Uxio, creo que te has equivocado al final de la noticia diciendo que el 3D no se mantendrá en la próxima generación de consolas, porque lo que dijo es que no se mantendría como novedad:
Is 3D on a handheld console something you’re happy to explore once, but then might not return to, or would you continue to pursue it going forward?
Well, first of all, let me state that seeing things in 3D is the normal state for human beings, it’s how we see our environment. But then when we watch 3D TV we’re told we have to put on 3D glasses to see it, which for people like me, who wear glasses, is sometimes too much.
I personally think that for TV, unless someone brings out technology where you have glasses-free very high quality TV, then there’s not a big market there. But, in terms of videogames, 3D has been a topic for a long time, I don’t know if you remember the Virtual Boy (laughs)?
So why did we introduce stereoscopic 3D into a handheld? Because there are a various circumstances on a handheld machine which make it possible. You have the screen and the console being one, normally you have almost constant distance between [the user] and the screen, so with the currently available technology it is possible to provide a high quality 3D experience without glasses.
So, now we’ve created the 3DS and 3DS XL and also have some games out there that are really using that 3D effect that we can see, from my point of view, that it’s an important element. But as human beings are this kind of surprise effect wears off quickly, and just have this 3D stereoscopic effect isn’t going to keep people excited.
But I think it’s an important element, it makes graphics more impactful, it proves a sense of immersion that 2D doesn’t have, so I would say generally that 3D is better than 2D. It’s nice to have good graphics but not necessarily on their own, so I don’t think we’ll present [3D graphics] as one of the key features of our consoles but will probably stick with 3D as one of the minor elements of our consoles in the future.
