    The 3D effect looks cool, but how exactly will it work. I mean, I could play a game at any angle, so how would it know what angle I am playing the game at. It might be annoying playing games in 1 angle.
    it's being fitted with a gryoscope and motion sensors so I'd have thought it'd be pretty possible to alter the camera accordingly. Console looks groovy though! want to remain sceptical of it but then I was of the Wii and look how that turned out.

    Screen shots look immense as well for a hand held, high hopes!

    ...and a 3D remake of ocarina is gonna be sweeeeeeeet!
  • 3D gameplay without the 3D glasses, is it? That's... something else alright. How they've managed that's unreal.
  • I'm reserving judgement on the 3D aspect until I can actually see it working in person. The actual device and the rest of the hardware does impress me and I can see me finally replacing my DS Lite.

    Wow. I wasn't expecting it to look like that. That's quite advanced looking.
    It looks barely better than PSP. Sure, it's leagues ahead of what DS was, but PSP was launched over 5 years ago with graphics rivaling that.

  • Also for the MGS 3DS one they had a team of like 6 people do for a short while. For the PSP one they had a full team and full development cycle to work with it.

    Look at the new RE game. Capcom has said those're all in game screens. I'm trying to find the trailer for it.

    Sorry, but there is no way that is in game. 3DS is more powerful than PSP, but only to the extent that Wii is more powerful than PS2.

    Thanks for posting that... I saw it a few days ago & was planning on posting it here but forgot where I found it.

    So you are calling Capcom liars now? The proof is in the footage...

    I would also like to direct you attention towards...

    The Demo isn't really on the 3DS. Yes it might be the technology behind the 3DS, but as long as I don't see it on the screen itself I'll stay neutral about it.
    Besides, the RE screenshots could be pre-rendered cutscenes.
  • The video of Kid Icarus looks about the same as what the Wii can handle graphically, so no, there is no way that either of those videos could possibly be real-time in-game graphics on 3DS.

    I beg to differ. That looks like a blocky PS2 game, 3DS looks easily like something on the 360.


    Here. Here's a better comparison picture.
