The latest handheld gaming gadget is the Nintendo 3DS, which features a three-inch touchscreen and a 3.5 inch glasses-free 3D screen inside the cover. The 3D screen has a resolution of 800 x 240 pixels, which is quite high for a portable game device. New owners say that the 3D works surprisingly well when the screen is held at the right angle and the correct distance from the eyes.
The 3DS is compatible with Nintendo DS games, though more and more 3DS titles are becoming available. PCMag.com calls the 3DS “a solid first in a new generation of handheld game systems.”
