    Wow, was not expecting that price. I thought it was going to be 250$ max.

    $300 = £189, throw on some obvious extra pounds becuase shit is more expesnive here and i'm guessing its gonna be about £200-215. I think I will wait a while.

    You'll change your tune when you see it in action for yourself. I will bet £10 on that fact.

    Ok, 3DS having Gameboy games on there is totally awesome and all but......$300? I just got through this year waiting to get an XBOX 360 for christimas, but damn, I hope I can get a job to afford that. I'll probally trade up my DSi, cause it's not as useless as an exchange than the DS Lite having the gameboy slot. They better be offering pokemon gold though, or all hell will break loose from me.

    I haven't even seen it, and 300 bucks is fine. Even without the 3D, a portable GameCube-powered system is already a sell.

    Of course I'd prefer less... like 5 bucks, but 300 is fine.

    Everything sounds great except the price. $300 is an immediate no buy for me. I simply cannot justify spending that kind of cash on a portable system these days.

    Ditto. Will wait for a used one or a major price drop in -- 2 years? Sigh.

    At least the coming out next year will give me time to save a few bucks a month.

    Isn't this $300 (Y25,000), in Japan? Shouldn't that automatically mean that it'll be some what cheaper when it comes out in the US? Afterall, almost all products tend to be more expensive in Japan.

    Um NGW, you've got one zero too many. Y250,000 would be closer to $3000.

    $300 = no sale. Way too much, regardless of how awesome it is.

    Call me when it drops to half that.

    I think I will withhold judgment for now until we get a confirmed US price.

    $300? That's about as outrageous as the Playstation 3's initial price of $500-$600.

    But hell, if it's got Virtual Console, it's worth the money for me! :D

    I don't think I like the idea of it randomly communicating with other people's devices.
