I was browsing the news and I saw this:

http://www.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/Science%2Band%2BTech/Story/A1Story20130405-413739.html

"Singapore invention lets you watch 3-D movies on phones"

It uses a specially designed screen protector which is undergoing patent.

Even though it was probably designed with 3-D movies in mind, it would also open up opportunities for 3D games on mobile phone and handphone.

Thoughts and comments? What do you think would happen if this came out? They are taking preorders for it. I think this would probably not take off unless some games start to use 3D technology to utilise it.

Htc evo 3d would be the phone you were thinking of. Its been out a while before the 3ds too.

No one seemed to care about the 3d capabilities when it first came out. :-)

When mobile phones get Pokemon/Mario/Zelda/Dragon Quest/Monster Hunter, Nintendo portables might be in trouble. But that's not going to happen is it?

Most people don't even care about the 3D capabilities of the 3DS heck most of the time I forget they exist, people buy the 3DS because of its games. Almost everyone will admit the 3D is just a gimmick and doesn't add much to gameplay.

Lol. Good one, TC.

Nobody bought the 3DS because of the 3D.

And nobody is going to buy that phone just to play appstore games in 3D.

The two are completely different markets and completely unrelated.

3D is a useless gimmick. People want the 3DS because it's Nintendo.

There might be a small amount of competition among portable devices but there's absolutely none with other 3D devices.
