The Black Friday shopping frenzy has subsided, and as the dust clears Nintendo must be fairly pleased with the performance of their handhelds.

Speaking to CNET, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime disclosed that Nintendo sold 250,000 3DS and 275,000 DS handhelds over the holiday weekend.

Fils-Aime attributed these strong sales to the "significant" Black Friday deals that various retailers were offering, including one rather attractively priced bundle.

Rumour has it

On the softer side of 3DS news, a rumour in the NeoGAF forums indicates that Target will drop the price of a regular 3DS to $139.99 next week which is $30 cheaper than its current retail price.

Also rumoured is the arrival of a Mario Kart XL bundle, similar to the one announced for Europe earlier this year.

The Mario Kart XL bundle will include a blue 3DS XL and a copy of Mario Kart 7 for $199 - which is $30 cheaper than the current suggested retail price for an individual 3DS XL.
