Nintendo CEO Hints At 3DS Price

Annoyed at the price but totally expected.

My DS Phat is falling apart, so I was hoping I wouldn't have to drop too much to get one.

Advice for Sonic Team: You can't execute anything, so don't even try it. Get some help.
Don't do what Mario does.

^All the topics there have been so far about the price of the 3DS.

I was expecting at least $250. $200 is a pretty good launch price. Keep in mind Sony launched PSP Go at $250, lol.

I don't get why people are so surprised. I was expecting it to be priced at 249 at least.


perhaps because we know know the 3DS uses a GPU chip that's 4 years old? That the camera's are still only a tiny 0.3 MP in resolution, I also assume the wi-fi adapter will be the same.

"perhaps because we know know the 3DS uses a GPU chip that's 4 years old?"

We know that there are 2006 and 2008 models, we don't know which...We also don't know if they got the absolutely best, or the absolutely worst

incoming $250 pricetag

Not to mention, the Xbox 360 was released in 2005 so it's not like the 3DS is using TERRIBLY old technology, considering the 360's tech is older. I doubt this will translate to better graphics on the 3DS' part but don't just assume it'll be worse off because it's old.

Well its at least 200 unless they can make a profit at a lower price. I am saving up for a 250 + tax price tag. Just in case.
