Craig Grannell on the price points for new games on Nintendo’s forthcoming 3DS:

Even better, the games are expected to sell between 4800 yen ($57/£38) and 6090 yen ($73/£50). Even with some serious discounting (and Japanese games often being more expensive than in the US and Europe), these prices are obliterated by the App Store, which usually ranges from $1 (59p) to $9.99 (£5.99) per item.

That is a huge price disparity, though I wonder how many kids these days see the iPod touch and DS as direct competitors.
