Nintendo returns to 3D gaming



The 3DS

By now, you will have read most details about the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo's return to 3D gaming after the failed Virtual Boy.

Since I am late to the party, reporting about this, I will concentrate on a few interesting details and aspects that have not been widely reported. First of all, the technology used is called a parallax barrier and will likely be provided by Sharp. You will find a pretty good description of this over on The Register.

Parallax barrier

I have used this tech before, in the form of a third party screen available for the iPhone. The results were very disappointing. However, a German exhibitor at this years's Game Developers Conference, which I attended, showed such a screen for a big monitor and the 3D visuals were pretty amazing. The only drawback was that you had to find a good position to perceive the effect from and stay put. In discussions over the last few days - including Nintendo employees - everyone agreed that Nintendo would only bring technology to market if it was perfected.

My chat with Miyamoto

Now, onto the timing. Some analysts suspect that Nintendo issued the news to prevent a news leak. Ironically, only days before the reveal, I was among a few lucky journalists who were able to interview Shigeru Miyamoto in London, ahead of his BAFTA award. And regarding a Wii successor, I asked him how Nintendo would try to innovate again, after being copied by both competitors. I suggested that 3D technology was the only route available. His answer was that while he could not talk about a Wii successor, I should wait for E3.

In fact, Miyamoto hyped E3 so much, that the official 3DS unveiling will most likely not be the main news at their press conference. There are a number of reasons. Of course, the timing and form of Nintendo's 3DS announcement appeared rushed. There are no images accompanying the news and the timing could cannibalise the launch of the DSi XL. But while most Nintendo employees I talk to were totally surprised about the hardware as well as the announcement, key people in all major territories knew that new hardware was coming. They may have been surprised at the 3D aspect. But they had been given advance warnings of such a revelation. In fact, a few have claimed that we can expect more. This must be why Nintendo blew the lid on the 3DS early. Because they will announce something far bigger at E3.

PlayStation Move update

Finally, just a quick note on PlayStation Move. My dear colleague Valentina posted a link on her blog (German) to the latest Engadget Show. In it (43:45 into the show), a number of videos illustrate the origin of PlayStation Move technology.

You may remember me writing about playing with early PlayStation Movbe tech back at the ECTS 2001. What you see in the video, labeled as 2004, is precisely what they publically showed three years prior to that. Lord knows why they do not give the correct date.

well I personally think it's rather unlikely that Nintendo will reveal a successor to Wii with so many yet undisclosed titles like Zelda, Pikmin and Retros' still in the pipeline and considering the 3ds anouncement which is pretty big news in itself.

So I guess I'd be very surprised not to say "shocked" if there was even bigger anouncements at E3 this year.


Offtopic:

This might be the best the best year for hardcore gamers since the NES days. There's a lot of great stuff on the horizon and I have to say Team Ninja seem to have nailed it with other m.

The new metroid gameplay trailer looks breathtaking visually. If only more Wii titles would sport similiarly high production values as OtherM. I hope they'll do more projects together in the future.

As far as Conduit 2 is concerned judging by the Nintendo Power scans they seem to have addressed the art direction finally. But its' fall launch date still has me a bit worried.

Andy Witmyer said...

First of all, this is a huge comment. I apologize for writing so much, but I simply have a lot to say in regards to the 3DS and what it means to the industry. Seeing as how your blog is devoted to reasoned speculation, I figured this might be a good place to start. (This is so much, in fact, I'm gonna have to break this up into two comments!)

First off I just to say that I, for one, am VERY excited about the 3DS - I think anyone out there pooh-poohing the idea of it, that it's somehow going to be Nintendo's next "Virtual Boy" are being, IMO, incredibly ignorant. The Virtual Boy failed for so many different reasons - so many that I'm not even going to both to list any of them - but honestly, none of these failures appear to manifest in the 3DS hardware, at all, period.

Also, I believe that this will end being the very first widescale, domestic distribution of 3D - not just glasses-less 3d, but 3D period.

The 3dHDTVs that are coming out (while interesting) will be much too expensive for most people to own - and nearly all of them require glasses (a turn off for most). While the newest 3D TVs can cost well over $3,000 the 3DS, on the other hand, will likely be released at a price under $200. Unlike TVs which may or may not have 3D compatible content being pumped into it, the 3DS will be a platform for 3D right from the start. James Cameron's Avatar was the first (and maybe only) movie to have pushed 3D in a movie in a compelling way - I think whatever Nintendo releases on it at launch as their first party games, they're going to basically set out to blow people away. Nintendo may do more to spread the glory of 3D than any company outside of Hollywood. This may transcend more than games.

