Nintendo 3DS: Now only $169.99. This is a $80 price drop (Was $249.99)!

Starting August 12, 2011, Nintendo will drop the price of the Nintendo 3DS portable gaming system from $249.99 to only $169.99! Costco dropped the price to $169.99 about 2 weeks ago. This is $80 cheaper then when it first launched a couple months ago! The Nintendo 3DS is available in 3 colors: Aqua Blue, Cosmo Black and Flames Red (new).

I haven’t played with one yet, but I plan on going to Future Shop this weekend and see if I can play around with one and would consider buying one if it wows me. I’m a big time gamer.

The 3DS is home to the classic Nintendo DS controls with a handful of significant differences that completely change the face of portable gaming. It still has the classic controls, as well as the touchscreen and stylus. But it also has a 3D display that’s 10% larger, and a Circle Pad. Together, they create an experience that comes to life with never-seen-before detail and the accuracy of a console gaming system.
