Amazon orders are up. Better hurry up and pre-order it now if you don't wanna buy the inevitable crap bundles from retailers or expensive ones from eBay, people are gonna buy them all up pretty soon to try to turn a profit, so it is better to pre-order one through a retailer if you can and if you change your mind before release, cancel it. You won't get charged at most places until anything ships anyways.

As good a price as we could have hoped, given the Japanese price. I'm guessing we're mainly paying for 3D screen + extra touch screen. Not an instabuy for me though.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

Actually I think the price is mostly derived from the 3D screen and the new processor inside the device. That thing is powerful and efficient for its size so it's definitely not cheap. The 3 cameras may also raise the price a bit too. Touch screens are so common these days that there's no way they're expensive.

Why do you get a price and are we still left in the dark. I hate that. That's a surprisingly low price BTW. I hope we will pay about the same in euros.

At least we get it before you guys.

I quote myself in the comments of the live text:
And the price being unannounced isn't a surprise. Each country in the EU will have a different price so announcing one at the event will just make people jealous of one another.

No chance. It definitely won't be the converted US price in Euros or GBP. It will likely be more expensive in the EU.

Well that's some small consolation. :P

No interesting launch games and probably being way too expensive means a no-buy from me (for now).

What the heck? Only three launch games!? :O I guess I'll just buy Super Street Fighter IV as a launch title. At least the price for the 3DS is reasonable.

I'm going to pre-order mine through Amazon so I won't have to pay tax and get free shipping!:D Now, I just have to decide if I want black or blue.

Update: I decided to go with Cosmo Black!:D

So...did they say exactly what the launch titles were?...Only thing that kinda worries me. And apparently the black 3DS doesn't have a mix of red in it anymore...ah well.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.
