Reggie/Konno on 3D sans glasses as a viable product, 3DS as an 'entertainment device', no 3D for next console

“(Playing games in 3-D) is something that we’ve been continually testing and working on at Nintendo. We’ve never actually stopped looking at 3-D as a viable product. And it just so happens that the technology in the marketplace now coincides with what we wanted to do. So actually, it was just very fortuitous timing. When we launched Virtual Boy, we thought it would work. It’s trial and error. We made mistakes. And we build on mistakes.” - Hideki Konno

Konno on the 3D attachment for Cube…

“It would have required consumers to buy a special LCD screen to attach to the GameCube to actually play. We didn’t think it was worth that investment for consumers, so it never came out.” - Hideki Konno

“This is an entertainment device; make no mistake. It’s not purely a gaming device.” - Reggie Fils-Aime

“I think at Nintendo, we realize that any sort of goggle-type 3-D technology was not going to work,. In order to make 3-D technology viable with video games, we thought we needed to have glasses-free 3-D.” - Hideki Konno

“Glasses-free is a big deal. We’ve not said publicly what the next thing for us will be in the home console space, but based on what we’ve learned on 3-D, likely, that won’t be it.” - Reggie Fils-Aime
