Of the 47 upcoming games for the 3DS listed by the gaming chain GameStop, only one of them costs $50. The new Mario Kart will cost $40. So will the next Sonic.
The next Resident Evil, February's Resident Evil: Revelations, won't be had for $40. It'll cost $50. The $10 price boost for this game isn't due to any bundling of the Circle Pad, the second-analog-"stick" add-on for the 3DS. It's not required for Revelations, even though it's been demoed with it. A spokesperson for the game told Kotaku Capcom doesn't even plan to bundle it with the game.
