Black Friday deals usually don't drop the price of a console. It's usually a bundle that includes the console plus a couple of games at a decent value.

This. Take it from a former victim of video game retail management, hardware/console prices are almost never discounted for any reason. The prices are typically controlled by the company that makes the systems (Nintendo, in this case).

And that red 3DS is stacking on the regret even more haha. Cruel stuff. At least it wasn't a price drop coinciding with the release of a 3DS Lite or something; then I would be unhappy. As things stand, the GBA games can't be transferred to a new 3DS, so I'll probably be enjoying my current model until the end of this handheld generation.

All these different things that Iwata keeps addressing is really starting to make me feel sorry for the guy. It's like he's taking sole responsibility for the system not doing well.

As if you couldn't see this coming, it's basic business. Release at a high price, rack in the money from the people who'll buy at that price then lower the price to get the user base needed.
