I bet devs aren't lying about the 3DS's power

and how it rivals the PS3/360.

It's running 3D on a PORTABLE device, which means it's essentially running 2 games, or at least beaming the picture to 2 screens which requires quite the amount of power. The only things we have seen are demo videos of a few games, the rest are blown-up screens that are blurry and pixelated (mario kart and the other racing game come to mind).

I don't doubt that this thing has more power then the Wii. Imagine if a company didn't use any 3D and just rendered the game like any other game we have now, I bet it could look like a launch 360/PS3 game.

I'm pretty sure the people who are actually working with the thing know a teensy bit more about it than us. They might be exaggerating a bit, but you can't call them wrong, what with them actually, y'know, knowing what the thing can do.

A graphics chip is still limited by what it can factually do, even if you double the processing speed. You can't link two Gamecubes together and suddenly expect them to be able to use current-gen graphical effects or HD resolutions, they're just not made for that.

Kid Icarus has noticably worse graphics than the Gamecube, even when in motion. By no means bad, but I'd hold my judgment.

I can't wait until they remake Mother 3 for it!

...It's never gonna happen is it?

Anyway, yes, look at Kid Icarus, that was real GAMEPLAY! The grapics are great!

It doesn't. End of story.

The 3DS may be powerful, but there is no way it even comes close to the 360 or PS3.

The proper phrase is "couldn't care less". "Could care less" means you care.

It's sub PS2 in rendering abilities, anyone who says otherwise? Just wishful thinking, and chinese whispers from some unnamed, but appaarantly reputable developers, through IGN
