When Nintendo showed off the 3DS, the handheld gaming console that would let you play 3D games without the need of glasses (and letting you turn it off whenever you want, too), there general consensus was a good one. It seemed, even if Nintendo didn't have an exact time frame for a launch date (at the time, which they've recently fixed
), that the company had a winner on their hands. But, immediately following the announcement, and with Nintendo cleverly not including a price tag, the questions began circulating: how much would it cost. Well, it seems Nintendo didn't have a clear idea either, at the time, but thanks to the positive reports from this year's E3, and the subsequent "gushing" from the media regarding the device, Nintendo made up their mind. And it was a pricey decision.
