Default 3DS Price Set

Well its official, the 3DS will be coming to US March 27 for $249.99
I thought the price would have been set a bit higher...

So who is buying one?
I know I won't.

Is this a warning for things to come?
If the 3DS is $249.99, I can't imagine what the price of the next gen home consoles will be...

Why would I pay 249.99 for a device that would drop later in value?

That is especially high, considering the underpowered hardware it has. I guarantee you that its graphics will be crappy considering current technology, though they might look less crappy than otherwise because it is 3D. From my experiences, 3D makes things look better.

I never even got the DSi. Waste of my time, let alone my money. DS Lite is still perfectly playable and usable.

And a $250 price tag? I had no idea the economy/dollar was so bad off...

The graphics are better than the PSP's current graphics.

250 = psp bundles...
200-250 = wii and psp core bundles
250+ = 3DS!?
-----------------------------------------
Rules for 3DS
-Can't move with it (must be on a table or something)
-Can only play 30 mins. - 1 hour (you can turn off the 3D setting, but then why would you get it...)
oh yea, by "can only play" i mean, its suggested you only play that long, because other wise you would get the biggest eyestrain and migraine of your life.

You mean the PSP's current graphics, running on hardware from 2004?!? No way. That can not be true.

Wait, so the main (only?) thing different between the 3DS and the DSi is the fact that it puts 3D visuals onto the screen, that you watch with some of those 3D glasses?

How stupid...

It also is able to play more demanding games because it has a better CPU and GPU, and no you do not need the glasses.

Yeah. Now you can play Nintendo handheld games that have more than 10,000 triangles at one time.
