SO, where does this put games like golden Sun DS, and Scribble 2. Kinda hoping they just get pushed back really, Ive waited this long for Golden Sun, I'd rather it use the new tech

well that's my crappy guess anyways

there's also a way to do it by layering lcd screens. demos of these tvs were shown in japan recently and monitor versions have been shown a few years ago although the tech was very expensive and early back then.

So does this mean there won't be 2 screens? I think the effect would be kind of broken if there is a big gap in between the 3D graphics.

If they are really saying no glasses, then they probably have the "glasses" themselves as the screen. So the screen will need to be slightly bigger and the hardware will need to be able to output two simultaneous images.

So, not much more than the DS already has.

Two things to expect:

1. Customers suing Nintendo for eye problems.

2. A bunch of companies suing Nintendo for patent infringement: "We thought of it first! See? We patented that technology in 1986!"

I'm going to laugh my ass off if it just has two screens side-by-side on the bottom that you see at the same time to create a pseudo-3D effect.

Hm, I'm not a fan of 3D, but glasses are a big part of the reason why. We'll see...

But there's no doubt it's going to be huge.

Hopefully there's a feature that lets you turn it off and revert to regular 2D gameplay.

I'm pretty sure Nintendo won't eliminate players with no depth perception since there's quite a lot of them. But we'll see.

So most likely this will be one screen displaying 3D instead of two?

Hey guys, the screen itself almost certainly functions as the pair of "3d glasses"

It's probably just polarized and the two screens are projected behind it.

Hopefully now the gap between the two screens will be extremely minimal, as well as touch screen capabilities on both.

there is the avatard joy juice issue, but 3d is more visual graphic than control of ds or wii, so hc gamer types are more into it, so I do not agree with you

Glasses-free 3DTVs exist in prototype now. Their main issue is that the 3D only works if you're sitting in certain spots.

When it comes to handhelds, though, they can pretty safely assume that your head will be directly in front of the screen, a foot or so away.

Wow, surprised they went ahead and announced it.

But, yeah... it's true. This was floating around GDC as being confirmed by people working on the hardware.

What I've heard is...

1) Two screens, with virtually no seam between them when open
2) Screens are higher resolution, but exact resolution is unknown
3) Powered by nVidia Tegra
4) Roughly as powerful as a Gamecube, and apparently similar to program for
5) Uses carts - believed to be same size as DS/DSi carts, only with different guts
6) Due out in 2010 in at least one territory

Looking forward to seeing it.
