For some reason, speculation about Nintendo’s killer feature for its next home console is still running rampant even though it’s fairly obvious it’s going to be holograms all the way. But Nintendo’s handheld push into 3D still has people wondering whether they’re planning the same sort of strategy for the living room.
“Glasses-free is a big deal. We’ve not said publicly what the next thing for us will be in the home console space, but based on what we’ve learned on 3D, likely, that won’t be it,” according to Nintendo’s Hideki Konno. The reason? “In order to make 3D technology viable with video games, we thought we needed to have glasses-free 3D,” he explained. Well, that and maybe making it usable for six-year olds and people with stereo-blindness. Also getting rid of the headaches and eye-strain. Like we said, holograms.
