It seems that if 3D on portable devices was easy, Apple would have beat them...

Wedbush Morgan analysts Michael Pachter has told CVG that the just-announced Nintendo 3DS will need to have more of a "breakthough in gameplay" than just a 3D display - otherwise other firms like Apple will simply mimic it.

Pachter mused over how Nintendo might achieve 3D without the use of glasses. "I don't understand the technology behind a 3D display that doesn't require glasses. If it's so easy to do, why would Samsung put out 3D HDTVs that require glasses? My guess is that Nintendo has figured something out that is either very cool and advanced, or is a gimmick, and until I see it, I really won't know."

Pachter went on to comment: "What's interesting to me is that Nintendo is so bold. It seems that if 3D on portable devices was easy, Apple would have beat them to it. If they truly pioneer a technology, my guess is that Apple will mimic the technology. Without a real breakthrough in game play (as happened with the DS), I'm not sure that this device will do much more than serve as a replacement for current DS owners."


Is this guy an analyst - or an activist - or a troll?

1. - Who cares if Apple mimics it? They gonna mimic Mario Brothers - good freaking luck! Ask sackboy about that, or sonic.

2. - TV's have bigger screens than 3DS = facepalm

3. - Why can apple invent portable 3D and not someone else? Racist much, Prachter? Or just an apple fanboy?

4 - 'Only be a replacement for current DS owners'? Double facepalm with 2 and a half twist. DS will soon be the best selling console of all time - 4 years faster than PS2.

What a tool - your thoughts on Michael Practer, Nintendo troll.

Apple can't mimic it for their phone at least.

Touch screens do not like 3D

The tech Nintendo is using is actually quite old.

The reason Apple hasn't copied yet is simply because there was no market for 3D on a handheld.

How can there be a market for something that isn't available yet?
Is there any reason not to think "3D without glasses? Sounds neat"?

First Sony was butthurt about this, now an Apple fanboy? If 3D is so easy, then you do it. >_>

Pachter is a business analyst and from everything I've ever heard him say, he has no clue what gaming is about. I've learned that most of what he says is complete crap and is just the ramblings of an old man trying to be "hip."

That Pachter has no idea what he's talking about. This is the internet, where idiots can write articles that sound clever. Everyone has a tiny bit of knowledge of technology or has spent a couple of hours on this board already knows more about it than this person.

It's like they told him to write an article about it and he went "Oh, what's this? Never heard of... i'll just do 20 minutes of research about it and then i can pretend to know about it. What's this, it uses 3D, mhmmm... it is a portable, alright..."

Yeah you know, Pachter, the one who said Nintendo would announce a Wii HD at this year's E3. And then went on to try to make the dumbtarded comment to try to justify his comment by calling PS3's Move the Wii HD...Yeah...
