According to Electronic Entertainment Design and Research's Jesse Divnich speaking with gameindustry.biz, the NGP will probably launch at a price between $300 and $350.
That's most likely true. Sony's strategy has always been to sell its products at a loss while Nintendo's has been to sell it at a profit. It may well cost only slightly more than the 3DS for Sony to remain competitive.
I agree with the analists.
Considering the specs, I agree that the price may be at least $300. But id be really balsy for Sony to charge the same price as a PS3. "$300 is a perfect price considering what you're getting." Ur missing the big picture. In 2006, $600 was a STEAL for a PS3 since Blu-ray players ALONE costed $600 at that time. Here's the thing...even if you sell something at a bargain, that doesn't mean people will be able to afford it. Here's another example. A Ferrari that normally costs $1 million drops to $250,000. Its a 75% price drop...but does that mean that everyone will automatically be buying this car??
I don't know how you ever got down to 1 bubble with great analogies like that! But bubs for you.
Looks like I'll be waiting for a price drop or a SLIM version.
Remember when pacher said natal will be $50
The Analyst in question is not pacher.
way too much!
$300 is a perfect price considering what you're getting.
Considering how their competition sells for $250, $300 would be nothing short of phenomenal. They'd be selling it at a huge loss too, like they did when PS3 launched in 2006.
Im not sure that the PSP2 would be seelling at that much an incredible loss, Seeing as the reason the 3DS is selling for $250 is its 3DS technology and double screen, while the PSP2 is selling more for its GPU/CPU processor, and its OLED screen.
I want one badly still! Cant wait
I wouldn't buy it if it was anymore than $350!
What's $350 in pounds? Anyone? 400? Never mind, I just checked XE.com and it states; 350.00 USD = 220.360 GBP £220 really isn't a bad price.
400*. :P *Not a true conversion! But when are console prices ever true conversions? Some regions always get the shaft.
$350 is a good price, I'd pay up to $400 for the device with 3G.
I would only pay for the 3G one if its 3G is like Amazons Kindle. FREE.
It wont be. Books take up a little less bandwidth than games
As much as I like it that is way too much! 3DS will take it to the cleaners and I think the 3DS is too pricey as well.
Would they really sell it for more than the price of PS3? I think $250 is more appropriate. It's a bit odd to price it for more than the regular console.
and that is high enough
Fucking analysts. I estimate it will cost between 1-500$. You can quote me on that.
I'm going to sound like a cheap ass but when it comes to handhelds I never go past $150... I know, I know. For me, money is hard to come by with bills so yeah ... but I always wait these things out. I know we're going to see the 3DS Lite and the PSP2 Slim, so I will be waiting for that at a low price.
You're waiting for the Slim to be at a low price?? That'll be years! At least buy the phat when the slim is released--should be more reasonably priced then.
$299 is when I take getting one seriously.
In terms of £, i see it as £250-£280.
I said the device would cost between $300-$400 when they released the price of the 3DS, does that make me an Analyst? Wheres my pay?
It s a really good price,
Analysts are usually wrong but i am hoping that this one is right
