Rumor: 3DS price to drop to $140

Blue 3DS XL bundle with Mario Kart 7 out next week.

Nintendo will officially drop the price of 3DS from $169.99 to $139.99 in “about two weeks,” according to a CAG source.

Target, however, will have the handheld for $129.99 next week, most likely as part of a sale. A NeoGAF source backs this claim.

And for larger screen fans, Nintendo will release a blue 3DS XL bundle with Mario Kart 7 next week for $199.99. The CAG source provided a photo of the package art, which is attached right.
