    people only pirate cause they can't afford them, but $4 dollars aint that bad an increase if you consider inflation has never affected the games industry before.

    Obviously he thinks DS games are $25 nowadays, when they're roughly $35.

    Even if the prices increase by that small amount, it won't be that big of a deal.

    If it does have higher game prices, it wouldn't make much of a difference to me.
    I already purchase $60 Wii games on a monthly basis.

    Then again, Patcher's saying it.

    If the 3DS will cost $300 in America, it will cost €300, which is around $385.
    I hate to be a European. Since they only seem to replace the $ sign with a € sign here.
    Unless they lower it to €250. That'd be okay.

    Who cares I pay $64 for import DS games (not including shipping), it's not a surprise 3DS games will be more expensive. Of course the Japanese price for the 3DS is around $336 US so $299.99 would be a good estimate for a US price.

    How dare they raise the price by $4! This is an outrage! $4 is just too damn expensive. I could see $3.99, but $4? I'm going to stop buying games in protest.

    The guy just states the obvious all the time, of course games will cost me than the DS ones. DS games are far far cheaper to make and 3DS will probably come in line to Wii development costs.

    You can all ready pre-order Legend of zelda 3d, kid icarus uprising, MGS 3d, paper mario 3d and kingdom hearths 3d from a swedish website.
    all the games go for 449 SEK, 59,59$ about the same price DS games cost

    This was to be expected.

    This happens with every system, it'd be news if it didn't happen to this one.

    The game titels are really good when I look at the line up at release date. I don't know how the games after the release will be though.... The price seems a bit high.
