PSA: Last Day to Register for Free 3DS Games
Posted on Thursday, August 11 @ 07:52:26 Eastern by Anthony Severino
Right after the Nintendo 3DS price drop, Nintendo, worrying about early-adopter resentment, announced a 3DS Ambassador Program which entitled anyone who already owned a 3DS 20 free games. All you have to do was to sign into Nintendo's 3DS eShop just once before the price drop officially takes effect to get the games for free. However, that ends today, as the price drop officially goes into effect tomorrow at all retailers.
That means that today is the last day you can register your 3DS at Nintendo's eShop. To be clear, you don't actually have to "register" for the program, just signing into the 3DS eShop at any point today will automatically register your 3DS.
Some retailers have already begun selling the 3DS at this discounted price. If you can find one today at Target, Wal-Mart, or another retailer for the new $169.99 price, you can get the low price point and register a your new 3DS in time to take advantage of the free games. Right now might just be the best time to get a new 3DS. After today, you can still get the new low price, but no free games.
Buyer beware, though. These free games are tied to the 3DS, not the owner, so if your 3DS breaks, or if you buy the inevitable 3DS Lite or 3DSi, these free games cannot be transferred.
So, who is getting a 3DS today?
