Sad BF numbers confirm 3DS finally reached PSV in teh Land of teh Undead, as I predicted, although I really thought it would have had at least another decent BF and Xmas period, and the actual undeath would have happened next January.
Eh there was no reason for 3DS to do decent this holiday, the last 1st party title was released over 8 months ago and 2DS has been $79 with a game bundled for about 2 years.
Basically no new games to attract new gamers and it's been at impulse buy pricing for so long that everybody who wants one has one.
Good point, actually I simply expected stores to make very attractive BF and Xmas 3DS bundles both to clear stocks and to have another good low budget offer for customers, well, on a budget. Maybe I expected even Ninty to do them and clear its own stocks, as now NS is very well launched beyond any possible doubt, so the quite long and successful 3DS story could end this Winter without any risk, simplifying logistics (and dropping a little its cost too, that never hurts) from next Spring on.
