The problem with glasses-free 3D...

Well, there's no problem with the 3D itself, but marketing the console around it may have been a bit of a mistake. Why? Well, simply put, glasses-free 3D technology is so goddamn cool that every handheld is probably going to get it soon. I can imagine Apple calling a emergency conference right after Nintendo revealed the 3DS to start making a 3D iPhone. And I guarantee the PSP2 will also have 3D when it's finally released.

Put simply, marketing a console around a "gimmick" that every handheld will probably soon have might have been a mistake. Granted, the DS's gimmick was the touch screen, and even after that became commonplace the system still sold well.

Meh, I just hope I can brag about having a 3D system for more than just a few months before every phone has it.

Some phones and cameras in Japan already have 3D, if I'm not mistaken.

Still, this is probably the kick no-glasses 3D needs.

So, it's a mistake for them to make a 3D gaming system, because others will likely create a 3D gaming system?

Anyways, I don't see anything wrong with it. It'll be great fun no matter. 3D or not.

I can hear it now.

"Hey, what's that?"

"The Nintendo 3DS. It becomes 3D without glasses!"

"Yeah? Well my phone does that. Why would you waste it on something stupid like video games?"

What in God's name would 3D on a PHONE be used for. I use my phone for PHONE calls and nothing else, am I too old at 23? lol

LOL TC fails, Apple cannot make a 3D iPhone without getting rid of the touch screen it already has.

Sano, I hope your first language is not English. I never fully understand what you are saying.
