The DS gets a price drop…and Goldensun gets a date.

Nin­ten­do announced this morn­ing that the DSI and the DSI XL will be get­ting a $20 price drop. The lite holds at 129.99, the DSI at 149.99, and the DSI XL at 169.99. This is what Cam­mie Dun­away had to said via Kotaku,
                                            “We know shop­pers want to get the max­i­mum val­ue out of every dol­lar they spend,” said Cam­mie Dun­away, Nin­ten­do of Amer­i­ca’s exec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of Sales & Mar­ket­ing. “Our new Nin­ten­do DSi prices make it eas­i­er than ever for con­sumers to access the tremen­dous vari­ety of games, appli­ca­tions and social tools on the Nin­ten­do DSi and Nin­ten­do DSi XL sys­tems.”
This sounds to me like Nin­ten­do clear­ing out their stock of DS’s dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son to make room for the 3DS com­ing ear­ly next spring. Nice time to get one if you haven’t already, but if your think­ing about upgrad­ing there real­ly, at this point in time, is no rea­son to.
Nin­ten­do hit us with one more piece of juicy infor­ma­tion this morn­ing, Gold­en Sun Dark Dawn was giv­en a release date, Novem­ber 29th. So one more game I have to get dur­ing the Christ­mas rush, oh gam­ing indus­try you know how to drain my wal­let dry.
