Nintendo has announced drastic cuts to the price of both the DSi and DSi XL hand-held gaming devices. Yet the 3DS remains at a price that leaves it vulnerable to competitor attacks.
Nintendo has announced a $100 price drop for the 3DS. But don't be too angry if you paid full price for the device that has only been on the market only four months, Nintendo is offering some compensation.
The DSi XL is the supersized hand-held gaming device from Nintendo. Launching next month Nintendo are hoping to grab a whole new demographic under their influence. Today Nintendo Australia announced the DSi XL pricing.
Perhaps poor marketing is holding back Wii U sales for Nintendo. As Spike TV’s GTTV host Geoff Keighley noted on Twitter, a new campaign from Nintendo is using flyers to show just how awesome the Wii U is.
Except, instead of going after console rivals Nintendo decided to aim its attack at its own, older-generation console the Wii.
Nintendo has dropped the price of the Wii console to $129.99. Of course, this is to keep pace with holiday demand and maintain an edge in a market that’s turned more difficult for the gaming company.
The value package includes a black console with Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort on a single disc, along with a black Wii remote and Nunchuk controller.
Nintendo are taking the new hand-held 3DS, the glasses-free 3D gaming device, on a tour around Australia (well most of it anyway). This will give people a chance to try out the magical 3D effect, and start saving their cash for the March 31st release date.
