The Gameboy games on 3DSWare should be $0.99-$2.99 each. 300 points max. Anything more than that is a ripoff, even if the game is a remake with a 3D gimmick added in.

Eh, the extra work put into the 3d versions should warrant a bit higher of a price. As far as regular Gameboy games being $1 - $3, not sure I'm with you there either, at least for the games released later in the system's life. NES games are $5 on Wii Virtual Console, and with how long the original Gameboy stuck around, by the time it was retired the games being put out for it were far and away more impressive than anything on the NES, especially after Pokemon revitalized the platform. Compare Links Awakening to either NES Zelda game, look at the Donkey Kong Land games, Pokemon gen 1 and gen 2. They were getting some pretty incredible stuff out of such an archaic architecture, even if most of them lacked color. Definitely worth at least what the NES games are going for on VC.

Iwata talks 3DS connectivity to Wii, game pricing, piracy, specs, date, hardware price, and lost business cards...On 3DS game pricing...

  • "We don't believe that the world is in a state where high priced software will sell well, so we don't believe it will be in a price range too far off from current DS software."
  • expectations of a very dynamic range of software, with prices ranging from quite low to premium

I think we can expect a model based on the current Wii VC pricing.
500 point GB games and 800 point (maybe more) GBA games.
