If Nintendo hasn't even shown their final product yet, what makes you think they would have set a price now?

Final product?
So the system that we've seen the past few days that had a gazillion high res pictures in the press kit might not actually look like that?
Here's hoping it doesn't... I don't like how 3DS looks and it's irritating that they've deliberately made it look fugly so they can release a 3DS Lite a year later >.>

$350 is outrageous. Luckily this is only speculation and the price will go down. Ninty knows better than to release a handheld more expensive than their current home console in country like the US where the economy is poor. Bring it down to the price of Wii then I shall consider.

Pre-orders already? Hmm, kinda interested though.
I agree with others here, price shouldn't be more than 200, Nintendo knows better than to hike the price too high.
200 sounds about right for me, but I hope they include some games or free DSPoints and other pre-order/first batch goodies.
I think only the PSP has had a price that high but that came with extras to try and fit the price.

We'll see next year, but I'm sure it wont be too high, at least no without some sorta bundle.

i think about $180 to $220 USD sounds about right.
meh... at least that's what i'm counting on so it's in my budget.
since i always end up buying handhelds at launch and waiting it out 2 years after launch for the price to drop on consoles, i'd hate to have to wait out a price drop on the 3DS.
i don't think i will, seeing as the wii was cheap enough at launch for me to get and how nintendo always markets to us poor kids...

$350 actually sounds like reasonable guess for down here. DSi & DSiXL were $300 at launch here with no games included.

You can bet it will be at least $300 here....
& if its bundled with a game then at least $350.

I don't know why shit like this is so expensive here??

Their stupid for doing this now. Prices, designs, names for the 3DS could change COMPLETELY by then.

I'm sure it will be a little lower than that, but I'm expecting $300 (Maybe $250). I would spend up to $350 probably.

I don't know why their so eager advertise that they will be selling them. It's not going to be out for almost another year. Gamestop has to chill.

Remember people, this is Australian prices we're dealing with. This is actually a reasonable price.
And based on this price, I can appropriately estimate that the price is $230-250 CAD.

Why do you think that? The DS was announced at E3 in March, the final design a couple months later, the release date announcement in September, and launch in the US in November all in the same year. I'm thinking it will actually be out here in November. Konno also said it will not likely change in design that much in an interview segment with Iwata.

That price is not abnormal for an Australian price, but is it reasonable? HELL NO, that is why we import all our crap lol
if you do that though than you have to import all the games too but it doesn't really matter cos were ALSO last on the list to get games too! hopefully an m3ds will be made for this the same as ds
