      1. Either that or rid the dock, replace the grip with the charging model (which I still don’t understand WTF they didn’t just design/bundle that one only) and bundle it with a 4GB SD card and a game (Either MK8D/Splatoon2/Mario/Zelda) for $249.99. That’s more than fair enough to warrant a purchase and succeed the 3DS.

      2. Japan is ignoring the much cheaper 3DS lol.

        Price doesn’t seem to be an issue. Maybe it’s discontinued there this year and worldwide next year.

      3. Also when the 3DS was $250 it needed a steep price cut in its first year to really start selling. The Switch is $50 more expensive and has no problem selling. Clearly people see what it can do and the games it has as more than worth it.

      1. You sound like you are saying Zelda/Mario/Splatoon are the only good games…well minus Splatoon 2 because it’s a port of Splatoon in disguise without much change. There’s L.A Noire, Doom, Skyrim, Rocket League, Sonic Mania and much more.

      2. You see something else in that charts other than Mario Zelda and Splatoon? Those games have already been bought by the majority of people. At least there is a need for a new big game per month. Plus some other lower profile AA game.
