3DS price and release date coming in September

Engadget is reporting that Nintendo has announced that they are going to be making an announcement sometime in September. What does this mean? The short and long of it is that a Nintendo representative told Bloomberg Japan the retail price and release date of the Nintendo 3DS would be revealed on September 29th.

What does this mean?
Not much, but we can always speculate: For instance, the DSi was announced in February of 2009 that it would be releasing in April of the same year – about a two month difference.  At best, we can hope for the same schedule, meaning an early December street date, or perhaps black Friday. At worst? We could be waiting until March 2011, the end of the fiscal year.
