It was recently announced that due to struggling sales figures of the 3DS, Nintendo made the difficult decision of ultimately dropping the price on their newest handheld console. After the newly implemented price tag of $169.99, the public rejoiced, with sales of the 3DS going up 260%. So the only logical move would be releasing a new color for their older DS model.
Nintendo just announced that on September 18th, the DSi XL will be available in a Metallic Rose. It will also be the same price as the 3DS. Maybe the Metallic Rose is suppose to entice their female audience, but I can’t even fathom a female who would buy a older console in a pink color when the newer console is available at the same price. Seriously Nintendo, what’s your deal?
