kind of a weird question about the resolution

#1sockesockePosted 7/21/2010 10:29:16 AM
on normal screens (not with this new 3d effect) the resolution is written number X number....since the 3ds has a new dimension wouldnt the new way to write the resolution be something like: number x number x number?

This is the 3DS, not the Resolution. Besides it's been named the Wii for the longest time. Geez some people

How would you represent a second set of pixels don't increase the resolution, but add a second POV?

The best way I can think of is a p/i system where 800x240 games or media that don't use the sterescopy are refered to 800m and stereoscopic games and media that use the feature are 800s.
