And what about game pricing? Who would pay more than 30-40 dollars for a HANDHELD game?

SD Carts can go up to like, 2TB. I don't imagine 3DS cards being much different from the flash memory used on SD carts.

The 3DS Carts Will Go Up To 2GB

I already knew that. I'm simply telling the guy that cartridges aren't dead yet, and can carry more than discs can (certain ones, anyway).

That's pretty much what we're paying now. I'm able to pre-order MGS 3DS right now for 34.99 on Amazon.

Especially since handheld games these days seem to be full games rather than the 5 minute entries they used to be.

In a few years you will be able to store very large games onto a memory card the size of a DS Lite stylus.

Haha... The equivalent of $40 would be a good price for new handheld games here (about £25). Some places sell new big name high profile regular DS games for the equivalent of $54 (about £35). But it doesn't get any higher than that. But the standard cost of new games is the equivalent to $46 (£30).

But doesn't game discs sound like a good idea? I mean, the PSP pulled it off. Of course, Nintendo couldn't use the UMDs because that's a Sony trademark, but maybe the 3DS could use the GameCube's storage disc.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

And consumers realized how terrible they can be. Long load times, fairly large UMDs to carry around, and the higher price to make them wouldn't sound too good for Nintendo, who are dedicated to using cartridges in their handhelds.

I read that they will be about the price of regular DS games or a bit higher.
Okay, so my answer was generic....

Also, I payed 40 dollars for Pokémon SoulSilver. :)

No,because there 3DS game cartriges hold 8GB while the Gamecube Discs hold 1.4 or 1.5 GB.

LOL about making the cartridge smaller. I'd rather not have a microchip-size game. :p

I, like everyone else, am waiting with bated breath for the announcement of the release date.

I couldn't care less about when it's coming out, I'm more worried about the price.
$150-$200 = Good, $200-250 = Acceptable, $250-$300 = Bad.

Meh. Here in canada, the DSi was released for $200. all my friends; and i already have over $300 for the console + games.

The last time they put the system logo on the right side of the box was the N64.

so dump people dont buy the game, if they dont got the 3DS.

I wouldn't be suprised if somebody bough a game, and throws a lawsuit at them. Because he thought that the needed 3x DS systems to play that game. Which he had.

Nintendo's game carts have never used technology like SD cards. They have their own proprietary cards, or contract out them anyways. It's not simply taking an SD card and putting a game on it.

Think of it like a security key. It's still a key but you have to go somewhere special to get it made, not a place that's easily available to consumers.
