Finally got a price and release date!

March 27th 2010 and $250. You all think this is appropriate?

That's a sunday so I am fully prepared to enjoy that whole day for gaming. I just need to find another 200 for this since I already have $50 down on it.

A bit high, but for what you get, seems worth the price in the end.

Cool. Though I was originally expecting $200, I'm just happy it's not $300 after the Japanese price was revealed.

... get ready, credit card.

Well, it's gonna release on a Sunday, so at least I won't have to call in "sick" to work, lol!

$250 is higher than I expected, but... hmm. Sounds like it might be worth it.

@Simbabbad

Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with that. If it were more I would have been upset but any less, well you're right. I fully expect the games to justify it too. I won't be complaining at all.

@Hinph

Good point. There's always the credit card, haha.

I'm cool with that. I'll sell my DS Lite to help pay for it. The rest will come from birthday money in February.

We're Americans. Irresponsible use of credit is what we do best!

$250 is a lot for a handheld, I have no problem paying it because I'm a Nintendo fanatic, but for the average consumer, we'll see if they will be willing to shell out more than a Wii and 360, and slightly less than a PS3...

@Simbabbad
You're probably right, will still be interesting to see how well it performs compared to the DS and Wii.

I missed some of the press conference. Did Nintendo announce which games will be available day one?

@Orbital74

So Kid Icarus is a launch window game? That's news: at the Japanese event they only said "2011".

With Pokemon Black/White releasing three weeks before it, I'm happy that I'll have that to tide me over.

March will be a great month for Nintendo fans.

@Pandareus

I believe Reggie said early on that every game shown at the event would be released before E3. Or maybe he said every playable game. Which bodes well for Kid Icarus either way, since it's playable at the show.

I went back and read a couple liveblogs and that seems to be what he was saying. I hope that's correct, because I may buy a 3DS earlier than expected if KI releases soon.

You guys getting blue or black?

Black. I don't really like how the dual-color systems look...

I sort of like the metallic blue, it was the first one we saw at E3... it seems like the default color. The black is sweet too, and probably more practical in the long run, people will notice it less on the train ect.

Well... looks like I'm gonna have to wait. Unless my dad is really excited to see this system like he was with the Wii.

If anything, I might ask for it from my aunt for Christmas this year.
