Looks like 'virtual reality thing' might be on the right track (and I though Nintendo was beyond stupid mistakes?). Of course it could still be something extremely different.
does anyone here have a computer?

Good!  I was hoping someone would find a new way to play games without having to goto the arcade.  At the arcade I always played that Boxing one were you hold the gloves, actually punch and have to move and stuff.  It is tight.

Mabye just a pair of glasses with RF capability so they can talk to GBA2/GC2 and show stuff on the screen? And a controller thats also RF. Would be cool if there were games specificly for it, and it used the processing power from all avalible thigies around. Like this:

rcx is playing "This and That" on glasses with GBA2 in pocket
rcx walks into a room with a GC2, and the game's res is automaticly upped
rcx walks out, and the game's res is downed
rcx is in range of someone else playing GBA2, and its spare power is used to make the res slightly higher

Hmm...the Gamecube Microphone Box. :laugh:

Of course, it lets you move your MOUTH in ways never seen before...you utter the word "Die", and your opponent loses immediately. :dpwink:

A VR system will be good.. a real one.. but somehow I doubt Nintendo have the market for it.. it'd be costly to create AND to purchase.

Sorry for the double-post, but Nintendo has just released news what this "third pillar" is!  Say hello to the Nintendo DS!

Nintendo Announces Dual-Screened Portable Game System

Quote
High-Tech Writers / Business Editors E3Expo 2004 REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 20, 2004

Nintendo DS features two separate 3-inch TFT LCD display panels, separate processors, and semiconductor memory of up to 1 Gigabit. It's scheduled to launch worldwide before the end of 2004.

From information made available today, players can look forward to being able to manage their game progress from two different perspectives, enhancing both the speed and strategy of the challenge. For example in a soccer game, users can view the whole game on one screen while simultaneously focusing on an individual soccer player's tackle or goal on the other screen.

Players will no longer be forced to interrupt game play to shift perspective, such as moving from a wide shot to a close up, or alternating between a character's ongoing battle and a map of the environment. Nintendo DS makes it possible to perform the tasks in real time by simply glancing from one screen to the other.

Maybe it will allow for two different images screened on different sides of the TV, allowing for true 3D. This has not been done before, but I don't know why.

It's a portable system.  It won't be hooked up to a TV

Very good. This should help solve the "I can't move the camera!" problems in 3D games.

No no no, you people are too optimistic ;)


I think this is a load of utter crap. How is this supposed to coexist with the successors to the GC AND the GBA? According to NIntendo, this is NOT the successor to the GBA. If they're going to have yet ANOTHER handheld after this, then Nintendo will be competing with itself, which is bad for both consumers and Nintendo itself.

And where are the pictures? If they don't have stuff to show us and convince us Nintendo hasn't lost it's collective minds, they shouldn't have revealed anything.

How is this suppsoed to allow "fun and movement never seen before", like Iwata said it would?

This has left me confused, dissapointed, and looking worriedly at my wallet.


I do not see how this is innovative at all. It has 2 screens. So what? If they're going to be next to each other, a single splitscscreen would have served just as well. If they are NOT going to be next to each other, then we'll be faced with the frustrating task of having to look back and forth between screens.

Yeah, maybe I'm missing something, but this really doesn't seem that special to me. Also, it wouldn't hurt Nintendo to compete with itself, as they get the money no matter which of the two handhelds someone buys.
Why put something off for tomorrow when you can do it the next day?

No, because while Nintendo is busy trying to split it's development teams between the two consoles, the PSP will come along and annihilate them both.

Competing with itself will hurt Nintendo.
