Nintendo 3DS Japanese Price: $300

The upcoming 3D-capble portable gaming device has a set price point that will certainly burn our wallets. Unveiled at a press conference earlier today, the much anticipated mobile console will sell retail in Japan for 25,000 yen, or around $300. That’s twice the original DS’s release price of $150. Gamers in the EU can only dread the possibility of a €300 3DS.

The device will also feature a Virtual Console for Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games as well as a bundled 2GB SD card to hold them.

Japanese fans can expect the system to hit stores on February 26th, 2011. No confirmation on release dates for the Western audiences yet however.

Hope for a price cut everyone!
