You can see the 3DS with your own eyes (if you live in Tokyo…)

As I was going home tonight, I couldn’t miss the huge new ad put in Place by Nintendo in the middle of the Shibuya station: a huge picture of Arashi and their 3DS, as well as a bunch of actual devices that you can see for yourself, to feel the “3D effect” offered by Nintendo’s new device.

Since I’m an awesome photographer, I took a great picture, in which you can see people looking at the 3DS. Yeah, you wish you lived in Japan, I know :)

The nintendo staff was also giving away some flyers describing the device and upcoming games, here’s a page showing a dozen games that will be available at the release. (If you don’t like dogs and cats, you’re out of luck… well, there’s still the dinosaur game… I wonder if you can interconnect games, I’d love my T-rex to play with my wife’s poodle)

    I don’t see anything existing in this only the 3d screen which you will find it cool for the first 15 minutes then it will be like the other screen ( from my experience in 3d cinemas) and always nintendo devices have alot of bad games such as Mario,sonic,and dogs games that I don’t like at all (and it’s rare for it to get some good games like metal gear solid)
    So I prefer a NGP which have cool games like uncharted ,metal gear solid 4 and have some cool features like a big screen and analogs and lots of cool features. That is my opinion you may like it or not, some people like Mario and this things so they better get a 3ds.

      dude i know some of you are Sony fans but you cant tell Mario games bad, I know that Sega has fu***d Sonic and Nintendogs is not bad is a great game, but is for the casual, but not for that is a bad game.

    @ wololo, your right man you got me, i really do wish i live in tokyo with all those cool gadgets available. have you seen the actual 3D effect of the 3DS? if so, how well would you rank it from a scale of 1 to 10? just to have an idea if i would order one since it will take months for that device to be sold in our country.

      Yes, I tried it. As long as you are at the correct distance, I must admit the effect is quite impressive (unlike what I said for the Sharp Galapagos…either the technology is not the same – unlike I was told – or I was at the wrong distance from the screen when I tested the Galapagos).
      There are still issues that only long term usage can test: How long can one play before having their eyes bleeding? honestly, the entire Avatar movie was kinda painful on my eyes…
      Can you actually play always at the same distance? Moving a few centimeters makes the effect look not so great (at first when I tested the 3DS I was like “meh”, then I moved back a few centimeters, and I was like “ah, awesome!”)
      How useful will the 3D actually be? sounds cool, but it’s only a gadget…unless Nintendo has some contract with 3D movie makers… ?

    I know that this is off topic but i have an idea about liquidzigong signing kernel stuff. The PSP 3000 has a PRE-IPL which only lets signed IPL onto the PSP 2000v3, PSP 3000 and PSP GO. But if liquidzigong signed the custom IPL applied to permenant CFW (e.g. 5.50 GEN-D3) wouldn’t the unhackable PSPs get a permenant CFW. Would this work? Please reply back.

    Aright wololo, tell us: How’s the 3D? Is it really good or is it all hype?

    Meh. The current PSP already has 3D, and this is only a slight step ahead of it in terms of power. The NGP………………….well, it’s something else!!

    Boo! NGP owns this.
