Iwata Says Sorry to 3DS Early Adopters

With the recent announcement of a price drop for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has not only taken a salary cut, but has made it a point to address early adopters of the 3DS.

In a message to the fans, translated by Giant Bomb, Iwata states that, “Those customers who purchased the 3DS at the very beginning are extremely important to us. We know that there is nothing we can do to completely make up for the feeling that you are being punished for buying the system early.”

“If the software creators and those on the retail side are not confident that the Nintendo 3DS is a worthy successor to the DS and will achieve a similarly broad (user) base, it will be impossible for the 3DS to gain popularity, acquire a wide range of software, and eventually create the product cycle necessary for everyone to be satisfied with the system,” added Iwata.

So how do you 3DS owners feel about what Iwata is saying?  Are the 20 free downloadable games that are coming later this year enough to satisfy you?  Share your thoughts!

      I’m not mad at 20 free downloadable games though; but let’s hope Nintendo adds more to the pot.
