Nintendo made a deep splash at E3 last night with the 3DS, a 3D version of its portable system. The device doesn’t require any glasses to produce the illusion of 3D, and can turn the effect off if your eyes ever get tired. It can also play 3D movies and, maybe most impressive of all, take 3D pictures with its built-in camera, the New York Times reports. It also boasts an analogue stick (finally), and iPhone-esque motion controls. Wired is wowed, calling the roll-out stunning.
Sony is on the 3D bandwagon, too, but it’s focusing on producing games for 3D televisions. “This will be the year of 3D,” promised the president of Sony America, boasting that the PS3 would have 20 3D titles by March. Sony also unveiled its own movement control scheme—simply called Playstation Move—which uses both Wii-mote-esque controllers, and a camera that the company says will combine to accurately capture players' moves.