And mark my word - I predict that Nintendo will strike a deal with, let's say Netflix, as well as certain Hollywood studios, to allow 3DS users to stream 3D movies straight to their handheld. These movies would be formatted to make a strong use of the Parallax Screen 3D elements. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. As this current generation steps ever closer to its twilight years, I'm not convinced that Nintendo is all that concerned with Sony or Microsoft - they probably won't admit this publicly, but I do believe that they're viewing Apple as a legitimate threat, especially to their two decade strange hold on the handheld market. No doubt the 3DS will end up being a primarily gaming handheld, but I think Nintendo's going to really step up a lot of its other features - uo to and including the aforementioned availability of 3D movies (this alone is something that could set them apart from Apple). I think a larger hard drive will be in order - and a broader touchscreen. I think the size will strike a balance between the DSi and DSi XL - not too large, not too small, just right.

And lastly, I think the 3DS will be a sort of testing ground for the kind of system interface that we're going to end up seeing on the Wii 2. Like the original Wii, the 3DS will incorporate a channel-based interface - however, I think some of the channels that we're going to see on it will be somewhat experimental in nature. As for the nature of these channels, I'd have to assume that Nintendo would be trying to take the 3DS to the next level of domestication - I think it may try to expand into non-gamer areas.

Andy Witmyer said...

(continued) And here are some of the 3DS channels / Apps that I could see Nintendo releasing on or shortly after launch:

1) a Kindle type book service (initially this will offer up books in public domain, but new book releases will be added within 6 months from launch).

2. I could also see a legitimate e-mailing/messaging hub, a much improved web browser, and possibly even a GPS type channel to get directions on the road. Like the DSi, the 3DS will also have two cameras - this time of a much higher quality and also capable of recording video. Look for basic, user-friendly but fun video editing software being built in - stuff your grandma could even use, but still fun.

3. The downloadable games will be markedly easier to find and purchase, and with (presumably) a larger hard drive, the size limit on these games will be expanded, leading to the potential of a greater quality of visuals and sounds in these types of games. ALSO: Warioware DIY is a hint of what's coming - expect to see a Mario Paint type first party downloable app to create drawings, music an animation and maybe even minigames, right from your DS. From there they can be posted on a Nintendo server for distribution.

4. With the success of Wii Fit on the Wii, look for a channel being dedicated solely to exercise and improve your health. A pedometer will be built in, and the touchscreen itself will be sensitive enough to accurately read your heart rate by placing your finger upon it. Like Brainage being built right into the DSi, I think this component will be free right from the start.

5. also really and truly believe that Nintendo is going to make the 3dS accessible to the hardcore and as well as the casual. While the DS systems have made some steps at including a larger market of gamers, I'd still argue that the Wii has done an overall better job of this. I expect that the 3DS will be catered not only to the hardcore, but also to adults and even older people. Because of this, I'd expect Nintendo to possibly release channels that might be useful for the older more economically responsible demographic: tax and budgeting software, a virtual "wallet", an expanded virtual calender that can be written on just like a real calender, a dedicated scientific calender, etc etc. Some of this stuff might sound like a stretch, but when you think about Nintendo's blue market strategy, is it really that hard to picture someone downloading books, watching 3d movies, checking your heart rate, AND filling out a budget all on the same system? Maybe not all of this will come to pass, but mark my words - the 3DS will be doing some of that stuff and probably a lot of stuff I didn't think of.

Just imagine how much Oprah will be gushing about this! That kind of reaction is exactly what Nintendo wants and if its serious about getting it, they're going to have to make the 3DS more than just a gaming system. Its gotta be something everyone can use in their daily life - I think Nintendo knows this and you're going to see just that!

Will the 3Ds have 3D-Miis on it? I'd stake my life on it.

P.S. - What are your thoughts on this Fal? You have any ideas or expectations?

P.P.S. - About the name: like the "Revolution" name that came before the Wii, I don't think the 3DS will stick in the final product - it doesn't sound casual-friendly. While us nerds might like it, it doesn't sound very inclusive to grandma now does it?)

this blog is what reasoned speculation!!!!! YEAH RIGHT ITS A SITE RAN BY A GUY WHO GOT CONVERTED FOR HARD CASH MONEY

TO TALK SONY BS

3ds is agian disruptive and 3ds offers 3d and other forward movements in gaming and possibly media all in one unit

this will decimate sonys expensive tv plus expensive glasses 3d bullshit

its 3d in ur hand no glasses plus touchscreen high power and obviously some feedback innovations

it will also decimate the psp after all its already a obsolete design

i just cannot see any need for wii 2

why not \a simple add on that both 3ds and wii can connect too

it could come with its own wii 2 controls and be fully compatible with wii 1 controls

it could act as docking unit for 3ds and a connect unit for wii

turning your 3ds into a hd tv 3d ready home console and wii 1 can be used thru same remote and switched to at the press of a button

i.e wii shall become a 3ds channel

constant console wars is over sony got shafted in the ass big time

but wii2 its self could be innovative sooo we never know really

There's nothing wrong with talking about the 3DS, i was directing my comment towards the lunatic who always talks about sony and their conspiracy theories.

