    In Japan, I think the 3DS has been getting steamrolled by the PSP. In Western countries, not so much. The PSP is pretty much already dead everywhere that isn't Japan.

    As an early adopter (Day 1), i can say that i am not mad in the least. Free games is quite awesome [​IMG].

    Atleast they dont leave customers out to dry like Sony and the PSP's (Namely the GO)

    Erhmm, well it was already sold for £154 on amazon.

    If they officially cut it down to around £150, expect it for much lower on online retailers [​IMG].

    But I would guess £129.99
    and that you can grab it for £100 on amazon.
    Meh, I feel like I wasted my money on getting it. All the hype.. I coudnt bare it and now the 3DS log shows I played less than 8 hours in 3 months time lol...

    Trying to fix the merge mess. Pm'ed Costy. I'll let him decide whether to merge this or lock and link to the other discussion. I'll clean my redundant posts afterwards. And yeah, merged it wrong and reversed it. I don't know how that happened (must have merged them in the wrong order).

    Are you unaware of the free games with the Go thing that happened due to the lack of sales of what should have been the ultimate PSP revision? With every new purchase, people got something like three or five or ten free PSP games off a select (none too shabby) list. Of course, then you had to wait for all of them to download as they slowly ate most of your Go's internal memory.

    I am, but they didnt apply for early adopters. I mean, i didnt pay for my GO (Nor do i regret it), but it was still pretty shady of them to exclude anyone who purchased it before a drop.

    Dont think that would quite work out [​IMG].

    But, quickly check GAMESTOP or whatever gaming store and see how much the trade-in value is as of now lol.

    awesome 20 games to have on my console where some ill actually play. This beats the psp/ps3 gift by a landslide and the fact they are saying the GBA games wont be up for sale makes me happy I early adopted.

    Sales for the Go were abysmal at that point in time. I don't think Sony thought the backlash was going to be so bad for excluding what were current owners of the system. I don't really remember any backlash, but that's probably due to the whole abysmal sales thing. Not like Go sales really picked up anyways until it was hacked. It really shows what the average PSP owner has in mind (and I'm sure Sony noticed too with the sudden increase in sales and new hacks for their portable. I figure that they just gave up trying to stop piracy.).

    lol @ the mention of the Welcome Back program. The Welcome Back program was to keep people happy. Customers didn't lose anything other than online time. Sony didn't have to give them anything. It was a courtesy, though a necessary one to keep some people on the systems.

    Edit: Good lord that typo was a bad one.

    I am not a English user and cant write a good story for Gbatemp, I only share a big news as soon as possible here after I get it. We are doing a same thing here but I really care about duplicate discussion thread problem, to get a credit is not my goal for share news at Gbatemp, I have lots of credit from Gbatemp many years ago XD, thank you for merge the discussion and keep update the official news for worldwide price cut details.

    P.S.: I will EDIT the first page to notice members for full story at official NEWS thread.
