Playing DS on a 3DS is less than ideal

posted by adminadmin 2328 days, 14 hours, 27 minutes ago
Thursday, March 10, 2011 6:24:16 AM GMT
The Nintendo 3DS has a lot of cool features, one of which is backward compatibility with DS games. But while convenient, this backward compatibility is far from perfect. Because the screens on the 3DS have a higher resolution (400 x 240 on top, 320 x 240 on bottom, versus the DS's 256 x 192 screens) DS games are either upscaled to fit the bottom screen, or shown in tiny windows on both screens if you hold Start and Select while loading the game. In either case, it's not great. (more)

Lord of the Rings: War in the North celebrates the idea of fellowship, telling the story of a trio of adventurers (a human, elf and dwarf) as they participate in that titular northern war. (more)

Pachter expects 360 price cut at E3, PS3 and Wii to follow suit

Tuesday, March 08, 2011 9:50:26 AM GMT
Gaming industry analyst Michael Pachter has updated his predictions about the console price cuts he anticipates will occur this year. A Wedbush Securities update distributed this morning said, "We expect Microsoft to announce a price cut at this year's E3 Expo in June, and expect Sony and Nintendo to rapidly follow suit." Until then, Pachter expects that consoles sales will steadily decline, with the 3DS providing enough juice to bring things back into the positives in April. (more)
