Well it's looking like 3D isn't that necessary for the system after all. This could be a sign of something with the hardware, but just as easily might not.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

It's definitely got nothing to do with the hardware. Wasn't there already a 3DS game released with no 3D?



Thread title as well as the OP reads like broken English. You can do better than this.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

So this confirms by Nintendo what I already though, the 3D is a pointless feature.

Erm, no. It just means that 3D is optional, and they aren't forcing it on developers. It's the same way with the DS touchscreen.

Then that wouldn't completely nullify the 3DS's point. Its like all the people encouraging Kinect to get a controller

but at the same time im not surprise

Alot of developers gave up on motion control halfway through and a increase in allowing normal control format happened, I definitely see 3D not going past just shit popping out at you.

Yup, exactly like how motion controls on the Wii were a "pointless feature."

Alot of developers gave up on motion control halfway through and a increase in allowing normal control format happened, or touchscreen fuction on DS becoming limited to menu navigation. I definitely see 3D not going past just shit popping out at you.



I love my 3D feature.

"I think there could be a Nintendo 3DS software title which does not use the 3D feature at all, and I believe Nintendo will develop such software" Not forcing it on third parties is one thing, making a game yourself that doesn't use a display feature you put in the system yourself is another, the 3D obviously doesn't add anything to the game, this is just Nintendo sharing that view
