Nintendo to drop price of DSi models by a massive $50

From next week (yes the same day as Ocarina of Time comes out) the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL will receive a $50 price drop on both models. The DSi will now retail for $199 (down from $249) and the XL will go for a much cooler $249 (down from $299).

This now makes the gap between the Nintendo 3DS a huge $100 and could have both a positive and negative effect. Positive, you’re getting a DSi and DSi XL for cheap which are still selling great. Negative, it’s now a whole lot more money for people to choose a DSi/XL over the 3DS.

Anyone holding out for a DSi going to pick one up now?
