Nintendo's Big, Pricey Bet on 3D

Would you pay $250 for 3D gaming, movie watching and picture taking you can carry in your pocket?

That's the question Nintendo is gambling on this spring when it rolls out its latest in a long a series of what has been traditionally incredible popular portable gaming consoles.

The 3DS hits the U.S. on March 27 for $250, the same price that Nintendo launched their incredibly popular Wii console for in 2006.

That $250 price tag puts it in direct competition with the current line-up of consoles, with the Wii and Xbox 360 both now selling for $200 and the Playstation 3 selling for $300.

The story is too old to be commented.
