Nintendo’s long-awaited 3DS makes its worldwide debut in Japan on Saturday, but we’ve managed to get our hands on one in Hong Kong a couple of days early. As the successor to the incredibly popular Nintendo DS it has a lot to live up to, but I’m willing to bet you just want to know one thing about it: Does it work? Does it really deliver 3D without glasses?
The short answer: Yes.
The long answer: Yes, but it can be frustrating.
As you may have noticed, I'm a bit of a gadget geek. And a gaming geek.
So it should come as no surprise that I bought the Nintendo 3DS as soon as it came out - which, for Hong Kong, was two days before the official worldwide debut in Japan on Saturday.
Unfortunately, I didn't get the day off to play with my new toy. So my impressions here will be a little brief.
What you probably want to know is: Does it work? Can you see 3D images without those annoying glasses? The answer is simply, yes. It works.
