A $250 price point feels more at home on the unfortunately-named Vita than the 3DS.
Rumor is Nintendo’s new console will be called “Nintendo.” Which immediately brought back memories of going upstairs “to play Nintendo” as a kid. It’s what people called the NES at the time and it pretty much defined a generation. Can Nintendo do it again with this touchscreen-enabled, HD machine at E3 2011?
Does Nintendo know about Apple’s unintentional hat tip over at the Moscone today?
Nintendo takes a page from the competition it so hoped to distance itself with using the Wii and blames consumers for the 3DS’s lower-than-expected sales. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
Is it strange that the company that wanted to take gaming on a much simpler route than the competition is now rumored to be bringing a touchscreen, HD tablet controller to its alleged next-gen console, due out in 2012? Just curious.
…but I’m going to have an extra $250 in my pocket for the foreseeable future.
BREAKING: Popular company’s brand new hardware sells out in first week.
Developer High Voltage says the 3DS is “more powerful than the Wii.” Does that mean it’s, like, two Wii’s taped together?
SO I was wrong about the $189 3DS price point, but then again I was wrong about the pessimistic $300 one too.
Is $250 just right? Suppose we’ll have to wait and see how the 5,000 demo units that will be sweeping the U.S. in the lead up to the big 3DS launch March 27 perform in the wild.
Add “region-free” to the list of nerd buzzwords (like “open” and “walled garden”) that get in a product’s “negative” category in the months before it comes out and are then are utterly forgotten when everyone realizes 99.9% of the owners couldn’t give a shit.
