I think that the 3DS is going to be $299 and released on March 27th here in North America. I really hope that it ends up being cheaper though.

Indeed it is, my good fellow! I echo your desire for the aformentioned individual to be incorrect in their prognosticational attempts.

Don't be silly. It'll be $299 because retails want to gouge us even though our dollar has been on par for months.

Hardy83 has become known for his sunshine and cheer round these parts.

Southeast Asia, NA-region 3DSes for around S$300-350 at release. Local retailers aren't stupid enough to release it for any higher a profit margin than that.

Haha really I know what you mean. I have a few Canadian friends who are always railing against the price difference across the border to the US. Just be glad you don't live in the UK lol, everything there is hugely inflated in price due to high exchange rates, taxes and EU policies. :P

Maybe you should check if online stores like Amazon.ca have better prices than your local stores? Or maybe Amazon.com has cheap delivery to Canada? There must be a way to get a good deal on game products somehow.

I'm going for a 250 € price tag and March 25th. But even at that price point i have to think very hard about getting it. I certainly don't think i will pay any € more than that.

That's the reason why i buy most of my games in their webshops. Most of them are in German too and the prices are just insanely low in most of the cases.

Actually... At the moment I do live in the UK. lol Prices don't seem THAT bad cept the system costs, but then again I haven't paid much attention because all my handhelds are NA system, and my PS3 and Wii are back in Canada.
But don't get me started on rent and public transit pricing in the UK, my GOD! lol

Also Amazon.ca kind of sucks most of the time when it comes to game sales for some odd reason, which is shame because Amazon.com is so restricting on what they send up to Canada now a days.

But my apologies, I side tracked the post. I think the 3DS will be 249, though in all honesty I think it would be smarter for Nintendo to price it at 199. They do have to compete with the Ipod touch whether people want to admit that or not.
Not saying it'll fail at 249, but I think 199 would be the sweet spot.
