That wouldn't be much different than PSP's video out, though?

Anyways, I'd certainly like video out on the 3DS, even on a non-3d TV

I'd like it to have such a feature, but I don't think we would use it for the next few years.

Do you think the 3DS should support video output in 3D so you can hook it up to your 3D TV and use your glasses? That'd be awesome and a +1 for Nintendo. Wish I had a 3D TV though.


theres no point in that when you can just watch 3D content on the DS. the funny thing is that the 3DS will cost a lot less then a 3D tv with like 200 dollar glasses. I am also 100% positive the 3DS is powerful enough to stream online content, like netflix or hulu. Stuff like ESPN or Netflix could very well feature 3D movies/sports for the 3DS I think though wi-fi.

No, even if I had the money to get one I'd still want to wait until both the TV and the 3D Glasses got cheaper. Not to mention the lack of available 3D content for televisions.

As someone who does own a 3DTV and has already watched it in 3D, no.

Why? Well, why didn't the original DS have an output cable? To answer that, it actually did, but it was only given to members of the gaming press for taking pictures of their DS games for articles. Reports that have gone back from them all say that it's never fun playing a DS game on a TV screen; the two screens and touch features just don't work well.

Yeah man. I made a topic about this the other day.

I have a bad ass Samsung 3D LED TV and I am praying that before this 3DS launches, Nintendo goes, "oh yeah, by the way, if you have a 3D TV, you can use this here wire to run it to your TV!"

God I hope SO.

It distorts color a bit from what i've seen

Mine doesn't distort color at all.

there aren't that many movies that have a 3d option out

True. I have Monsters Vs Aliens. But one big thing is depending on the TV, it may do 2D to 3D conversion. Believe it or not, it's pretty damn decent. The Samsung I own does conversion and it's awesome. Obviously, some shows look better than others as they aren't actually filmed in 3D, but for the most part it looks good.

Also, video games look sweet with the conversion. I play almost every game I own in 3D (with the conversion) since I got the TV in March. Gears of War 2 looks really good even though it's converted, as does splinter cell.

Not even worth it. 3D games don't even need a 3D TV

That's just incorrect. I mean I guess technically you could use anaglyph 3D (red/blue) or other means where you use crappy cardboard glasses, but believe me, that is no where near the quality of an actual 3D TV. These TV's look exactly like the movie theaters.

Also, you need 120Hz refresh rates minimum to be flicker free. Most if not all 3D tv's have 240Hz

Reports that have gone back from them all say that it's never fun playing a DS game on a TV screen; the two screens and touch features just don't work well.

I could see this. Though I'm still hopeful to have the chance to try it.

Buying a 3D TV to watch 3D content that barely exists. Sony was trying to push people into buying 3D TVs at their conference, but in my opinion 3D will never truly sell until they get rid of the glasses.

That said, the 3D tech the 3DS uses has it's limitations and cannot be used for large screen TVs, unless the large screen TV is usually being used by 1 person only. Well, the 3D can only be used by only 1 person, or a few people packed together in 1 spot at best. That being so the same technology for the 3DS cannot be unscaled to big screen TV size that easily, if at all.

With the slider option, you CAN turn off the 3D to get normal viewing angles off of TV using 3DS tech, but not everyone in the room will be able to use the 3D. That said, new big screen TVs in the past that had extremely terrible viewing angles STILL sold, so a 1080p TV with normal viewing angles but the option to turn 3D on with poor viewing angles may still sell.
The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him.
