Nintendo 3DS Hands On‬ With Interesting Details about the 3D Support

February 8th, 2011 · 5 Comments · Other S3D Tech


No, I haven’t been able to get my hands on the Nintendo 3DS portable console yet. This is an interesting find from the reader Rhialto, who send in the news about a hands-on video of the upcoming Nintendo 3DS console by a guy in Australia. In the video Blunty3000 gets to play with the built in software including the Mii maker, some Augmented reality gaming using an AR card, Face Raiders using the cameras and the motion sensors, and even popping a DS game into the 3DS, Pokemon to see how the backwards compatibility does. But the most interesting part in the video, in regards to 3D support, are the samples of photos taken with the 3DS’s 3D cameras (640×480 resolution) and the confirmation that the 3D images are being saved in the MPO format and that should ensure broader compatibility with other 3D-capable solutions. The image quality looks decent enough, but you should not expect too much from the built-in 3D camera solution in the 3DS anyway. The Nintendo 3DS consoles will be available in Europe on March 25th with a price of €249.99 (Euro) and on March 27th for $249.99 USD in North America, and in Japan the release date is a month earlier on February 26th with a price of ¥25,000 (Japanese Yens).
