Nintendo Wii U gets $50 price cut and introduces a cheaper 3DS called the 2DS


This holiday season is going to be a big event for video games. The PlayStation 4 is hitting store shelves on November 15th, the Xbox One is looming behind, and the PS3 gets a price cut. Now it’s Nintendo’s turn to show up on stage and drop the mic by announcing the price cuts for the Nintendo Wii U and the 3DS.

The Deluxe Wii U will get a price cut of $50 starting September 20, 2013, making the console retailing at $299.99.

If that’s not enough, there’s a limited Zelda version of the Deluxe set for the same price that includes the The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. Included in the Zelda Deluxe Bundle are the “GamePad controller with gold lettering, a gold Hyrule crest and gold symbols from the game; a download code for the digital version of Hyrule Historia, a book that details the chronology, history and artwork of The Legend of Zelda series, and a code that can be used to download The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD from the Nintendo eShop.”

To make the Nintendo 3DS cheaper, Nintendo has announced a new portable system called the 2DS. It’s exactly like the 3DS, except the games will only be in 2D. This will make it cheaper with a $129.99 price point. The Nintendo 2DS will be available in Red or Blue on October 12, 2013.

I’m more inclined to get a 2DS now, since I can live without 3D. Can you live without 3D?
