If you bought a 3DS or a 3DS XL during this past week, thinking you were scoring a good deal, I hope you held on to that receipt.

htz from Cheap Ass Gamer has learned that a blue 3DS XL bundle which includes Mario Kart 7 will appear in stores next week for $199.99. This is similar to a bundle that Europeans received recently but with a white XL instead. Also like the European bundle, the copy of MK7 is pre-installed on the device.

Though the XL bundle is pretty much a certainty, news of a vanilla 3DS discount is a little hazier. htz further states that the 3DS will be dropped to $139.99 in a couple of weeks in at least one store, while another CAG poster named Hollywood claims that Target will sell the 3DS for $129.99 during the first week of December. Probably true, but take these nuggets with a grain of salt anyway.

Could Nintendo be trying to push 3DS sales in light of its average performance lately? Maybe, although I think a better solution to entice more buyers would be to drop software MSRP across the board down to $29.99. Forty bucks per game is such a turn-off.

When I first heard of the upcoming 3DS theme concept, I wasn't super hopeful. I thought that Nintendo would probably put up a few major ones (Zelda and Mario), and completely forget about it over the course of a few weeks. Bu...more

Sears' 3DS ad listing is absolutely ridiculous

I've seen some absurd ad spots but this one may take the cake. Sears has posted a 3DS advertisement that not only sounds like it belongs in the 1920s (step right up!), but also contains some purely false information. It start...more

Everyone is fabulous in this Japanese New 3DS commercial

Nintendo has a New 3DS TV spot making the rounds, and it shows off some strange new outfits for some iconic Nintendo characters. I'm talking top hat Link, King Pikachu, and a Bowser that's too swanky for his own good. In all...more
