    Hey guys! Another great show :D Was nice to hear Andy around & you guys did a good job of staying within the limit more or less.

    RE: The price drop issue. I recently got gifted a DSi XL, but I’ll comment on this anyway. $20 is about £13 which is an absolutly laughable price drop. I think this isn’t intended to be a real price drop, but more of a coaxing to hint that something is going to happen. If this is by some chance a real attempt to lower the price of the DSi & DSi XL then lol-Nintendo, what are you doing? I hope the 3DS does come out soon, even though the DSi XL is still new, having the 3DS come out soon would mean new games & that is always nice… but at £195 (roughly $300) I won’t be getting it soon :(

      I don’t think the 3DS will be priced higher than the Wii (and by Wii, I mean its original £180 price point) but I think it’ll be about equal. The PSP launched at £160 I think so another £20 on top of that sounds quite fair. I don’t think Nintendo would push £200+ in the UK market, unless they see the 3DS as a hardcore-centric console for the first couple years of shelf life.

      And video games and hardware always cost so much more in Europe. It’s a real joy, lemme tell you.

    Hey guys. Personally I don’t think we’ll get 3DS this year atleats in the west. I think they dropped the price to milk one last holiday season for the DS.

      Asked a bunch of friends who didn’t have one, if this price change would convince them to go ahead & buy one, but each one of them said no. This isn’t a good enough price drop to warrent going out & getting one with the 3DS already announced, but not dated
