Nintendo 3DS to feature 3.4-inch Sharp parallax barrier display?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo 3DS to feature 3.4-inch Sharp parallax barrier display?

The main thing that makes me question these specs is that the screen resolution is (roughly) 8 times the resolution of the DS screen. The screen size is reasonable being that it is only somewhat larger than the DS screem (about a 10% increase in size in both dimensions, or a 20% increase in size in one dimension)

It is hard to tell what screen they will finally go with. I can however see them choosing a screen that will be "wide screen"



Albion - Its Fun as Ballz !!!!!

Im confused now i thought the 3DS was the joke?Is it real? EXPLAIN!

No, people calling it a joke, was the joke.

3DS is the successor to the DS. Like how the DS was the successor to the GBA, Wii successor to the GameCube etc...



LOL @ those who thought it was a joke... lol....

Anywho, can't wait for E3. This is going to be a great show.

The screen resolution seems to be roughly widescreen 480p.



I am hoping that the screen will display 720p or 1080p, I have also heard that you may be able to stream Netflix movies to the DS/3DS.

Yes, but if it is like the DS there will be two screens at this resolution and it has to support this resolution while rendering images in 3D; whether one screen or both screens have 3D capabilities. That will require a lot of processing power, especially when you consider that it is a handheld system. Personally, I wouldn't expect the resolution to be this high; and I would think that something in the 320x570 pixel range is more likely.
