I find the price drop to be absolutly unnecessary.

1. First of all their weak launch is anything but a factor to blame on the poor performance of sales that led to this disaster. Why couldn't they have not waited till after their main 1st party games sell out since they didn't give them a chance to do so and then decide from there if a price drop was necessary?


2. Most importantly game systems tend to sell better overall during a holiday season and since the 3DS hasn't even been through one yet (independence day doesn't count) I think they should of waited like I said and decide to drop if it continued to be bad as it is now.

So you want the 3DS to be more expensive?

I never once implied that. All I am saying was they never gave the system a shot with its 1st party games and holiday seasons. For all we know it could of sold just as well if it stayed at 250.

I do think it would have done alright if it stayed at $250.

But $170 IS better. Nintendo is always better off being cheaper than the competition.

If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 222

at least someone understands the way I see it they are backing out too early to tell how this will play out. 4 months is anything but a long time to tell how something will be.

they don't want to repeat game cube, and besides, the cut allows ppl to afford even more game, thus increasing sales overall lolz

August is earlier than I expected, but a price drop was going to happen by the end of the year. There's no way Nintendo would've taken on the Vita with a same priced handheld.

thats like saying two guys got in a gun fight. First guy brought his gun but forgot to load it up at home and the 2nd guy shot him in the leg. The first guy complained that he would of done better if he loaded it ahead of time.

In that example the games are the bullets. If the 3DS (gun) was loaded with games (bullets) dont you think that fight would of been more fair play?

No, but I do think that was the worse analogy I've ever read.

That's an awful analogy. Who cares, I see it as necessary because it'll help.
