I honestly think a price drop that big is going to scare people away...

Actually, according to past history, cheaper consoles sell better lol. There's no justification of otherwise from a business standpoint -_-

Tell that to N64. Gamecube. Dreamcast.

Panic? What panic? Millions of 3DS units have been sold already, and Nintendo has pretty much flat-out admitted that they were just milking the early adopter market for extra money. And as others have already pointed out above, price drops almost always cause a spike of new purchases.

This sounds far more like shrewd business rather than panic.

I don't remember reading about them admitting they were milking the early adopters. Care to post a link?

The DS had a price drop and I bought it then. Despite already having a 3DS now, I saw the benefit of the DS price drop and of this 3DS price drop. However, when I bought the 3DS after the price drop, I wasn't given 20 free games. I think Nintendo has an incredible plan for both sides.
"the hell!?"

Nintendo cut the price early enough that anyone who actually would be worried would probably stop caring by the holidays.

I know me and my friend are picking up a 3DS come price cut time. Good decision from Nintendo methinks.
