Nintendo 3DS announced at E3

It is finally here, and previous speculations are proven correct – Nintendo has announced the brand new 3DS handheld console that will bring 3D gaming to the masses, especially for those who are always on-the-go! Its 3.5″ display is located on the upper segment of the console, where it offers stereoscopic 3D sans the need for special glasses. There is also a 3D depth slider on the right side of the 3D display which you can adjust to suit your eyes, and we’re not sure whether the more “3D” things look, the faster your battery life is drained.

As with the DS, the bottom display will be touch-enabled only, but we figure out that things might change in the future – after all there is always room for improvement. A couple of cameras at the back of the Nintendo 3DS also enables you to capture and view photos in stereoscopic 3D, although don’t expect it to have the “wow” factor of a large 3D screen.

Not only can you enjoy 3D games, 3D movies are also part of the equation although no concrete plans for the playback of 3D movies have been announced yet. This is where an online store would come in handy, don’t you think?
