Nintendo 3DS at new low $169.99 is available for Pre-order

Amazon takes orders for the $169.99 Nintendo 3DS now, ships August 12.

Last week Nintendo announced a huge 40% price-cut of the Nintendo 3DS. Instead of $249.99 you only pay $169.99 for the glasses-free 3D console. Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the Nintendo 3DS at the new low price of $169.99. The lower price goes in effect on August 12.

Kind of weird to pre-order an already released product. But I guess Amazon has to hold back shipment until the official launch date of the new low price.

It is hard to say if this drastic price-cut will dramatically increase the sales of the 3DS now. The 3DS is though already rising in the Amazon Video Game bestseller list. I can see that this lower price will help sales in the holiday season. Nintendo has planned several hot game releases for the 3DS that will support that. 

Remember that the Nintendo DSi is only $20 cheaper. If you planning to get a Nintendo DS series console, the 3DS is now the more future proof choice. This is well worth the $20. You can of course play 2D DS games on the 3DS as well.
