Sony to Nintendo: 3D a 'bit of a stretch'

Nintendo may be hip to sell 3D handhelds, but Sony's having none of it.

"Koller calls Nintendo's unexpected 3D gamble "an interesting move," but wonders if they've really got their demographics straight.

"8 and 9 year-olds playing 3D is a little bit of a stretch given where some of our research is right now," he said."

They had no problem getting grownups to play the Wii so I don't doubt they will get 8 and 9 year-olds to play 3D games. Although I don't think the 3DS will be aimed at kids only. Koller's just being condescending as usual. It's like they didn't learn anything from when they called the Wii a 'novelty item' and 'impulse buy' back in 2006. Wake up, you are not in first place anymore.

I am all for 3d, as long as there are no glasses involved with it.
I am looking more forward to the 3ds then the DS back then.

damn ive never seen one failing company be so jealous of the success of another, and you have to know copystation will be behind Nintendo with the same thing a year later just like always.

You and sony are dumbasses as usual, because 8-9 year old's buy and play pokemon millions of times over....get a damn clue.
