CES mop-up: Next-gen in 3D


We decided to see for ourselves what all the fuss over eMagin's 3DVisors was all about. After all, Nintendo has reportedly purchased a number of the units for review. It took us only moments to discover that Nintendo's interest in these 3DVisors must simply be nostalgia for the much-maligned Virtual Boy. And that's expensive nostalgia. If you want the motion-tracking capabilities of the Z800, it'll set you back $899. The X800, 3D visuals without motion-tracking, still carries a $799 price tag.

The real issue is that developers aren't building games specifically for these devices. If Nintendo does decide to explore 3D in the Revolution, then maybe that will change. Until then, next-gen is still best viewed in 2D.
