Nintendo to Sony: It’s on like Donkey Kong

July 28, 2011 | | 28 Comments

Nintendo have realized that the price they set for the 3DS along with the really “not there” launch lineup were huuuuuuuuuuge factors for the system not selling as much as was expected from the Nintendo DS successor (the best selling portable of all times). About 720,000 3DS units were sold from April to June 2011… worldwide. That is NOT great news for Nintendo investors (they’re sorta mad) and with the Vita from Sony picking up several extra stops on the hype train route AND being priced at a “boy will Sony lose money per unit”$249.99 launch price for the Wi-Fi only model … what can Nintendo do? How about bringing the price down from $250 into a more consumer friendly $169.99 and giving early consumers a GREAT “thank you” by offering them lots of free NES/GBA games for their 3DS instead of being a douche and saying “though luck” to early adopters?

Review: Stereoscopic 3D

December 7, 2010 | | 2 Comments

Stereo 3D + Games = Immersion

Stereo 3D gives the player natural two eye depth perception in the simulated 3D environment. In movies, this is great, but in interactive games it’s much more important. For example, in a racing game like Motorstorm, the core play mechanics involve dodging obstacles, maneuvering between vehicles, making jumps over hazards, etc… Judging distances in the 3D environment is a very fundamental part of those play mechanics and using your brain’s natural depth perception makes the game fundamentally more realistic and immersive. When experiencing this title in 3D for the first time, it felt like I could really see into the game; like I was looking into a miniature toy universe.

September 29, 2010 | | 12 Comments

Now with that out of the way,  let’s consider what the 3DS has to offer at launch and how Sony has decided to price and market their 3D interest in new technology.
