3DS Ambassador Program NES Titles Announced for NA and Japan

So, the word came out yesterday about the NES games that were going to come out for the 3DS free to Ambassadors for Japan. Later that day, they confirmed that list would be the same in North America. If you haven't heard by now, the list is this

Super Mario Bros.
Legend of Zelda
Zelda II
Balloon Fight
NES Open
Donkey Kong Jr.
Ice Climber
Wrecking Crew

I'd like to go over for a bit my feelings on this list. First off, I'm very happy with it. Several of my favs from Nintendo are on here as well as a couple that I missed the first time around. The only way this list could have been better was if they included a really obscure wild card to wow us, like Clash as Demonhead or something. But few of those title were published by Nintendo, so they wouldn't have been eligible.

PS3 for 249

Well it seems that Sony has dropped the price of PS3 today to $249. This would seem to solidify that it wants to push the 3D thing for this Holiday season; not even setting the PS Vita against the 3DS in North America for the rest of the year. Sure you can get the system with a game like InFamous 2 or Call of Duty for 299, but it's now possible to get a PS3 for what they sold 3DS for just last month. Great Job.
