Nintendo 3DS: Specs released, 3D analogue sticks – Your move Sony

By Updated on

Hold on to your seatbelts everyone, as the first little details regarding specifications for the just-announced Nintendo 3DS handheld have been released. 3D analogue sticks anyone?

No, we didn’t make that up. A report from VG247 has cited Japanese publication Nikkei as the source, who has also revealed some other major news about the 3DS.

Aside from 3D analogue sticks, it will have a slightly smaller four inch display screen than the current DSi XL (4.2-inch), but the report reveals that the screen will be a “parallex barrier LCD” – manufactured by Sharp.

Further specs include possible vibration support, improved battery life and ‘better’ WiFi transfers. I dont know about you, but I’m slightly excited now.

What on earth does 3D analogue sticks mean anyway? Forget the Sony PSP2, its all about the 3DS!

    It wasn't that too impressive, and it's a sad thing to say coming from a DSi owner. Nintendo 3Ds compiled updates

    Nintendo finally cought up in the hand held technology and slaps in a new feature for good measure just so it's different than the PSP, their specs are so close it's like comparing a PS3 and a 360, but the PSP wins most catagories spec wise but the interesting but most likely to be useless 3D technology.
