Nintendo has confirmed that their newest handheld system will be playable at E3.
Same for me :) Look forward to seeing it at E3 :D
Backwards compatibility FTW!
Just joking, Day 1 for me too. :) I haven't upgraded my DS since my launch silver "phat" in 2004. I've been really patient. :) E3 will be awesome for Ninty. Thank you Nintendo for announcing this before the DSi XL launches next week. They probably didn't want to upset anyone come E3. :)
If this Fails as badly technology and software library wise as the DS did I'll take a wait and see approach on it and see what the competition brings. I've got a phat day one silver DS that's an awesome dust collector; while I use my day one PSP daily for music, movies, comic books, and more hardcore gamer oriented games than what the DS has to offer. Sony's second generation PSP is sure to pwn this thing hardware-wise.
I still think this is gonna be stupidly expensive considering how expensive the technology for 3D is right now without the glasses anyways. LCD tvs without this tech are nearly double in price! Cannot see this costing less than a PS3! Also a shot at MS really who said 3D ain't the future of gaming really ain't it?
Not buying it. You Sony fans fail me. How can you support Nintendo?
Maybe it's because they want to enjoy games that don't come from sony instead of being blind fanboys.
I got to say I'm highly interested. I'm one of the few people who never brought a DS (or PsP for that matter) because I just wasn't interested in the same ole handheld games. If the new 3D machine Nintendo puts out is a bit powerful (like a underpowered Gamecube) I'll probably be all over it. Either way they have my full attention for once in the last 6 years or so.
If you want a rough idea of what the graphics will be like go watch a 480p video of resident evil 4 gamecube version.
Certainly day 1 for me as well, but i hope it's not the final shape in the picture.
If you're talking about the image in this submission, don't worry. That's just a random mock up design.
get used to seeing lots of mock up designs until we find out officially what it will look like at e3
I'm glad that E3 sent me my Press Badge than.
Makes me wish I was going to E3 now. Although there's nothing like opening up a box and holding a new system in your hands for the first time.
So true, I remember opening my n64 on release day playing sm64, nothing has compared to that moment in gaming for me
LOL DAMN! I guess they've been working on this for a while. 2011 release no doubt. DAY1
I might wait for the revision (it's likely going to happen), well the launch DS was flawed but DSlite made it much better.
Wait, is that an actual picture of the device?
Nope. No pictures yet. There was just not a better picture for this submission.
Rawr. I would love to go to E3....
No way in hell Sony will watch with its thumb up its ass
QTF. Sorry but anyone who tries to deny Franky's comment is wrong. PSP is in it's 6 year now too and needs an update. Sony WILL counter this, especially if the DS is 3D, no doubt what with Sony pushing 3D on PS3, they will do so with a 3D PSP as well. Just you watch
If PSP2 gets 3D it will be quite a treat: consider the multimedia capabilities of the PSP and you have a pretty versatile portable 3D player. 3D on portables is quite an interesting thought. Nintendo is really smart with their handhelds and they know the market like the back of their hands. 3D is the perfect update for a DS2 but I wonder how it will look like. No doubt that Sony needs to upgrade the PSP. If it includes 3D then that will be great, but I hope they price the PSP2 reasonably. When you look at Sony's ambition they always seem to make the superior product but it comes at the cost of high prices. Nintendo on the other hand may be inferior in capabilities but they really know how to properly market an affordable and appealing product. First with touch screen and now with 3D. I wonder if PSP2 will have touch screen... I wonder if it will be a phone too.
My God I didn't even realize that the PSP has been out since early 2005 (2004 in Japan). That's a long time indeed!
dunno sony pretty much flopped the "go " last year so unless they have some changes to show there won't be much from them regarding a new handleld
Anything Sony 'counters' Nintendo with probably won't be as successful as what Nintendo achieves.
You seem to forget that Nintendo was in 3rd place last gen and about to go under?