I own a psp and a DS, the DS is the better of the two but the psp is a great handheld as well. The anonymous poster who is always hating on sony is not a gamer, just a nintendo fanboy.

R4i said...

I first read about the 3DS on the NDS-Gear blog but I'm excited that Nintendo's returning to the methods it used to stun the world with the Wii.

The Wii was a 'unique and new' way of playing traditional console games, and I suspect the 3DS will also achieve the same. Having to tilt the console to solve puzzles in games etc. brings in a new dimension we haven't seen before - and for that reason, however good it is, it's a massive step forward.

" the dualshock is the most horrid to use control in existence sonys analog sticks are a insult to gamers thumbs "

>>> So true !!! furthermore the worst thing is that the same morons continue playing for FIFTEEN YEARS (a scandal regarding innovation) with the same crap and think this is the best ergonomic controler, what a joke ! this is clearly for 2D game ! just factis sticks completly bad-placed with non accurate controls for 3D.

" HOW MANY ACTUALLY BELIEVED PS2 WAS THE MOST POWERFUL LAST GEN PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVED THAT SHIT WEN IN FACT IT WASNT ANY MORE POWER THAN DREAMCAST "

>>>> I totaly AGREE with that ! the gamecube was much more powerfull with the best graphics (inexistant aliasing compared to the ps2)last gen, even if xbox 1 was supposed to be upper...

" YOU SERIOUSLY DO NOT GET GAMING AT ALL "

>>> Oh yes ! how is it possible to get a great gameplay with the dualshock...never seen one.
You see always the same boring games.
Sony sheeps are only focalised on graphics and claim they're hardcore, yeah hardcore with a dual shock...

Franckly SONY is useless in gaming, I just hope they'll disapear one day from videogame industry. Why am I so flinty ? they just never innovated from 1995 and their best skill is copying !

Funny how someone posts about the dualshock being worthless, the new classic controller for the wii is basically the same thing as a dual shock. If motion controls are so awesome then why did nintendo revamp a "CLASSIC CONTROL" scheme for monster hunter 3. Hypocrisy much?

Also, as for the ps3 overheating comment. I have all 3 current gen consoles. The ps3 & wii I can literally leave on for weeks at a time, I have. The 360, that POS will break if you look at it wrong. The ps3 is not an unreliable system. The hardware in it is great.

Sony is not an evil company like some people here make them out to be. If you took off your fanboy glasses you would notice some great games that are on the ps3 & 360. I find it funny how some people here call sony fans "sheep" but what has nintendo done this gen? All their big name titles are the same games we've been seeing each generation. If your so stupid to think that the 360 & ps3 have absolutely nothing to offer you might as well stop playing games.

Call me a fanboy all you want but I bought a wii on launch day and I owned it for 2 years before I went out and bought a ps3. All being a fanboy does is keep you from playing great games.

Clearly, the classic controller is for 2D !!! you use the cross for your old games...I have a gamecube one for 3D :)
Regarding the " PRO controller " it comes from capcom, they advice (in a real bad way for me because the sticks are placed like a dualshock !) )nintendo for it ! Iwata told it they ask capcom to help them for the controller. It a huge mistake...when you see the result.

" I find it funny how some people here call sony fans "sheep" but what has nintendo done this gen? "

Yes sheeps ! who pay another expensive hardware to play the same games with the same dualshock for FIFTEEN YEARS ! this is a fuss.
Nintendo always change his controller from each console so as to try to improve gameplay ! this is the key...which implies INNOVATION. And the day when SONY will be able to create the same richness gameplay of metroid prime trilogy with the move, just call me...furthermore I admit that nintendo are boring because of the casual way but there are great things on the system, surely rare but quite good...

" If your so stupid to think that the 360 & ps3 have absolutely nothing to offer you might as well stop playing games. "

Hey dude I have a 360 with a lot of games, and yes the 360 has to offer something, a real 3D accurate controller with a fair price and great gameplays ! overall if I add the fact there are a lot of " inferiors " visuals on common games between both, why buy a ps3 ? for bluray ? so funny.

I wanna repeat to SONY SHEEPS that you're paying (the highest price) and playing for FIFTEEN YEARS with the same bullshit factis huge analog stick who reverse your left thumb ! completly useless for 3D...and for you it's something normal...because you don't care about comfort and accuracy.
You've played 3D games during years with only a cross with the first playstation, what has changed actually with ps3 ? graphics (with inferiors versions compared to 360) and blu ray. Now you will get ps move, WOW this is huge innovation, another time taken from nintendo...
What a shame ! I just wish SONY will fall soonest. This firm deserve clearly nothing and this is my point of view.

you people missed my point, I wasn't stating that nintendo copied the dual shock, i'm saying that if the dual shock is worthless to you, then why is the classic controller pro so good? They are basically the same thing, regardless of who copied who. That's not important. What's important is the fact that you nintendo fanboys can never seem to make up your mind on controls...

