Nintendo DSi and DSi XL to Drop in Price Soon

Nintendo DSi and DSi XL to Drop in Price Soon

Today Nintendo announced what could only be another step to prepare for the 3DS launch: the DSi and DSi XL would be receiving a price drop effective September 12th.

While this might seem like boring news to some, this is actually a big deal. The DS family is the best-selling video game system in the history of the U.S. and worldwide. Having a price drop on such a popular item right before the holiday shopping season is a smart move on Nintendo’s part, and I’m sure it will payoff.

Currently the DSi XL retails for $189.99, but come September 12th, it will be dropped to $169.99. The DSi retails for $169.99, and that will also see a $20.00 drop, bringing it down to $149.99. The DS Lite will remain at $129.99, but at that price, it’s still a phenomenal deal. With these nifty discounts, we can probably expect to see some pretty nice bundles coming our way.

There are still rumors flying around of a drop in price for the Wii, and while nothing has been confirmed, it looks like we will just have to wait and see.
