Iwata apologises to 3DS early-adopters over the 3DS price drop

Ambassado Program offers 20 free games to say thanks for buying it already

Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, has issued an apology for the 3DS price drop to those who have already picked up the machine since launch.

In the apology, Iwata-san explained their reasons behind the unprecedented price cut stating that it was necessary to take this drastic step in order to ensure that large numbers of users will continue to enjoy the 3DS in the future.

Nintendo announced at the end of last week that they would be cutting the price of the 3DS considerably across all territories on August the 12th.

By way of an apology to those who already have their hands on a 3DS Nintendo announced the Ambassador Program. This makes available 20 free downloadable titles (worth around 100 GBP) for those registering for the program on the eStore by midnight on August the 11th.

Thanks GiantBomb.
