    Actually I'd be happy if just one them could come up with a handheld that I actually found comfortable to use.

    So, now Digital Foundry is suggesting the parallax barrier method . They have posted this link (for the lazy one):

    Maybe I'll have to buy a new TV after all...


    edit: spelling

    Nintendo patented 3D in 1979. FACT.

    Not until Nintendo prove it's successful, no.

    Sony already have patents for 3D screens. Just another chance for Nintendo to try and make out like everyone is ripping them off again.

    I Suppose well have to wait until E3. But with Sony trying to push their HD tvs and are the first to do implement it on console market with the PS3, I will be very surprised if they leave it out of their next handheld

    Didn't you hear? Nintendo invented 3D 100 years ago when they were still a card company. Then everyone else came and ripped them off. They're not going to sue James Cameron, but they will sit in the corner crying while saying "but we innovatedddd, you're all mean!"

    A patent doesn't prove that Sony have been working on a 3D handheld.

    So, three competing scenarios are slowly shaping up:

    1) webcam-based head tracking for viewpoint detection.

    Basic mechanism: provides illusion of 3D through viewpoint changes
    Pros: cheap (no need to change tv, all hardware basically there)
    Cons: single person, may need you to wear a light bulb (or a wiimote) on your head

    2) stereo images entirely generated within the monitor (e.g. parallax barrier)

    Basic mechanism: illusion of 3D through stereoscopy
    Pros: no need to wear glasses, or bulbs over your head
    Cons: single person in constrained positions, expensive monitor, forced stereoscopy may be bad for your health (tiring, nausea, etc.)

    3) stereo images generated with the aid of shutter glasses

    Basic mechanism: illusion of 3D through stereoscopy (like before)
    Pros: less expensive monitor upgrade (60Hz for stereo imaging at 30Hz, 120Hz for stereo imaging at 60Hz), multiple users, less constrained positions
    Cons: need to wear glasses, same physiological (negative) effects

    In summary: 1 and 2) probably best for handelds, 3) better for a home with multiple people

    They've been working on 3D technology for years.

    Sony talk about bringing 3D to PS3 - "boo, 3D is shit, what a waste of money"
    Nintendo brings 3D to the DS - "wow, Nintendo are so amazing and innovative /wankwank"

    All that tech will never be in a handheld.

    Picture a handeld gamecube with two touchscreens and I think you'll be not far wrong.

    FCUTA!

    I personally greeted the news with more than just two wanks.

    3D with glasses is one thing.

    3D without glasses is another thing.

    I'm interested to see the developments in both fields.

    Stop sitting on the fence, FFS, this eurogamer.

    Fucks sake, EG really does crush the excitement for anything. I was well hyped for this when I read the news earlier, now I've been on EG for 10 minutes and I really don't give a shit about it any more.
