Nintendo 3DS: Eye-popping 3D gets an eye-popping price tag

Get ready for yet another three-dimensional revolution. Nintendo is telling everyone to circle March 27th on the calender. That's the date their much anticipated 3DS hand-held will launch in North America. The system is the first of its kind to deliver 3D visuals without needing special glasses. Those eye-popping graphics will command an equally eye-popping price. The device will retail for $249.99 for the system alone. No pack in games have been announced.

Gamers are already complaining about the high price. The 3DS is the most expensive successor yet to the venerable Gameboy. It costs 66% more than the original Nintendo DS, with half the battery life. The 3DS will feature a handful of games at launch. Major Nintendo franchises such as Mario, Zelda, and Metroid are curiously missing from this collection.
