    Could be interesting.... really though, everybody needs to calm down. One announcement and everybody goes apes*** on both sides of the aisle. Let's wait until E3.

    Personally, I'm going to wait and see on it, and only get it after it's been out for a bit if I decide too. I only got my DS itself about 2 years ago.

    I'm calling BS on this one.

    Though there is a grain of truth. New technology was recently developed that allows you to see things in 3D without the glasses.

    We'll have to see.

    Too soon! The DSi hasnt been out yet for even a full year in most territories, hasnt been supported at all(Outside of very poor DSiWare... it has much more powerful internals, where's the utilization of it?), and they have the nerve to screw over the consumers by replacing it?

    My ties to nintendo were pretty thin, but looks like I'm strictly a ms console/sony portable person now.

    At least the hardware sounds interesting and innovative. I see good things in its future.

    This is already been said; but nobody forced you to buy a DSi. The DSi has been out more than 5 years, because it's nothing more than a DS Phat in a prettier shell with a couple cameras built in. The DSi XL has also been out more than 5 years, even though it's not even out yet.

    Not too soon. Just in time!!.

    Faster clock rate and 4x as much ram says otherwise. Your right, nobody forced me to buy a DSi, and I admit to only purchasing one because my phat died on me. But think, why would nintendo release a portable, bother to give it better hardware(Again, CPU speed and ram, not the cameras) and then not support it? Will you be saying the same thing when support for the 3DS is dropped next year?

    I have nothing against the 3DS. For those with phats and lites, I'm sure it'll be a great handheld. I've just personally had it with Nintendo between this(lack of DSi support, not the 3DS announcement) and their poor software quality of late.

    And what exactly has made use of all that CPU power and extra RAM? Have there really been any (good) DSi-exclusive games released that make use of that massive CPU (maybe you like using My Healthy Cooking Coach, though)? Ignoring DSiware, there've barely been any DSi-exclusive games at all. If nothing uses it, the hardware may as well not exist.

    The Lite was the pinnacle of the DS line.

    Hadrian, you said DSi XL is expensive in England, but that's just because of the inflation, cos it sells for the same price as the DSi did in the first couple of months here. It's still overpriced compared to Japan or the US though.

    I'm actually comparing it to the price the original DS was with Mario Kart DS which was £99 when I bought it upon release. After 6 years you'd expect it to release at the same price.

    Sure it has extra features but all the same it has been 6 fucking years and £59 isn't worth two shit cameras and a little bit of extra ram.
     
  18. Holy crap! This is awesome!

    For 3D to work each eye has to be presented with a slightly different image. This is how our eyes work. They are like two cameras with a slight offset capturing the world. The brain the assembles the two images to a final 3 dimensional perception. The major catch here is that only if each eye gets a different image this system works. This requires a filter right in front of each eye so the eye in question receives the appropriate image. Otherwise the effect is not working. This is physics, plain physics. Now if you make a filter on the screen what you can only do is a sort of light bending filter. So you bend the light rays either slightly to the left or right alternating between each other. This way you would sort of redirect rays either to the left or right eye. This would do a sort of filtering but only, as you mentioned, if the eyes are at the exact right location. Being slightly off would destroy the result. It's the only way you can get this physically to work but it's totally impracticable.

    If this actually gets released I will see whether or not to buy it.
    If there are many good reviews, cheap prices, and better gameplay,GUI,graphics
    then the next PSP (possible new system) then I will get it [​IMG].

    But honestly that whole 3D thing isn't working for me :/.
