It gives you 20 free VC games if you purchased the 3DS for $249.99 and use the E-Shop before August 11th 11:59PM.
Some of the VC Game giveaways may not even be made public..
Yes, but do you know why they're doing this. It's not going very well with Nintendo:
- Wii game sales are terrible.
- 3DS game sales are terrible.
- Nintendo stock value dropped 21%. That's millions of dollars gone.
Not true. When you buy an iPod Touch or iPhone, you not only get a better screen, but better battery and faster hardware than the 3DS, but also iOS which pummels Nintendo's tiny OS in every way. The 3DS's actual output is hurt severely by the double-drawing to make 3D. And a lot of stuff, including Unreal Engine 3, doesn't even run on 3DS because they cheaped out on hardware and doesn't have the required features.
now that they've noticed that selling lower hardware at higher prices(*cough* Apple *cough*) is absurd.
How long will 3D stay interesting? So far it's been everything of a gimmick. It's better to have better graphics on a much higher resolution, physics, AI, networking and level design than to have 3D.
Well, maybe in terms of graphics, but the Vita can't do real 3D can it?
