Nintendo's 3D Nintendo DS, News

So early today I decided to check out to see what types of new gadgets were in the news. I had already heard about Nintendo DSi XL, and frankly found the entire concept to be a major rip-off and let down for those of us who recently picked up the DSi around Christmas time.

Naturally kids are going to want the larger screen that the XL has to offer, but seeing that you will only get a lousy trade in rate on your DSi for a DSi XL trade in, it's a total rip.

A bit disappointment in Nintendo lately, but today I hear the news that they are going to be releasing yet another DS hand-held. Just as I thought I had heard enough about Nintendo, and their damn DS handhelds, this one particular one struck my interest.
This one was going to feature 3D technology, and the catch is, you won't have to wear glasses in order to get the 3D effects.
Immediately I began to wonder how that would work, but then thought about the way Nintendo may actually be interpreting 3D. I imagine that the picture on the screen won't 'jump' out out you, as you'd need glasses. Instead I imagined they would work the 3D into a long distance type of view, giving games depth.
Then I found this video on YouTube that pretty much displays exactly how I think the new 3D Nintendo DS will look. Click here to view.

All in all, it looks pretty gnarly even though the screen is so small. I do hope that they decide to work this sort of nifty looking 3D game play into a new Nintendo Wii console. It seems they have been paying way too much attention to their handhelds, while the console itself goes ignored.

At any rate, I'm really excited to hear what types of things Nintendo will have in store for us this summer at E3. Supposedly the 3D Nintendo DS will be revealed, and those who are interested will get a closer look at what this new hand-held will offer.
