Nintendo 3DS Priced and Dated

Nintendo's most anticipate handheld has a little more information revealed today. The Nintendo 3DS will be available March 27th for a whopping $249.99. While the price may come as a bit of a shock, the features were even more of a head scratcher.

  • Seamless multitasking of multiple applications
  • Camera allowing 3D photos to be taken and displayed
  • Friends List
  • 3D without the need for glasses
  • Backwards compatibility with DS games as well as DSiWare transfer
  • Free Applications
  • Nintendo Market allowing access to classic GBA and GBA Color games
While the battery life and price seem to be the biggest snags for me so far, all I hear is good things from the system. It is shaping up nicely, and seems Nintendo is once again changing the game up with innovation. I think I will wait and see for myself before throwing down that much, however.

Here's a look at the 3DS interface and features:
