    Default 3DS

    Anyone else excited about Nintendo's new portable system?



    Here's the list of the launch titles:

    • Pilotwings Resort
    • Nintendogs + Cats
    • Steeldiver
    • Dead or Alive
    • Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
    • Madden NFL
    • Super Street Fighter IV 3D
    • Asphalt 3D
    • Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D
    • Ridge Racer 3D
    • Resident Evil: The Mercenaries
    • LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars


    I already pre-ordered mine even though I'm not really interested in any of the launch titles. Pokemon Black/White for the DS comes out around the same time. I'll probably just buy that and wait until the more interesting games come out later (like the Assassins Creed game. oh or Pet Zombies in 3D!)

    I will have to check out the 3d control thing. I don't get how you can adjust the level of 3D. Looks cool though. I would buy it if they made a 3d rpg version of pokemon or a good zelda game.

    I will be excited when it's $150 cheaper and asians have figured out a way for me to pirate games on it.

    It's already been confirmed that a Pokemon game for the 3ds is in development. Also, Ocarina of Time is being ported and supposedly looks amazing (release date: June 2nd).

    Yeah I know what you mean. I probably would be waiting too except someone stole my DS and I really wanna play Pokemon Black/White. I think it would be a waste of money buy a regular DS now.

    Also, this is a fun game to play at work: Whenever a parent comes in with a kid playing DS, I tell the kid about the new 3DS and how amazing it's gonna be and how I can't wait to buy one. The parent usually just glares at me. THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR BRINGING YOUR MESSY KID HERE, BITCH.

    yeah well, you'd probably buy it in a second if you could somehow play WoW on it.

    Ok now I want one. Also I'm more interested now that I know I don't have to wear those stupid fucking glasses.

    I was wondering when the next Nintendo portable was coming out.

    I also was wondering when the first holographic 3D display would be used in a consumer product. I'm impressed.

    You adjust how far things pop out relative to one another.



    Actually... does it work by holography? If it was true holography it should still appear 3D in videos because it should be able to pick up parallax shifts. Apparently it does not...


    EDIT: I kind of figured it worked something like this, considering that you don't see a 3D image on a video camera:

    http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Nintendo...news-6237.html

    http://forums.cgsociety.org/archive/.../t-892954.html

    The image is divided into strips, one going to the left eye and one going to the right eye. The 3D slider controls the width of the strips, more or less, and in that way control the difference in angle between the two images... I think.

    I dunno. Something like that. All I know is that the 3d only works when you look directly at the screen, which is why this technology isn't used in TVs.

    Actually, it could work with a television, but the problem has to do with the allowable range of viewing angles. With a small portable device screen, your eyes are always going to be more or less pointing directly at the screen, so you only need two images which correspond to what your eyes would see at an angle of 0 degrees.

    A television is difficult because people have to be able to see the 3D image when they're looking at the TV screen from a wide range of angles, and even if you're looking at the screen dead-on you'll probably be close enough to it that not every part of the image is coming to your eyes at the same angle.

    The way to solve this with this parallax barrier technology is to use multiple sets of images that produce a 3D image at different angles. The problem with this is that your resolution in one direction goes down by 1/(2*the number of image sets produced for different viewing angles). You'd need extremely narrow pixels that are still bright enough to form an image. All I know is that people are working on very small, intense light sources that may be able to accomplish this. However, if I had to guess, I would think that holographic video would be developed before pixels are shrunken down to a size that would ever make high-resolution multiple angle parallax barrier 3D even possible.

    Oh yeah I meant to post to say I received my 3DS in the mail Monday. It's pretty cool.

    I haven't bought any 3DS games yet but the preloaded games are pretty cool. There's actually two augmented reality games preloaded.

    I'm disappointed that the Virtual Console (Nintendo store) and the internet browser weren't available at launch.

    God and the blackberry browse sucks balls
    Off topic: I dropped my BBstorm2 the other day and the touchscreen is all crappy now, but no scratches
    On topic: My brother bought one of these hoping to get a good resale price, but he failed. Looks good, and I'd like to play SF4 on a DS.... but too expensive. I grabbed a DSLite when it was $130, which has a broken hinge, so I'll need to replace soon. Maybe i'll just grab a new DSLite for $90 if they stay in production and lower in price because of their new product.

    I demoed one of these the other day. I was skeptical when I first heard about the 3DS, and remained skeptical up until I played SF4 on it. I agree that the price is not worth the product at this point (I mean, $250 for a portable is just too much for someone who doesn't travel all that much and has a PSP chock full of emulators and images), but perhaps one day I shall own one.

    ya bro, $250 is pretty steep for portable. Besides the obvious 3D graphics, the 3DS doesn't really feel that different from a DSi (which is $100 cheaper).

    I dunno if 3D graphics are worth the extra 100 bucks (still haven't played any full length 3d games yet), but at the same time I really glad to be one of the first to own a 3DS.

    I've only been an early adopter for two things ever: my Wii and my Zune.

    I love both to this very day.

    In about a year or so though the 3DSi micro or some shit will come out and I'll be able to get one of these suckers used for $150 or less. I'll wait until then. Or until the pokemans. Whichever comes first.

    I also had my DS Lite stolen within the last year and needed a portable system anyway. If I still had a DS I probably would have waited until the title lineup was more interesting before purchasing a 3DS.

    Jesus Christ you guys have a lot of disposable income.

    And here I thought I spent to much, but you guys just buy every new gaming system that comes on the market?

    I'm happy with my PC, though I'm considering getting a 3DS... eventually. I probably won't though because there'll probably be other things I'd rather spend my money on like clothes and eating out with friends.

    Being in a desirable field does have its perks.

    Like insurance or taco...bell....worker.....

    The cost is prohibitively high atm, but if my travel bumps once I actually get settled at my new job I will probably just get one anyway.

    Look I mean I don't have a big-boy income mmmkay and my rent is stupidly high for the crappy place I have in the crappy location I'm at (fucking proximity to DC inflating rents to ridiculous proportions)

    But even still has a graduate research assistant I don't make such terrible money compared to a Taco Bell burrito technician. It's just that when I can save money I choose to do so (I can't right now but could when my rent was a lot lower), so that probably a lot of the difference.

    1. I live with my parents.
    2. If you really want something, you'll find a way to buy it. I hardly ever buy new clothes or eat out with friends. I'd much rather save that money and spend it on a video game system.

    Priorities.

    I can feel you though sycld. DC area is not exactly the middle of Tennessee or anywhere in Arkansas in terms of cost of living.
