Glasses-Free 3D Android Gaming

Posted by GG Goblin On July - 8 - 2011

Suddenly the 3DS is looking less unique.

 
The highly advertised selling point of the Nintendo 3DS handheld console is already under threat from a smart phone. The LG Optimus 3D not only offers a 4.3″ stereoscopic HD touchscreen for glasses-free playback, but also dual 5mp cameras for high quality photos and 3D video recording. Shipping with Android v2.2, but upgradable to v2.3, the phone already has the support of a huge number of apps, and even ships with three 3D games from Gameloft – Asphalt 5 3D, N.O.V.A. 3D and Let’s Golf 2 3D.

The differences between dedicated games consoles and Smart phones has been becoming less and less in recent years, but should Nintendo be quaking in their boots? Currently the LG Optimus 3D will set you back a whopping £499, which will put it out of reach of most gamers. That is unless they take the phone as part of a contract, in which case the phone itself will be free with a monthly contract of as little as £35.

 
How does the quality compare with the 3DS? I couldn’t tell you yet as I don’t have the phone. But it has certainly got me interested and I would not be at all surprised to see other Smart phone manufacturers following suit and releasing their own glasses-free handsets. It could all just be a fad, only time will tell, but it would seem that Nintendo have just lost their 3DS unique selling point.
