Jim Sterling talks about why Nintendo went about lowering the price of the 3DS and that how the claims of Nintendo fans boys saying that "the DS didn't sell well when it first started but look at it now" is complete bollocks. A bit of a slap back to reality if you will on this episode of The Jimquisition.
They say history repeats itself, but that's not always true. Just because something happened with a videogame console over five years ago, that doesn't mean it'll happen again. The past is not the future, and the present is a very different animal.
