Nintendo announces strong 3DS sales in the United States.

Since August 12 the Nintendo 3DS is selling for only $169.99. Nintendo has cut the price by 40% after disappointing sales. Now Nintendo announced that according to NPD Group, the Nintendo 3DS sold 235,000 units in August in the United States. This made it the second best-selling gaming console for the month. The Xbox 360 still outsold the 3DS. The sales increase is though 260% compared to the same period a month earlier.

“Consumers are responding very positively to the new suggested retail price of $169.99 for the Nintendo 3DS,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With Star Fox 64 3D and the new Flame Red color launching tomorrow, and Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 arriving later this year, Nintendo 3DS will offer consumers cutting-edge entertainment and tremendous value this holiday season.”

The Nintendo DS still reached 165,000 units in August. If somebody wants a Nintendo, I am of course recommending now the 3DS. It is only $20 more than the DSi, but you get a future proof console and can if you want play in 3D.
