Nintendo Offers 20 Free Games With New 3DS Purchase

It was just last week when Nintendo revealed a price cut for its 3DS portable gaming device. Many believed that the price cut was due to poor sales since the 3DS received many complaints, ranging from eye strain, headaches, and other things like the LCD screen getting scratched against the cover.

Dany31412 modded the Mario cartridge to house original NES controllers, as well as your standard video cables required to connect the system to your television.
