Heh -that'd be the perfect game for it. Or some sort of space sim.

Was from some 2yr old article

It could be the way we will be watching our TV programmes and PC games in the near future. Toshiba has developed a giant full-faced helmet that weighs around three kilo and facilitates the wearer to see a full 360-degree view on a 40 cm dome-shaped fish-eye screen. The idea of full “360-degree viewing is fabulous but does anyone think it’s really fabulous with that gigantic 3 kg helmet on your head? It could have been a ground-breaking gizmo if they had made it a bit smaller ?

Ravenprose said:

PS3 + Move will succeed due to better visual experiences than Wii, less embarrassment

I fully enjoyed Ping Pong with the Wii MotionPlus, but there was an additional element of excitement playing nearly the same game on the PlayStation Move. The PS3 version removed the Miis and had richer graphics, and it just felt more mature; it felt like something I wouldn’t be embarrassed playing when my friends come over, which is why my favorite feature of the PlayStation Move has nothing to do with the peripheral itself.

GAF guy on Red Steel 2
The editor in chief for the site I write for just put up his review(in Dutch) rated it a 94/100. He praised the near perfect controls, great visuals and sound. He completed the game and all the optional challenges in 11 hours on the hardest setting and that was the biggest downside.

3D DS system confirmed. Right now everyone should be checking out the GAF thread. 



1) Two screens, with virtually no seam between them when open
2) Screens are larger and higher resolution, but exact resolution is unknown
3) Powered by nVidia Tegra
4) Roughly as powerful as a Gamecube, and apparently similar to program for
5) Uses carts - believed to be same physical size as DS/DSi carts, only with different guts
6) Due out in 2010 in at least one territory
7) Accelerometer for motion control

This 3DS sounds very cool and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in action. I'm mostly interested in seeing how good the games will look on the more powerful hardware but the 3D effects could be quite neat.

3DS eh? Cool. Probably using multiple layer LCD screens. Buy PureDepth stock folks (or maybe not, there are those autostereoscopic 3D televisions as well to consider, but I have no idea who invented those to buy their stock). They're kinda revealing it way too early though, Sony could easily rush and implement a similar tech in their own handheld now, if they weren't going to do that already of course. This is so damn cool, it's a shame they can't offer you a new TV free with their next home system, heh. It may be a year from now (or less) but for many people, when they go to the store to check out the new DS, it will be the first time they see 3D. Or at least the first time they see it on a device they can take home without shelling out $1000 for a new 3D enabled HDTV or whatever. It's going to be MASSIVE me thinks. Please offer a dual analog setup Nintendo, or at least dual 8-directional d-pad or something. I want Monster Hunter to be possible on your next handheld! In 3D! Please please please please.

The one thing that worries me, if this is gamecube tech made more cost efficient, this is nintendo we are talking about.... 

Are we going to see new play control GC games, New 3D view? 

There have been rumours for years about nintendo trying to get its GC tech down to portable size, the funny thing is that GC discs are mini-tiny UMD sized things. If they somehow allow backwards compatibility with cube discs, that would be amazing to me.

Wow, I just read a comment about 3D DS that blows my mind. In Phoenix Wright the accusatory finger could be poking out of the screen at me. LOL

Also remember that they patented a force feedback stylus. 

This has got me interested in E3 and Wii. 

If they've been tinkering around with DSi head tracking and now a 3D handheld, will we finally get to play head tracking wii games like this?

I'm sure the tech is cost efficient by now since it was cost efficient when the Wii came out. The format for the 3DS is the same as DS with the little carts so no GC disc bc for 3DS which I think is good since even the small GC discs would be too big and clumsy for a handheld plus it means more stable hardware.

From 1Up.Com's --A-- Review:

"More importantly, though, Cave Story is a truly great game. It was crafted as a labor of love, a fond romp through a bygone age of the medium. Its precise balance of playability, challenge, story, and depth have served as an inspiration to a generation of indie developers who can look to Pixel's work as proof that a small team really can create a game capable of standing up to cIassics like Super Metroid. I know gamers aren't especially known for their generosity and altruism (the success of the Child's Play charity venture aside), but the prospect of Amaya finally earning a little something for the hard work he invested in this masterpiece strikes me as satisfyingly poetic.

What makes Cave Story worthy of such adulation? It's all well and good to talk about its greatness or its heart or whatever, but beneath all the hyperbole it's simply a beautifully crafted action game. It's not quite as non-linear as your average Metroid, but there's an element of adventure to the way the story unfolds and you're forced to seek out items and conversations to advance to new areas. This free-roaming element hides a number of very different endings, a multitude of secrets, and what may be the single most challenging bonus stage ever seen in a videogame. You have to make tradeoffs -- for example, do you take this amazing weapon, or do you instead pursue that alternate outcome? -- and overcome a number of nail-bitingly tough battles in order to see the quest through to its conclusion. It's a game that tests your reflexes and engages your mind, all while laying out a simple but intriguing story.

In short, Cave Story feels like the most amazing console game from the year 1990; that it's only now coming to console 20 years later shouldn't be held against it. On the contrary, Pixel's indie cIassic feels right at home amidst a screen full of Virtual Console channels. It's a must-play masterpiece for anyone who like cIassic action games -- or any kind of action game, really. The only real question is which will amaze you more: That this is the work of a single man, or that they actually do make 'em like this anymore."
