    [​IMG] Nintendo 3DS conference approaches
    Less than one day to go
    [​IMG]


    The time is almost upon us to find out the final details on the Nintendo 3DS when Nintendo host their press conference tomorrow, September 29, in Japan. [​IMG]

    The conference is expected to reveal details on the release date and price in land of the rising sun. Some media outlets have said there will be a November launch in Japan with an international launch in early 2011. We'll find out tomorrow if those predictions prove to be true.

    We still don't know for certain if the 3DS design shown at E3 is in fact the final design for the unit but you can expect to find out tomorrow.

    Foreign media have been barred from the conference, so it is expected to only deal with specific details for Japan. However, Nintendo of America has said they will release some basic information to media tomorrow as well.

    According to a leak obtained by IGN, the specs of the 3DS are as follows:

    -CPU: 2x 266MHz ARM11
    -GPU: 1x PICA200 133MHz GPU by DMP
    -RAM: 64MB
    -Video RAM: 4MB
    -Storage : 1.5GB internal flash memory

    UPDATE: The time for the conference has been announced. If you'd like to see what time that would be in your region you can check here.

    Updates will be posted on GBAtemp as they come. But until then feel free to speculate away!

    Hmmm, I'm still waiting for the price range. If my calculations are correct, it should cost between 270-350 dollars.

    Nope, there won't be liveblogs either I think.
    Only big japanese newspapers are allowed to enter the conference it seems.
    EDIT: Wait I think there will be liveblogs now... Agh I'm not sure [​IMG].
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The time difference between Tokyo(Japan) and here is just one-hour so I'll be getting the info(I hope so) one hour earlier here(Phil).Not that it matters though since I'll still get it.

    Wow, on a somewhat unrelated note, I'm more than a day behind Japan. Time is truly an amazing concept.

    On topic: it's 12 noon now, so that means it should start pretty soon!
