Competition in a marketplace usually ends up benefiting the consumer and it seems that Nintendo is ready to throw a curveball at Sony’s PlayStation Vita launch. If a consumer were to go to GameStop right now and pick up the Nintendo 3DS it would only cost them $149.99 rather than the normal price of $169.99.
This $20 price drop is currently only lasting for a week and GameStop is the only retailer selling the handheld at this discount. But it is interesting to see such a deal occurring right before the launch of another dedicated gaming handheld. Will things get a bit more viscous between the two companies in the coming months? We shall see.
