3DS price to be cut...

Big news from Nintendo today.  The 3DS will see a 30% cut in price world wide.   From $250 to $170.   Early adopters will 20 free games as a consolation.  The value of the games is roughly the same as the price cut.  It is a fact that though the 3DS sold like gangbusters, but has only sold around 700k since april.  Many are claiming that this is proof that its heading for another Virtual Boy failure.   Personally I think its very premature to make this judgement.   The holiday season will bring the final judgement regadibg its success or failure.  Personally I love mine.  Its been my favorite gadget purchase of the last few years.
