Gaming News: "I'd Give Anything"
Posted: Friday October 1st, 2010 by

I was initially suspect of yet another DS sku especially when that sku revolved around the idea of offering a built in 3D format for a hand held device. But then all of the 3DS news that came out of E3 was extremely positive. Unfortunately for we gamers, that extremely positive response has convinced Nintendo's President and CEO, Satoru Iwata, and the analysts who advise him that the price point for the 3DS should be $300. [more info] Oof.

I get it though. When the Wii hit, people were stuggling to get their hands on them for nearly two years. People were selling them on eBay for $1000. Nintendo does not want the 3DS on eBay, so their best bet is to set a high purchase price and slow the demand some.

Personally, I won't be paying $300 for a 3DS. I also won't be paying the $250 crazy ass Michael Pachter predicts.

What about you guys? 3D capable hand held system worth $300 to you?
