The Upcoming NINTENDO 3DS
Posted 02 August 2010 - 12:48 AM
Nintendo 3DS is an upcoming portable game console by Nintendo, which can produce "3D effects without the need for any special glasses", a process called autostereoscopy. Scheduled to launch in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011, the portable will succeed the Nintendo DS series of handhelds, which primarily shares the handheld console market with Sony's PSP (PlayStation Portable). The Nintendo 3DS will feature backward compatibility with Nintendo DS series software, including Nintendo DSi software.
The 3DS has two cameras on the outside of the device, capable of taking 3D photos and capturing 3D video, as well as a camera positioned above the top screen that faces the player, capable of taking 2D photos and capturing 2D video; all three cameras have a resolution of 640×480 pixels (0.3 Megapixel). The system also has 3D movie playback capability.
Okay, now the bad news for the pirate-games / ROM user. Nintendo 3DS features sophisticated anti-piracy technology which Nintendo believes is able to significantly curb video game piracy, which had increasingly depressed the handheld market with the proliferation of cheap flash memory and the rise in illegal file sharing.(wikipedia)
I really can't wait for March 31, 2011. Yeah, imagine playing Doki-doki Majo Shinpan, Sono Hanabira, or Love Plus in 3D. That feels awesome, right.
