Nintendo unveils 3DS handheld console
Games consoles are getting as weird as I'd hoped when I was younger. As much as I love(d) Jet Set Willy, the thrill of seeing the (then) ultra realistic graphics of Pitfighter thrilled me to the marrow. I imagined a future filled with games with ace graphics and mad hologram headsets.
Consoles went even weirder with the EyeCam, which in turn, paved the way for motion sensitive controllers. Much better than the shitty bazuka Menacer for the Mega Drive which seemingly fired shots at the TV next door regardless of where you aimed the blasted thing.
And so, to the latest insane development.
As previously reported, Nintendo have a 3D console coming out, which they unveiled in Vegas... and it looks really bloody good. It is called the 3DS and has the familiar Game & Watch-esque screens... however, these rascally pair can display 3D images that can be seen without using special glasses.
Better news is that they're not going to dangle a carrot at us for years, preferring to get the thing on the market in late 2010 (aka Just In Time For Christmas), according to the Beeb.
Nintendo said several 3DS titles were in development including DJ Hero 3D, Saints Row: Drive-By, Resident Evil Revelations, Batman, Assassin's Creed Lost Legacy, Metal Gear Solid and apparently, a new version of Starfox.
This looks immense!
Have a look at some bozos fiddling around with it and not paying any attention to the attractive women shoving their busters in their faces.
