Anyone who's been holding out for a new Nintendo handheld, we really hope you didn't buy a 2DS last night. Nintendo has dropped the retail price of the 2DS -- its dual-screen, non-3D handheld -- from $130 to $100. The 2DS is a single plastic block (no clamshell) with two screens, an analog pad, directional pad, four action buttons and a stylus, and it plays most of the games available on the 3DS and DS. The $100 2DS includes a digital copy of Mario Kart 7, just like the former, pricier version.

The 2DS launched in October 2013 for $130 and by January, Nintendo had sold 2.1 million units. The sales came despite the fact that its announcement in August 2013 was widely received with amused bewilderment, to say the least. As it turns out, the 2DS is a handy little system for players who don't care for 3D gaming, and now it's a tad more affordable.

Ah, the sweet scent of video game price cuts. Prepare yourselves -- the holidays are coming.
