Huge Nintendo 3DS Price Cut

Now you can own one for the low price of $169 starting Aug. 12If you're like me and have already purchased a 3DS, you're a little disappointed that this happened so soon, only six months after launch.  It wouldn't feel so bad if the 3DS was reduced by $20 or so, but in reality the 3DS is being dropped from $249 all the way to $169, can you say a 32% price cut!?!  The effective date for the price cut is right around the corner, August 12, 2011.  Current owners, all is not lost.  Nintendo realizes this is a real bummer for people who already dropped $249 so as a "thank you" Nintendo is giving owners 20 free download-able games, hey at least it's better than nothing.  You can read about the price cut and the free download-able games in detail here.  Also, here is the official 20 free game announcement by Nintendo.

So if you were on the fence about picking up a 3DS, you shouldn't be come August 12, 2011.
