Looks like
Nintendo has a winner.
BakedGoods  +   1992d ago
It's amazing how consistent they are.

i feel sorry for myself....i dont have 20/20 vision...fell off a 2 story house and could never see well through that eye...everything i see is through my right eye...the left, everything is blurry...i can make out shapes and some detail but thats i wish i could enjoy 3D
despair  +   1992d ago
Nintendo consistent? This is the first nintendo conference I liked and pretty much all nintendo news since N64 days.

Funny I was looking for people playing the 3DS and i get their faces not the actual games lol.

has anyone seen the 3d effect on this nintendo 3ds. i just havent encountered a single video showing it! can someone post a link or something.
zireno  +   1992d ago
3d doesn't work like that, you won't be able to see the effect through your monitor.
peowpeow  +   1992d ago
Not properly anyway. I could see it in one of the videos posted by a commenter on n4g. I must say I was not a believer :) now completely sold!
eagle21  +   1992d ago
Nintendo was Nintendo this E3, and I loved it. :)

Sources say that the screens used for the 3DS can only really work in small form factors and woundn't really work on large TV's. I wonder if this technology could one day be adapted for 20-26" monitors. THAT Would be something.
Cajun Chicken  +   1992d ago
I guess so. But you'd have to sit straight in front of it and not at that much of an angle. I guess that isn't much problem with a TV/monitor anyway.
Alcon Caper  +   1992d ago

Post sources please.
Alcon Caper  +   1992d ago
no, pandamobile, i didn't say click disagree...i said post sources...
zireno  +   1992d ago
yes, as of now it only works with small screens, but I read that the technology for bigger screens like TVs and monitors is on it's way, but don't hold your breath on it because it'll probably come in about 5-7 years.

i feel sorry for the psp, once again beated by an "inferior" hardware
Homicide  +   1992d ago
Have you seen the graphics for some of the 3DS games? They're insane; better than PSP's.
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1992d ago
PSP is last gen hardware compared to the 3DS, what are you talking about?

its been more than 5 years since its launch. so of course it has been obsolete by newer tech...
Sunny_D  +   1992d ago
If you researched rather than troll, you would know the 3DS is actually more powerful than the PSP.

despair  +   1992d ago
really because nintendo hasn't released any cpu etc. specs on the 3ds so until then the only way to gauge is by the game graphics and quality and so far its mostly rendered video scenes for the graphics heavy should do some research also before trolling.

peowpeow  +   1992d ago
Maybe it being 3D has something to do with it? I read comments about needing (approx.) double the processing power for 3D?
gta2800  +   1992d ago
As Pope said. PSP is old tech compared to 3DS. The handheld isn't even out yet. That's like trying to compare a 2004 Mustang to a 2011 Mustang. So of course it's gonna be better...or at least it should be. It would be ridiculous IMO, if at this point Nintendo made 3DS with older tech. But I'm pretty sure when Sony reveals the PSP2 it will surpass the DS in terms of hardware and leave it in the same place it left the DS when they were both out.

And why is it inferior? wasn't the 3DS just revealed today for the first time? I don't recall anyone ever calling the 3DS, something that didn't officially exist till today, inferior.

"when Sony reveals the PSP2 it will surpass the DS in terms of hardware and leave it in the same place it left the DS when they were both out."

First place? lol Great point you made there
bjornbear  +   1992d ago
you were beated
by your own grammar fail =/

still,3DS is not inferior hardware since its new hardware, and supposedly superior

+ PSP was beaten by the DS so it WAS beaten by inferior hardware

but why do you care? you are 360 owner. Oh i get it....sorry for your loss =(
Sigh  +   1992d ago
cool video. Wished I was there to try the 3DS and the new Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Gitaroo  +   1992d ago
Sony hyped 3D gaming, and nintendo benefits all of it. Kind of sad.
fatstarr  +   1992d ago
o.o if anything Avatar should be credited for this full 3dwave
if Sony wanted to be successful they would sell 3d for cheap.

