Remember, the price of the Nintendo 3DS is dropping to $169.99 this Friday, August 12, so I just wanted to give any of you who already have one a friendly reminder to make sure to log into the eStore at least once before 11:59 pm EST on August 11! As I mentioned in my earlier article, doing so will register you in the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador program so you will receive the free NES and Game Boy Advance games they're hoping will make up for spending the extra $80 to be an early adopter.
Just as another FYI, there's no indication upon entering the Nintendo eStore that you've been registered in the Ambassador program. There's also no E-mail confirmation, either. So don't worry when you don't feel registered. I don't, either. I just hope that on September 1, when Nintendo releases the first batch of NES Virtual Console games for free, I'm actually a 3DS Ambassador!
