That could be an interesting Aspect ratio...

#1NarrooPosted 6/16/2010 7:22:39 AM
The effective resolution of the top screen on the 3DS is currently 400x240, or so, which gives us an aspect ratio of 16:9.6
But, the literal resolution, to make the 3D effect possible, is 800x240.

If a developer decided to forgo 3D effects, that could be a really high resolution horizontally...

Also: Anyone know why the 240 Isn't doubled as well?

I think its because stereoscopic is only the X plane, not the Y plane.

So no 3D games where you hold the 3DS like a book. D:

...that might not necessarily be true. The games would just have to look significantly worse because you're using a smaller resolution set.

Perhaps they should double the vertical if possible too....?

They'd have to increase the size of the screen if that was the case.

Our eyes are spread horizontally, not vertically.

So does that mean only the top screen is in 3D? or is it both screens?
#9DenusPosted 6/16/2010 9:33:03 AM
5:3 for a whole number aspect ratio.
