I couldn't imagine it being that cheap either. Though I definitely wouldn't complain if this was the case!

I'm guessing that they misplaced a decimal point or somethiing like that.

Okay...much lower than what my predicted $200...but you won;t be hearing me complainging!! Heck bring it down to $100!!!Smilie

I say it every time and I'll say it again: Why has cutting-edge-hardware to be expensive? Can be, but must not be...

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

I call 'retailer mistake'. Nintendo announced it as 25,000

Seems very cheap considering the price of a DS in the UK.

I do think the price will be good, maybe around

I think the retailer just put the wrong price on it, and removed it themselves, rather than accidental leak..

False alarm, false hopes! Damn you C3!

other currency prices don't usually mean anything though.

The price for the amercican DS Lite is around $130USD which is

I think I remember Nintendo saying it wouldn't be more than $250, not $250 exactly.

So anything up to $250 could be a good guess. A retailer mistake? Probably, but poses an interesting price point for the machine - I reckon a

Nintendo systems have always been quite cheap for what they are. I know people think 'OMFG IT'S GOT A HIGH PRICE TAG IT MUST BE COOOOL' but that really isn't the case. Especially in the case of XBox 360 where I've played quite a few demo games; it is graphically nice, but I think the characters/players (the sports games I've played have players based on real people) look a bit... scarily real, if you see what I mean. I don't want my games looking like that...

but back on topic,

I think

If its not expensive its not worth buying. I mean people prefer more expensive luxorious goods dont they. Its true that a more expensive good may not please you anymore than a cheap good but people are convinced that this is the case.

E.g : Nintendo = Tesco Value Baked beans like what 9p

Sony and Microsoft are Heinz: like what 46p. Which one will people most likely enjoy???

It is the case Shiny. I mean you are a girl. Wouldnt you prefer to buy more expensive make up or more expensive designer clothes then Tesco line clothes.

Ok so the Examples are extreme but you get the point

Wouldn't it be great if you were on that site, preordered the system before they took down the link and they had to honor it for you?

Wii for $185? Count me the f*ck in.
