This is the exact price i was expecting. Although morrisons where i work will undercut that price to prob £249 then add my 10% discount and im loving life!!

Way too much for tech that's barely better than Xbox and PS3.

Tech alone is not what makes a console attractive; it's whether it's "fun" and has games. Graphics and tech aren't the be all and end all in a console's appeal.

All about perceived value. If it was just about tech then by your reckoning the Vita should be flying off the shelves.

Not bad

Not too bad I was hoping for around £250 but I'm happy enough with the price! Good job Nintendo!

Edit: Forgot to mention; I hope there are more first party games coming out with this! Just been looking at what ShopTo have for preorder and other than Pikmin 3 its not great.

Maybe they meant Euros, because €279.00 = $350.00 and €39.99 = $50.00

UK and Europe usually get wonky price tags. For example, wii released at £179 which is equivalent to $350.

So, this is probably an inaccurate prediction, but the console will probably be around $300 in the US (If you consider the difference in prices of the wii, it would be $330).

True! UK and Japan both get some pretty crazy pricing for consoles
