Some rumored information regarding the 3DS has been released from a rather trustworthy source.
All I wanna know is if it will be $300, might be to much for me.
I never thought I would buy another handheld until I saw the 3ds, so I hope its not super expensive. I think it will be around 250 tho. Ill probably say the same thing when I see the psp2.
The more I think about it... I don't think Nintendo would really release a console for that high of a price! They always try to keep it under the $200 mark, and I believe they will try that with the 3DS as well. Plus, it seems kinda ass backwards to have your handheld cost more than your home console!
i'm guessing $250
This is my guess too. I think Nintendo understands that a $300 price tag will damage its ability to be competitive in North America. Whereas the equivalent of $300 makes sense in the more handheld-centric Japanese market. Nintendo has always been smart about pricing, and I'd be very surprised if they price themselves out of the market now. Edit: Also, keep in mind that withholding the NA price for so long after the Japanese price was announced could be a strategy. If we expect it to be $300, $250 will seem cheap by comparison. On the other hand, if they had simply announced a $250 price right away, those who were hoping for a $200/$225 price would view it as expensive without a point of comparison.
hopefully £200 anything higher and ill b waiting for price drop
Yeah, yeah. I'll be impressed the day it has two analogue controllers.. I've been asking for this for years.. It's shite otherwise.
The touch screen is the second analogue
As much as i like the sound of the 3ds, any more than £170 ill wait for a price drop. Same goes for the psp2.
I miss gameboy =(
I wonder why they are doing that? Oh yeah because they want the world to still buy the older DSs all the way up to Xmas. And its all them parents that are gonna be pissed off and confused in Feb/Mar when their child is screaming for a newer DS when they just got one at Xmas.
capitalism at its finest sir.
At $250, anybody can get it down to $179.99 at a gamestop or something...lol. Bring it on!!
Can't wait. The DS was one of the best systems I've ever owned, so I can't wait for the successor. I can only hope demand for this won't be "Stalk the UPS truck" high. I don't think it will, but with the whole 3D craze in full swing, you never know.
