This is quite a chunk of change for the new glasses free 3D handheld gamer, only a mere $50 less than it costs to get into a PS3 and more than the entry level Xbox 360. Around 30 games are expected to be released before E3 in June, with seven titles officially slated for launch day. Nintendo DSi games will be compatible with the 3DS as well so you can play your older titles as well.
