The 3DS isn't so much getting a price cut as much as they're offering a lower cost 2D alternative model for those that would probably have kept the 3D turned off anyway.

So they canned the cheaper option for Wii U and instead kept the expensive option going? Oh, Nintendo, so greedy.

I still want a 3DS XL, screw the 2DS, thats one of the dumbest names they could have come up with. Not to mention confusing for consumers and mostly parents. They will be at store counters asking where all the 2DS games are, and probably be dumb founded when they are told it plays 3DS games. I guess the whole 3D premise wore off quickly.

As for the Wii-U, maybe im one step closer to getting one with the price drop, I still need more interesting game announcements (or a X release date) and I will have a better idea of when I will actually buy one. Unfortunately Wind Waker alone is definitely not enough for me to buy, hell I could play my cube version if I wanted to play it that badly. But zelda anymore, meh.

Wind Waker. Now there's a game that was beautiful enough to not need an HD re-release but will look much, much prettier for it. Still though, I don't feel that any HD re-release justifies a full retail price unless there's a fucking shitload of new content that comes with it.

No the basic was 300$ before and only had 8GB so now for the same price as the old basic you get a free game and 32GB plus more accessories so it's a better deal.

In the game, or as part of the special edition? Even then, if it's not gameplay, the price isn't justified.

Yeah should not be full price for bloom lighting. Most HD releleases are discounted to 30-40$

Innit, and a lot are even less. They need to sort out the pricing of DDs this gen n'all, chargin full whack for something you don't physically have is just beyond wrong.

That 2DS may be designed for parents to buy for their little ones, but got damn that is some seriously unappealing design right thurr. It seems like a shrewd move though from Ninty though, it's nice and cheapy for them to produce and could theoretically sell bucket loads. The branding though....it will surely cause mass confusion amongst the uninformed. Again, it's a shame this thing is so unappealingly designed, as I would have liked a cheaper 3DS without 3D for myself, but I guess it wasn't designed with me in mind. Also, I feel for those poor souls who unwittingly buy one of those older DS games like Hotel Dusk that had one of those open and close the DS puzzles...does this also mean that type of puzzle will become extinct in 3DS games? I love those puzzles....damn you Nintendo!

Friggn should have waited to buy the Wii U for this price drop and Zelda.
What a waste.
Scratch that. Should have never got the Wii U in the first place. Dust collector. Makes me mad. Id sell it if i could. The wife likes to play Wii Fit and Virtual Console games.

You can just play the the 3DS games with the 3D turned off. It's not a big deal. Doesn't hurt the game. In fact they look better and run better. This thing is made for all the dumb kids over the years that break the hinges,o they made it like a double screened GBA. Also kinda looks like some kids My first tablet by leap frog or something.

Wounderful 101 is unapealing to me. Not enough guns and bromance.
Pikmin 3 looks good but id rather play other games like FF14, Last of Us and GTAV.

Overall I should have just bought the Wii U in like winter of 2014 when games i care about are out. And when I could have bought a japanese one so I can play games from stores i live by.
