Didn't Nintendo just declare there wasn't going to be a price drop?

Things change, it was a month ago maybe they swallowed their pride? Just like Microsoft said they wouldn't remove the DRM and always online, but did it just a week later.

They denied a 3DS price drop too before it happened. Sony denied a price drop for the PS3 a few months after launch too and then dropped the price $100. All companies deny price drops because sales would halt while people waited for the drop.

Seems like Nintendo flat out lied on this one. I get that they want to compete with the PS4 and Xbox1, and that's likely the reason for the price drop. It was not long ago at all that they declared there would be no price drop claiming the console was selling at a loss. To just flat out lie about the price drop just damages their credibility, which is not something they need.

If they said a price drop was coming months later, what little sales they are getting now wouldn't happen, since people would just wait till then. There's nothing wrong with Nintendo lying about this.

this price drop is a kneejerk reaction to the $199 PS3
