Nintendo sets date for DS handheld console launch in Europe Gaming Company Nintendo has said it will launch its new DS handheld console in Europe on March 11th which is a Friday. It will be prices at about 149 (100 in the UK) and will debut alongside 15 games which will cost about 20 or 30 each. The US price was $150, the difference being largely covered by import duties and sales tax, included in the European prices but not the headline US figure. Nintendo said it is aiming this console mainly at women. It seems that male gamers would probably go for the Sony PSP.
The first game released will be Super Mario 64 DS, WarioWare Touched!, Project Rub, Mr DRILLER: Drill Spirits, Spiderman 2, Rayman DS, The Urbz, Pokemon Dash, Sprung, Asphalt Urban GT, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, Zoo Keeper, Ping Pals, Robots and Polarium and the console has a demo version of Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt bundled with it. 650,000 units have been allocated for European sales, and Nintendo also plans on spending 35m promoting the product.
