Why Most 3DS Games Will Be 35-40 Dollars At Launch

    I have a strong belief that the 3DS games will be 35 to 40 dollars at launch, and here's why:

    1. Amazon has listed MGS Snake Eater and Contra 3DS at a preorder price guarantee of 35 dollars.

    2. Iwata has said that "3DS games will be priced not too far off from DS games."

    3. Most high profile DS games are 30-35 dollars, and a 5 dollar increase would fit that frame.

    This is merely a supposition, but I think this to be true. Do you guys agree or disagree?

    ^I doubt it would cost seventy dollars to buy a 3DS video game, as Wii video games are only 50 dollars!

    Yeah, five dollars fits that tolerance. But I think we'll start to see budget titles hit quickly as the shovelware gets going and forces down prices - possibly the only good effect it seems to have!

    I never knew shovelware brought down prices of AAA games. What were the prices of the DS launch titles?

    I think I've said this before, but I presume your games will probably cost the same amount; 30-35 Euros perhaps?

    Does your country have Amazon? You could check there for the prices to preorder MGS 3DS and Contra to get a picture of how much 3DS games will cost in Ireland.

    There will be Contra on the 3DS? I hope they won't be too much more than $35-$40, since included with the 3DS is about $300-$350, depending on what the launch price is.

    See for yourself. Qaiz, have you even tried the 3DS in real life, or are you basing your judgement on it like I am?

    How does it look bad? Sure, the news is getting old, but it will have graphics equivalent (or maybe even more powerful than) the PS2, and the amount of games at launch is huge! Did you go to E3 and try out the 3DS? If you did, then maybe the 3DS isn't for you; if you didn't, then don't judge a book by its cover. My friend's strategy is he's going to wait until someone he knows (most likely me) has him try it out, and if he likes it, he'll get it; if he doesn't, he won't get it. Maybe that would be a good strategy for you!
