Since Nintendo's 3DS price drop, the prices of the company's older portable systems have seemed a little off. The spiffy new system became a cool $169.99, while the old DSi XL remained the same price, $169.99. Even the standard DSi is set at $149.99, meaning twenty bucks was the difference between new and old. That issue is being fixed with new price points coming soon.
Nintendo has announced that starting May 20, the DSi XL will be reduced to an MSRP of $129.99, and the DSi will be knocked down to $99.99. The new price shares a date with the Midnight Purple 3DS and the launch of Mario Tennis Open for the 3DS, so it will be a big day for Nintendo products.
