The Nintendo 3DS: 3-D Television's Trojan Horse?

Dick Ward writes : "And that's the first part of it, really. If the 3DS can give us a high quality 3-D picture without the need for glasses, they'll be perceived as being leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else. It's not like motion control, which was doable before the Wii; this is 3-D the way people want to see it."

i cant wait to see the psp 2s 3d screen because sony doesn't play around. i wonder which 3d screen will look better, 3ds, or psp 2? im sure the psp 2s screen will be better.

I haven't seen the psp 2 yet so I couldn't really argue with you about it. I haven't seen the 3ds either. Have you?

sinclaircrown2284d ago

Impossible to judge before either one has been shown. Although for fanboys, its easy to judge before hand.

hoops2284d ago

You don't even know if the PSP2 will have 3D.....let alone a better screen. Fanboys will be fanboys...

I saw a 3DTV at CES this year that didn't require glasses. They only showed an animated airplane on the screen, and it was cool seeing the wings pop out sometimes. However, I think on a large screen TV there's a long way to go before they will be produced.

The picture was hard on the eyes at certain angles. Really cool tech though and hopefully in a few years they can make it work well on a large scale.

I prefer this approach to 3D TV compared to using glasses because after all this time its just dawned on my mind. The lenses on the 3D glasses are almost acting as sun glasses, being so dark, so you buy a TV wanting the best whites and contrast and colour but your fading it out due to the glasses ? so whats the point ?

gonzodamus2284d ago

That's why you need the extra bright LED backlit sets! :p

fossilfern have you tryed 3d yet on the tv's ? is that what it really like i never really got that feeling from avatar in the pictures hope its not like that.

Dylantalon1 psp 2 has not even been anounced yet if your tihnking it will becuase nintendo annouced the 3ds your wrong sony do not work like that they will only annouce somthing when they want and there ready. the ds has stamped all the psp sony have put lot work to with psp2 this time round get some killer titles every year. and last dont focus to much graphics on handeled.

people are calling me a fanboy foer making a personal prediction about the psp 2 having a 3d screen. you guys could believe whatever you want because youre free to do so , but i can make an educated guess and say that psp 2 will have 3d implemented in some way. if i'm to make a guess about sony psp 2, i can rationally think that it will be better than nintendo's 3ds. when was the last time nintendo released a product that is the equivalent to sony's console or handheld on a technological basis? nintendos 3ds will be as powerful as a gamecube with way less features than a psp 2. i cant believe people would think that in a time like this, especially when sony is the only company (with consoles) pushing the 3d tech through tvs and console , they wouldnt implement 3d on a psp 2.

when you want to play and your mind needs a vacation , you dont need any communication, from the policestation, or exploration in some far off nation, all you need is a playstation.

ps.

"when was the last time nintendo released a product that is the equivalent to sony's console or handheld on a technological basis?"

Hmmm...Lets see...
The GameCube....The N64
Both those consoles were technically better then the PS2 and PS1.
Especially the Gamecube. The PS2 was the weakest system that generation. The PS1 lacked the same type of 3D rendering as the N64.
Try again.
Btw. When in the history of console gaming has a system "WON" based on power and tech?
Here is the answer so you don't bust a brain vessel:
NONE. Atari won over Intellivison and the Atari 2600 was weaker.
Colecovision was stronger than all of them and its life was cut short because of the console crash in 84'
The NES and Sega Master system were even.
The Sega Gensis system and SNES were practically even...
The NEO-GEO and 3D0 were the most powerful systems and lost...
The Turbo Graphix16 hade nice power and lost...
The Xbox1 had more power than the PS2 and Gamecube...PS2 won...
This generation?
On a technical aspect: The PS3 is the most powerful console and the Wii is kicking its ass and won this generation over the PS3 and Xbox360 despite being just a gamecube with motion controls.

3d has been around for years. Looking at you Sega

Sorry. Sony did not invent 3d for consoles. Moreover Nvidia has been doing FULL HD1080+ 60FPS 3D for years.
