    It’s almost beyond cliche, but you suspect that the 3DS is one of those devices that truly have to be seen to be believed. And now, thanks to Nintendo, you’ll be able to make that happen – with two public demos of the 3DS being planned in Melbourne and Sydney this Thursday.

    As you’d expect the public events are being held in Myer’s Nintendo Connection booth in Sydney, and at the Nintendo Experience in EB Games in Melbourne. Expect a crowd of Oprah Winfrey standards at both venues, but sadly no Hugh Jackman launching head first into a Nintendo 3DS pod.

    Nintendo Experience
    EB Games, 67 Swanston Street, Melbourne
    Thursday, February 10 from 6.00pm to 9.00pm

    Nintendo Connection
    Myer Sydney City, 6th floor, 436 George Street, Sydney
    Thursday, February 10 from 6.00pm to 9.00pm

    Nintendo are also holding a major, press only, 3DS event tomorrow evening where we assume we’ll be told the Australian details for the 3DS launch. We’re still expecting a $399.95 price point and a release date of March 31, but we’ll know for sure tomorrow night..[/p]

    $399 x_x obviously telling us to import, I think it'll be more close to $350 but still not worth $100 over US price, DERPPP
