Their profits have been falling for a wee while now from the impact the iphone has had on sales of the 3ds, so they need to make this worth it. Too old and wise to strawberry float up surely.
What impact? The 3DS has sold twice as many as the DS did at this point!
Because of a huge price cut.
I never said it wasn't. Timeghost suggested that 3DS isn't selling well. I'm pointing out that it is. People give the iPhone too much credit. It's expanding the market, not eating it. Total market share goes down, but sales can still continue to increase, all it means is that the market is getting bigger.
Of course, I have my doubts as to whether the iPhone should even count. Mobile phones have had games on since 1998, yet we never called the Nokia 3210 a gaming machine.
