    Ok tomorrow the official pricing and release dates for the 3ds will be relvealed. even if it is just Japan it will let us know how much we need roughly. However before this I want everyone who reads this to put down any final guesses for pricing and release dates.

    p.s. after the confrence just chat about anything to do with the 3ds as there wouldn't be any point in guessing as we will know then :)

    For North America, I expect a mid November to early December release with a price point of 200 dollars. In Europe, I expect an early 2011 release at a price of 200 Euros or Pounds.

    I'm torn between two release dates: October 10, 2010 (because abbreviated, it's 10/10/10, a very nice-looking date) and November 21 (because it's very much in line with what has been said before). Both of them are Sundays, which is when Nintendo usually releases new hardware.

    For pricing, I think $200-$220 USD sounds about right.

    Sometimes being a pessimist is the right way to go.......

    It is right indeed. You have to look at it from a worst case scenario, so if its better, its great, but if it takes a turn for the worst, well then you predicted it and was ready for it.

    I prefer realism instead of optimism and pessimism; if you know it's going to be a good price, then guess a good price, and if you know it'll be a bad price, then guess a bad price! Plus, if you guess pessimistically, then you will have a bad attitude for it, and if you guess optimistically, then you may have a good feeling at first, but after, if you're disappointed, you will be disappointed for a long time; it's better to feel the same the whole way, otherwise you'll feel bad sooner or later.


    On topic, was anyone disappointed that their guesses were wrong/happy their guess was right? Qaiz, why does your avatar say "Page Top" in Japanese? :confused:

    You speak Japanese? :D

    Meh. Sure, I was a little pissed, but hey, I know the delay is for the better. And the unexpected three-month extension will ensure developers have absolutely no excuse to put out bad launch games.

    I know a little Kanji, and all Hiragana and Katakana characters, and I know a lot of words, but just don't ask me to translate something like this! I never knew you spoke German until I read that German newspaper thread and you translated it!

    Yeah, the three month extension will make really good quality games, and the chance to maybe, oh, I don't know, throw in Donkey Kong 64 3D (VERY wishful thinking. . . >_<)!
