The recent release of Nintendo’s newest handheld, the 3DS, has me questioning its expensive price tag. Priced out at $249.99, the 3DS runs roughly $110 more than the original DS did when it was first launched. In a time when home consoles start at $249.99, I find it hard to justify spending so much on a portable gaming system. What makes the 3DS so special besides the 3D? What sets the 3DS apart from Nintendo’s failed Virtual Boy?
The games are what will ultimately set the 3DS apart. Besides Wario Land, the Virtual Boy didn’t have much going for it. So far, I haven’t seen any games that have me clamoring for the new system. Have you?
