Just the basic 3DS by itself (plastic, data chips, ORIGINAL buttons))= $160.00 Technology for screens= $40.00 Extra new buttons= $5.00 Color for 3DS= $5.00 Making some extra profit= $10.00 Total cost for the 3DS= $220.00 This is my best guess.

I'll say $249, a bit expensive for a handheld. but it's the only kind on the market so they'll take a little off the top! Around here is $129 for a DS, $170 for a DSi, so $249 for a 3DS sounds about right for what they'll sell it for.

Most estimates put it in the $180-$220 price range. I'm bracing myself for a $250 price so I'll either be prepared or pleasantly surprised. :-)

I'm guessing $250. Just a guess but it seems believable

Dang, that's worth even more than the Nintendo Wii. I'm guessing this might make the Wii to appear somewhat obsolete?

:lol:

You're a fool if you believe that. Nintendo isn't Sony, they're not gonna sell their handheld at such a high price.

They've never even had a home console sell for that price. So, no.

Bundled with a game for $250 I recon. 2 different bundles - PilotWings, or Nintendogs.

It won't cost more than the Wii ($200) unless it's some stupid bundle, then it might go as high as $250

That's a bit harsh. That's an Australian site and therefore uses Australian dollars. When the DSi came out it was $299. So that's not too unbelievable. For the Autralian market. DS games in Australia are $69.95. =/

239.99 in canada i bet

#18 Posted by thehunter1900 (309 posts) -

wasn't the gba 125 euro on release and the DS was about 150 euro?

so i think that the 3DS can actually go for the 175 + demo. and about 200 euro combined with a game?.

i can remember that the DS launced with a demo + freeware application with it.

I think it will be $299.99 The brand spanking new DSi and DSi XL were the same price so I think a brand spanking new 3DS will cost the same. -fcppatterson

Japan will be 25000 yen, NA and the rest of the World is unknown, though since I live in America my guess will be around $249.99.

I wish I had the power to infuence Regie to announce when it will be released and its price. Because I cant wait much longer.

$200 is how much it will cost. Nintendo will sell it for a small gain at first, then as millions start buying it within 6 months the cost of manufacturing it will deplete leaving them with a huge gain on each and they don't even need to adjust the price. Boom instant sell.

If they wanted to be ****s about it though they could put a 300 price tag on it and really throw the world on its head.

Maybe about 350, $ but worth every penny for the graphics which are on par with PS3 if not better.Dolohov27
It is NOT going to be on par graphics wise with the PS3.
#25 Posted by hyksiu (1098 posts) -

You're foolish! It won't be on par with ps3. Ps3 is higher resolution....

Reading the few post above me made me think I was in sw...

I think and I wont change my mind till price for NA is announced, that the price here in america will start at almost $250, if it doesnt sell like hotcakes, which isnt likely, expect a price drop in the first month. or expect Nintendo to make it more appealing like bundles, special limited casings, etc.
