They say don’t put all your eggs in one basket, yet Nintendo still did with the Nintendo 3DS and it appeared to have failed them. Nintendo has since pulled back from the 3D craze and are now saying that the next DS will not have a 3D feature, nor will the next Wii.
Here is what one of Nintendo 3DS hardware producers(Hideki Konno) had to say about it to CNN.
I think at Nintendo, we realize that any sort of goggle-type 3D technology was not going to work. In order to make 3D technology viable with video games, we thought we needed to have glasses-free 3D.
How do you feel about Nintendo backing away from 3D so quickly? I am sort of glad to see that they realize that it is more of an issue than a cool feature to have. I doubt that it will sell as well as Nintendo’s past console have.
