Nintendo DSi Prices Are Going Down

Starting September 12th, the price for Nintendo DSi and DSi XL will be dropping $20.00 respectively. That puts the regular Nintendo DSi at 149.99 and the Nintendo DSi XL at $169.99.

“We know shoppers want to get the maximum value out of every dollar they spend,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Our new Nintendo DSi prices make it easier than ever for consumers to access the tremendous variety of games, applications and social tools on the Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL systems.”

Unfortunately, the Nintendo DS lite will still remain $129.99. I think it is interesting to note that a system that has been out for almost 6 years, no matter how much it has been “upgraded,” launched at $149.99 and will still sell well at that price. It is a true testament to how successful the Nintendo DS systems have been for Nintendo.