That's not the case now though is it Frank? And besides, has Sony or any other company ever beaten Nintendo in the handheld market? EDIT:Also can you provide sources to back up your claim that Nintendo were close to being bankrupt? Just interested, never seen that before.
nintendo ? bankrupt ?( go under ?) That never happenned.. Last gen they were selling GBAs and DS like hot cakes and pokemon games left and right while selling the only home console that producced profits from the start .. ( game cube ) Nnntendo always had a lot of money ...
very kool indeed. I still have the original DS and have been waiting for a true successor for quite sometime. Would be awesome if they came out with a new metroid prime game in 3D!!!!!
Day1 if its truly 3d.
Can't wait to go to E3 this year!
I wont be getting it till i see the games and the price. Looks promising though.
I'm hoping for a $199.99 price tag. :) Does anyone else think it will have GB's of memory available for a hard drive?
Well they say its cart based so its hard to say. Im sure it will have some type of memory built in but no idea how much or what type.
gonna have to see how this goes, can't wait to see how it looks.
needs to counter now...its the adult handheld....and that is kinda the problem
That would be someting if a new psp was announced wouldnt it. The two facing off. It would be interesting especially with their different focuses
I am so glad I didn't get DSi. A refresh often seems to mean something better is coming round the corner. Except perhaps the PS3 slim and maybe Xbox 360(Natal).
given their history, I'll wait and see if they come out with another version of 3DS, and they usually make improvements after the initial run of the hardware.
That will take around 2 years after launch, if we go by the U.S. launch in Nov. 2004 and DS lite U.S. launch June 2006. I think the U.S./Japan will see the 3DS in November 2010 and Europe March 2011. :)
Nintendo have been making these since early 2009 just to stock pile in order to keep up with demand when the system launches. This system might outsell MW2... on it's own. Seriously I wouldn't be surprised if it has 2 million sales from Japan alone in week 1 with more in America. Nintendo isn't printing money so much as owning it all... seriously a free bar of gold would stay on the shelf longer than this. You think I'm hyping it, here's a 3DS advert. Play your gamers in higher quality Play with you children Easier to see There, you have EVERYONE interested. Make it $200 and you have a winner, this is the bginning of the next generation of gaming aswell. I'm not hyping it's just the NintenDO factor. They sell.
I remember the DS sold like 500,000 the first week in America (2004) and that's when no one really knew what the thing was...lol So imagine....I guess around 2 million week one in America if they have enough, the right software, and the right price. :)
If it had brain training with SD puzzle, a Mario kart. I wouldn't be surprized if this could handle wiiware games/virtual games. Re-realese some of those since then you have like +100 games. Here's the best marketing tactic. Send out developing softwere for free to the 100 top developers on wii ware tell them to make their games 3DS compatible by whenever. then in the 3DS box give a $30 wiiware card and with a note saying, we're so proud of our quality here's $30 to spend how you want. That has two postivies, you have now gotten a bunch of people to try free stuff. You've saved yourself money on having to bundle a game, but a game would be nice.
altough i think this going to be a fay 1 pick up for me, why is nintendo milking the DS, the DSi came out not to long ago, and not the DSiXL is upon us now we got the 3DS to think about, nintendo should have at least waited until E3 to unveil this
The add some horsepower. Otherwise nah.
I don't want horses with it I'll be playing it on the train, where will I put them?
Actually rather shocked Nintendo is jumping on the 3-D bandwagon. I'm in!
Can someone please tell me how the heck to sign up to NeoGaf because I can't flippin use my E-Mail address, SO WHAT THE HECK SHALL I USE THEN!?!?! If you can't use your E-Mail address then I fail to see how 100's of people have signed up to the dam site.
First if you read what's written you'll found what you should do. Second , is it the place to complain ? really ? Let me give you a hint ... don't use free providers email addresses nor typical email addresses .. There are plenty of email addresses that don't fit in these criteria ... This is sorta a noob filter and you seem to have failed it ..
I'm sort of excited about it, I'm not much into the big 3D movement, but I'm slowly warming up to it, though I think people are going overboard with the whole 3D thing, avatar was a hit and BAM suddenly it seems like EVERYTHING has to be 3D. I'm holding my breath till E3 though, I just hope it wont be like the 3D app I saw for the iPhone earlier which seemed to use a tilt sensor
