Settle down, now, it’s not getting a price cut. Nintendo is just doing that whole “controlling the conversation” thing it’s famous for. As are Sony and Microsoft for that matter. Along with most corporations on the planet. Hold on, we got sidetracked there for a minute. Ah yes, the 3DS apparently had two big-time hurdles to clear.
The first one is fairly easy to guess, it’s the reason I don’t own a 3DS, apart from the splitting headaches: not that many Nintendo games for the thing. At least according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, channeling Nintendo marketing research. The second? A lackluster online presence which only just started gradually rolling out, but still lacks movie trailers, Netflix streaming and other promises Nintendo made before launch. But things are looking up with the Zelda Ocarina of Time remake in stores and with the eShop up and running. Also, if you happen to glance over at the price if you see one in a store. It’s really really expensive, is what we’re saying.
