    So can anyone can just buy these or does it have to go through Nintendo like I'm thinking.

    Nothing for an average consumer. We know how much developers buy their dev kits off Ninty.

    So game developers buy this off Nintendo? Pretty pricey considering the large number of shovelwares in the DS especially if what monkat is saying is true.

    i assume you have to have some kind of cred to get this? they don't sell it to everyone right?

    i smiled inside when i seen they have dev flash carts. maybe a commercial one for consumers will come along.

    While the EA’s and others Ubisofts of the world have been working on 3DS games for almost a year, smaller companies will finally get the chance to produce games for the system as announced two months ago...

    To be able to buy this (or any other ninty SDK stuff) you need:

    1. A detailed description of your company, including a summary of your software publishing experience, financial resources and stability (in the form of an annual report or balance sheet for the last three years) and your industry leadership. This information should be in the form of a corporate prospectus, business plan or summary statement;
    2. A detailed introduction to your key personnel and developers setting forth any technical, managerial or sales experience that may be relevant;
    3. A marketing plan for your proposed products, including targeted distribution channels, advertising commitments, consumer service resources, merchandising, etc.;
    4. Any market study information on consumer demand for your proposed product which you may be relying on;
    5. A written description of your proposed software product;
    6. A complete summary and at least three samples of software you have previously published and upon which you rely for establishing your technical know-how. [/p]

    73065 Nintendo 3DS (Development only) “Panda” USA $324
    73066 Nintendo 3DS (Development only) “Panda” EU $324
    73067 Nintendo 3DS (Development only) “Panda” AUS $324[/p]Nintendo still hasn't heard of currency change. Every developers will want an USA unit, certainly not one from Australia.

    Anyway, this SDK looks cheaper than any previous console to me. Could they hope for new third parties developers (from iphone world for example) to be interested and buy a license ?

    Euhm... they are ALL the exact same amount being 324 dollar, hence the $ sign. One can also assume they mean USD

    Yeah, it comes out funny here because of the lack of tables. See the source page to see what I mean.