"Motion controls are the best!! Dual analog isn't accurate.."

fast forward 6 months...

"OMG the classic controller pro is awesome!!"

There's no need for all the sony hate. Some people prefer to game on a sony system, some prefer the 360 and some prefer the wii. Why does it matter? Plus, all the hate for sony is unfounded and frankly, you guys come off as lunatics. There is no grand conspiracy with sony. Let's remember now too that nintendo is the one who helped sony create the playstation brand only to work them over before the contract was finalized. Nintendo helped create this beast some of you hate so much. Bottom line though, get over it and grow up. It's videogames, you shouldn't take it so seriously. You act as if sony has stolen your first born child.

So this is the same shit as dualshock because the cross is upper than the analog left stick. Fuck capcom for that because if it was only the choice of nintendo we should have get something near a gamecube pad !
The best ones for 3D are clearly those pads : dreamcast, xbox 360 and gamecube.
However the dualshock is good but only for 2D games to me.

"Motion controls are the best!! Dual analog isn't accurate.."

>>>> No !!! motion controls give a real plus of imersion sometimes, above all when it's well integrated in gameplays. The dualshock sticks are for sure non accurate, uncomfortable and too big.

" Why does it matter? Plus, all the hate for sony is unfounded and frankly, you guys come off as lunatics. There is no grand conspiracy with sony. "

>>> Unfounded ???
They are a quite pretentious company who clearly has nothing new to bring to the industry without copying, they're always late and off and only focused on graphic improvements on expensive systems without proposing the minimum :
a good controler !


And When I think about all those morons who plays fps on ps3 I only have one word : pathetic

Bottom line though, get over it and grow up. It's videogames, you shouldn't take it so seriously. You act as if sony has stolen your first born child.

rofl! u obviously don't understand gamers...to most all this is more important than their first born child rofl.

anyone watch the trailer for little big planet 2?

For all those nintendo fanboys who say that sony has nothing to offer gaming and that sony doesn't lead but only follows, well watch the trailer and then proceed to put your foot in your mouth.

And before you say that this is Media Molecule and not sony, i'd like to point out that media molecule is a 1st party developer for sony, so sony is infact giving the greenlight on this and funding it. Oh well though, the fanboys here will miss out on one of the most mind blowing games ever because it's on a sony playform.

Just watch what community games are made this LBP2, the first game had so many ingenious levels, I can only imagine what the community will do this time around. I cannot wait for winter!!

nintendo helped create the playstation brand, nintendo could have saved their suffering during the last 2 gens if yamauchi wasn't so arrogant.

You can go on about the good sales of wii etc but I can barely find a game anymore on it that I would like to play. It's sad.

I'd prefer to play the kind of games I like on nintendo thats for sure but most of the games arent even worth pirating even.

Nintendo will stick to what is working. Families with kids you just like playing together. Everybody has a Wii. Even people who didn't want one. My mother and father has a Wii. They're 66 years old. There are three DS's in my house.

Are there any other speculation blogs in a similar vein as this one? I miss the wii speculation days, but I think Fal is just too busy now...

3d games is very new to me but I will try this.. sometimes its good to try something new.

Cattlemans Steak said...

It really does look like the future is 3D , what with the price of the TVs dropping down, and every console maker concentrating on the new grip of 3D Technology....

I am slighly concerned though, is it too early to be firing all resources into the 3D thing.. didnt we try this before in the 80's (Jaws3d + glasses).... Only a thought from the older guy...

for my 3d gaming do i spend on sony tv and console and move

or buy a 3ds with it all built in and no stupid goggles

Buyers Agents said...

How property buyers agents saves you time and money?

Unlike a selling agent, property buyers agents act exclusively and independently for a property buyer. A Buyers agent will give you the best advice on how and where to buy a property that will suit your requirements. And if you are unsure of what to look for or simply don’t have the time, buyers agents will inspect and short list suitable properties for you. A buyers agent is able to look for property in a wide range of locations from various different sources, unlike a selling agent who works in a specific area. They will also negotiate the best purchase price for you and ensure that the process of selecting and purchasing a property right through until settlement is a smooth and hassle free experience.

With offices in Sydney and Brisbane, Prosper Group are the Australian property buyers agents of choice for busy professionals. If you are considering buying a home or an investment property and need advice or require assistance with finding and negotiating the right property; call Prosper Group and speak with one of our qualified property buyers agent on 1300 664 373 or email us on enquiries@prospergroup.com.au
