Nintendo revealed the announcement of a price drop for the 3DS going from $249.99 to $169.99 starting August 12th. Anyone who has connected to the Nintendo eShop by August 11th will be eligible for 10 free NES games and 10 free GBA games. If you do not own a 3DS it is going to be a great time to buy one. You can read more about it in Nintendo's press release here. This is obviously to combat lack luster sales and the PlayStation Vita. I honestly did not see a price drop coming this soon. I also definitely did not see the NES games and GBA games either.
