If you’ve been thinking about buying a 3DS then you might want to hold off until August 12th when it is expected that there will be a price cut of roughly a third off RRP across Europe.
“Nintendo of Europe will be reducing the European trade price of Nintendo 3DS to retailers by around a third from 12th August 2011, as part of a global trade price reduction initiative,” Nintendo told Eurogamer.
Don’t be angry though if you bought a 3DS at launch price as those who’ve done so will be eligible for the new 3DS Ambassador Programme. The programme will allow those who paid the launch price for the 3DS to download ten NES games and ten Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games for free.
To register as a 3DS Ambassador you must connect to the Nintendo eShop before August 12th.
