We knew ambassadors in war zones tend to be short-lived, but Nintendo’s seem more akin to mayflies at this point. You may be familiar with Nintendo’s massive 3DS price cut meant to push the slow-selling handheld out of the rut it’s been inhabiting. You may even have heard of the Nintendo Ambassador program, which aims to pacify the early adopters feeling cheated by said price drop.
What you might not have heard is that Nintendo’s Ambassador program offering twenty free games to current 3DS owners ends today. “Nintendo 3DS owners who have performed the latest system update or who visit the Nintendo eShop using a wireless broadband Internet connection prior to 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11, 2011, are automatically registered for the program and will receive 20 free down loadable games before the end of the year,” according to Nintendo.
