Shakeup to Nintendo DS Offerings

Earlier this week, Nintendo Japan announced that it will no longer manufacture the Aqua Blue 3DS. Why? No official word, but my guess is with the 3DS color palette expanding, they are looking to discontinue colors that aren't selling as well as others. There have been grumblings on the net that suggest a green 3DS would make a lot of people happy -- maybe they will replace the Aqua one with a green one! One thing for sure, it's possible that like with all discontinued Nintendo systems, the Aqua Blue 3DS

may become a sought after collector's edition over the next few years, which could possibly fetch you a tidy profit on eBay, if you're looking for an Nintendo investment item. Wonder if any other colors are on the chopping block?

In addition to the Aqua Blue 3DS news, Nintendo also announced that on May 20th, the price of the Nintendo DSi will drop to $99.99, and the price of the DSi XL will drop to $129.99. This is also the day that the new Midnight Purple 3DS will be released. Oh the choices! We already have a Burgundy DSi XL, and Flame Red 3DS, but we will definitely be getting the Midnight Purple 3DS. Still pondering if we're gonna get an additional newly price-dropped DSi XL for our collection. Now if they would only drop the price of the special Nintendo Wii Blue Console....

Will you be picking up one of these systems?
