Some interesting news to report now, as it has been revealed that the graphics engine for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS handheld will feature similar visuals currently seen in the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles.
According to this report from VG247, an article over at IGN reveals some off the record discussions with a few developers for the upcoming console, and they have claimed that the graphics on the 3DS will ‘far exceed’ those seen on the Nintendo Wii.
Here is a portion from IGN’s article: “Several developers that have experienced 3DS in its current form have reported, off the record, that it has processing capabilities that far exceed the Nintendo Wii and bring the device with abilities that are close to HD consoles such as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.”
While the 3DS will obviously be a huge step up from the Nintendo DS, I can’t see this touching the PS3 and Xbox 360. Almost the same graphics as MGS4, FFXIII or Alan Wake? – I doubt it.
Give us your reaction to this. Could the Nintendo 3DS really surprise us all? I guess E3 will have the answers to everything.
