More Nintendo 3DS specs have been revealed

Nintendo 3DS

I have never been a fan of the 3D gaming idea and have no interest in playing games while wearing glasses that make me look like a half breed version of Clark Kent.

So when I heard that Nintendo were releasing a 3D version of their DS I outwardly scoffed at the idea, then they said we didn’t need to wear the dorky glasses and I became a lot more interested.

Thankfully I don’t need to make any solid opinions until I get my grubby paws on the thing at E3 but the new specs released do make it sound like Nintendo may just get this right.

  • Dual 4” Touch screens (slightly smaller than the DSi XL screens)
  • Dual Analogue sticks
  • Force Feedback
  • Motion Control
  • Faster Wireless
  • Better battery life

Now remember these are all rumoured specs but they do sound pretty good. I would also expect much better graphics capability in the handheld but hopefully they spend more time perfecting the controls than they do worrying about beating any pre-existing handheld device.

    So I cant find contact details for you guys and I found something weird in the new MGS: Peace Walker JPop music vid. http://kotaku.com/5500329/metal-gear-solid-peace-walker-goes-unexpectedly-pop

    I saw Otacon, I even took a screendump, which is pretty useless without the ability to post it here :whistle:

    This mildly suggests a timeline lapse in Peace Walker.
