Nintendo 3DS (3D handheld w/o glasses) -- will be shown at e3, out by march 2011

http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2010/100323e.pdf

-Backwards compatible with DS, DSi
-3D viewing won't require glasses, but i think we can assume it'll be relatively sensitive to head position relative to screen

how it is assumed the 3D screen will work

I make it rain on them hoes.
 
I am pretty excited about this as I love my DS. I imagine that only the top screen with be 3D if they keep the current form factor. I saw a ton of non glasses 3D screens at GDC so I am sure Nintendo can pull this off.

I think Samsung is the only maker who makes a 4" 3D display that does not need glasses. I also hope Tegra2 is going to power this.

I will always buy Nintendo handhelds. Whenever I start to wonder why a game will come out that will remind me how much fun they can be.

before they go 3d they need to up the damn specs. The DS wasn't super powered when it came out, now its just silly. I am all about innovation, and the whole dual screen/touch screen was definitely innovated, but dammit. Lets make the games look better before we try this 3d shit.

give me widescreen, and better than psp graphics and large storage space over 3d

i also still remember nintendo's last attempt at 3D, spent way too much money for that POS Virtua Boy

As someone who bought the original DS, DSLite, and DSi, I'm starting to grow weary of new Nintendo hardware every 4 months. I completely understand why they do it, but my budget simply cannot keep up.

Virtua Boy was fun even if it was a POS

The thing is, there is no indication that this is even a new handheld. People are going ape shit all over the web but for all we know it could be a revision of the DS that supports 3D. This will probably sell great, but I'm very skeptical of Nintendo, they always take the cheapest route possible to hardware upgrades.

I love my DS and I have high expectations but I'm going to set the bar low and expect this is just another DS with 3D added. Hense 3DS.

there's talk about tegra 2 powering the 3DS, so it would have on par or better graphics than the PSP i think? not sure how the tegra 2 preforms, but I'm sure it's pretty well.
