Nintendo cut the price of the 3DS from $250 to $169 just a few weeks back. Now you can get it for even less. MacMall is currently selling the blue and black systems via ebay for $150 with free shipping. The new red model is notable missing and somewhat seems to say that the blue and black flavors are just sitting in warehouses, waiting to be cleared out.
The offer doesn’t seem to have an expiration date although the ebay listing does stated limited quantities. As of this post’s writing, MacMall has sold 97 3DS’ but there could be plenty to go around. Do yourself a favor, spend $20 less on the system then turn around and buy Legend of Zelda – Ocarina of Time 3D.
A rumor broke just last week that Nintendo is gear up for some 3DS add-ons, most importantly a add-on analog stick for better 3D navigation. Either way, the 3DS is not going away. This is Nintendo’s next-gen portable and they’re not likely to pull an HP and kill the device just because the consumer marketplace didn’t immediately latch on.
