Nintendo fears “may lose trust” of fans following Nintendo 3DS price cut

Nintendo has acknowledged fears that fans “may lose trust” in the company, after it today announced a worldwide price cut for the Nintendo 3DS to take place less than five months after the handheld launched.

“Never in Nintendo’s history have we dropped a system’s trade price so significantly,” the company stated. “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.”

In a concerted effort to pre-empt disappointment, Nintendo have announced the “Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Programme” in which early adopters pre-price drop will be able to download 20 free titles.

Addressing such consumers, Nintendo admitted that “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”.
