With the leeway granted by the huge price decrease on the current model, they could easily have the new SKU at around $200.

Time-wise, I'd expect it around summer of next year with the initial announcement coming shortly after the new year.

If not a new 3DS model, then at the very least alternate colors/bundle packs.

I've got to admit, I expect the Flare Red to hit this holiday season in the USA now. Beyond that I'm unsure, but due to the battery life I'm not sure I would say no to upgrading my current 3DS into a newer model.

Rofl.



With the price drop, Nintendo is now taking a small loss for each unit sold. I believe they would have to first turn a profit again before even considering a revision, or they'll lose even more revenue.

Well, what better way to turn a profit than to offer a full-price "deluxe" 3DS with a bigger screen, better battery, etc? They could probably get away with $220.
