3DS Release Dates & Prices

Posted January 19th, 2011 at 5:13 PM by Kenshin5

Going off of the info in Captain Fabio thread 3DS are going to be released and priced as followed.

Japan: 26th February 2011 - ¥25,000
UK: 25th March - £229.99
Europe: 25th March 2011 - €249.99
US: 27th March 2011 - $250
Australia: Unknown

First off I am glad it is priced at only $250 for the US, since I was expecting it too be around $300 dollars. What I didn't expect is the unfair pricing for the rest of the people getting it. I did currency conversion and it seems like Euro has to pay 64 more then the US and the UK 73. It is above me why Nintendo priced them higher and not equal to the US. Hopefully this doesn't detract from sales, but if it does I don't blame the European audience from being turned off by the prices.

The launch games are mah in my opinion.

  • Pilotwings Resort
  • Nintendogs + Cats
  • Steeldiver
  • Dead or Alive
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
  • Kingdom Hearts
  • Super Street Fighter IV 3D
  • Asphalt 3D
  • Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D
  • Ridge Racer 3D
  • Resident Evil: The Mercenaries
  • LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
  • My Garden From EA
  • Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D From Konami
  • Contra
  • Frogger
  • Pro Evolution Soccer
  • Madden NFL
But, this seems to be the case all the time so nothing out of the ordinary. I will just need to sit by patiently waiting for Megaman Legends 3 and Paper Mario, but at least there is Black and White too look forward too before 3DS releases.

    P-pilotwings? Oh jeeze, I remember playing that on SNES and N64. Haha, what a random game to put as a launch.

    Not liking the launch line up. My main concern is Ocarina of Time and any future Pokemon games. Like mentioned in the thread, I need to figure out what's up with my tolerance of handheld games lately. Like I said, they've been making me sick lately. That price on the 3DS will keep me away for some time anyway. It's...ugh.
