Nintendo 3DS Price Point and Release Date finally revealed

Very early this morning (if you are in North America anyway), Nintendo finally unveiled its launch plans for its next generation handheld, Nintendo 3DS. The system hits store shelves early next year and will be $300. The 3-D system will launch in Japan on February 26th followed soon by a North American release. Check out the sample video above and sound off in the comments section!

Do you think $300 is too steep for a handheld system?

Mark my word guys, this is a MAJOR WIN for DSiWare. ZENONIA, probably my favorite title to hit the iPhone/iTouch, has hit DSiWare and is an amazing addition to your DS library.
