Pachter Says 3DS Will Likely Cost $250 in the States, and May Miss March Release


Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has been analyzing (or doing whatever it is that analysts do) and has told Joystiq that he believes the 3DS won’t be launching in the US in time for the targeted March release date that was mentioned by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata during the 3DS press conference. He has also said that he believes the unit will run $250 when it comes stateside. This comes after NoA boss Reggie Fils-Aime mentioned that the device would reach all major markets by March 31,

Pachter Says 3DS Will Likely Cost $250 in the States, and May Miss March Release

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has been analyzing (or doing whatever it is that analysts do) and has told Joystiq that he believes the 3DS won’t be launching in the US in time for the targeted March release date that was mentioned by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata during the 3DS press conference.

He has also said that he believes the unit will run $250 when it comes stateside. This comes after NoA boss Reggie Fils-Aime mentioned that the device would reach all major markets by March 31, 2011.

His estimate is that the device will launch in April in the US and Europe. Even that price sounds a bit high, and would run $50 more than the Wii, making it especially expensive for a handheld device. However, Pachter did say in a post-E3 episode of Bonus Round that he spoke with Fils-Aime and was told that the 3DS costs much more to manufacture than the XL and that Nintendo does not plan on selling the device at a loss, which is worth keeping in mind as we all speculate pricing.
