    I'm curious to know what you guys think the 3DS price will be in USD.

    How much are you willing to pay?, and if its expensive, Do you want a free game?

    Please be honest with the poll and post here your thoughts on the price, and do you think it will come with inlc games, movies, demos ect?

    I personally think its going to be 250 dollars, and will come with some 3ds-ware., or a demo.

    In Opium's "Nintendo announce 3DS launch details!, February 26 in Japan, March worldwide" is announced that the cost are 25,000 yen ($US300). So we know already the prise of the handheld. But i suggest $150-$200 will be a lot better in prise.

    The thing is, the Jap price conversion for consoles and games is never the same.

    For example, the DSI-XL/LL was $240 in Japan, but only 180 in the states.

    Would you buy it for more than 300 dollars if it doesn't come with a game?
    Maybe [​IMG]

    I reckon there'll be 1000 free points for NintendoWare, just like they did for the DSi. It won't be more than $275, either.

    25 000 Yen is 300 USD. But it never goes like that in gaming. I expect 250 minimum.

    @tehnoobshow It could be.

    My price prediction is exactly $200, but it didn't seem right to vote for the first option. [​IMG]
    And no to both questions 2 and 3. I do not think that games would be worth over $50 each. Plus, I'm depending on piracy before buying a 3DS.

    It's probably going to be $225.
    I'll be purchasing it when it gets cheaper if it turns out to cost $300+. It already comes with free games. Augmented Reality games. The games will probably cost $50 like with Wii games.

    Nintendo has stated that game prices shouldn't be rising for the 3DS from what DS games were at.

    Given that how Yen grows stronger and Dollars grows weaker, $270 for USA sounds about right.
