Nintendo have realized that the price they set for the 3DS along with the really “not there” launch lineup were huuuuuuuuuuge factors for the system not selling as much as was expected from the Nintendo DS successor (the best selling portable of all times). About 720,000 3DS units were sold from April to June 2011… worldwide.

How about bringing the price down from $250 into a more consumer friendly $169.99 and giving early consumers a GREAT “thank you” by offering them lots of free NES/GBA games for their 3DS instead of being a douche and saying “though luck” to early adopters?

Capcom 3, Naughty Dog and Sony brought the cast of Uncharted 3 to discuss the game, Batman: Arkham City was being promoted everywhere during the convention, and last but not the least, Hideo Kojima himself making his 3rd appearance to promote the upcoming HD re-release of his famous games.
