Nintendo Cuts Price Of Nintendo 3DS

After a lacklustre launch, Nintendo has decided to officially drop the price of the Nintendo 3DS in a desperate attempt to build some momentum.

The price will be cut first in Japan, where it will receive a 40 percent cut. It will be reduced from 20,000 Yen (£160) to 15,000 Yen (£118).

Similar cuts are said to be on the way for both North America and Europe, but Nintendo will be hoping that their first proper wave of first-party titles will also help to spur sales.
