I love how people on there claim the 3DS is overpriced, only because Sony announced the Vita at 299.99.


Parts on the DS cost $97 and sold for $150
Parts on the 3DS cost $103 and sold for $250


You don't need to compare it to the Vita


You do realize they wouldn't be making anything if they sold it for 100 dollars right?

You do realize that not only wouldn't they be making anything, but in fact would be losing a significant amount of money if they sold it for $100 right?

If you think this is permanent you're probably stupid.

I don't think anyone is gonna buy this for back to school, if anything parents want their kids studying when they go back to school. Giving them new video games right before they go back isn't smart if you want them to study. Besides parents are squeezed enough for back to school with the massive supply lists most classrooms require kids to bring!

Keep in mind it took a price drop and great games for the DS to catch on.

$149-$129 and now $249-$199.

There's more to selling a system than parts you know. But, it seems people can't comprehend this.


All I'm saying is that the cost of parts between the DS and 3DS are similar but sold at a $100 difference. The cost of production and store cut will be similar as well.

It's not selling, so they're dumping it cheaper. Can't blame them~

Consoles go on sale ALL the time, no matter if they just came out or they have years, stores always do sales...

The Wii is #1 in sales this gen and I have seen it going in sale a lot of times, is not because is not selling, duh!!



The Wii was the number 1 in sales this Gen but its peak was only 3 years, selling a lot of consoles in a short time. After that, sales dropped.

Canada is already over paying $15 for the 3DS. $250 Canadian is current $265 US. I'm not sure how much the current stronger Canadian dollar figures into this though. However Walmart probably gets them in bulk prices in US dollars, as they are a US company, then pays standard shipping for all its products to it's Canadian stores.

Do people not research the PSVITA very well on here?


PSV has 2 versions, one with 3G for 299 and the other is without 3G for 250.


Most PSV buyers are gonna get the one without 3G cause some of them already own 4G Iphones and such and yes you can tether the PSV to 4G phones, its basically using a phone as a access point.



Also to Trenken, you know, Im tired of your way of thinking, thinking that the 3DS is the same as a DS, when 3DS is more powerful and you cant play a 3DS game on a DS, you make yourself sound like a troll cause you do this so much.

True, but 4G isn't available everywhere yet. My city is just now getting the upgrade to 4G even though plenty of people have the latest iphone.
