Weird. I wonder how this 3D would work gamewise on a handheld. It's one thing when you're sitting still in a theater looking at a screen, but on a small mobile device - I'm just having a hard time picturing what kind of experiences it would offer and how good it could possibly work. Will be interesting to see (supposedly I'll be spending a day at E3 this year, so hopefully they'll be demoing something). Even though the PR comes from the main Nintendo site, a part of me wonders if it's just bullshit to make Sony shit all over themselves and freak out over their psp2 plans.
Seems like Nintendo of America wouldn't be pleased that the same week they're finally launching the XL in NA, Nintendo of Japan announces they are going to announce the DS successor.

I'm still very doubtful of 3D gaming (especially on a handheld) being anything other than a useless gimmick. I'm definitely interested to see what they're doing and how it's going to work, but I'm feeling really skeptical. I guess my main worry is that whatever they do will end up being especially hard on the eyes. I already find it hard to look at a small DS or PSP screen for extended amounts of time and adding in effects that are tricking your eyes seems like it might make headaches come even faster...
― Jeff LeVine, Wednesday, 24 March 2010 14:49 (thirteen years ago) link
according to unconfirmed reports the 3D in the screen can be turned off, so not every game will have to incorporate it. the same reports seem to suggest that the two screens will pretty much join up and the graphics will be bumped up to gamecube levels, both of which will be much more useful in the long run. its all guesswork at this point though - nintendo have said its going to be playable at E3 so we only have to wait 3 months to find out.

I like everything about it except that you can only look at it from one angle. Wld much rather have a DSi XL than this for that very reason.
― breaking that little dog's heart chakra (Abbott), Friday, 25 June 2010 04:31 (thirteen years ago) link
you can turn off the 3D easily, though, so no probs
― Nhex, Friday, 25 June 2010 04:38 (thirteen years ago) link
Yep, little worried about this:
The screen has a terrible, terrible angle of viewing
The elephant in the room, and the reason Nintendo was adamant that no one film 3DS games directly off the screen. This is going to be the system's make-or-break issue. The trick to the 3DS's visualization technology is that it (apparently) layers two screens one on top of the other. When you look at it straight-on, it looks like 3D! But tilt the machine even just a couple of degrees from dead-on and suddenly the illusion shatters and what you see is two ghost images rather than a single unified "solid." Look at it from a side-on, over-the-shoulder perspective and it's even worse. In a sense, the 3DS is the conceptual opposite of the DSi XL; the latter was purportedly designed to be a system that encourages people to gather round a single system and watch, but try doing that with the former and everyone's going to see something very ugly unless the depth slider is set to "off." More crucially, though, the 3DS's visual effect can break even for the person using the system if they don't hold it very, very carefully. I found that the natural movement of my hands and head during a fast-paced action game like Starfox 64 caused the system to move out of alignment for me. I wonder what impact this will have for long-term play; if you have to hold the system very carefully at a precise angle, it's going to become very tiring very quickly... to say nothing of the fact that the games which stand to benefit most from 3D visualization are the ones most likely to cause you to get you into the action and let your angle of viewing drift.
Still, I'm pretty pumped about the 3DS

It occurred to me that this reaction (while very sober and reasonable) is probably the most negative hands-on I've read about the 3DS. I have this suspicion that due to the press' tepid reaction to the original DS and opposite predictions for the PSP (as Parish mentions), perhaps the journalists would rather praise it now rather than looking foolish later (as it'll be easy enough to trash if it releases badly which is pretty unlikely) - but for now they're hesistant to point out shortcomings. Though of course, there's also the reason that Nintendo is strictly claiming that the system's far from finalized, in both hardware and software.
Also it's possible that there'll be a lot of launch titles that overuse or badly use the 3D (like the touch screen in the first gen DS games) and that'll change over time as developers get more used to it.
― Nhex, Friday, 25 June 2010 05:46 (thirteen years ago) link
don't think i've ever thrown my head about when playing a handheld game, so i can't imagine that being a problem. more worried about me being lefthanded & there being games that use a analog nub + stylus in right hand control system (although if you can use a finger maybe it would be like dual analog?).

