Sony Calls Nintendo 3DS An "Interesting Move," Questions Kids Enjoying 3D

PlayStation 3, PSP See Significant Hardware And Software Sales Drops

That didn't take long. Sony has already spoken with the press about Nintendo's surprise 3DS announcement from yesterday afternoon, where the company issued very few details about an upcoming, 3D-enhanced handheld. The catch? Nintendo's 3D handheld won't require 3D glasses.

"I think it remains to be seen where Nintendo goes with 3D on a portable," said Sony's director of hardware and marketing John Koller to IGN. "Having been in the portable space for quite awhile, I think it's an interesting move but one I'd like to see where they go from a demographic standpoint."

Koller said Sony's focus is bringing 3D to the console experience on PlayStation 3, not PSP, and questioned whether the younger set of consumers would be interested in the addition of 3D.

"8 and 9 year-olds playing 3D is a little bit of a stretch given where some of our research is right now," said Koller.

If Nintendo manages to make 3D look like magic, however, that doesn't seem a stretch at all.
