The 3DS Is No Longer Being Sold At A Loss

The 3DS Is No Longer Being Sold At A Loss

For awhile the 3DS wasn’t making money off the hardware, when Nintendo had to drop the price of the system due to lackluster sales. The system was originally priced at $249.99, perhaps to steep of a price for the average consumer. With the price drop to $169.99, the 3DS was being sold at a lost, to make up for those sales.

For a company that likes to make money with hardware, this was a major blow to the profitability of Nintendo over the last year. Now that their latest piece of hardware can be sold at profit, perhaps Nintendo will start making some money again.
