Nintendo 3DS will be released in the U.S. in late March

Nintendo announced today that its 3DS system will be in stores March 27 of this year, and will cost $249.99. 

The Nintendo 3DS is a portable game console that is capable of producing 3D effects through the use of autostereoscopy. Autostereoscopy allows a user to experience 3D effects without glasses or headgear.  

The Nintendo 3DS was first announced on March 23, 2010, and was first seen on June 15 at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo. The system will feature backward compatibility with Nintendo DS series software, which includes the Nintendo DSi software.  

According to Gamasutra, Nintendo has confirmed 30 games that will be available for the launch of the 3DS. Twenty-five of these games have been confirmed for the United States so far, including Nintendogs & Cats, Steel Diver, Pilotwings Resort and Super Street Fighter IV 3D. 

Nintendo also noted that 3DS versions of Paper Mario, Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time are in development.  

The new system will be released February 26 in Japan and March 27 in the United States.

But the use and/or target market is different. I am not going to go out and buy my son and Android just so he can play games on it, and the Xbox will do us no good in the car. The price is high because they know people will pay it. I am glad to see they are continuing to build in backward compatibility as well.

Regardless or market i've always found it sad and depressing that people are willing to pay so much for Nintendo hardware which is never worth anywhere near as much as it sells for. Look at the Wii for instance, they must make a truly massive profit on the extremely outdated hardware, that even on release was obsolete. It's hard to think or another product that sells for so much more than the hardware costs.
People always moan about Apple doing this, but Nintendo somehow gets away with it? Why? it's rare you even see people mention this. Yet the extent at which Nintendo do this is often far worse than with Apples products. I know both companies are (usually) in different markets but the market shouldn't matter with this stuff at all. And atleast Apples products have some useful features.
With Nintendo you get nothing but motion control gimmicks, now '3D' gimmicks, and games that have been re-made so many times they give a new meaning to the line "beating a dead horse".
