Hi, are you glad for the Nintendo 3DS?
Well, this device has the potential to move the game industry far beyond. But, what is next?
Do you expect the next Nintendo home console by 2011-2013?
A recent japanese report show that Nintendo plans to transforrm the 3DS to a home console. What that means?
No new Nintendo home console anymore!!
The 3DS will be the ONLY (fully integrated) portable/home console from Nintendo in the next 5 years. They plan to launch some accessories that complement the 3DS, such a wireless HDMI/VGA connector to play your 3DS games on your HDTVs. Off course without the 3D effect until the stereoscopic HDTVs appear. Also a pointer device that allows using the Wiimote/nunchuck to play your 3DS games instead the 3DS controls.
This strategy is made to compete against Apple (the next fierce Nintendo competitor) iphone new strategy to play games, and some cellphone developers will follow this way like in these pics.
In addition, the 3DS will make an extensive use of 3G network for its online strategy.
