I'm actually kinda surprised that there's any type of a significant discount on a first party Nintendo game from one their major franchises, only months after release.:-k

Same. First party nintendo titles never usually get sales because they are always being bought at full price so there is no need for one. Its equally surprising that there is a sale so early on a game with a status such as ocarina of time.

Is not a price drop, is a sale price. Price drop would be a new lower MSRP. I was hoping the entire last week for a new sale price on this game. 23% off sounds good enough for me. I ordered it, thanks OP.

Edit: Haha I like that you changed the wording to prevent stupid comments like mine. Thumbs up for you!

I don't even think steel diver or Pilotwings resort has dropped in price/ had this kind of sale.

If you just got a 3DS i'd say get it, even if you played it to death like I did on N64 , it was worth the $40 I bought the first day B^)

The mistake was mine, it was clearly not a price drop. I figure I better fix it so I don't sound like an idiot.

Pretty sure the under $39.99 prices for Zelda 3DS reflects on the poor 3DS sales themselves. No way Nintendo will even think of lowering the MSRP for a few years, but if the 3DS bombs, retailers won't stick with MSRP.

I understand that Nintendo games tend to sell extremely well, but this game fell off the NPD list not even a month after its release. New Super Mario Bros. DS sold more than OoT in its second week on store shelves-- that is unfortunate. I think you are right, lutz. Poor sales of both go hand in hand.

On topic: I was considering biting on this, but a friend told me that another rumor started around the same time speculation began for a supposed 3DS price cut. It basically said that Nintendo would be lowering the price of all software as well ($30 standard I suppose, dropping the price of DS games, too). I think it seems unlikely, guess we will see by the end of the year. $40 for a handheld game is a lot to ask for, especially considering console games are $20 more, and I rarely play my 3DS anywhere besides my home.

I went to Gamestop today and was amazed that Pilot Wings and Steel Diver were $30. I am so tempted to order this since I know this is probably as low as it's going to get. I wish SSFIV 3D was on sale.

Edit:

But New Super Mario also came out on a system with probably over 20 times as many units out there.

Yes, hence the second part of my statement. :applause: NSMB also came out five years ago. The fact that OoT (a remastered version of one of the greatest games of all time) couldn't even outsell a five year old game just goes to show how little buzz the system has/had before the price drop.

Awesome, lol.

But yeah, I can't help but think I'm partly responsible for this price. I submitted the tip about the lower price from Kmart.com (which also asks for the shipping cost which is 99¢). I'm guessing I wasn't the only person who sent this in, though.

Even with more systems out there Zelda never does Mario numbers. Zelda games are more aimed at hardcore gamers, especially OoT, Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess. The fact that other first party games such as New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart sell so many copies allows Nintendo to make games such as Mario Galaxy, Zelda and Metroid.

I finally picked up a 3DS since it's hella of a handheld for $169; and a steal with the GS trade in for my original DS and a PSP I hardly touch. I also picked this up (thanks OP) because I know this IS a SALE and not an official price drop!!! This is a great game and really enjoyed how they did the 3D on the system.

Agreed. It should still do better than a game from five years ago, though. Anyways, this is going off topic, so we should probably just drop it XD. Looking forward to finally playing OoT again-- I once faked being sick when it originally came out so I could collect heart pieces all day.

It happens quite a lot, just not on everything. In this case...well, it's a remake and it's on a brand new system, so I can't imagine sales are stellar.

I picked this up during the b2g1 last week, and the game is darn beautiful =D just wish it had been on this price instead. Still waiting on TWEWY, but Chrono Trigger is wonderful too~

This is a great price on LoZ, buy it =D
