Nintendo 3DS

Post  .. on Thu Jun 17, 2010 7:33 pm

I know we have discussed this in the E3 thread, but I think the 3DS deserves its own thread.

If you go to Nintendo's E3 site, they have a list of games with screenshots. http://e3.nintendo.com/3ds/

One game in particular I want you to look at is Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. If that is legit 3DS Chaos Theory screenshots then I am fucking stunned. Look at it, it looks great for a handheld. I swear this is going to be great.

Obviously the 3DS is more powerful than the N64 given that Ocarina of Time is receiving small graphical upgrades. I can't wait for the 3DS. I think the only problem for Chaos Theory would be the controls but hopefully they will work it out.

I am looking forward to it, I really am.

Ocarina of Time
Star Fox
Chaos Theory
Paper Mario
Kid Icarus
Hell maybe even Samurai Warriors.

Soo... in a completely new thread and all... who is excited for the 3DS?

You bet your ass I'm excited! It's a day one for me.

BTW, it seems to be at least as powerful as a gamecube. Remember this is the first games, so it will only look better has the devs masters the dev kit.

It really makes me giggle that Paper Mario is going to be on a 3DS... Razz

But holy shit. I didn't realise how many awesome games there were going to be for it! This is something I definately have to save for.

There are a shit-load of developers lining up to make games for the 3DS.

I can't wait for the Paper Mario. Traditional RPG. With possibly a chain chomp as a partner unless he is just a test partner.

I wish Pokemon Black and White were being made for the 3DS. 3D battle and idle animations ftw!

Every devs agrees that the 3DS will be a major breakthrough in gaming. They also say the 3D is incredible, even better when you consider it requires no glasses at all and you can even set the 3D for every person's need.

Nintendo is once again the master of portable consoles.

Man Nintendo went disruption innovation on Sony's ass.

Reggie - "Who likes 3D glasses? No one wants to wear those ugly things. With the 3DS you get the 3D you want without the glasses!"

Sony - "The PS3 has great 3D! Here just put on the glasses."

*Nintendo win*

But that doesn't necessarily mean Sony won't make some money off of their 3D.

I am willing to bet however there will be a Pokemon game for the 3DS.

The thing is, the 3DS will cost WAY less to experience 3D.

A 3DS? Worst case scenario; 350$ Best case scenario; 250$ (Either way it's going to be more expensive than a Wii.)
3D on Playstation 3? Well first, the console (300-350$), then the 3DTV (2000-5500$) then the damn glasses (150-200$ a pair).

Yes the 3DS is smaller. But the price is there, too.

I think $250 will be too much for many to buy a hand held, unless they're apple whores. I think the 3DS will cost $200.

That is possible. First of all how much was a normal DS or DSI? It is either equal to that price or higher. More than likely higher.

A DSI XL is 189,99$

Of course, knowing Nintendo they will try to keep the price as low as possible, but I don't think it's going to be 200$ For that kind of technologies, it's too low.

DSi is $170 USD
DSi XL is $190 USD

The 3DS, spec wise, is about the same size and weight as the DS Lite. Just slightly thicker and about .3oz heavier. So I think it'll be $200 USD and the DSi's will get price drops.

Edit: Nintendo could totally sell it at that price. Not like they're hurting in money. And if they want to keep the #1 position solidified, they will have it low cause they have competition form Apple. Also, the PSP go is $250.

Well, I was actually expecting Reggie on the stage at E3 to say "Are you wondering what we did with all the money the Wii and the DS gave us? Well BAM! There it is!"

You know how Sony had Kevin Butler.

If he were alive, Nintendo should have gotten Billy Mays. I don't know why Razz

Yea SmashBro I would say your price range could be accurate. I think the 3DS is supposed to come out next April right?

Since they never specified, any speculation for release date is about as good as speculating the price. Nintendo did say in 2011, otherwise I would expect it to cone out Q4 this year for the holiday season. Not sure about April next year though cause I think April of this year was a poor selling month for games compare to other months. Then again, Easter weekend this year came earlier than normal, so that was probably a factor.

Personally, I would still expect Nintendo to release the hand held sometime in the second half of 2011, because they are more known for releasing major titles and systems around that time. The Original DS launched in September and the Wii in November. However, the DS Lite did launch in June, so I could be wrong and the Big N will release it as early as April. Anytime before August, the better, that way I can put it down on a wish list for a birthday present. Razz

I did a quick google and the rumor release is 1st quarter 2011. So maybe. I'm not sure what the sales have been on DSi's, but if they have been slipping lately, then Nintendo should release it sooner than what I was speculating.

Source: http://business-and-finance-1357.blogspot.com/2010/06/nintendo-3ds-release-date-3d-gaming.html

Also, I need to invest in Nintendo stock (something that should have been done in 2006 >.>).

http://ds.ign.com/articles/109/1099732p1.html

Article comparing 3DS graphics to old DS counterpart games. StarFox and Kingdom Hearts look great on the 3DS in the comparison. To me, these don't look like Game Cube graphics. Maybe low end Game Cube games or, developers just need a chance to really push the hardware to it's limits, but I wouldn't go as far to say that the 3DD has the power of a Game Cube. At least for now, I'd like to be proven wrong. Then again, maybe I'm being a bit unfair because when I think Game Cube graphics, games like Metroid Prime come to mind.

God I would love Metroid Prime for the 3DS. But.. controls would sorta be wonky and with a small screen maybe not.

And don't forget it's technically new technology. Take early PS2 games and compare them to later versions and you'll see there's a huge gap in quality because the programmers have learned exactly what the system can and can't do.

The only question is if Nintendo will stay with the 3DS long enough for that to come into play, or if they'll come out with some sort of odor based DS.

A new comic just went up at CAD. It brings up an unintended but likely consequence to being 3D.
