id say if gaming is a hobby buy it.
most of yall are going to buy it anyways
rather on ebay used one day, for cheaper or whatever
ive been running into a lot of cheap gamers lately
i understand how money is, but by the time some people get done crying about it they could perhaps cut back on other "expenses" like downloading 144 wii ware games...

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.
And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

Well one thing's for sure: Nintendo isn't stupid enough to sell devices at a loss per unit. (Unlike Microsoft and Sony. :|) So I expect the price to be reasonable, but nothing particularly low.

It's not stupid, and loss leading is a well established and effective business strategy in all kinds of areas - retail being another one - not just games.

Most enterprise tech hardware is sold into organisations on a no-margin or loss leading strategy too, and the money is made back in associated services.

That's just great! I knew this wasnt gonna be true though for the simple fact that nobody else is doing 3D games, movies, and pictures on a handheld.

True. Nintendo does make large returns from software sales and licensing. It must be the same for Sony and Microsoft.

I'm pretty sure the 3DS' price being over $200 isn't a surprise to anyone. Especially if you consider the immense amount of features you are going to get with the device.

it's worth noting that the price of the 3DS, ¥25,000, is also what the wii sold for at launch in japan. that figure was adapted to $250 for the west, so maybe the 3DS will retail here for that price as well.

It's just as I thought, 250$. That's an exceptable price for me.

It's already been removed. I've experienced that Bart Smit uses estimate prizes on their website or leaflets before, anyway.

Actually it's currently at $300. We have no idea what it will be here, if there will be a pack-in game, etc. I would expect a pack in game and 3DS to sell for $300.

Seems fairly resonable. Pretty high for a handheld, but with the crazy amount of features this thing is packing (and the strong possibility for a pack-in game, as you mentioned) I don't think it's completely ridiculous.

i hope its in the $225-250 range, then i could get it first thing. I just hope nintendo don't let other companies bring bad games to the 3ds like the wii.

Why does it matter, if other companies get into it? (Which they are) Ignore those 3rd party products. Sonic is awesome, Street Fighter is, Metal Gear Is

I want to complain...but when I see Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Metal Gear Solid and Paper Mario in 3D it's kind of tough.
And did I mention Metal Gear Solid in mother effin 3D??
