Submitted by apprentice (208) at 4:00PM PST on March 20, 2011


Nintendo handheld tops PlayStation 3 as online retailer's best prerelease performer with 20 percent more reservations and a week left before launch. While the March 25 launch of the 3DS in the UK is likely to draw a significant number of eager gamers camping out overnight to get their hands on the new handheld, one retailer has found that more customers than ever before are willing to order online and wait for the mail carrier to make the rounds.

Nintendo 3DS and Historical Handheld Pricing

Gamespot - January 30, 2011


Submitted by apprentice (208) at 2:13AM PST on January 30, 2011


Taking a trip down memory lane with Nintendo's previous handhelds we see one basic trend. If we throw out the outlier that is the Virtual Boy, Nintendo largely stuck to sub-$100 price points until the Nintendo DS was released. At that point the company moved up to the $150 and $170 ranges, with the DSi XL at $190. The Game Boy Micro was an update to the Game Boy Advance, hence its lower price point.

Nintendo UK Head of Communications Robert Saunders recently responded to a post on MaxConsole, which corralled a number of Twitter users complaining that their time with the 3DS was causing headaches and dizziness. Saunders explained, "When viewing any kind of 3D images (TV, movies etc.), some people might experience minor discomfort." He added, "The effects are short term and have no lasting effect, in fact most players can continue after taking a short break."

3DS price drops to $170 on August 12

Joystiq - July 28, 2011


Submitted by TheSmilkman (53) at 8:58AM PST on July 28, 2011


Nintendo has just announced that the price on the 3DS will drop to $169.99 stateside on August 12. A similar cut in Japan (effective August 11) will take the system from 25,000 Yen (around $317) to 15,000 Yen ($190). We don't yet have a specific price for a corresponding European cut, but Nintendo tells Eurogamer the price will drop by "about a third."

3DS past 4 million in US, Mario sells another 2 million

Joystiq - January 3, 2011


Submitted by TheSmilkman (53) at 6:25AM PST on January 4, 2012


All things considered, 2011 was a pretty solid year for the 3DS. Despite an incredibly slow adoption rate at launch and the resultant corporate turmoil, buyers on the fence were eventually persuaded by a massive price drop and 3D remakes of yesteryear's classics. By the end of 2011, Nintendo had sold "more than 4 million" of its stereoscopic wunderkind to US consumers, as well as 1 million units each of Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7.
