3D Movies Are Coming to the 3DS

Posted Wed Jun 16, 2010 at 11:35 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Nintendo's new handheld will give you glasses-free 3D movies.

Do you like the idea of glasses-free 3D? How about a portable 3D device? How about both?

That's what Nintendo's bringing to the table. We don't know when or how much it will cost, but the 3DS is on the way. It's a 3D capable handheld system in the style of the Nintendo DS and it's incredibly cool. You can switch the 3D on and off, or adjust the depth, and of course, you won't need to wear glasses.

But what makes the 3DS announcement even more exciting is that Nintendo also mentioned that 3D movies would be on the way.

Again, there's no word on a price point for the movies, release dates or even potential titles. The practicality of the 3DS as a movie watching device really could go either way depending on all of that. But if you're looking to get into 3D, the 3DS will definitely be the cheapest way to go.
