Is Nintendo Working On Revamped 3DS Hardware?
by Widro on February 19, 2012

Nintendo has been working to reverse the sales trend of its recently-released 3DS hardware, notably dropping the price and pushing its lineup of first party software exclusives.

Now there are new rumors that an entirely new design for the portable could be in the works.

The source is somewhat dubious – French site 01net but some of the details ring “true” for Nintendo.

The report says that there will be a new peripheral for the 3DS which would add a second analog nub. The cost would be $10, which also could be packaged with a 3DS game much like Nintendo has bundled games with peripherals before.

Other changes could include a “phasing down” of the portables 3D capabilities, which are sometimes noted as an issue in sales.

Nintendo’s dropping of the price of the current model from $250 to $170 could be an attempt to pare down excess stock in anticipation of the new model.

Is this rumor credible? It’s hard to say, but given Nintendo is experimenting on a grand scale with ways to boost sales, a new 3DS model could be in the offing. What do you think? Talk about this 3DS rumor in our comments section!
