Pretend the 3DS is $300 at launch

Millions of people will still buy this and Nintendo will still make tons of money. A good portion of us will still probably buy it and the games and Nintendo will still gain a lot of money. If the 3DS is highly priced (and good) at launch, be prepaired to wait for holiday deals or a price cut if you don't want to spend tons on a handheld system. Personally, I'll wait for some sort of price reduction either way because none of the games appeal to me for how much money I'd be spending. -shrugs- Maybe (a big maybe) they'll release something I really like but I doubt it. I know, we know nothing about the price but I'll spend just close to $300 or more either way. An assumed $200+tax on a system and a few games= over $300 out of my pocket.
People are afraid of what they don't understand.

If it's $300, I hope they announce it mega early so I can save up. If it's $300, I probably won't get any games for it for a while. (Honestly I'd be happy messing around with the 3D camera until I have games)

But I doubt it'll be the much. Wii was only $250 at launch, and I really don't see it being more than that. Maybe the same price, but definitely not more.
Kirby with a blue hat. Watch out he spits. I used to have a right thumb, but it left. Check the instruction manual before you ask a question. It saves time.

I won't pay one cent over $249.99 (plus sales tax) for the system itself. Non-negotiable for me.

It had better not top $200. If so, I'm out.

At least, until it gets at least two killer apps.

I'm REALLY excited about the 3DS, bud I'd have to pass at that price (provided there's no packed in game).

this price is unacceptable unless it comes packaged with a top end game
