    EBgames have sent an email allowing pre orders for the 3ds with an estimated price of about $350 (AUD)

    About £200, sounds about right. Not much more than a guess on their behalf though, I imagine.

    That is a lot.
    More than double the amount the regular DS costed when that came out, almost 6 years ago now. (November 21, 2004 for US$149.99)

    sounds real.
    I'd trust EB because I've pre-ordered tonnes of stuff from there.

    What the FUCK? That's a LOT of money... I'm sad now... I guess I'll go cut myself [​IMG]

    Seriously though, that's a high price, but hopefully it's just EBgames talking shit, I haven't heard anything official of Nintendo on the price yet so it might cost less (or more! [​IMG])

    Meh, I never planned to get it at launch anyway. I might hold off until the 3ds lite. Until then, i need to get a new laptop... and a PSP... and build me another desktop... fuck. I'm gonna be broke.

    I'm hoping this is just a wild guess on their part.

    The price from the OP isn't right. Nintendo has always released cheaper hardware so it is available to a bigger crowd. Releasing an expensive handheld just doesn't fit Nintendo's strategy.

    The launch price of the 3DS won't be more than $199. Mark my words.
    The GBA debuted at a price of $99 iirc
    and the NDS at a price of $149

    This converts exactly to US dollars to about $300... Not a very good price at all, i must say i'm disappointed as one of the major draws of a Nintendo handheld is the cheap price. I didn't expect more than $200. Hope EB Games knows nothing, and that the price is more reasonable. Otherwise, this might not get a purchase from me. >_>

    And yeah, EB Games does talk shit all the time. They will put up any price or date to cash in on preorders. They often put up false dates they made up, as well as false info. Not to be trusted thankfully.
