Dislike the big red and blue goofy glasses so you can see in 3D? Nintendo’s 3DS has taken care of that.
Nintendo is releasing their newest DS yet. It is called the Nintendo 3DS. It’s top screen is able to let a person see the game in 3D without the use of 3D glasses. The switch next to the top screen (see figure 1) allows the player to adjust the depth of the effect. Nintendo purposely designed the bottom screen without 3D graphics because smudging and scratches would get in the way (and of course, fingers). Along with this amazing effect, Nintendo also added an analog stick (see figure 1). This is the very first time that Nintendo has ever done this with their DS systems. Nintendo hoped that it would make maneuvering the character easier.
Nintendo realized that the DSi was more popular because of the camera and decided to add a camera to this too. It has a camera built on the inside and outside so it can take videos and pictures with three-dimensional graphics as well as with two-dimensional graphics. The Nintendo 3DS’s camera has two lenses but the two are slightly separated to get the tree-dimensional effect. If you notice in figure one, the camera has been moved to the top of the system. This is different from the DSi and DSi XL. They have done this to make the use of the camera easier.
Handheld devices have been known to have bad graphics but these graphics are even better than the Wii and are possibly rival to the Xbox 360 and the PS3. The 3DS can even play music and movies on it (especially 3D movies). Nintendo combines a lot of different things into it; rumble feedback, motion controls, and an analog stick as stated before.
Nintendo has not said when they plan on releasing it or what the price is yet. More information will be released soon.
