Nintendo 3DS Gets Price Cut on Amazon

The very popular hand held system the Nintendo 3DS is only a few short weeks away from being released. Although the system has already been released in Japan, the rest of the world is still waiting to get their hands on it. Well the good news is that good things apparently come to those who wait. According to reports, Amazon has just recently cut a little off the price of the 3DS.

So now the big question is, how much did Amazon take off? Well apparently the 3DS is suppose to have a RRP of £230. However, the people who order it on Amazon can get a 3DS for just £197. That’s a pretty nice little price cut there.

However, all this did was start a price slashing war on the 3DS. Although the system is likely to sell out everywhere, regardless of the price, other companies have been slashing their prices as well. One company, Morrisons, was actually able to even cut Amazon’s super low price point. That’s right, people who pre-order the system through Morrisons will actually be able to get a 3DS for just £187. All of the sudden the 3DS is not looking that bad price wise.

Overall, this is likely to bring a smile to many people’s faces that were a little put off by the price tag of £230. After all of these price cuts, people are getting about £43 off this popular system. It really does put it at a price point that people were hoping for to begin with. Now the hardest thing that people have to do is wait for the system to come out. Of course, the wait is almost over, as the 3DS will be out March 25.
