I'm not sure if it's the same for systems, but prices for, say PSP games for example convert to like $71US over in Japan whereas they're never more than $40 here. I'm hoping the same will be true for the 3DS when it comes here, but I'm still gonna wait for a price drop or two.

I was thinking that too.

Japanese are willing to shell out a lot more for video games than we are. Usually the ratio is about 2/3rds of the Japanese price. If it's $300 there, it'll probably be $200 here.

Because no matter how good it is, it will never be as good as a fully fledged flagship Capcom title for the major consoles.

Stop being such a whore and just be happy they're releasing another title in the series instead of letting it wither and die.


I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art.

I agree for the most part, but at least the 3DS is in 3D, which a normal TV doesn't do.  PSP games for example offer nothing over a console version.

The ability for me to play them on my lunch break at work and/or on the toilet?  I work in Southeastern Wisconsin.  There is nothing for me to do for an hour.


I didn't mean to insult the PSP.  I'm just saying that PSP games are basically just console games that are portable, so at least we get the 3D gimmick for MML.  Otherwise, it's just a matter of opinion, like with Valkyria Chronicles 2 and 3.

It's been a long time since I jumped on a system day one (PSX) but I'll more than likely get this when it comes out...provided I can try it at least once to make sure it doesn't give me a headache and to also see if the effect is cool.

One thing that kind of annoys me is that the 3D screen is the top screen and not the bottom screen. It's more natural for my eyes to look at the bottom screen when I'm playing a game. Is this the same for anyone else?

I keep thinking though - even if it is $250, that will only be for the US.

It'll probably be $265 in Canada (as a rough guess), plus the HST (15% in Ontario) which means it'll be $300 or more with tax in Canada.

No thanks.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Likewise - I got my head in books anyways and there's noooo way I'd sucker to that price.  I'd need a price drop and something SO GOOD that the cashier could say it costs $1,000 dollars - but not before I could say "Debit".

Also Mega Man Legends on 3DS is a fucking tragedy.

Shut up and be grateful the game will be made at all.

Anyways, the Japanese price is 25000, that probably means it'll be $250 here.

3DS is definitely looking like the better choice.

Funny how Japanese are almost giving up large titles on PS3 and going handheld-crazy.  No?  Maybe too general a statement.
