In a surprising announcement on Thursday morning, Nintendo declared that their latest handheld, the 3DS, will see an $80 price cut next month. The 3DS is currently Nintendo’s flagship console, as the company hoped to ride the wave of success left by the DS. This latest handheld was released in March, which makes the announcement of a price cut unprecedentedly early, and says much more about the company than just a cheaper price point for a handheld. It says that Nintendo is in for a rough financial road.
