As everyone knows Nintendo are notoriously secretive about any new console that it is developing and leave the finer details till the latest possible time. Now when we look at the Nintendo 3DS we are wondering what the possibilities of video calling is?
Can you imagine having video calling on a handheld gaming device like that? It would be pretty innovative and would give Nintendo a new lease of “Coolness”. Nintendo are dominating the handheld market with their current DS models but with new releases consumers expect new features.
If you think of the iPhone 4 and how it has Facetime, that is a pretty cool feature. The thing that the new DS would need though is a front facing camera with the capabilities. This could be a real opportunity to offer more than just a handheld console.
Of course there are only rumors of the specs of this dinky device but we do know that it will have 3D gaming without the glasses which in itself is a cool feature. Please be assured that this is a rumor at present but if anything like this does get confirmed then we will be reporting on it.
