It's kinda sad that only after 4 months, the 3DS is now officially a failure. Some Nintendo purist (shameless fanboys) will deny such rubbish, but let's face it.
In the world of retail, a price cut that deep means it failed.
There's a lot of factors that caused the 3DS to fail and a lot of people that grew up with the original NES can agree with me. There just isn't any room for a portable Nintendo handheld in their lives anymore.
Here's a silent salute to the greatest Nintendo hardware ever made. Still pretty fresh out of it's box from the 80s, the thing still works (and I still suck at Tetris).
I would've kept the batteries... but they tend to leak after 2 decades...