Nintendo took the fire for touch gaming and motion gaming. it just proves to me that you have to take risks and back something 100% no matter what. just like Nintendo.
MegaPowa  +   1992d ago
but the 3ds was in developement way before avatar :0
Gitaroo  +   1992d ago
they cant really sell it for cheap, like you can't compare to 3DS to a 50 inch 3D TV. They are 2 totally different scale of hardware. 3DS screen is probably one of the prototype from one of the electronic manufacturers lab that actually functional enough and cheap enough to make in small size. The game output at 400X240 (800x240 split in 2 for 3D). Thats a lower resolution than the PSP screen. Which they can probably get around with any smaller artifacts or side effect of the screen. PS3 wise Sony can only go with what is available in the market currently (3D TV + glasses) and use the PS3 to help spreading the tech to get ppl to adopt it.
fatstarr  +   1992d ago
I am comparing it to the glasses for 3d tvs. these expensive things

I still don't have a strong feeling for motion gaming from Sony. it feels like they aren't 100% behind it. Microsoft went all out for its motion system. but Sony doesn't give that vibe. They should be looking for the next best thing like what Nintendo does.

to have a full expirence from sony I need a 3D1080p hd tv $____
a Ps3 $____ Move controller games and nunchuck $____ + the glasses $____ .

they need to find the next new thing currently it looks like Nintendo apple and google are the market leaders in changing the way we do things and changing the rules.
digitaledge  +   1992d ago
Nintendo have been playing with 3D for years - even before the Virtual Boy. Miyamoto and Iwata collaborated on a game back in the NES days! The GC was also capable of 3D output too, but it was never used.
DelbertGrady  +   1992d ago
Nintendo: "NO GLASSES!"

Sony: "Now put on your glasses again..."
HighDefinition  +   1992d ago
Man, on a small screen like that the PS3 could create an organism.
DigitalAnalog  +   1992d ago
Looks like the 3DS technology is an advanced version of this.
MegaPowa  +   1992d ago
That just uses face tracking and plus if that was 3ds tech the screen would have to be different and its not.
BYE  +   1992d ago
Nintendo is smart for not putting a price tag on it yet.

They're probably still evaluating it, trying to build up hype and demand first and then go with the highest price possible.
Gitaroo  +   1992d ago
sounds about right, like MS with kinect. These days, seems like whoever made the first move = screwed. Look at 3DS, add widescreen, analog stick and home button too for probably some kind of dashboard or xmb user interface to quit game. That means Ken Kutaragi actually design the PSP a bit ahead of its time. Not saying that those are original features, but they are some of the more unique PSP features.
Cheeseknight28  +   1992d ago
I'm betting $200, or $249. Will pay either, might pay higher.

Ocarina of Time, Paper Mario, Metal Gear 3, Layton, and Star Fox? AMAZING!!
R2D2  +   1992d ago
It only does trend setters for the other guys to follow.
HighDefinition  +   1992d ago
Like the PS3 says "It Only Does EVERYTHING"
mittwaffen  +   1992d ago
I see what you did there...
Seferoth75  +   1992d ago
If you wear glasses
Reno17  +   1992d ago
My favorite's the one where the dude doesn't even look up!
mittwaffen  +   1992d ago
No glasses 3D tech out of the door, HELLO NO GLASSES.
Sooner than expected - good to see! Now implement this on TV's.

MegaPowa  +   1992d ago
they can't
This only works if your close to the screen like when your playing a handheld
bjornbear  +   1992d ago
its a matter of time
before this gets applied to big screen TV's....

this 3D glasses thing will pass

the 3D thing though, is here to stay =3
littletad  +   1992d ago
Did an amazing job this year. Not impressive, or awesome, but amazing. By the looks of it, this is the first year I'll by buying more Nintendo games than 360 or ps3 combined. That's really something. What was great about their announcements, was that the games were announced for fall yet many of them weren't even in the radar yet.
HurstDarkStar  +   1992d ago
I really gotta get this thing
they will own if they bring this out before chrismas
Sitdown  +   1992d ago
So confused...
Nintendo holds off on hd and dvd player for their home consoles because they say they are not needed...but then they go and put 3d on their handheld. Is the handheld Nintendo's primary hardware...and the home console secondary?
digitaledge  +   1992d ago
Glasses free 3D is only feasible on handheld at the moment. Nintendo's aim is to make their stuff affordable, so that more people buy it. They've in interested in 3D for 20 years, and been trying things out with it regularly, but the sticking point for them introducing it on a home console is cost to the consumer - expensive TV AND expensive glasses would put the majority of thie user base off purchasing. But on a handheld? That's a different story.
clarkdef  +   1992d ago
Wait till you get the thing in your hands before you judge.
Eclipticus  +   1992d ago
Just Kidding, but seriously, they can figure out how to do 3d sans glasses for a handheld. but not a television set. Which one is the bigger market anyways?

Sony? Samsung? whats up!?
synce  +   1992d ago
Hmm, reactions to a Nintendo product... on Nintendo's site... Nope, no favorable editing there. lol I'm not impressed by 3D. That shit is 90's.
