Who would have thought? Price cut = more 3DS sales for Nintendo

1 min read

Nintendo America has released a statement claiming that is has sold 185,000 3DS units since the price cut that dropped its hardware price to $169.99 in the region.

That’s a 19-day time period 260 per cent increase over the same period in July.

It’s good news for Nintendo for sure, and very much needed. Now if only Nintendo could back that up with some decent downloadable content. We didn’t get a single game in Australia this week… the same week that brought us BloodRayne and Rugby World Cup on the PSN.

According to a statement by Nintendo America:

Other Nintendo milestones reached in August include:

• Nintendo sold more than 590,000 total hardware units in August, including more than 190,000 Wii systems and more than 165,000 units of the Nintendo DS family.

• For the third month in a row, the majority of the best-selling software SKUs play on Nintendo platforms. August featured five of the top 10 and 15 of the top 20.

• So far in 2011, more than 50 million units of software have been sold for Nintendo platforms.

• In total, 540 million units of software have been sold for the Wii system and Nintendo DS family of systems combined.
