Submission + - Nintendo Chief: Consumers Don't Understand 3DS Yet ( 1

gabbo529 writes: "Nintendo's latest financial results reveal that initial sales for the first ever 3D gaming system have been underwhelming at best. What's the reason? Nintendo chief executive Satoru Iwata says consumers have yet to fully understand the console's 3D capabilities, even when trying it out. Others think it might have something to do with the console's high price ($250) and the lack of big-name titles available (Mario and Zelda are not yet out)."

Nintendo Chief: Consumers Don't Understand 3DS Yet

  • Consumers "don't understand" stereoscopy (NOT "3D") for a century and a half, it seems. Again, and again... (NVM how even with gaming, 3DS is not the first stereoscopic system; not even from Nintento - 3rd from them)

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
