We all know 3DS sales have slowed everywhere, especially the US. Nintendo hopes to alleviate this with the New 3DS in 2015. In Japan the New 3DS is the same price as the original 3DS and XL, 15,000 Yen and 18,800 yen respectively. So that would point at the New 3DS costing the same as orignal 3DS and XL, $169/$199
But is this good enough? With the US sales already dropping for the platform, should Nintendo aggresively price this new hardware at say $150 for the New 3DS and $180 for the new XL? They could eliminate the $130 2DS by doing this and clear up some brand confusion.
What do you think? Obviously we'd all want a lower price but what makes sense for Nintendo and what do you think they'll actually do?
