Sounds about right. Nintendo wants to keep the price below the Vita.

I'm curious, just how much do retailers get if they can afford to cut the price to $200?

They don't get any reimbursements from the maufacturer unless it's an MSRP. Which makes me think this is going to be an MSRP

This is pretty much what I was expecting, but I wasnt sure if they would wait until after the holidays or not.

This thing is not selling, and I dont even think it will ever sell well at this price no matter how many great games it ends up having.

The 3D adds absolutely nothing to the gameplay, so why is it really worth it to the average consumer? Its really not that different from their DSs they already own. If this was a MUCH different machine than a DS then it might be more worth it to people, but the sales are very poor in every region. A price drop needs to happen, and honestly I think they need to get this down to $150. I think even $200 is really pushing it for what people are getting with the 3DS.

I spent it because I had the money to waste, most people dont in this economy.
One free month of PSN+, and all I have to do is hand over my personal info to hackers? That sounds like a sweet deal, where do I sign? -- 3DS 1504-5688-7256

this is a canadian walmart having a sale for 1 week.

i dont think it will actually get a price drop unless nintendo sends out a PR stating they are doing a price drop.
