Nintendo has released it's 3DS system, a handheld machine that has 3D gaming without the goofy glasses.
Yes, it's $250, more than a Wii, XBox 360 or an iPod Touch. Still, new gaming hardware always starts with a higher premium price. It allows you to take 3D photos and videos, and is backwards compatible with most Nintendo DS titles. The resolution is 320 X 240 pixels on the lower screen and 800 X 240 on the top, and soon will be able to stream movies and TV shows from Netflix. One big negative: a 3.5 hour battery life, which cuts down on portability for now. There's already two winner titles for the system: LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars and Nintendogs + Cats.
