    not sure is it region locked, and plus GB punters get shafted

    no surprise there eh?

    quote from the press conference:

    "Wouldn't it be great to have a realistic 3D picture of your child, and play it back on the same device for years?"

    I get it that before we can have interfaces like those seen on Star Trek etc we have to go through an evolutionary process but really think there grasping at straws with this, how about just look at your child?!

    Region locking takes the p*** and encourages piracy. It's a blatant rip-off that we'll pay 1:1 when our currency is 1:1.5, fair enough we have other costs etc, but even then it wont be a justification on the hardware and software prices.

    250.00 USD = 156.475 GBP
    add 20% VAT and other fees then it's worth around £180, but we wont see it at that even though the device is the same!

    yeah think it is region locked and just been confirmed at $250

    Price hasnt been confirmed at European confrence yet.

    Wasn't PSP released here at £190?
    £250 sounds steep, expensive kids birthday present.

    yeah no european price confirmed, just USA Price confirmed

    still I can see it selling at £229 or £249.99 with game, I think Im gonna wait till
    N3DSi or N3DSi XL comes out and buy the N3DS for £150

    deffo want one-but if this price is correct I will just get an american one-brother is in america on business at least twice a month-if its region locked will just get the games from there as well.

    No R.R.P for Europe, it's up to the retailer to price it.

    which means they will all just "fix" the price between them then?

    £229 at HMV

    It could be done

    lol, pretty sure that would take you over the weight limit. tbh the 360 power brick would!! And I'm sure it still sounds like a jet taking off, wouldn't want to be sitting next to them.....

    Is this gonna be another hardware addon from nintendo, that they wont actually make many games for?

    What am I waiting for?

    Come to think of it, some planes have wi-fi, so with PS3 CFW and a PSP you could play PS3 games through your PSP via remote play..
