EA has commented on the graphical capabilities of the 3DS.
Can't wait for the 3ds to come out!
is there a date for it?
Last I heard was march but I haven't been keeping up with the news lately.
No official date for US and EU, only Japan (Feb 26 I think). Apparently coming out in March for US and EU though like FlyWestbrook said, but again no specific date has been announced.
3DS probably going to be huge succeess again such as the DS, this time around its packing some real power :D I wonder how powerful PSP2 going to be if 3DS is this powerful.
the latest rumor about the psp2 was that the games would look like early ps3 titles. It's all hearsay though, I'm sure we'll find out at e3 this year. I'm getting both, the 3ds and the psp2, I can't wait to play the ocarina of time remake and the new resident evil game.
I can't wait for it either but this seems like a lot of hype. They reference lighting and reflections on the helmets are like next gen. Based off early screen shots Madden doesn't look better than an iphone game. In fact it doesn't even compare with Infinity Blade. I know Nintendo portables aren't known for graphics but I don't think next gen will be much different. Luckily the 3ds will have some Great games so I'm really looking forward to it.
The screens I saw of Madden were okay. Not a big fan of Madden, though! For some reason I prefer to watch sports rather than play sports games.
so far i like what i see, if it has a desent launch line up then only will i buy it on Launch Day , or else i,ll wait for a while & get it when it gets its first price drop..
The EA 3DS games look gawd awful. There is like this one, the Garden one, The Sims 3. Am I forgetting something.
That the 3ds isn't the same thing as ds?
EA have got to stop trying to kill of Nintendo the actual Graphics in Wii are basically a souped up Radeon X1600 the 360 gets compared to a X1800 and pubs like Ubisoft/Capcom/Square Enix/Activision/HVS/ect all have next gen Engines running on wii/3ds try Havok FX/Quantum3/MT Framework light/MT Framework mobile/Gamebryo lightspeed/BGAE2 Engine Ubisoft/ect and are making games look better and better EA have give up on Nintendo end of Gamecube games like Rogue squadron 3 ect had better graphics than every EA game including dead space Extraction EA have failed the wii and are looking to fail 3DS
wow a future handheld by nintendo will beat the wii in terms of processing power. Thats actually pretty cool sort of like having a portable xbob1.5 in your pocket. Warning what i will say next will offend some nintendo fanboys so if you do not wish to be offended by my opinion then skip the text below The 3DS seems like great handheld but i am going to wait until sony releases the PSP2 then decide between the 2. Because when it comes to games i always liked Sony more than Nintendo. I am not saying in anyway that Nintendo makes bad games (the games they make a great) but i prefer the type of games that Sony makes which are games designed for a more mature audiance.
Why did you even bother explain that? Just enjoy what you like, not it seems like you were purposely trying to "offend" others...even though there is nothing offensive about it.
but i had a lot of hate mail sent to me in the past for simply expressing my opinion. Some people find it offensive that instead of prefering their favorite console you prefer another. This is N4G and these sorts of things are normal here. Thank god they got rid of Omega cause he sent me a ton of hate mail for stating that i thought that move was better than Kinect. Also Skadoosh attacked me once cause i said i liked the visuals of uncharted 2 more than gears of war 2.
I know how N4G is, And even if you get allot of hate mail, you will get only more by stating these things right? You are basically asking for it...
Whats wrong with stating ones oppinion? Isnt that what the comment section is all about?
Nothing wrong. But expect consequences from bitter fanboys.
Xbob 1.5? Where can I get one?
I respect your opinion, but when it comes to handhelds, I will always be loyal to Nintendo. I've been with them since the Gameboy Pocket and have no plans to change that. Nintendo has never disappointed me with their handhelds, so I personally see no reason to switch. As far as games for a mature audience, you have a point. But the DS wasn't all casual itself. It had a plethora of RPG's that were way over the heads of casuals. But yeah, the PSP does have more 'mature' games.
not a chance it beats wii in power the wii has a powerful GPU thats actually a GPGPU and calculates all physics 250x faster than a cpu ie takes strain off the cpu the wii also has 1.9 billion pixel fillrate
Even though im not a big handheld gamer i own both th ds and the psp. Will probably pick this one up to finally get access to a 3d screen, albert a small one. Will probably depend on the price though. Highly doubt it will be much more powerful than the current psp, but it will shure have a better battery.
ur talking rubbish 3DS has a cpu abit more powerful than wii and a gpu no where near wii as wii GPU is a GPGPU way more powerful and 3DS has 1.6 billion pixel fillrate wii has 1.9,360 has 4 billion,ps3 4.2,psp has 520 million,iphone 480 million,cube 622 million,ect Wii has a gpu comparable to 360,3ds has gpu comparable to Gamecube but a cpu that makes up 4 it and also shaders so on the small screens with a 1.6 bill fillrate its more impressive techwise than all current home consoles due to power and less pixels to fill with all that power meaning 400x240 resolution and 1.6 billion to fill it is an insane fillrate
I was just going with what gameplay ive seen so far. Let the games do the talking, not the specs.
I cnt wait to buy this & get ZELDA OoT!
Cannot wait for this. I never got or beat OoT, so now is my chance. Does anyone know if Metal Gear Solid 3DS will be a launch title?
I think its TBA 2011, but i think we'll be getting a release date soon. My guess is Q2 of 2011. Srry thats all i got :/
what!? you need to download OOT off the virtual console asap. Arguably the greatest game ever made. I play through it at least once a year.
People need to stop saying next-gen, the phrase 'next-gen' was used back in 2005. We are in 2010 and it should no longer be referred to as 'next-gen' but should be referred to as 'current-gen'. When we were all anticipating the launch of the 360 it was then called 'next-gen', during it's launch we referred to it as the beginning of the 'new-gen', and once all three consoles were released we should have called it 'current-gen'. But fortunately a lot of us are still stuck in the past.
I am gonna wait for a 3DS. If you look at the past history of Nintendo handhelds, the first iteration ALWAYS has a serious issue that they then rectify. Game Boy --> Game Boy Color Game Boy Advance --> Game Boy Advance SP DS --> DS Lite DSi --> DSi XL And the new one is always out in a year or two and is well worth the wait. So following Nintendo's formula, 3DS --> 3DS+.
there wasn't anything wrong with the ds fat, it just had a horrible design, it looked like a fisher price toy. The game boy advance though, bleh, no back light, not rechargeable battery. I waited until the SP came out before I bought one.
but you don't know how long will you have to wait 3DS plus.. you can wait 1, 2 years..but it can be made after 3 or more years, are you gonna wait 4 so long? :) I personally don't have so much patience..I may buy it at launch or after time in six months, not later :) and Hideo Kojima said MGS 3DS will be in spring.. :)
Yaaaaawn! Screw Madden! Show me some Kid Icarus, Resi, F-Zero, or something new!!!!
