Nintendo jumps for 3D Console

( – In an interview with Japan’s Nikkei, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has hinted that the company’s next home console may, like the freshly-unveiled 3DS, go 3D.

“If you display a 3D image, the image quality becomes extremely bad, so we’d probably do it with the next system”, he said. “We’re thinking that the timing should be once the 3D television adoption rates crosses the 30% mark. We’re looking at the adoption trends.”

This is a curious comment, as it seems to go against everything Nintendo has stood for over the past decade. The company lagged behind on disc-based media despite “adoption trends”. It has twice passed on true surround sound. It even said “no thank you” to the high definition generation with the lo-fi Wii.
