It has been nearly one month since Nintendo cut the price of the 3DS by $80.00 in North America, and judging by the numbers released today, this marketing strategy looks to have worked. According to the NPD Group, the 3DS was the Number 2 best selling platform in August with roughly 185,000 units being sold since the price cut that occurred on the 12th. This is a 260 percent jump from July and a fantastic number to see for the once stalling handheld.
In true Nintendo form, a list of other feats for August were released to display that their other products are not too bad off, either.
I am happy to see the 3DS turning around, and with the busy holiday season to look forward to, this upward trend looks to continue for quite some time.Related Articles for this post below:
