Why The Regular “New” 3DS Isn’t Available In The US
When Nintendo announced that the Ne 3DS XL would be coming to the United States, but not the smaller sized New 3DS, some wondered why that happened. Nintendo of America senior manager Damon Baker has given an explanation. "We're a different market," And now we have clear differentiation between those 3 systems. Before, there was a very limited difference between the 3DS and 3DS XL, other than size. It was the same resolution, same functionality, now, there's the 2DS, 3DS, and New 3DS XL, all of which have their own functionality and features." The different price points give it a clear message for consumers. The core audience, we weren't going to win with them on that decision. But we had to think about expanding the user base, we had to be able to market it and make it easy to pick up for consumers." While the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL feature the same technical specifications, the regular-sized model supports custom faceplates, meaning gamers in the US will miss out on that feature. Baker admitted that the faceplates are "super cool," but not enough of a reason to bring the model to the US.” What do you think of this reason ? Where you hopping the regular sized New 3DS was coming to the US ?
