Within 3 years over 50 million people will have a 3DS.

@DarkCharizard_ - The way 3DS is selling a seriously doubt it.

Why has DarkCharizard still got 3 bubbles. He's been trolling in just about every positive Sony article since E3.

Dark Charizard, I can assure you I'm no PS3 fanboy lol I'm a huge Nintendo fan. Just as much I am a fan of Sony. In fact seeing as you spend more time talking down other companies on here rather than playing games, I probably own more Nintendo games than you too.

Vita will be a success. So will 3DS. I know you feel threatened by the fact that the Vita is at a competitive price point, all the while boasting tech a generation ahead of the 3DS, but your damage control is becoming beyond tiresome. Can everyone band together and please reduce this guys bubbles. How he has more than me, I just don't know.

People used to say Nintendo owned the console space. Yet Sony demolished them two generations in a row despite being the new kid on the block so to speak. Please think about that for a second.

And no, the killer titles start this week. Ocarina of Time 3D comes out on friday. In fact I should have my copy on thursday. Sucks to be you I guess.

3D growth has been nothing, but slow. If the 3DS sold well, I would re-consider it, but everything 3D has sold poorly sans the few early 3D movies released in the theater.

I'm not entirely sure if it was a price issue to begin with, which I initially thought.

I guess once we essentially get 3D for free with the TV instead of a premium price tag, then maybe... but those glasses really aren't comfortable and long periods of use makes me nauseous.

MerkinMax2350d ago

I'm in such pickle right now. I have 1,500 for my new gaming pc which I want to build for BF3. Then again, 3D looks cool too. What to do my friends, what to do...

DarkCharizard_2350d ago (Edited 2350d ago )

Thanks for the extra bubbles guys! :* :* :D

Also, by mid 2012 i'll have the following games for my 3DS -

1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
2. Kid Icarus Uprising
3. Super Mario 3D
4. Mario Kart 3D
5. Star Fox 64 3D
6. Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
7. Resident Evil Revalations
8. Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
9. Dead or Alive: Dimensions
10.Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy
11.Super Street Fighter IV 3D
12.Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle
13.Luigi's Mansion 2
14.Kingdom Hearts 3D
15.Paper Mario 3DS
16.Animal Crossing 3DS

I only have two of those now because the launch lineup sucked, but I'm sure my investment will pay off! NGP can't compare. Probably few years down the line it will have some respectable titles but not just yet.

Just click on his profile and ignore him like many others did. Believe me it is not worth the bother.

so no, count me out until these problems are fixed.

MysticStrummer2350d ago

No Max, you're thinking of the 720.

ksense2350d ago (Edited 2350d ago )

I am really looking at buying a 3dtv just for uncharted 3. everyone that has seen that game in 3d has nothing but good things to say about it.

The size sucks but I am sure they will have bigger size 3d tvs with the same capabilities like split screen gaming at a higher price. they probably just wanted to show the cheapest model at e3 to get people excited.

Active Reload2350d ago

Yeah, I'm intersted in a 3DTV also, but I'm kind of iffy on this particular one. 24 inches is somewhat small, but that technology it has sounds awesome even though it's not 3D itself.

Klaykid1232350d ago

I use a 24 inch 1080p monitor for my PC and PS3. It has HDMI outputs and VGI stuff for my PC.

I love it! Perfect size for in my bedroom to play on a chair on laying on bed.

It was 179.99 when I got it in November.

This 3D monitor looks mighty tempting for my room.. great bundle, but I doubt I'll be able to get it. If it does come with PC input, i'm sold. Luckily, the viewsonic came with multiple HDMI/PCI cords.

gamingdroid2350d ago (Edited 2350d ago )

I just bought two 21.5" 1080p LCD Monitor for $70 each:

For $30, I could get an LED.

Now there is also 21.5" IPS panels (considered the best in color reproduction and I can vouch for that) with multi-touch for $240:

Granted the first option isn't of the same quality as the Sony TV, but is the 3D feature worth giving up on a 32-40" for less cost or even one of the option above for significantly less?

Nes_Daze2350d ago

Very smart from Sony to support 3D as they have been doing.

Ducky2350d ago

Makes sense for them to say that as they've invested a lot in 3D tech on their TVs.

Although affordability is an issue, they'll also need to solve glasses as well as the headache issues that 3D tends to bring.
Until those issues are fixed, it'll remain a gimmick.

KINGLOVER3000002350d ago

I thought 3d will be bad at first. But i went to best buy and it is pretty cool.
