Ruh-roh...

Yeah, the 3DS is kinda screwed. Nintendo ain't king of the hill no more.

I've been enjoying the festive pop of fanboy heads exploding all morning :D


So what do you guys think? A whole 'nother decade at the bottom of the heap on both console and handheld fronts?

Another decade? The DS was like... the best console to own these past 10 years.

Tell me, is this your first time leaving the Vita boards since its price was announced?

Please don't turn this into the Vita board.

I dunno how lowering the price means that the system will be unsuccesful.

Run! Run away!

You wish. This is an incredibly smart move, and if they pull it off, the 3DS's lead will be big enough that the Vita will have no hope of winning.

Perhaps we should all give Nintendo a hand for caring about the players more than the profit.

Feels like a hypocrite for not owning Nintendogs+cats. Wanting the 3DS and all its glory.

I'd think it was a panic button too if it wasn't history repeating itself.

The difference:

Sony didn't make profit until after the Slim
Nintendo will be making profit from the $170 3DS.


It doesn't matter about the place, it matters about the amount of $$$
