Now that the 3DS XL is out, do you think we will see another price drop for the original 3DS soon?

I think it might be possible. The difference in price is only $30-$40 and I think many people will be willing to spend that extra money for the XL because of the screen alone which is almost twice the size of the original 3DS. Plus we will probably start seeing deals on the XL soon as Frys already had it for $179 on the day of it's release.

I doubt it.

Frankly, I doubt it. The price diff between the DSi & DSi XL wasn't too much either. It seems some people like hugea$$ portables and some people prefer the more compact option.

Not to mention the fact that the 3DS XL is already priced at a profitable level for Nintendo. I don't think they'd mind if people choose to spend the extra $30 for the XL.

What I'm wondering about is how soon can we expect the next 3DS SKU update? I kind of want a 3DSXL, but I kind of want to hold out for the next improved version (3DS lite? 3DSi?)

Yeah I doubt that anytime soon. No only did they have a premature(but justified) price drop the $170 price points is both profitable for Nintendo and good for the consumers. On the same note, $200 is also a good price point for the XL.

I'd say 18-24 months at earliest. The DS launched in late 2004, the Lite came about 18 months later in 2006 and the DSi came out in... 2009? 2008?
