Nintendo Conference

Nintendo has announced they will be holding a conference on the 13th of September focusing entirely on the 3DS. A marketing ploy for the upcoming holiday season to show off titles and software updates. 01net has sparked some interesting rumours, that the lack of a second thumbstick has ment that nintendo will be releasing a thumbstick add-on that will cost approximately $10. another rumours is that Nintendo will be releasing a new version of the 3DS hardware for release in 2012 and is the reason for the price cut, to liquidate the current stock so the “successor” will replace the current 3DS. These sources however may not be reliable and we will have to wait until the 13th of September to find out.
