Nintendo silences the competition with a killer lineup

Nintendo's rise to the top in the latest round of console wars was nothing sort of shocking.  When the brand suffered through the Gamecube era, many people wrote the company off.  However, with the launch of the Wii and Nintendo DS, Nintendo flattened the competition in terms of profitability and console sales.

Now, at Nintendo's annual E3 keynote, the company has unveiled an upcoming lineup that's nothing short of stunning.  Leading the way is the Nintendo 3DS.  The 3DS reinvents the handheld.  Why has 3D TVs and gaming failed to catch on?  "It's the glasses, " complains Reggie Fils-Aime.



There are no glasses to be seen with the 3DS.  Gorgeous visuals for a handheld, falling between the PS2 and PS1 in quality (plus 3D added on top), greeted viewers of the keynote.  The top screen is 3.5-inch display, while a smaller bottom screen does touch input.  There's new sensors including a gyroscope and a side slider to adjust the depth of the 3D effect.  The unit supports Wi-Fi (according to Nintendo it communicates "without you evening know it") for internet-enabled gameplay.

Nintendo has assembled an arsenal of A-list launch titles and upcoming games.  Leading the way are Kingdom Hearts 3D, Resident Evil Revelations, Assassins creed, Metal Gear Solid.  And Nintendo is chipping in Kid Icarus 3D and Nintendogs 3D (which will also feature kittens!).

The handheld even comes with a 3D camera, which uses two lenses on the back of the unit.  That means that the device may even see use beyond the regular gaming workload.
