Nintendo apologizes about 3DS price cutRemember the price cut for the Nintendo 3DS that happened last week? You can imagine how the early adopters must have felt about the significant price cut for the console merely months after it went on sale. Well, Nintendo’s CEO, Satoru Iwata, has come forward about the whole situation, and admits about the 3DS not doing as well as predicted in terms of sales. The reason for the price cut has been to reassure “software creators and those on the retail side that are not confident that the Nintendo 3DS is a worthy successor to the DS and will achieve a similarly broad user base.” Consumers aren’t the only ones losing hope in the console – developers and retailers feel it too. So this price cut could possibly reinvigorate the sales of the 3DS. And just in case you missed the memo – if you were one of the early adopters of the glasses-free 3D console, you’ll be entitled to 20 free games if you log on to the 3DS eShop before August 10, which is a pretty good deal if you were planning on forking out money for those titles. Any of you planning to buy the console at its original price to get the free games or will you be waiting for the price drop before getting it?
