This just popped up, I don't know if they are just throwing something around, its Austrailain Dollars, already checked and that comes out to $302.159 USD, or $299 if rounded out. How does that sound? Is it just an EB posting, though I've heard gamestop/eb are good about these things.

Then again, aren't games/consoles overpriced before inflation?

Well, I don't know what to make of that. Except that I hope it isn't true. ;_;

Why does the blue one say 2011 while the red one says 2010?

That's about $50 too high, imo. When the final specs are released, the tech might justify that price, but from what I've seen, $250 is the highest I'd go for a day 1 purchase.

well it's showing $348 now, so probably not. For the record, it does say estimated MSRP

I've a feeling that's not right. We'd see something official if Nintendo actually released pricing information.

Are they seriously trying to take preorders for it already? We don't even have a word on whether it's the final design or not...

This topic has been made before.

It's an overestimated placeholder price for the sake of not undershooting reservations. Nothing's official yet.

I think if you convert what they pay for games now it is around $80 U.S. (compared to $60 here), so a straight conversion is not really applicable.

Australia dollars.

Also, their video games are overpriced. They have Mario Galaxy 2 listed at 98 dollars (roughly 85 USD).
