Nintendo seems to have perfectly timed the price drop for the Nintendo 3DS. Also, it introduced an interesting lineup of exciting games like the Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Super Mario 3D Land. With such measures, sales for the popular Nintendo 3DS have certainly received a boost.

As per the NPD Group, it reigned at the top selling spot for five consecutive months.

However, the 2DS exemplifies an easily affordable, solid substitute for the more expensive one that is directed at the mass buyers and has access to an exhaustive game library.
