    I heard about this from Serebii.
    Someone said that it'll probably use this kind of 3D: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5QSclrI ... r_embedded
    I doubt that's true, but who knows.
    Also, here's the Kotaku article on it: http://kotaku.com/5493233/rumor-ds-succ ... cube-power
    The picture there is not really the 3DS, it's just a modified DSi XL.

    I'm not that excited. I personally don't think they'll improve the hardware that much over a DS, so what you'll end up with is slightly improved DS graphics in 3D. While that doesn't sound bad, there's a reason why Avatar in 3D was cool. It wasn't because it was in 3D, it was because the graphics were fuckcool to begin with, and 3D only improved that. I'm not really interested in seeing jaggy pixel men popping out of the screen to be honest. Now, I guess since they haven't announced anything there's the possibility that they've totally reworked all the components or something, but the announcement seems tame enough that they don't want to get people too excited.

    That does look pretty awesome. Say what you want about Nintendo and say what you want about their sucky games but gimmick-wise they make some cool stuff.

    Actually that kind of "3D" would be doable with an accelerometer, like the ipod/iphone. I imagine it'd be very cpu intensive for the little thing though.

    Does anyone else not really give a shit about 3D? Cause I sure as hell don't.

    The way this works is you press the Ds to your face, one screen for each eye.

    ugh this will be a fail that's for sure. i mean seriously, first off, its a DS, second who gives a shit about 3-D gaming? not exactly the next step to "realistic gaming" in my opinion.
