Five Years of the Nintendo DS

According to unnamed developers cited by IGN, Nintendo's unreleased handheld 3D system, the Nintendo 3DS, is more powerful than the Wii, with "abilities" that are closer to the PS3 and 360.

Here's the quote:

"Several developers that have experienced 3DS in its current form have reported, off the record, that it has processing capabilities that far exceed the Nintendo Wii and bring the device with abilities that are close to HD consoles such as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360."

The Most Awkward Job At CES 2010 (Of Course, It Involves 3D)

There has been a ton of hype about 3D gaming over the last year or so, with many industry-insiders hyping it as the next wave of game immersion, but the problem is, other than attendees at gaming industry events, no one has really had a chance to try out 3D gaming. That's all going to change on June 10, when the first 3D PlayStation 3 games and first 3D Sony televisions are released in Japan.

For those not sated with our Killzone 3 first look and hands-on preview, perhaps you'd prefer to dig into these details from the gurus at Guerrilla Games? We sat down with Hermen Hulst, managing director, and Steven Terheide, senior producer, and made them give up the goods on their new shooter. Between jetpacks, 3D and more Killzone, we just got that much more excited.

Sony Officially Announces Killzone 3

The 3D debate roars on, especially with Sony's decision to move Killzone 3 into 3D. Predicting the Avatar of video games is nearly impossible, but if you were running the world and could pick one game to make the leap to 3D, what would it be? What game would move the 3D needle for you?

Nintendo DS Prototype Possibly Leaked, Suggets 3DS Is Going Widescreen

While details on Nintendo's glassless 3D handheld, tentatively dubbed the 3DS, remain murky, we're getting small glimpses into the company's plans. Wireless Goodness spotted an FCC filing from Nintendo (which has now, unsurprisingly, disappeared) showing the internal components of a mysterious handheld sporting a screen that'd be new to the world of DS: widescreen.

Nintendo Asks GDC 2010 Attendees To

When Nintendo revealed the first details on their next handheld, currently dubbed the Nintendo 3DS, it came at a pretty surprising moment, as it was just days before Nintendo launched another iteration of the DS in North America, the super-sized DSi XL. Gamers and analysts theorized the news could impact the sales of DSi XL (we even brought it up on Feedback), but Nintendo isn't so sure about that.

Remembering Nintendo's First Attempt (And Failure) At 3D Gaming: Virtual Boy

We're learning some interesting details about Nintendo's next handheld before its official unveiling at E3 next month. One, 3D isn't required and can be turned off. Two, 3DS is simply a tentative name that Nintendo assigned to the product since it was announced ahead of schedule. According to comments from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, translated by Andriasang, 3DS is not the final name.

The Most Awkward Job At CES 2010 (Of Course, It Involves 3D)

Nintendo hasn't shown off the hotly-debated Nintendo 3DS, the next iteration of the company's dual-screened handheld, which will apparently feature glasses-free 3D. Even though 3D will be a central selling point for the 3DS, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata told investors they won't require users to play 3DS games with 3D turned on, according to an Associated Press report (via Go Nintendo).

Here's how the AP phrased Iwata's comments:

Paul W.S. Anderson Interested In Shooting Another Mortal Kombat Movie

Look, video game movies get a bad rap, and in most cases, rightly so. But Mortal Kombat deserves none of that. The 1995 adaptation of the fighting series by then-newcomer Paul W.S. Anderson was cheesy, fun, over-the-top and surprisingly faithful to the series it was based on.

There have been various attempts to get a third Mortal Kombat movie off the ground, but it's never happened. When I met up with Anderson at the 3D Gaming Summit in Los Angeles, we mostly talked about 3D, but I had to ask him if there was a chance he'd return to Mortal Kombat.

"I love Mortal Kombat," he said. "I loved making the movie."

It's one thing to hear Hollywood and 3D technology manufacturers tell you "hey, the future is 3D, start dealing with it." It's quite another to hear it from the people in charge of the games you love to play. When I attended the 3D Gaming Summit in Los Angeles a few weeks back, I sat down with a number of gaming executives, developers and movie industry moguls about how the 3D popularized with Avatar can properly intersect with gaming. They also expressed some potential problems, too.

At the summit, I spoke with Zombie Studios CEO Mark Long (Blacklight), Gaikai CEO David Perry (Earthworm Jim), Arad Productions movie producer Ari Arad (Lost Planet), Capcom VP of marketing and strategic planning Christian Svensson, Rockstar San Diego senior game designer Kris Roberts (Midnight Club) and Epic Games VP Mark Rein. Each is approaching 3D from a different perspective.

You might not like all of his movies, but Paul W.S. Anderson directed Mortal Kombat, which makes him a hero in my book. So it was with pleasure that I sat down with the polarizing film director at the 3D Gaming Summit in Los Angeles last week to discuss the implementation of 3D into his next film, Resident Evil: Afterlife, whether studios are pushing 3D a little too hard on consumers, what he can do to encourage further adoption of 3D in the world and much more. Take a look at our chat, won't you?

Is 3D the future? At the 3D Gaming Summit in Los Angeles this week, there were plenty of people who believed so. NVIDIA, far and away the biggest supporter of consumer 3D on the PC, wants you to believe that, too. NVIDIA general manager of 3D Vision Phil Eisler was the first speaker at the 3D Gaming Summit, where he made the case for consumer 3D and its future.

The Most Awkward Job At CES 2010 (Of Course, It Involves 3D)

In addition to executives and game designers talking about the prospect of 3D video games at the 3D Gaming Summit in Los Angeles this week, there were also -- guess what -- 3D games.

Here's some quick, one-liner impressions of the games whose 3D-ness passed my eyes:

Age of Empires: Is it weird this one probably made the most significant impression on me? 2D games in 3D seem to do really well within the current applications of 3D technology. The depth-of-field effect worked exceptionally well for Age of Empires. I could see enjoying it at length.
