3DS sales picking up

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Nothing like a good price cut
Although Nintendo’s 3DS hasn’t had the greatest of times since it launched, it seems like nothing spells sales like a nice price cut.

Nintendo dropped 3DS pricing to $170 and although GameStop and Best Buy declined to comment as of yet, Target confirmed it is definitely getting better. Unfortunately, actual data is scarce and Target refused to shed more light.

Target spokesperson only said that the company is pleased with increased sales and that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is the best selling title. Not much of a surprise though, seeing as how Zelda has a huge following.

We guess that we’ll know soon enough whether this is just a temporary effect of the price cuts or Nintendo’s return to handheld console power.

I really don't think that this device will gain any success, the original DS banked on having a touchscreen, which was new to gaming in it's era, today EVERY smartphone has a much much better touchscreen, and sticking with a resistive style screen and a stylus was a terrible mistake. The 3D screen is an absolute gimmick, and an undeveloped one at that seeing as far more refined versions of the parallax barrier type display are starting to pop up in other devices with respectable display resolutions. The hardware it's self is just plain bad and inexcusable for this generation. The 3DS really has nothing new going for it. Nintendo makes nothing but cheap quality gimmick products these days, and it's amazing that people are finally realizing this.
