This Poll is running till Tuesday Aug. 31st 2010.

Tokyo Game Show is in the middle of Sept. and I figure we should know the price around then

199.95 definitely. It's going to be the sweet spot, especially if they continue selling DSi and DSiTooFreakingBig.

$199.99 seems about right to me (I would like it lower of coarse, but this seems about what Nintendo might charge).

i say $189 since it will still need to be less than the Wii. also predict DSi to drop to $129 and the ds lite will go away.

A $50 price drop for DSi when it is the best selling version of the best selling system? The next time they do price drops, I think it will be to $150 and DS Lite to $100.

That's what I'm guessing too. However, I think it should be $150 to get a stranglehold on the market. Though preferably it should be $100 since no handheld is worth more than that.

I see the DSLite getting discontinued when the 3DS drops.
As for price, I'm going with $189.99 to keep it just under the Wii.

I don't think $189 gets Nintendo any better PR or sales than $199, so I can't think of any reason they wouldn't charge the extra ten bucks.

This has to do with both Place Yer Bets threads

insiders have told MCV they are expecting Nintendo to maintain its promise to have the device launched globally by March 2011 – but with Europe getting 3DS around February 2011, with a price just under £200.

 £200

What is that? like $230? $250?

For the record, I chose $249.99 as soon as this poll went up.  Looks like a winner is me.

I'm sticking with $199 even though I know there is a possibility that it could be no more than $250.

It's hard to gauge since we don't fully know everything the 3DS offers as we don't know whats up with the stylus, the bottom screen, the port on back, the internals and online connections.

But I still think $199 is Nintendo limit on mass market pricing regardless if I'm willing to pay $250 for something more capable than what they'll likely release.

Keyword is that they EXPECT Nintendo to charge that much, they are not saying Nintendo will do it. They are basically guessing. Besides, Nintendo like to keep the same number for pricing (meaning they would likely charge $200 in the US and 20,000 yen in Japan).
