    Looks like the 3DS isn't selling as well as Nintendo had hoped.
    Press release
    Early adopters are getting 20 free games so I won't complain too hard.
    The original DS sold something like 150 million units in its lifetime after having a slow first few years so maybe they can rebound.

    That's awesome! Sounds like early adopting in this case will actually pay off.

    I'm stoked for free games.

    For the $169, I might actually pick up another one.

    wooo time to buy one on the 11th, get the games, then get a price reduction the next day! (most places give you a 7 day price reduction guarantee)

    You guys gotta clue in me in to what games to buy, I have no idea. My 7 year old has one, but she's a Mario/Pokemon lover.
