GetNews.jp Polls Japanese on Nintendo 3DS Price

   Japanese website GetNews.jp has released the results of a poll which seems to indicate that 79.7% of those participating think the Nintendo 3DS is expensive. The sampling size was ~1000 people and the results were as follows:

* Slightly Expensive: 32.2 percent (323 replies)
Expensive: 28.3 percent (284 replies)
* Too Expensive: 19.2 percent (192 replies)
Reasonable: 16.4 percent (164 replies)
* Slightly Inexpensive: 2 percent (20 replies)
* Inexpensive: 0.9 percent (9 replies)

   While polls like this are somewhat interesting to read about, they mean nothing. When the Nintendo 3DS is released next February, the Japanese will queue up for it like they did for the Playstation 3, the Nintendo Wii, the Playstation 2, and other gaming consoles. They even lined up for the Dreamcast back in the day. Nintendo will weave their magic and limit supplies of the 3DS so that they're assured of quick sellouts, lots of hype, and rabid devotion amongst the NDS fanbase.
