Sony thinks little of 3DS

Sony’s E3 press conference had a lot of hype for their upcoming 3D implementation to the PS3 and its games by means of those funky glasses and an expensive TV. Sadly for them, Nintendo had their conference just a couple of hours earlier where they showed of the 3DS; a portable device capable of displaying 3D graphics without the need of specs. Kaz Hirai, ceo of Sony Computer Entertainment was asked to comment on the upstaging by Nintendo and its little box of wonders to Sankei Biz where he gave this statement: “Based off internally conducted research, naked-eye 3D for portables does not have high precision, and at present there are limitations.” He didn’t directly commented on the 3DS itself as he was yet to play with it but it does suggest that if and when the PSP2 is announced, 3D won’t be part of its credentials. While no one quite expected Hirai to praise a competing device, it sounds like a little bit of jealousy on Hirai’s part. The biggest hurdle for Sony to cross with its 3D is convincing people to upgrade their TVs, buy at least one pair of expensive glasses and, of course, get a PS3 if they haven’t already done so. Nintendo on the other hand just need to make us believe a 3DS is better than the existing DSs since 3D to them is a boast-worthy bonus. From the list of games coming and graphical capabilities of the 3DS, I think they’ve already succeeded.
