So graphically what is the 3DS comparable to? PS2 and Gamecube perhaps?

Read. Judging by just the effects we've seen so far, we can place the 3DS from anywhere between the PS2 to slightly bettering the Wii.

Middle ground between wii-360.

it has to process everything twice so the technology behind it must be astounding.

About PS2 level I'd say. Keep in mind too that the 3DS screens are still smaller and lower resolution (fewer pixels) than the PSP's screen.

There's only one way to answer this question: WITH A FREAKING PIC!

Yeah,

the problem is, we have seen very little gameplay screens or footage. The RE screens look like X360... but that's obviously not rendered in-game. The MGS vid looks awesome, but the quality of the vid isn't great. Sometimes off-screen gives the impression of looking better. The Kid Icarus vid had me thinking somewhere in between the DS and GCN, but the MGS vid looks a lot better. Some MGS screens look great too, but again... they may not be rendered in game (though some jaggies in some screens have me doubting).

So there is a difference as well, between the "2D output" we can see on our pc monitor, and on the other hand, the 3D effect that requires everything to be rendered twice at a resolution of 400x240 or about. So that's about 1/3rd in resolution lower than the GCN and PS2 had to render (640x480 vs 800x240), but from two different angles as well, meaning double the poly's, double the effects etc...

So yeah, in order to have graphics comparable to PS2, it would need to be more powerful. But we will not experience like that. It will manifest itself in the 3D effect which we can't experience here.

summerclaw's got the best answer.

Mario Kart 3DS is like GameCube x 0.5. Naked Sample is Wii x 1.5. Street Fighter IV is 360 x 0.4 Kingdom Hearts 3DS plays PS2 graphics straight.

If that makes any sense.

Let me rephrase that.

Naked Sample is PS3 x 0.3
