Nintendo 2DS price dropping to $99 on August 30th

Nintendo is cutting their price of the 2DS to $99 on August 30th.

Nintendo is giving a great deal for their consumers by dropping the price on their 2DS system from $129.99 to $99. This price will take effect on August 30th, just a bit before the holiday season. 

While it won't have the 3D capabilities, it is half the price of the New Nintendo 3DS XL model, and for a young child it might be the perfect present.Mario Kart 7 Pre-Installed

A great feature that is part of this $99 bundle on the 2DS system is a digital version of Mario Kart 7, which can fit every audience, from children to adults. This price cut also happens around a week after Nintendo launches a new 2DS game, Little Battlers eXperience, which has the theme of robots battling together with over 4,000 customizable parts.

In the end, the only major difference between the 2DS and 3DS is the 3D technology; the 2DS can play everything from the DS and 3DS library. Money can be tight for many families, so saving every penny is good, and Nintendo seems very sympathetic to the times.

Would you buy a 2DS over the 3DS due to the cheaper price?

    I think the 2DS for $99 is a great proposition. The 3D on the regular 3DS isn't good anyway, at least I never used it. The system can play 3DS games, so I would either just get a 2DS or a New 3DS XL. That said, the New 3DS XL is really nice and I would very much recommend it if you have the extra cash.
