The Nintendo DS will ship on 29 November and carry a $200 price-tag.

So claims EBGames' website, although its provides a caveat: "The ship date and retail price have not been confirmed and therefore are subject to change.

"If the retail price is decreased you will receive the lower price."

EBGames' Ts&Cs note that if the price ends up higher than $200, the company will honour the lower, pre-order price, which suggests that the figure should be viewed as a ceiling rather than an absolute price-point.

Indeed, a variety of analysts have speculated that the DS - still only a codename; the handheld may well be branded differently when it ships - will retail in the US for around $150.

As for the release date, EBGames' listing of future software releases for the platform contains 16 titles all with a 3 January 2005 launch date and priced at $50. ®
