    Way to expensive! No one will buy many games with those prices!

    While I have multiple sources of income, I'm not much of a fan of an "increase" in price. But to be honest, as long as it isn't over the standard console game price, (Which tends to be 59.99 in North America or 49.99 for PC games. The only exception is games by ActiBlizzard) I won't complain.

    Oh please. Any hobby involving technology or entertainment will eat away your money.


    Besides, most of the users here will be pirating anyway.

    That doesn't sound too bad.

    Then again, I live in Australia. We pay $100 for Wii games and about $70-$100 for DS games.

    Go us! [​IMG]

    I suppose the one good thing about this is WAY less shovelware, meaning that developers will think twice before creating a shitty game unlike now.

    Aslong as the price doesnt go over 40 euro for a very good game (think TWEWY en Golden Sun material) and it stays under 30 for other games Im not one to complain, I will probably end up buying it legally.... well most of it anyway

    My guess:

    Budget-priced games will be $29.99.
    An average 3DS game will be $39.99.
    AAA titles could go as high as $49.99.

    But according to that article......maybe add 10 bucks to each category.


    Personally, I think my initial guess would be a practical amount to charge for the games. What that article suggests prices could be are just too high to realistically market a 3DS, IMO.

    If they start trying to sell a handheld game for 60 bucks, I'll stop bothering with handheld gaming systems altogether. That's just too much money.

    Well if it exceeds 55 bucks then I'm not gonna buy it.(the game that is)But you'll never know cause some titles may be worth the price.

    Instead of charging more moneis, why not just make better games? [​IMG] = profit
    Unfortunately shovelware such as "Imagine: equestrian" or some shize sells as well if not better than quality games like LoZ

    People will not buy a £90-£120 3DS game over here it just ain't gonna fly, Xbox and PS3 games are only £40 new and I'm sure they cost a lot more to develop.

    Even if the games are only on par with X360 and PS3 games they will still fail, parents won't want to buy a game for their kids at £40-£50

    Think of it movie-wise like different films have different budgets but you're still going to pay the same amount no matter which movie you see. But yes I think they could up the prices a little, I'm expecting that.

    Eh. I can't see 3DS games costing as much as PS3/360 games. Not by a long shot.

    Dear god... this will cost outrageously in the Philippines. A normal DS game costs P 3,000 [$68.30]

    Man. Guess I'll resort to pirating, if ever there will be a hacking method.

    It'll be about the same price, but companies will just have to be sure they sell alot, which = less shovelware.
