UK DS Prices Could Tumble as Nintendo Cuts Trade Cost
Posted by James Newton
No new colours on the way, sadly
Earlier today we reported that Nintendo is set to launch new DSi XL colours over in Japan, accompanied by a decent price cut on all DS lines. Now Nintendo UK has announced it'll be chopping down the asking price of every DS unit it sells to retailers, leaving the door open for cheaper consoles across the country.
Predictably Nintendo didn't mention the size of the price cut, reiterating its stance that retailers, not Nintendo, set the final price to consumers, but with the Japanese market receiving cuts of around £25 a unit we could see some drastic drops on console prices.
The new trade prices come into effect from June 18th so keep a beady eye on your local games emporium to see if you can snatch up any cheap machines.
