The 3D entertainment craze continues to spread to video games. This time, it is Nintendo’s turn. They will introduce a handheld console that plays games in 3D without the use of special glasses. The handheld device will be called the 3DS, succeeding Nintendo’s DS series of portable gaming consoles.
Whew! I was itching to buy a DS Lite once the price lowers to my preferred range. But I may have to scratch this one out. The 3DS sounds cooler. But I probably will have to wait more years once it is out as I will have to wait for the price to get lower ha ha!
The new 3DS device is expected to be backwards compatible, allowing it to play DS and DSi games. The 3DS name itself is a temporary name until the official name is revealed at the E3 convention. Nice one. It always is a good thing to be able to play games for old generation consoles so that the games bought will not go to waste.
As to how it will work and look like … let us wait and see … Photo taken from CNN.
