In an exclusive interview with IncGamers, analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan was quoted as saying, “I expect the device to be available only on eBay for its first couple of months. I think that we Westerners won’t have an opportunity to buy before Christmas, so think that sales by Christmas will be limited to a few million in Japan.”

He also added, “I see it having huge success as an upgrade device, with sales likely limited only by supply and price. My best guess is that they will price it around $250/£199/€250, so this may limit demand somewhat, and I doubt that Nintendo will manufacture more than 10 – 15 million the first full year.”


This seems to support the rumors going around about the time of release and pricing of the Nintendo 3DS.
