3DS games priced at $40 - GameStop

Software lists suggest considerably cheaper game prices for US

If retailer pricing so far proves to be accurate, 3DS games will set US gamers back between $40 and $50.

US retailer GameStop has been issuing a list of software with prices to gamers who've jumped in early with pre-orders, setting most games at $39.99.


Only two games on the list - Dead or Alive Dimensions, Samurai Warriors Chronicles - are set at a pricier $49.99.

It also dates titles more specifically than Nintendo's announced 'launch window' stipulated during its 3DS event last week, setting key first party titles such as Mario Kart 3DS, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Kid Icarus: Uprising and others for June 2.

It would be odd that all those huge games would be out on the same day, but if true June 2 will be this year's Christmas Day.
