    Sharp launches a small screen 3D without glasses

    Well, that's great news!
    At least now we know it's doable, it won't be like that DSiware thingy that everyone thought it would be. [​IMG]

    x / 2 = 1x / 2 = 1/2x = 0.5x = 50%x

    Yeah, I think these will be the screens used on the 3DS. Although, if production begins in September, how will Nintendo have one at E3? I guess they will have a prototype or something to use in the 3DS.

    Well, if Sony shows even the slightest bit of doing that, Nintendo will probably release the 3DS either this coming holiday season (8 months to shove money down developers throats.), or just slightly before whatever Sony is going to dish up.

    My money is firmly placed around Q3 though (This or next year, probably next), it's really always been there launch point, it gives just enough time for the craze to catch on and then BAM! Holidays.

    I read about this earlier on on another site. the screen is vibrating or something that's why it's unsutable for large sceen tv's. it will be perfect for handhelds etc.

    it seems like it will be very practical since 30cm is quite far considering ur playing a handheld game... 12.5cm also looks like a very large screen
    sharp is pretty good so i think tht wouldnt be bad if they actually did take their screens

    EDIT: I think I mis-read the initial post, so my post made not a lot of sense, ignore it.

    Well then, it looks like the DSlite will be my last hand held after all. If they're gonna use some magic screens that require both eyes to see the 3D image, then the 3DS will be useless to me since I only have one eye to see with.
