Gamers who bought the Nintendo 3DS before its first price drop, only a few months after release, will surely remember that Nintendo offered these gamers a special Ambassador program which rewarded them with some exclusive games which haven’t made available to the public yet.
Right after release, the Nintendo 3DS struggled quite a bit on the market, mostly due to the high price and lack of games. The latest Nintendo home console, Wii U, has been having the same problems and only recently the Japanese company has decided to lower the console’s price, with the Deluxe Wii U now priced like the old Basic pack, which will be dropped and no longer being offered from September 20th.
Unfortunately Nintendo has no plans to introduce an Ambassador program for Wii U early adopters, as confirmed by a Nintendo representative earlier this morning.
“The Ambassador program is only available to any Nintendo 3DS owner who purchased their system before August 12, 2011 and there are no plans for a similar program for Wii U.”
“I know that this isn’t what you were hoping for, but we appreciate your support of our products now and in the future. I also want to assure you that your comments will be added to our records and made available for other departments at the company to use as they see fit.”
