Nintendo 3DS Priced And Dated For Australia

The Allure Media offices were filled with passionate discussion yesterday about what price Nintendo would unveil for the 3DS handheld. Mark from Kotaku was adamant we’d see a $399 price point and a March 31 launch, while I was leaning towards a $379 price point on the same day. We were both partially wrong.

Nintendo announced official pricing at an event last night, and it’s relatively good news. $350 and available from March 31. That’s still a premium over the $US250 price our American friends will enjoy, but on the relative scale of US to AU Nintendo pricing, it’s still a step forward.

The question now is who’s going to buy one?
