Nintendo talks 3DS price

Hardware will be within current range's 'architecture'

Nintendo has discussed the RRP we can expect to see for 3DS when it launches - and said it will be within the current range's "architecture".

You'll spot no indication of whether or not it's going to be more or less expensive than DSi XL in there - but at least it doesn't look like we're anticipating a £400 beast.

"[On] price, we haven't made any kind of announcement at the moment, but the Nintendo DSi is available for around £129.99," said UK marketing manager James Honeywell this week.

"The Nintendo DSi XL, with the larger screens, is around £159.99. So obviously, it's going to fit, kind of, somewhere within that kind of architecture."

The Nintendo 3DS is due for release any time before the end of March, 2011.
