Will 3DS games cost £40?

Some retailers appear to think so

Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata has said that 3DS games will likely be more expensive than standard DS ones, although he doesn't expect there to be too much of a cost difference.


We'll hopefully find out what the premium is next week at a 3DS press event in Amsterdam, but retailers have already begun listing titles for pre-order with RRPs of £34.99 and £39.99, MCV reports.

While existing DS titles carry a typical RRP of between £30 and £35, GAME and The Hut are listing multiple 3DS titles with an RRP of £39.99, £5 more than those listed by Indie retailer ShopTo.

Earlier this week, it was rumoured that 3DS will release in the UK on or around March 25 for £200-£230.
