I guess this is what we should expect from Nintendo now $300, and the games will probably be $50.

I think they'll scale it back to $250 for the US market.
Games could certainly be $50, though, but since that's the standard Wii game price-point, i'd expect $45 as the base.

I am estimating 270. They really cant just yank back the price fifty bucks.Fifty bucks is alot of money, if it was subtracted from every 3DS purchase. It adds up.

$250 seems fair, though I just bought a PS3 for $300, and we all can agree that is the better console, sans the Nintendo software.
Okay, we really can't.

$250 is the sweet spot to me. any lower and they'd be getting ripped off, any higher and we'd be getting ripped off. $250 just feels neutral right in the middle.

True. But it also potentially establishes a higher install base, which leads to greater software sales. And i'd wager that even at 250 USD, Ninty would still be seeing a profit on each unit sold.
They are probably still considering what US price point to launch at, which will be primarily driven my market analysts who focus on the tech markets, who will then advise as to what the "sweet spot" for most American consumers will be.

$50 was subtracted from the Wii's price (from Japan to US) and they were still making money on each sale

Um, no, it wasn't. The dollar was trading for 117.73 yen back on November 17, 2006. (the 19th was a weekend) On that date, 25000 yen was worth only $212.05.Today, the exchange rate is much different and 25000 yen is closer to $300, as we've been hearing nonstop.In six months, when the 3DS launches? Who knows? 25000 yen might be worth $700! Maybe it'll be worth a buck and a half!
In short, I agree, exchange rate has nothing to do with pricing, but it's not the same financial situation now that existed four years ago, so all bets are off until we hear something official from Reggie.

Probably going to be less than $300 in America.

Seriously. That is a speculation. Not confirmed.
132. Posted: Sun 3rd Oct 2010 02:54 BST
I think it will be $300

It might be a rumor but I really believe this is facts even though it is a rumor. If it cost 300$ theres no way my parents are going to get me a 3DS. Lets pray it cost 250$.

I would skip Christmas altogether if it meant I could get the 3DS when it came out. Hm... That might not be such a bad idea.

Ninty knows how to do business in the US. Frankly, given the current poor economic climate, I'd be very surprised if it's over $250. They could position it at $300, and it would still sell, but i think it's very unlikely. They may however go for some middle point, like $260 or $270.

He also said that there's "no way" this can release in March because of "the way Nintendo does things." While I do think that it will launch for $250 here, I wouldn't trust anything Patchr says as "fact."

I can tell you now if its 300$ I'm going to wait for about a year after it has been released, theres just no way my parents are going to buy a 3DS for 300$ I can tell you now that a lot of poor people are not going to buy the 3DS for 300$ and Nintendo knows that.

$250 seems fair, though I just bought a PS3 for $300, and we all can agree that is the better console, sans the Nintendo software.Okay, we really can't.
Man I got mine when they were still $600.
i think $300 for the 3DS is a fair price considering all you get with it and for it. I mean the first real 3d console on the market, plus vc gameboy games...you can't go wrong.
