Warren Spector Really, Really Likes The 3DS
Like many E3 attendees, Epic Mickey designer Warren Spector had a chance to get his hands on the Nintendo 3DS...and he really liked it. In a post on his blog, Spector said "Nintendo got 3D right -- righter than anyone else. Ever. By far."
That's not the end of the praise. He continues:
"I was backstage at the Nintendo Press Conference on Tuesday, June 15th, and as each new 3DS feature was described, my jaw got closer and closer to the ground. It’s a game machine… it’s 3D… it has a gyroscope and accelerometer built in… It has Wi-Fi connectivity and shares data with other 3DS’s in the background… It has a 3D CAMERA!… and it PLAYS 3D MOVIES WITHOUT GLASSES!… I swear if they’d said it was a phone, too, I would have dashed back onto the stage and snatched the prototype and run like the wind! I half expected to hear it would tuck me in at night!"
Yep, Warren was so excited that he broke out the caps lock. For the sake of brevity, we'll let you check out the rest of the post for yourself, but he calls the 3D effect "basically perfect" and says that Nintendo "deserves to sell a gazillion of these things."
