    I am just wondering if the 3DS price will go down in a couple months. Maybe somebody heard something. Not sure figured I would ask.

    I am trying to get one desperately but its all leading to retail but its 250 and I can't afford that. I'd be willing to trade what I did have but I doubt anybody wants an old PS2 and 2 PSPs. If I ever come across a deal like that I would be lucky first off and extremely happy secondly.

    Life sucks.... gaming is so expensive

    guarantee no one will trade their 3ds for a psp and 2 ps2's but they for sure will buy them from you on ebay...that would put you a hundred or so closer... try cutting a few lawns, or something,,,,,and the dsi price didnt drop for a year or two.

    I'll cut off my head if the price isn't dropped before the PSvita launches. Probably to $200.

    I will try to sell them separately then. I can maybe get 80 at most for both PSPs but the PS2 won't go for more than 40 unless I get lucky.


    Oh yeah I completely forgot about PSVita. I wonder how much that is gonna be. Knowing Sony it might go for 300. Just because they enjoy overpricing shit.


    I been looking for a job trust me I have. But nobody is hiring in the summer around where I live. You can't imagine how many places I have gone asking for jobs. All I have gotten as a response is we will contact you.

    it's already announced that psvita will cost $250 for wifi only and $300 for 3g.

    that's why many are expecting for a 3ds price drop.

    Don't expect a price cut anytime soon, Nintendo already said they aren't threatened by the PSvita price. Maybe in a year or two but not right now.

    The UK has already had a massive price drop since launch, from £230 and now selling around £160. The DSi's used to be £149.99 for a long time. I don't see a further 3DS price cut for the UK in a long time.

    Same price I got a Cosmos Black one too.

    Only 40 quid more than a DSi XL it's a no brainer IMO.

    7.25% tax rate on a 250$ item=/=300 bucks. You want high taxes come here to Chicago, 9.75% on normal items, 2% on food, and 12.75% on beverages (YES A FUCKING BEVERAGE TAX) is truly BS.

    Mine was like, 270 something there is no way yours past that.

    the tax here is 13% for everything stop complaining, and extra tax on electronics for a "enviroment disposal fee" paying the extra fee just makes me want to chuck it in a river when I'm done with it.

    It's not possible to be $300 with California sales tax. $274.36 would be the price with the highest sales tax in California which is 9.75%. The sales tax in California is anywhere from 7.25%-9.75% depending on where in the state.

    I bought mine with a Hori SP, a pouch and a game for S$399 (US$324.45)

    Pretty much worth it I guess [​IMG]

    EDIT: now the shop is selling the bundle for S$379

    3ds console and 3 games + carrying case $375 dollars (£234). yeah i know it's a lot in dollars but in the uk that price is not so bad.
