?Nintendo just announced that its 3DS — the handheld gaming system that children under six should not be allowed to play with, and everyone older should only play for 30 minutes at a time — will be released in America on March 27th for $249.99. Nintendo’s plan is to have 30 games released between the 3DS’ release and E3, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

As you can tell, I personally will not be buying a 3DS. I’ve never been much of a handheld gamer, and when I am, my iPhone has more games infinitely cheaper. Also it won’t make children’s eyes explode. Who of you guys will be buying one of these thing? (Via Kotaku)
