Here's some pricing too:
UK game prices already up:
Mario Kart £50
To put that in context, games rarely ever go past £40 here and if they do, it's only about £44.99 and not for very long as they don't shift off the shelves. Even with the drop in sterling, this goes way above that. As for the rest of Europe...jeez, Nintendo really don't like you. The bottom line is, it's just too expensive for what it is.
They've had the same words by publishers etc thrown behind it as usual, but nothing to actual back it up. Oh, and apparently the charge will last up to 6 hours as a handheld and only 2.5 for more taxing games like Zelda.
