Nintendo 3DS gets a massive price drop

Not much of a surprise really but for it to drop this much so soon is still a bit astounding. Nintendo has instituted one of the swiftest and deepest price cuts for a handheld in recent memory.

The glasses free 3D handheld only went on sale earlier this year costing around $249.99, but as of August 12, 2011, the price will be slashed all the way down to $169.99.

For anyone who was on the fence about buying a Nintendo 3DS, this is a huge motivation to buy now. We are giving shoppers every incentive to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, from an amazing new price to a rapid-fire succession of great games.

I still advise you to WAIT AND NOT BUY THE…
