Yes it has a lot to do with bad sales, but I wouldn't be surprised if we'll be seeing a new 3DS model next year with better battery life, slimmer, better button and stylus lay out, etc.

Did you not notice how annoyed everyone is just with the price drop? If Nintendo did THAT, there would be boycotts all around, they're not that stupid.

No way, nintendo for the most part are smart marketers...

That would be like digging their own coffin and give you the tools to seal them in.

Can people please STOP expecting a smaller remodel? The 3DS is roughly the same size as the DS Lite or DSi... just how freaking small are your pockets?

Yeah, they started working on a redesign in January. Should be shipping soon.

Which is next year, so you're kind of contradicting yourself with your post before that.

Nintendo seems hell-bent on moving 3DS units quick, so it just says to me they want to make room for a model that appeals more to people
