Wired.com: There’s an accelerometer and gyroscope in the 3DS. Does that mean it pretty much does what the Wii MotionPlus does?

Konno: Yes, the same type of motion sensing is possible.

Wired.com: Is that going to be an issue, if people are developing games that use motion but that motion moves the 3-D screen out of a player’s field of view?

Konno: First of all, 3-D is not the only feature that we are pushing toward with this hardware. We think that there will be software that will emphasize motion control using the gyro. During our experiments, we have found that in a first-person shooter, we can use the sensor to move the aiming and the pointer. In that case, your line of sight is still quite rigid, your eyes are pointing at the screen, and so the 3-D effect won’t be diluted. So there is the possibility that both 3-D and motion control could be used in the same software.


That's just a tid bit i thought was interesting. Check out the article.

You have done well, my apprentice.

By the way, this should tell those people that want dual analog sticks cause of gyro and touch screen being used as 2nd analog stick instead.

I actually was right then in how it could be used. I believe I made a similar post about using the sensors to change the camera view in a topic about how the 3D and gyroscope conflict.

Other than that I felt it was honestly more obvious that the gyroscope could be used with 3D if you embraced a few of the limitations in creative ways.
