NEWS: Nintendo DS Lite Price Cut

Nintendo of America has announced that beginning June 5th, the DS Lite will have a pricetag of $99.99!  This $30 price cut may be a bit past due with Nintendo’s DSi ($149.99) and DSi XL ($169.99) receiving a $20 price cut last August.

Nintendo of America has also announced special “red packaged” Mario titles.  New Super Mario Bros, Mario Kart DS , Super Mario 64 DS, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, and Mario Party DS will soon be sporting the red “greatest hits” look.

Nintendo President, Reggie Fils Aime, explained this move to be helpful for new customers: “This new price point will introduce Nintendo DS Lite to even more consumers, and the new red packaging will make it easy for them to find their favorite Mario titles.”

We have come to expect that a “greatest hits” title comes with a price drop, but there has been no official word that these Mario-hits will sport a new price tag.
