    might be true
    after all, they delayed the launch with about 4 months due to insufficient amount of 3ds' produced
    they might make it cost a ton and make it cheaper when they can make more

    Even if true, hardly anyone will buy it, they will be forced to sell it cheaper.

    I'm sorry? I don't know about other countries, but in the Netherlands, DS titles have always cost 45 Euros.
    So, eh. No big deal.

    That's about the 10th diffrent price I have seen. If it's anymore than £200 I won't be buying it even though I can afford it. I'm afraid a handheld over £200 is ripping the pish. Nintendo has disappointed me in the last few years with it's games, I have honestly lost faith in them.

    Honestly it's not their fault.
    If I were to blame anyway in this world then it's bloody pirates!
    I don't pirate myself. I buy any game I like.
    And to those who can't afford it:
    Simply not affording a game is not an excuse to go around stealing!
    I hope I didn't sound too mean... [​IMG]
    But yeah I blame pirates..

    I really don't think (or hope) it will be this much.
    I mean, it's than a PS3 here in The Netherlands! (which is €300)

    No, don't blame the pirates. Blame the 3rd parties dicking around just to make a quick buck on their shovelware. That's the reason many people pirate, to try before they buy (and never buy... I know I'm guilty of that). If Nintendo were smart, they would actually provide a channel with demos, and an open SDK for devs. Making a console more secure means nothing if you piss off the hackers.

    I kinda remember a saying that my teachers used to drill into my brain when I was younger. "Patience speaks louder than the sword" or something, I forget. I can't wait for the 19th now. [​IMG]

    PATIENCE IS GOLDEN BITCH :3

    I put my £10 deposit down for my 3DS earlier in my local GAME store. I've set £100 of my wages aside this month for the 3DS fund, another £100 next month, and I get paid on March 25th which seems the likely launch date, or close to it. So I'll have a maximum of about £400 to spend on the system and a couple of games. I'm banking on the system being about £200-£250, anything above that is obscene for a handheld IMHO. I don't care how advanced it is, it's still a handheld machine. If it costs more than the PS3 they can fuckin' forget it.

    The good news is that the lovely ladies in my local store are now keeping me up to date with any solid details as and when they arrive, so I expect my phone to be quite busy on the 19th.

    Seriously. I'm still predicting $269.99 for the US.

    This rumor means nothing to me. We must have heard 30 different price rumors by now.
