Discounts on the 3DS for Black Friday 2013
Nintendo's portable 3-D gaming console called the 3DS hasn't been as popular as Nintendo hoped. The portable game console has sold a decent numbers but hasn't sold the way previous generations of the Nintendo DS portable have. We believe that Nintendo will take advantage of the holiday shopping season during Black Friday 2013 to discount the 3DS.
Currently the Nintendo 3DS sells for about $170 at a variety of retailers. We expect to see resellers reduce the price to around $120 during Black Friday 2013. The holiday shopping season will be a good opportunity for Nintendo to increase the market share for its 3-D portable and they can make up money from discounted prices on the back in with new software purchases.
