Here is some news we have all been waiting for about the Nintendo 3DS. It is being reported that the Nintendo 3DS has a date and possible NA pricing. As reported earlier this morning we where shown the 3DS line up and now we have some other important information for you to take a look at.
· Nintendo 3DS launches February 26th, 2011 in Japan and likely a March 2011 release date for North America and Europe.
· Nintendo 3DS launch price to be ¥25,000 ($299 USD) and will likely launch in North America at $249 to $299.
· Investment community disappointed by release schedule; EEDAR dissents.
· A 2011 launch provides additional development time and support from third-parties.
Looks like I am going to have to mark my calender for March 2011. I thought we would have seen the 3DS released in time for the holiday season. But one thing, does that possible NA price have you up in arms? Let’s face it you can buy a console for that price, so will you be buying the 3DS when it is launched or wait a year to see if the price goes down.
