    What about the specs? How fast is it? What console/other device is it comparable to in terms of processing power?


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    How powerful is this device? Is it same as Wii? PS2? and are the 3d same as the stereoscopic TVs, so you can have the exact feeling of 3d as in Gran Turismo 5 ?

    I got the details for you.


    It has 96MB of RAM usable for games, 128MB total.. So this implied a 32MB OS. At the very least we know it has 96MB.

    It's GPU is the Pica200 clocked at 166Mhz (I'll have to check on this to be sure). It has fixed shaders, and a few neat little pieces of tech packed into it that most last gen consoles lacked.

    Most disappointingly, it's CPU is an Arm11 dual core clocked at 266Mhz. This is paltry compared to most smartphone offerings out there.


    More or less you'll be seeing graphics that look better than Xbox 1 titles. But its CPU is considerably weaker by comparison.

    In summary:

    GPU: Pretty cool
    RAM: Stupidly low
    CPU: Weak

    Uses OpenGL ES 1.1 with custom extensions.. It also has some sort of special API called "Maestro" which can convert functions into "OpenGL 2.0 like" or something. In terms of raw output from the Pica200 GPU it should be, in most ways, superior to the Xbox Nvidia GPU. It also has 50% more RAM than the Xbox 1 so games with well over Halo 2 quality is feasible.

    A current generation iTouch demolishes the 3DS in every category except for battery life, arguably.

    Odds are also strong it will ship with a secondary ARM core to fuel its OS\bottom screen\provide security measures. Won't be usable for game devs.

    Thank you Vulgotha. A

    One of the first things you read is that the OP is a work in progress! Theres more to come yet and I hadn't forgot about the specs!

    I only get the time to work on it at night (GMT) so it will get some more added to it tonight!

    Edit:

    For the GB/GBC downloads, Nintendo needs to get with Wayforward and talk about getting the original Shantae up there. The DSiWare one is absolutely fantastic but so many people have yet to experience the original game.

    I was refreshing GameGears 3DS page for a while waiting for the pre-orders to open again at £194. I saw the "Pre-Order" button pop up, clicked it... but by the time I registered they had all gone Knew I should have registered earlier.

    Thanks DC89 - useful information here again - like the other thread you made.

    It is good to see Nintendo supporting the MP3 format for music files now....

    I am curious though - what internet browser are Nintendo using? Any guesses? Opera?

    3D Picture taking ability and video recording (the latter which Iwata alluded to) could end up being big USP's for the 3DS. As well as 3D augmented reality.

    I am also interested in these motion sensors. They could add a lot to the gaming element.

    It seems there are a lot of novel features in the 3DS and fun little things to do which the casual market will enjoy. I am just thinking of that one game that will tie a lot of these elements and features of the 3DS together....in particular StreetPass and SpotPass.

    I am curious as to how the eShop will develop as well - DSiWare and WiiWare were not exemplary services. I think Nintendo know they need to improve with regards to this aspect.

    You know, right now - due to price, and my lack of interest in portable gaming - the 3DS is a no.

    But if they ever announced earthbound 3D, Earthbound remake, or even earthbound released on the 3DS store.. i'd buy one just for it.

    I dont know why Nintendo wont re-release that amazing gem.

    Will old SNES titles be available like Secret of Mana etc? That would make this more attractive but then I'd also be able to play those on PSP2 eventually no doubt.
