300$...

You've GOT to be kidding me. This is how much you pay for a ps3 nowadays.

Ah, the psp's launch price was also ~300, so whatever....

Even though the 3d is supposedly rather cheap and its effect can be achieved at home with a plastic sheet and a good printer

Anyways, was this posted before?

I hope they won't change Fox' face too much. I like how it doesn't resemble the command or brawl model

R3dFive. That video confirms that there is voice acting in Starfox64. Mainly because you can hear the voices, rather then gibberish!!!

and He sortof looks like Bolt :D

There was speculation that there would not be any voice acting, and this solidifies that there will be..

I never heard that, but why would a machine with similar power to a cube not have voice in a port of a n64 game?

"$300" is the Japanese Price. NCL announced a price of ¥25000. At current exchange rates, that comes out to $297.44 US, rounded, that's the $300.

NCL almost always prices significantly higher than NOA. I expect the US price to be closer to $250, somewhere between $249.99 and $279.99, barring any bundle deals.

Example: The DSi XL sells in Japan for ¥18000, or about $215 US, but NOA set the US price at $169.99.

The Street Fighter is likely a reference to the 3DS Virtual Console, which IGN neglected to mention in that article. That's how you'll get your old Game Boy games on 3DS.

On a side note, I do not believe the 3DS is the second coming of the Virtual Boy. What killed the VB was not 3D, but the god-awful form factor. I get neck cramps looking at the damn thing. 3DS' form factor is close to that of the DS, which was arguably one of the most successful products in gaming history.

Not only that, but the games were crap.

Before long it'll be down to the Wii's price or less, come some 6 months to a year or so.  But nevertheless. This. Is. Awesome news - the games I'll probably nab are Star Fox 64 and the Ocarina of Time HD Remakes. :D

I seriously doubt it. It's like the moon boots in assault.

What suprised me was the amount of filler from N64. Either way, best get saving those pennies.
