But they didn't have to do this program for existing 3ds owners, and I tip my hat to Nintendo. Hope this jump starts sales, but just knowing the Big N is serious about doing something makes me happy. Thank you Nintendo. You've gone an important step in making a long time supporter happy. Now we just have to jump start 3rd party games somehow.
This doesn't prove it was overpriced. This price reduction could, for all anyone knows, undercut the cost price of the machine by quite a bit. I'm sure Nintendo is willing to take a loss on a console to bring in much greater profits selling their holiday lineup of games to console owners.
