It wasnt exactly a game-changing year for Nintendo Co. The companys new 3DS handheld game console features a videoscreen that displays 3D images without glasses. But for many gamers, this wasnt reason enough to part with $250.
Nintendo got the message and slashed the price. At about $180 on Amazon.com and at other retailers, the 3DS is selling fast, as it should. The 3D feature is a gimmick that adds little to the fun of gaming. Still, the 3DS is an excellent mobile amusement device.
