anybody expecting less in 2017 was delusional. new hardware, you'll have to flip a coin

though i have to say i was buying into the $250 talk for awhile

For that price it doesn't look good.
Really needed to be $249 at the most.
Going against the already established Xbone and PS4 is not going to be easy! Especially for people burnt by the WiiU.

I never really believed in $250 for a device that could play console games on the go.
If the lineup is good I'm ok with $300, but I don't know that the 3DS public will be.

Nintendo finally trying to compete against Sony and Microsoft. Could be a good first step in the right direction.

He weirdly said $299 in "North America" I thought. I'd be shocked if that was the case, but I didn't see anything about other currencies

$299 denotes USD, 299$ is CAN. That thing is going to be 400$ in Canada, making it more expensive than Xbone or PS4. DOA.

WOW!!! Predicted $300 and I can't believe that Nintendo actually went that high. Was hoping for $200 to get me back into Nintendo. Oh well. Maybe next gen.

LOL JOKE POST? Nintendo's online service is RIDICULOUSLY BAD. You don't buy Nintendo consoles to play online. The community is always so small that it's not worth charging for it. Not sure WTF was Nintendo thinking here other than "How can we inflate the price even more?".

I don't know dude. I don't pay for online gaming, but I assume they aren't going to provide Wii U tier service for a monthly fee.

Really dumb move when you consider what PS4 and XBO offer. Then factor in paid online which will most likely be a substandard service.

It's going to be £250 in UK isn't it. :(

Out of my price range, especially when needing BotW and a pro controller.

Hah, no, I wish. That would basically be a straight currency conversion.

I reckon £280 and that's too much for me.

Going to Starbucks which is next to my GS by 7:00 a.m. to get my pre-order in. $50 difference from my dream price isn't enough to sway me.
