Your price estimates may be wrong...

Well, let's think about it...


When 3DS was shown it had everyone BLOWN back. Everyone was in shock on the power of this new hand held. So doesn't it make sense that Nintendo is planning to "blow us back" even more by using a low price.

I can see it now, they want us to think it will be $199-250 or some other RIDICULOUS PRICE. Nintendo want's people to say...WOW, all this on a handheld for this low price!? Sold! So for those of you estimating the prise to be more then the Wii, please think more.

The Wii's launch price was $249.99. So even if I am wrong, this will NOT cost more than the Wii did. This will not be more than $160 or so.

Honestly... people are just setting themselves up for a fall.

Stop thinking it'll be under 200. Convince yourself it'll be 250+. That way, IF it's lower, you'll be stoked, but WHEN it's not, you'll have already dealt with it.

I'm estimating a 179.99 price tag. And I'm usually close when it comes to these things.

Foie,
That's the cost of A DSi

Nintendo said it cost more to make a 3DS than A DSi, and they do not intend to lose money..

So your prediction is wrong.

$229.99

Yeah, Nintendo is very adamant about profit for hardware sales. They never undersell a system for less than it cost to make. Other companys undersell their hardware in hopes of banking on software sales, but not Nintendo.

DSi is 170, not 180.

According to that site, the 3DS will be cheaper than the DSi XL currently is...
