1. Starting Sept. 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES™ Virtual Console™ games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™, Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.

2. By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi's Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.

More details about this program will be announced in the future.

In other words, you can get 20 games as long as you buy a 3DS before an $80 price drop takes effect. So those "free" games are going to cost a new buyer $80.

It's a great deal for anyone who already owns a unit, but not an incentive for a new purchase.

In theory, one could buy a 3DS on say August 10th, and get the 20 free games. Then go to the store you bought it at and get the price match that most stores offer a week later. Just gotta wonder how many stores would honor the price match tho.

@widmer69: That is was what I was thinking. How many stores are there that will not adjust price within a reasonable time frame?

Woo Hoo free games. Even if it is expensive, it has very pretty pictures.

I will be all over this with a price match.

Thanks for posting the news.

only stores who hate customers wouldnt price adjust. as long as they have any return policy, you could buy the 3ds before the price drop and use the it before the deadline for the free games. then buy another 3ds after the price drop and return this new unit with the old receipt (it obviously has to be exactly the same model and within the return period of the initial purchase - i dont think the individual unit's id# is recorded). so whether they like it or not, savvy customers will get a bargain.

@pcapowski: Actually, I am pretty sure most places match the serial number to prevent just what you have stated from happening. Just a heads up, but when I returned my daughter's DS XL,they made certain the numbers matched and everything.
