DS price cut on the way

And so is Nintendogs bundle.

Nintendo has announced plans to celebrate the launch of Nintendogs by knocking a tenner off the price of the Nintendo DS.

From October 7, the handheld will retail for 89. For 99, you'll be able to buy a Nintendogs bundle - either the new pink DS with Nintendogs Dachsund, or the blue one with Nintendogs Labrador.

Nintendo will no doubt be hoping that the European release of their puppy sim will give the DS a boost in the war against the PSP, as it's already done in Japan and the US. More than 250,000 copies of the game were sold in the States in the first week after launch, and when we were out there recently we couldn't find a copy for love nor $29.99.
