    I've seen many footage of games being played on the 3DS although I didn't really see the 3D. To me, it just looks like they've upgraded the graphics so that the graphics can be compared to ps2/GC. Are nintendo just exaggerating the terms '3D'?

    Um... 3D was left out due to videos not able to view 3D, but 3D is there.

    It is pretty much impossible to see the 3d of the 3DS without
    1. a 3D camera capturing the footage in the correct position
    2. a 3D screen to view it on

    i suppose you could do the cross eyed thing but even then you need a 3D camera to capture the 3DS's screen

    They turn off the 3d effect in the videos because you can't record it......it will just look ghosted

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    There's no way you can see the 3DS' 3D
    a- Via a video recorded with a camera. 3D or not. The technology used with the 3DS works only with the human eye.
    b- Without being in front of the system
    c- On a monitor

    And most footage out there was recorded in 2D mode

    Even if it was recorded in 3D mode, you wouldn't be able to view it in 3D on a normal TV or computer monitor.

    I just thought of something. If they give us the ability to film in 3D on the 3DS... if you film the top screen of a 3DS with another 3DS, will it be in 3D?

    I would think so because each camera is seeing a different image which allows it to look 3D, but if you can, that's some crazy shit.

    I was lucky enough to attend last years Nintendo E3 Conference and I have seen the 3D in action. It's pretty much like seeing a 3D movie without the glasses. Some demos looked better than others (Metal Gear, Paper Mario) and others seemed a little unfocused (Kingdom Hearts). Its pretty crazy the first time you see it since its hard to believe how good it looks and its without 3D glasses.

    Nope. The cameras don't work as our eyes. What's on the screen isn't in 3D, our brain makes it 3D.

    You can't really record the 3D (you'd have to use two cameras to capture both pictures the 3DS is showing (one for each eye)).
    You need both pictures for the stereoscopic effect.

    Actually, that might be possible. You would need to find the right distance from the screen, but it might be possible.

    Oh okay. That makes sense.

    I thought it would work, but I thought it was crazy because it's turning something that is in reality 2D into 3D.

    I've seen 3D TV in action, I imagine the principle is the same. There's a 3D demo set up in my local Comet store, with the glasses on a stand. I hate the glasses.

    It could work. A 3D camera has two lenses, and each lens looks at the object it's recording at a slightly different angle. The 3DS screen is designed so that it shows two different pictures when viewed at different angles. So each lens of the 3D camera is "watching" the 3DS' screen at a different angle and "seeing" a different picture, and it might just be possible to record in 3D. In bad quality, but still, in 3D.

    Just a question, how long did your eyes take to adjust to the 3d?

    Having seen a 3d tv, and many 3d films - one can only hope the 3ds compares
