    General Nintendo 3DS Thread

    To Whom It May Concern:
    Re: Launch of New Portable Game Machine

    Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Minami-ward of Kyoto-city, President Satoru Iwata) will launch "Nintendo 3DS"(temp) during the fiscal year ending March 2011, on which games can be enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses.

    "Nintendo 3DS"(temp) is going to be the new portable game machine to succeed "Nintendo DS series", whose cumulative consolidated sales from Nintendo amounted to 125million units as of the end of December 2009, and will include backward compatibility so that the software for Nintendo DS series, including the ones for Nintendo DSi, can also be enjoyed.

    We are planning to announce additional details at E3 show, which is scheduled to be held from June 15, 2010 at Los Angeles in the U.S.
    Backwards compatibility = WIN. Gonna stock up on titles before the release of this one.

    So I wonder if this will end the DS for good but I bet DS will live longer because of the backward compatibility like in the GBA.

    aw crap...there goes my DSi XL purchase. unless it's as big as a DSi XL.

    and yet, this announcement seems ... weird. so unlike them to announce something like this without hardware pics, and why didn't Nikkei or some other Japanese publication "leak" the details like they always do?

    I don't believe it (not yet). The DSi didn't exactly take off as the DS did so they would have to do more than what's seen on the video. And 3D gaming is still probably premature at this stage and I don't really expect to see it with the DS's successor.
    Truth is relative, pick one that works.

    You had the hard news for breakfast, so how's about some less official, but still pretty robust, fodder for brunch? Asahi in Japan offers the first word on how the 3DS achieves its 3D-ness by suggesting that the new portable game machine with feature a parallax barrier LCD from Sharp. The tech has apparently already been deployed in a few cellphones over there and is described as "unsuitable" for large-screen TVs. This is corroborated by Nikkei, which suggests that the screens on the new device will be smaller than 4 inches diagonally, placing it closer to the DSi than the 4.2-inch DSi XL / LL. Other news from the latter source include so-called 3D control stick(s), though it's not entirely clear whether this'll be anything massively new or just a pair of analog nubs for us to push around. Either way, Nintendo is said to have secured patents for the new control methodology in Japan late last year. The Nikkei article also mentions improvements in WiFi transfers and battery life, as well as a new vibration function. Now that we've got all that out of the way, can someone please tell us if this thing has Tegra inside or not?
