3DS Price Cuts

So I was an early adopter of the 3DS. Bought it on day 1 and thought it was fun to play with. I enjoyed the light tactical RPG Ghost Recon Shadow Wars and I felt Street Fighter IV 3D was really technically impressive, though I never play it (anyone ever want to play that with me? Let me know let’s exchange friend codes and get on that).
Now that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is out I’m really loving the system. It’s making me appreciate this Zelda classic that I really resented back when it was released (even though I had preordered it at the time and got the golden N64 cartridge). The look on 3DS is upgraded enough that the ugliness of the N64’s graphics isn’t getting in the way and I can actually appreciate the game now.
Unfortunately, it turns out that I’m one of the few who picked up the system early. So Nintendo is offering ten free games to people who bought the system early as compensation due to the fact that they’re going to drop the 3DS’s price by $80. Here’s the details: http://neogaf.net/forum/showthread.php?t=438816 I don’t know that these games are really worth $80, however I’m really excited to get Metroid Fusion and Super Mario Advance 3 for free cause those are games I’ve always wanted to play. The frugal part of me wants to be upset over missing out on saving $80, but I’m more excited to play with the 10 free games I’ll be getting. Especially as it seems the Game Boy Advance ones aren’t officially confirmed to ever be something people will be able to buy (though really, it’s inevitable).
So yeah, Nintendo, this is a good way to compensate me for the early price drop, I’m digging it.
Note: I’m going to try posting this on my blog, Facebook, and Google+ just to see how comments go. I may try some other long posts in the future to see how they go too.
