Nintendo’s 3DS Priced in Japan

We all know that the 3DS is the next big thing that will be sought after when Nintendo decides to release it here in the states. In Japan they’re already setting the 3DS price at ¥25,000 ($300 US), which is fairly steep for the system itself, but for it being the next generation handheld console and us game fanatics is $300 really that much? The 3DS will a 3.53” autostereoscopic 3D top screen with 800×240 resolution (400 pixels for each eye) and a 3.02” bottom touch screen with 320×240 resolution. It has three 0.3MP cameras – one inner and two outer – to deliver the stereo-3D effect and take stereo-3D pictures. It includes a motion sensor, a gyro sensor, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n controller, a Slide Pad that allows 360-degree analog input and so on. An adjustment slider that can increase, decrease or disable stereoscopic 3D (S3D) effect. The console uses DMP Pica 200 graphics processor. As announced previously, it will have a slot for SD cards as well as support cartridges for previous-gen DS systems. So for all it’s worth and all this goodness would it be too much if Nintendo asked for $300? Tell us what you think about the pricing, would it be fair or would a number closer to $200 good and why?
