Nintendo 3DS early adopters - update now or lose outBy Ryan Noik 11 August 2011 | Categories: news
Time is running out for early adopters of the Nintendo 3DS to take advantage of the company’s Ambassadors programme, and receive exclusive free games.
The program will give current 3DS owners access to twenty games, but only if they perform a system update before 23:59 pm (Central European Time) tonight. This update makes 3DS owners eligible for the programme, while a second update, which will grant users access to their free games, will need to be performed later in the year.
From tomorrow, (August 12th), the 3DS will receive a price cut locally, giving it an new RRP OF R1900. New buyers will not be eligible for the Ambassador program.
The company explained that, never in Nintendo’s history, has it dropped a system’s trade price so significantly less than six months after launch. “We are aware this may cause you, the loyal fans who supported Nintendo 3DS from the beginning, to lose trust in us, and this is not our intention in any way. All of you who have kindly supported Nintendo 3DS from the beginning are Nintendo’s most important customers. Although we may not be able to completely prevent you from regretting purchasing Nintendo 3DS early, we would like to express our gratitude to our special customers like you by offering 20 free downloadable games,” said Nintendo in a statement.
A tutorial video on how to connect the Nintendo 3DS to the internet, is available at www.nintendo.co.za.
