Not to say this is as horrible as those but when a company flat out admits price point defeat so early, it's suspicious. No one does that. Hell sony stood by the ps3 which came out at like $4,000 at launch.
I just don't like it. As a CAG an informed gamer/consumer. But enjoy yours!
You don't think it's a deal because the free games are not physical media?
My 2 cents: If anyone planned on buying a 3DS in the future as well as any of the downloadable games... it's a deal. The more games you would have bought, the better the deal.
I personally buy a lot of games online (though I too, prefer physical media), so I could easily see myself buying 7-10 of the games, bringing the price of the 3DS under $100 if you factor that in. Pretty good deal, in my books.
