Looks like Nintendo’s shocking price cut may have saved its disappointing 3DS just in time for Nintendo to doom it again. We’re not entirely sure how Nintendo plans to proceed after giving the 3DS enough rope to hang itself in the form of huge, ugly, platform fragmenting dock accessory, but at least for the moment, things are looking up.
This may of course just be Nintendo goosing the stats, as press releases tend to make NPD numbers as flexible as Russian gymnasts, but apparently 3DS sales are up 260% from July to August, going from around 75000 3DS units per month to 185000. We wouldn’t worry about Nintendo in the long run, however, if there’s one thing they know how to do is make money off hardware. Just look at the 3DS Lite with built-in analog stick. Well, you can’t look at it because it hasn’t even been announced yet, but give it three months.
