    Do you guys think that they may do the same thing in America & Europe? They want to get the most out the 3DS, therefore, they will break gamers' wallets in the process. The first step of Nintendo to start going for the high prices and start imitating Sony & Microsoft. Port your opinions folks.

    I won't be buying it due to the price immediately. Sorry Nintendo.
    I will buy it when it's at £100-£150 because as it is it's pretty ridiculous.

    Actually if Sony releases PSP2 soon I may have to go with that. Screw you Nintendo and your huge price tags.

    There were a lot of people saying they'd buy one "no matter the price".

    It's a commercial company, of course they want to make money with a hype!

    They have to get paid somehow. And in the end, people will still end up buying it.

    I am one of them. No cares, as long as it gives Nintendo quality!

    Um, iPhone 4 starts at $399. It's not 3D. It doesn't even have buttons.

    Just like everything else I have bought I'll wait for a price reduction or a new "better"/newer version and depends on how the flashcard business goes.

    The system is going to be of high quality. I was actually expecting it to be $300, so it's fine by me. I'm guessing most of you didn't take supply and demand into consideration. TONS of people want a 3DS, and Nintendo is going to raise the price according to that. It's not that they want to, but they have to do it to stay in business, or at least stay in business and be on top of their game.

    It has few decent games (no epic games as Nintendo's), no aumented reality, no glasses free 3D, no tag mode and streetpass mode, no buttons, no 2 3D cameras... The only thing I don't like about 3DS is the 3MP cameras.. They could make them 4, or 5 MP..

    Everything starts that way, How much was a PS3 on first release. It makes sense. Let all the rich people spend the money for the advantage of having the item early, then halve the price 6 months later and sell it to the masses.

    Not sure where the anger at Nintendo is coming from.

    I'll only buy it when I can also get a modchip along with it. Before that - nope.

    That's the reason why I skipped DSi etc.

    I'm getting two of them. I'm an American and I'll consume anything that's shiny and advertised, and in 3D.

    That's true and I never thought of buying a phone at full price I always go for the used or other options but for the 3DS will be different because I really love it.

    Hey.
    Guys.
    The DSi LL is 18000 yen. ($216)
    Guess how much the DSi XL costs over here?
    $169.99

    Don't jump on the price bandwagon so quickly when no western price has been announced.
