      The pricing for North America and Europe hasn’t been announced yet. Historically, the straight Yen-to-Dollar conversion of Japanese prices is NOT what ends up being the price in North America, etc. (As Andy points out in our staff round table, the original DS would have launched at $200 instead of $150 if we’d used the direct Yen-to-Dollar conversion.)

      So have hope! My guess is that it will launch at $250.

    Actually that’s inaccurate. DS and Wii were more in the US at launch then it japan with conversion. On the DS reiterations were cheaper. No guarantees of $250. Personally $250 with pack -in is the absolute most I’ll spend and that’s pushing it.

    Personally I hope the VC brings other handhelds stuff. I would love an import wonderswan section.

    For prices see

    Original DS @ launch – Japan: 15000 yen ($146 at release) / North America: $149.99

    DS Lite @ launch – Japan 16800 yen ($144 at release) / North America: $129.99

    25,000y = Wii launch price At the time, $204. We got 249 with the game.

    DSi @ launch – Japan 18900 yen ($171 at release) / North America: $169.99

    DSi XL @ launch – Japan: 20000 yen ($224 at release) / North America: $189.99

      Thanks for the conversions Kisaki! I noted that you actually listed conversions based on the exchange rates at the time of release– good eye for detail.

      Either way, I was not guaranteeing a $250 price. It was my guess and a reiteration, most importantly, that the North American and European prices are not announced. We’ll have to wait before we can justifiably react to any prices that are confirmed for us.

      Kisaki: Thanks for pointing out that there’s no set formula for converting Nintendo’s Japan and North American prices — every system has fluctuated cost-wise.

      Also, like I said on the podcast, I believe we’ll see new Virtual Console systems slowly rolled out over the next couple of years.

    We have Neo Geo on Wii, that means we could have Neo Geo Pocket, right? That’d be awesome :D

    Man I would Love Neo Geo Pocket and Lynx stuff too. Oh guys could you correct me if I’m wrong but in terms of 1st party stuff I believe the only ones with with a spring 2011 date confirmed are Pilotwings, Steel Diver, and Zelda? Oh give us your thoughts on what first party title if any would be a good pack in. I’m think Pilotwings caus eit shows off Miis.

    PS I got the price conversion from NEOGAF.

    PPS I used to read this site alot in the early 2000s and psot on your old forums. Glad to see the direction its moving in and thanks for reading my feedback.

    Any word yet as to whether link capabilities of Game Boy and Game Boy Color games will be available in their Virtual Console iterations? That would be rad.

    I’ve also got to say that I’m a huge fan of Kevin Butler– his speech at E3 was one of the best moments of the expo, at least from what was made available to me at my computer. While he may not be bringing in sales, he’s definitely bringing in the laughs.
