    Nintendo is releasing a 3D, glasses-free portable game console called the Nintendo 3DS, to be "enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses". Sony, your move.

    But eight and nine year-olds seem to like watching movies in 3D, so why wouldn't they enjoy playing video games in 3D?

    Opinion: The problem was Sony doesn´t have imagination. "Children of eight and nine years playing a 3D title is a bit weird."

    More rare would be that 10 year old are playing COD, with a PEGI rated game to +18, and even Robin Williams testifies that it exists.

    I think they just took a shot at Nintendo implying that Nintendo only appeals to children.

    Of course they will wait until they see how the 3DS does and then the PS3DP will be released some time down the line, they ALWAYS copy Nintendo, apart from when they ripped the Eyetoy off Sega.

    This is why Microsoft are ahead of them, they took what was missing and built on it, they took a lot of the Nintendo crowd away. Sony really needs to concentrate on what is missing rather then what the others are doing, that is how Nintendo got ahead of them all.

    I can see that Sony is trying to be a in-between thing of having a Wii/PS3 on one console but those new gamers that got introduced by the Wii aren't going to go for it as its out of the price range and many have lost interest in the Wii so may not even bother. They did a big campaign here trying to do the "casual" thing with that EyeToy Pets thing, and that failed.

    I'd love it to succeed for them, to be a major part of competition in the motion sensing thing so that Nintendo will have to up their game but I don't see it happening.

    Thanks for posting the info but as pointed out by Joe there's already a thread about this. Cheers.
