It's been announced that there will be a price drop for the 3DS internationally due to slow sales. The Price will drop from $249 to $169 in the US, and from £209 to £159 in the UK.
However... Nintendo is treating the people who bought their 3DS' early by introduction something called the "Ambassador's Club", this allows early adopters to get 10 free NES games and 10 free GBA games onto the 3DS virtual console to make up for such an early drop. The NES games include Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong Jr, Balloon Fight, Ice Climber and The Legend of Zelda; they haven't got into details about what the other 5 titles are. For the GBA Virtual console there's Super Mario Advance 3 Yoshi's Island, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, Mario vs. Donkey Kong and WarioWare, Inc Mega Microgame$. Again the other titles have not been mentioned, what has been mentioned is that the NES 3DS VC will be made available to Non-Ambassadors, but they will have to purchase each game if they wanted it, whilst the GBA VC games are exclusive to Ambassadors only.
To become an Ambassador you will need to register your 3DS before the 11th of August, this will give you your Ambassador Club status, that will allow you to download your 20 free games.
