Nintendo DSi and DSi XL Price Drops Incoming

With the Nintendo 3DS out for a year and at a SRP of $169.99 and able to play all DS titles, many consumers found little if any reasons to go with an older model of the DS at the same price. The DSi XL is currently $169.99 and the DSi is $149.99. However, that is soon about to change.  Starting May 20, the suggested retail price for the larger Nintendo DSi XL will be $129.99 and the suggested retail price for Nintendo DSi will be $99.99.

Nintendo is hoping that these price drops will offer a better reason to go with last models of the DS for those who are looking for an alternative to the 3DS or other handhelds on the market. As a more economical alternative, the new suggested retail prices “provide an even greater incentive to pick up the systems, and provide an easy option for parents who want to introduce younger kids to their first portable games.”
