That would be a pretty ingenious use of the '3DS' title, but I doubt it unfortunately (just unpractical imo).
Yeah, I agree. The thing having just one 3D screen is more probable than 3. Although the hiimdaisy 4koma edit is funny.

Here's a wild thought - what if 3DS was iOS4 compatible?

For what it's worth, Sankaku Complex has a "leaked photo" of the device itself. Take with biggest pinch of salt ever.

Christ, the top screen isn't even lined up correctly. :lol

Loved the one with eleven buttons (maybe more - how many shoulders?) and an eight-way D-pad.

*clicks on KissxSis story*

.....Oh GOD NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

In order to allow this, Nintendo would have to create their own syncing program (similar to iTunes or WMP) and I doubt they would.
How exactly would that be hard? You say that like it would be a huge undertaking and present a hardship for Nintendo. Huh?

I never said it would be hard.
I'm just saying they won't do it.

E3 pictures trickling in and absolutely no Nintendo branding or games anywhere.

BAH

Why do they need it?
I mean, they can't put up adds to Zelda or Xenoblade or LS yet, if they haven't even announced them.

If I were Nintendo, I would put up the booth during the conference (no leaks) and it would be done by the next day (assuming that the official hands on day is on wednesday)

gat damn. less than 3 days. argh the wait is excruciating!
It's weird to think that in just a few days we'll know all about on the 3DS. It still feels to me like some far off thing that we're not going to be seeing for years, even though we're just days away from seeing it.

I feel the same way. But then I realize that after seeing it, I'll have to wait for a good eternity to play it.

I'm pretty ignorant, but do you think you have to hold the 3DS at a specific angle to see the 3D image? If the 3DS has a gyroscope, wouldn't tilt games ruin that image?

So what you're saying is we only have several more days to stir up crazy rumors, right?

pretty much. if somebody thought they were impatient now, just wait till after e3 when they'll have to wait for months till 3DS is available.

also, none of us will see the whole stereoscopy hoopla till the thing is in the store :/

There will be a limited viewing angle for 3D, yes, though, it shouldn't be a problem for the most part.
As for tilting, obviously any time that tilting is needed, 3D won't be.

I was confused for a second I was wondering how the top screen was suppose to stretch out.

I doubt its going to be three screens, I'd love design that allowed the top screen to be folded all the way back. But the 3d screen probably won't have touch and 3d.

Waking up to a GAF thread tomorrow saying "NINTENDO CANCELS E3 EVENT IN FAVOR OF OCTOBER SHOW"
You are no longer too reasonable for this forum

The Sharp-made 3D screen posited was supposed to be a touchscreen as well (I dunno if multitouch, though), and I dunno if they even make non-touchscreen ones (seems like a waste).

maybe it has a two way hinge. That would allow for super simple iphone styled games to put put on the system with ease...
