Product-Reviews writes: We shouldn’t expect a direct conversion for US pricing, but 25,000 Yen translates to just under $300 USD, $298 to be exact. For a next-generation system, do you think $300 is reasonable for the 3DS, or completely out of order?
To put the figure in perspective, you can pick up a 120GB PS3 Slim for the same price on Amazon, while you can also pick up the new Xbox 360 250GB console for $299 as well.
Can you justify paying $300 for the Nintendo 3DS or not? You could argue that the price is likely to drop a bit for the US market, but we can’t see it dropping too much to be honest.
