I ask because i am going to buy one when OoT is going to be released or after june 28.
If you mean, does the 3DS have HD then no. You should still get one though, it's definitely worth it.
this should be on AskGbatemp
anyway... I beliebe not. You don't need HD on a handheld, unless it has a HDMI output for the LCD.
The 3DS doenst have one
Sorry, but the 3DS is not in HD, it would have been cool if it had though...
It's not HD resolution, but it's still really sharp.
It isn't like that it would be upscaled like on the TV,because the games are made for the 3DS screen resolution.
Is their even and agreed standard about what pixel-to-screensize ratio equals 'HD'. Seems like as a buzzword its pretty meaningless. When I was playing pc games a decade ago I don't remember going 'wow, with my new ram I can up the resolution of this game up to HD'
A handheld like the 3DS doesn't have a large enough screen to benefit from HD. Since the screen is 320 × 240, if the video (Or game) is output in a higher resolution, you won't be able to notice unless it's hooked up to an external monitor.
1280x720 pixels or higher.
No, the 3DS is a handheld. It doesn't need HD.
HD is a resolution, and has absolutely no bearing on graphical quality output of a system.
It has very good graphics.I will get it with pilotwings resort,OoT,PES2011 and maybe lego pirates of the carribean.
pilotwings isn't good.
Play Master League
Lose hours of your life
Both games have amazing visuals too
20 hours of gameplay is good.
No, Pilot wings is a good way to show the 3DS its stuffs.
It's not ratio, it's pure resolution.
3DS has no HD (1920 X 1080), and don't expect it on other handhelds either.
Despite that the graphics of the 3DS are still very good and vivid.
So high end mobile devices like the Desire HD and the iPhone 4/5, which display at a higher resolution than the eye can see, aren't actually HD simply because due to their screen size the resolution is only around 640x960?
Surely the ratio of screensize to pixels must come into play when deciding if a device's 'R' is classified as 'H'? If you put a piece of card over your HDTV which only shows 800x600 of the pixels and look at a face in the cut-out portion, are you no longer seeing the image in 'HD'?
I'm pretty sure that'll come soon.
The effective resolution that you actually see is 400 x 240 -- less than the PSP. It's not HD by any stretch.
The graphics can still be really good sometimes, but resolution is not a strong point of the 3DS.
HD is 1280x720 pixels or higher.
Anything less is EDTV (480 progressive scan pixels or higher), or SDTV (less than 480i)
It has absolutely nothing to do with screen size.
If you want to go make a ratio about how nice it looks relative to screen size and resolution, go ahead. It's not HD.
Side Note: HD doesn't matter.
You don't actually believe that nonsense do you? You'd have to actually hold the iPhone 4 about 12~18 inches away from your face to not be able to see the pixels. Any closer and you'll see them. 328 pixels per inch might sound like a lot on paper, but it's still much lower than what the eye can process.
Well if that's how we've decided to define the term 'HD' then it's meaningless for a handheld device then. The NGP certainly won't be HD and in fact it's possible handhelds will never be classified as HD, seeing as how you would pass the limit for a discernable difference before you reached those numbers.
Interesting that I could make a screen with pixels the size of beermats and as long as I made it big enough it would still be counted as "HD"
