    A accessory designer has just leaked the Nintendo 3DS release date today. The man in question works at Keysfactory, a company that manufactures accessories.

    Well long story short, he has leaked out that the 3DS will hit shelves on the 20th of November. This is very similar to other statements and estimates.

    His Tweet is as follows
    His tweet has now 'mysteriously' been deleted and replaced with a new tweet

    A Japanese reader has also pointed out that the date could very well be correct because it fits together, and its too much to be a coincidence.

    • Wii 2006/12/2 (Saturday)
    • DSi 2008/11/1 (Saturday)
    • DSiXL 2009/11/21 (Saturday)


    The date leaked is also a Saturday, what a coincidence huh?

    Please take this with a grain of salt, we will have the official date announced in the 29th of September.

    Under £200? the best you can hope for is if it sells for that; the 3d-with-no-glasses gimmick is gonna sky-rocket the price, and it being the only gaming device with it doesn't help either; lets just hope they suprise us all.

    Well I have £2500 on my account for my gaming needs so what ever the price I don't really care, but it cant be over £200 since that would mean it will be $300, which is more that a PS3.

    I know people are thinking it will be over £200, but you guys are just over pricing the thing. It has a GPU from 2006-2008 for God sake. Nintendo always have decent prices, and btw the DS was launched at £99.

    The DSiXl has gone down to $169.99 and the DSi has gone down in price to $149.99, which leaves the 3DS open to $200

    No one on earth will pay more then $200, never mind £200 lmfao

    The 3D camera is just 2 VGA cameras, the inside camera is just a VGA camera, the 3D tech isn't amazing, not in a bad way, but it isn't worth more then £200.

    The iPod touch is an Apple device and even that is under £200.

    You guys juts price things randomly, it doesn't matter about the gimmick, no one will pay over £250 max.

    And thats pushing it

    I agree, I'd pay $250 for it comfortably, $350 max. I have a feeling that it's going to have like a $600 price tag, but then I remember it's Nintendo so it'll be fairly reasonable.

    Japan release date maybe?
    and early next year Europe and USA?
    I highly doubt it will cost more $250 let alone $600
    The tech inside is not that expensive, i would be really surprised if it costs $250, it will be almost as expensive as the PS3 and 360 Slim. Hecks i remember reading reports than the iPad only cost $260 to manufacture and it sells for $500+

    I think qaiz it is correct
    $200 is the most likely price for it
