Wow… did Nintendo just announced a new hardware? I still can’t believe it… According to Engadget, Nintendo just released a press release that a new 3D-capable “portable game machine” aka Nintendo 3DS will be launched soon. The Nintendo 3DS will backward compatible with DS games, so DS/DSi owners can rejoice! Nintendo is planning to announce more details of the hardware in this year’s E3 (15th June 2010). So far, the only detail of the hardware is that the 3DS won’t require any special glasses to view the 3D effects. I think it will be something similar to the 3D photo frame by Fujifilm.
I’m bit surprised that Nintendo decided to announce the new hardware now. And I never expect them to do 3D since Sony probably stronger in this. Will the next-gen PSP 3D-capable?
