With graduations and a few parental holidays quickly approaching, Nintendo wants you to share your favorite handheld with your family. But if you don’t want to let them borrow it for one minute, (they might not give it back after all,) you can now purchase one for them at a lower price without having to rummage through dusty stacks of used hardware at GameStop.

Starting May 20, prices for both the [amazon_link id=”B001T8W2LW” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]DSi and DSi XL [/amazon_link]systems will be dropped to $99.99 and $129.99 respectively. This new price will also separate them even more from the $169.99 price tag of the 3DS, so if gamers don’t mind foregoing newer titles and 3D graphics, these two “classic” handhelds will do them just fine.

With a library of over 2,000 games, both packaged and downloadable titles, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t want to gift them to your loved ones. That is, make sure they like to game, of course.
