Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2011

We know that you can’t wait for the Nintendo 3DS. Good news Nintendo fans. You can now pre-order the device on Amazon. It won’t be long until you are playing 3D games without glasses and connecting to other 3DS gamers online.

It will be launched in Europe on March 25 and the US on March 27. 30 games will be available at launch. You can buy it on Amazon at $249.99, but they are limiting the order to one console per household until the launch date.

We finally have the US launch details of the Nintendo 3DS. The price is $249.99 and the release date is March 27, while Europeans will get it on March 25. Nintendo says that “30+” games will be available in the US during the launch, with more than 25 in Europe.

Europeans will have some exclusive 3D video content like sports footage and episodes of Shaun the Sheep. Not sure if we are getting anything exclusive or not. We will know soon enough.

Nintendo 3DS users in Japan feeling sick

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2011

Just like when Avatar came out in theaters, there are reports of Nintendo 3DS users feeling ill after using the new 3DS console in Japan. Some user have reported feeling sick after just a couple of minutes using the console.

As you probably know, the Nintendo 3DS features a glasses free 3D display, and Nintendo has recommended that it be used only by children over 6 years old and that the 3D time be limited. We aren’t sure yet if these are just isolated incidents, but it will be interesting to see how many users have the same problem when it goes on sale. Maybe everyone will be cross-eyed ten years from now.

Nintendo 3DS could get 3D video recording in the future

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2011

In a recent interview about the 3DS, Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the company wants to include 3D video in the future. Obviously that’s no guarantee that this feature will be added to the handheld’s 3D camera, but we might just find ourselves shooting low-res 3D video with the 3DS at some point in the future if all goes well.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather have them concentrate on battery life, so we can play for longer.

Nintendo 3DS gets disassembled

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2011

Man, it’s been quite the week for gadget teardowns. Seems like half the world must have their tables littered with parts. Now it is the Nintendo 3DS’s turn. Looks like a unit has prematurely left Nintendo’s care only to suffer a terrible fate.

There isn’t much new to learn here. We already knew about the 1300mAh battery, for instance. But if you just like to watch things get torn limb from limb, hit the link for a real treat. You sicko.

Nintendo 3DS may be hazardous to young childrens’ eyesight

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

Nintendo Japan has issued a safety warning on its website about the potential dangers of viewing images in 3D mode on its 3DS handheld console. The warning advises young children under the age of 6 to avoid using the device in 3D mode entirely.

According to the warning, “Vision of children under the age of six has been said [to be in the] developmental stage.” Since 3D content is delivered stereoscopically with different left and right eye images, the eyesight of children under 6 could be harmed since their eyesight is still developing.

Nintendo 3DS will have shorter battery life than DS

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2010

It’s no surprise really. Adding all of that extra power under the hood, providing a glasses-free 3D display on top, a wireless “tag mode,” and automatic wireless updates to the 3DS all add up to less battery life. Satoru Iwata himself says “it is inevitable that Nintendo 3DS will be a device which requires more frequent recharging than Nintendo DS” and that is the main reason that a charging cradle will be bundled into the new console’s retail package.

Iwata suggests that users deposit the 3DS into its cradle as soon as they get home. You will be charging this device a lot.

German tabloid reveals Nintendo 3DS Japanese launch date, pricing

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2010

We’ve all been waiting for some more details on Nintendo’s 3DS and now a German tabloid has leaked the launch date of the portable 3D gaming system. We aren’t sure how reliable these leaks are, but word is that Japan will get the 3DS on November 11.

This will be followed by a European launch in the Spring for about 200 EUR, or U.S. $270. An official announcement should come from a Tokyo press event by Nintendo on September 29th.

Nintendo 3DS Hardware Specs revealed

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on September 22nd, 2010

Nintendo’s next handheld, the Nintendo 3DS, will be much more powerful, as it’s hardware specs are a vast improvement over the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi. IGN is reporting on these new specs, citing “persons familiar with the hardware who spoke to us under the condition of anonymity,”.

Here are the specs: CPU: 2 x 266MHz ARM11, GPU: PICA200 133MHz GPU by DMP, RAM: 64MB, Video RAM: 4MB, Storage: 1.5GB Flash-based.

Nintendo 3DS may hit Japan on November 20

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2010

We can thank Japanese accessory creator keysfactory for a slip that may have revealed Nintendo’s plans in regard to the 3DS release date. A designer with the firm posted some Twitter updates (now deleted) that 11 add-ons for the game console would ship on November 20 and, apparently the 3DS itself. Nintendo has implied an end-of-year launch in at least Japan but hasn’t given us a firm date so far.

It’s not confirmed, but the details line up with Nintendo’s recent launch history. The Wii, DSi and DSi XL were all released on a Saturday, and Nintendo often prefers weekend launches.

Nintendo 3DS to be powered by a Marvell CPU?

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on August 25th, 2010

Speculation is that Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS portable 3D gaming handheld could be powered by Marvell. Marvell co-founder Sehat Sutardja dropped some hints during their quarterly earnings call. He says that Marvell chips will soon be used to power a game console.

“Approximately 15% of the sequential increase (in quarterly sales) was due to the initial production revenue from our ARMADA application processors, primarily as a result of a major customer preparing to launch a new gaming platform,”

Nintendo 3DS release date to be announced on September 29

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on July 29th, 2010

So now we have a date on which they will announce the release date for the 3DS. That seems just a tad silly to us. Why do we need a date to announce the date? Just tell us already. Nintendo has revealed that it will be releasing the official Nintendo 3DS date along with pricing details on September 29.

Mighty nice of them. We’re guessing it will be just before Christmas 2010. Then again, it could be as far off as Christmas in 2011.

Nintendo 3DS might support digital newspapers and magazines

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on June 22nd, 2010

When you think of a Nintendo handheld, you rightly think gaming, but the new 3DS might just support reading newspapers and magazines too. Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata has said that the company is looking at ways to automatically beam newspaper and magazine articles to a 3DS handheld.

The 3DS is fully capable of receiving data while in sleep mode, after all. It could automatically connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, and download the material of your choice. Then again this device still has a small screen and not so great resolution. It will be interesting to see what it can do.

Nintendo 3DS Additional Details

Posted in Nintendo DS by Darrin Olson on March 24th, 2010

Nintendo DSi 3DS announcementNintendo Japan announced that they will be unveiling a new 3D version of the Nintendo DS at E3 2010 in June, called the Nintendo 3DS. We’ve found some more details in addition to it being a glasses-free 3D device and backwards-compatible with your DS DSi games.

These are rumors mind you and we probably won’t know for sure until the unveiling in June. There’s talk that the 3DS could have a number of additional features giving new dimensions to the gaming possibilities on the device. These include an accelerometer allowing it to sense tilting and motion, a higher-resolution LCD screen from Sharp, and possibly both the top and bottom displays working together as a single display.
