3DS Pricing Insanity

Standard

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?

I loved this game!

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?
