As you have already seen, Nintendo has finally announced the cost and release date of the Nintendo 3DS. But 25,000 YEN equates to about $300 US so figure it will cost roughly $230 here given the exchange rate, etc. That's a lot of dough for a handheld system. For the same price or pretty close you can get a home console that does much much more.
I am not one to generally knock Nintendo but that price seems high. I would have been more accepting of $150-$200, but breaking that $200 mark... ouch. Will I get one? Probably. I am sure that once I get my hands on one I will fall in love with the technology and want to buy it. It seems promising but I guess I have sticker shock right now and what sucks most of all is that we have to wait till March 2011 for a US launch. UGH!
