Nintendo slashes 2DS handheld’s cost to $100 RRP
Nintendo has announced a price cut for its already super-cheap Nintendo 2DS handheld console. As a result of the announced price reduction, the cost of the Nintendo 2DS has dropped to only $100 RRP. The original cost of the handheld, which was launched in the US two years back, was $130.
According to the price-reduction announcement made by Nintendo, the 2DS handheld will be available for just $100, with effect from August 30. In addition to the price reduction, Nintendo has also said that all the 2DS units sold will come with a free downloadable copy of Mario Kart 7.
The Nintendo 2DS price-reduction announcement means that the entry barrier for 3DS gaming has dropped significantly; thereby making it much more affordable for gamers to jump to the 3DS bandwagon; and enabling parents to buy a cheap distraction for their children.
Though the 2DS handheld does not have the 3DS's signature stereoscopic 3D and its clamshell folding design, it still is a must-buy handheld console - especially at the $100 price - for gamers who like to play games which do not make particularly strong use of the 3D feature. These games include hit titles like Pokemon X and Y, Mario Kart 7 and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
About the drop in 2DS's cost to $100, Scott Moffitt - Nintendo of America's executive VP of sales and marketing - said: "At a suggested retail price of $99.99, Nintendo 2DS is an even more attractive introductory option for first-time gamers."
