Christmas.

Nintendo knows the value of 3D Mario dropping in Christmas time as it sells systems like nothing else.

We saw Mario Galaxy 1 drop exactly 1 year after the Wii released.... They could be going for a repeat on that business model.

Mario Galaxy 2 came out in 2008, so it wouldn't be too hard to think that they have been working on the next 3D Mario HD since late 2008.


You're way off on Super Mario Galaxy 2, it came out in May of 2010. But that's still a lot of time, by E3 SMG2 will already be more than 3 years old.

A Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate bundle for $250 would be nice.

yea I meant the deluxe model. I actually always refer to the deluxe model by default, because 8GB for dedicated hardware can't be taken serious in 2013.

Yeah the only reason to get the 8GB is to put the 50 towards a better harddrive so it comes out as 350 anyways.