I bought a 3DS grip and while I feel somewhat silly playing what appears to be a batarang in public it's worth it simply because of how much more comfortable the system is to hold & use with a grip in the mix. make sure you get one that will fit your system; not all grips are created equal
+1 for Rhythm Heaven Compilation; people on SA who imported it said there's a story you have to slog through, but I have faith that they'll do the localization proud. also stoked for SNES VC games to be released, particularly Earthbound and LTTP which I believe I get for cheaper since I had already bought both on Wii U? who knows. the idea of having to continue to buy these old ROMs is infuriating and insulting but I will keep doing it if only to signal to Nintendo that they should definitely keep cranking out ports like this; we might even get Mario RPG.

I'm perfectly happy with my New XL, but every time I see those colored XYBA buttons I get a burning urge to get one of those. that's a piece of consumer electronics with hellacious visual appeal. apparently the non-XL is only available as part of bundles so I'd have to get ANOTHER 3DS and go through the whole system transfer rigamarole. but damn some of these faceplates look nice as fuck; I really like the one made of wood (even if it costs $50 - although at least that's not as bad as the glow-in-the-dark Boo one which goes for $200ish).
― grinding like a jolly elf (jamescobo), Friday, 4 March 2016 06:53 (seven years ago) link
Yeah part of the reason I went for the n3ds non-xl was those colored buttons. It's just too good a look.
More hardware-locked virtual console is a bit eeeh, but also yes, I will buy those SNES games for my n3DS. I hope / think the NX will be a shift in terms of logical account sharing across systems and also cross-buy handheld/console.

Yeah I've seen a bunch of people trying to convince themselves that it's justified because the emulation needs the extra CPU, but when the first gen 3DS was handling GBA emulation just fine that's clearly bollocks.

― the uniqueness of our billionaires (bizarro gazzara), Friday, 4 March 2016 13:21 (seven years ago) link
To be fair the first gen was running the GBA games natively the same way they run DS games natively, they boot up in a different mode. Emulation is a lot more CPU intensive. The lack of crossbuy is however utterly laughable in 2016, and the pricing of these games is crazy. £8.99 for a 20+ year old ROM?!?

Couldn't they just do that for the SNES games too though? I mean even if that locks out your streetpasses while you're playing or whatever. I'm sure people with older hardware would rather put up with that than feel they're being encouraged to buy a whole new machine just to play pilotwings in 2016.
― JimD, Friday, 4 March 2016 13:58 (seven years ago) link
No, the 3DS contains a DS chipset which incorporates a GBA chipset, so when GBA games are played they are run natively using a GBA hardware chip. There is no SNES hardware chip in the 3DS so they can't be run natively, they would need to be emulated by the 3DS CPU. Presumably the OG 3DS CPU is not powerful enough to run SNES emulation.

Pocket Card Jockey is legit, one of those perfect "just one more" portable games.It's a solitaire horse racing hybrid, where you race horses around a track by playing games of simplified solitaire to a time limit. Yes really.If you lose too many races your horse gets sent to the farm and you try again with a different horse. Horses at the farm can be paired off to breed the next generation of horses, inheriting characteristics of their parents.The presentation is simple but cute, reminds me of the Rhythm Heaven games in its flat cartooniness.Oh yeh and it's made by the Pokemon people, there's a lengthy free demo available. Try it!

whole bunch of 3ds news worth bringing up:
- stoked for the imminent release of the DQ7 remake (even though it apparently requires you to go through an eight-step process every time you want to save), but nowhere near as stoked as I am for Natsume's port of River City Tokyo Rumble. naturally that one isn't available for preorder for some unfathomable reason, though.
- played a whole bunch of the crossword puzzle game on a train ride up to SF recently; it really is quite excellent, even though its handwriting recognition is kind of questionable at times (although then again so is my handwriting).
- I also plan on picking up Rhythm Heaven Megamix (which apparently has been out for months and I just never realized it) and Picross 3DS in the very near future.
- I guess the real big news is the recent expansions to the Streetpass games, which I am beginning to love all-encompassingly. the new games are all pretty great, as is the ability to get more puzzle pieces from StreetPass folks and bank up to 100 StreetPass instances at a time. I really ought to start taking my 3DS with me whenever I go out walking around the neighborhood if only to rack up connections.

thanks all! will be checking all these out. it is kind of a crazy library, 3DS, DS, and GBA all together, figured there had to be plenty of off-the-beaten-track titles worth exploring.

I'll do one later! was thinking a lot last night about the DS library before falling asleep: playing stuff like Ouendan, Trauma Center, Layton etc for the first time and how amazing that was. also Bangai-O Spirits is a good shout, forgot about that one
