    3d without glasses, that sounds nice!

    Maybe they just mean it's a 3D handheld in the same way the N64 did 3D and the SNES didn't. :p

    Seems odd for Nintendo to show their hand so early and with such a terse statement. Don't they only tend to do this if they're anticipating a competitor announcement that they wish to spoil?

    "3D Effects"? Intrigued.

    3D is a bit pointless on a tiny screen though.

    Maybe they were worried about the effect next week's iPad launch would have on their share price.

    Whether or not this is the new tech, it's great

    Yeah, I posted a thread on that before.

    Yup, seems to be head tracking.

    All of a sudden I envision a new 3D tech for everybody's tv. Just place a webcam on the top of your screen and equip your pc/console with proper head tracking software so that you track point of view changes in almost real-time. Here's your 3D tech right there....

    (I sort of remember a tech demo for the wii, from a long time ago?)

    3D without glasses?

    So it's a bit of see-through plastic then. Good job, Nintendo!

    I wonder what the point of 3D is on a handheld.

    Maybe they mean that the actual hardware is 3D. Like, it's a cube or something that you rotate.

    That effect is impressive but I can't imagine it having much use in most games.

    The 3DS had better be a completely new machine and not just yet another flavour of the same old shit. Some of the rumours leaking over the last few weeks had been moderately interesting, it'd be a shame if they all turned out to be horseshit.
