Hmm, things look good and it sounds a bit funny for a handheld surpassing a home console from the technical point of view (3 times stronger than Wii?).

Tekken for 3DS and this becomes a Day 1 buy.

Besides, there are barely any 60fps games on PSP in fact, I can't think of any.  ;/
Tekken Dark Resurrection goes at 60 frames.

We could find out the release date for 3DS on July 29!

Interesting thing I discovered. Notice the release date:

November 1st, 2010

It's probably fake, but hey, it could be.......

That's an estimate. They really don't know yet. But we might find out this Thursday!

I'm excited for it for one reason. They are re-making old games for it. For example, Super Mario 64 and Kingdom Hearts 3D (I think... I'm not entirely sure about if they are re-making them or just making new ones... XD)

Yup, unfortunately. Now I'm losing hope of a late 2010 release. :(


EDIT: I found that article from Bloomberg jp and the wording is interesting.

http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bloomberg.com%2Fapps%2Fnews%3Fpid%3Djpconewsstory%26refer%3Djpconews%26tkr%3D7974%3AJP%26sid%3Daw6fGOsg.GBI&sl=ja&tl=en

The title and the first sentence state that it release date will be revealed September 29, and that the actual system will be available "during the quarter." Q4 2010 release confirmed? Unless it's a bad translation.

I need someone who can read Japanese to translate this correctly, I know some japansese but not a lot:

任天堂:3DSの価格、発売時期、今期出荷予定を9月29日発表予定 7月29日(ブルームバーグ):任天堂は今期中の発売を予定している携帯新ゲーム機 ニンテンドー3DS」について、日本国内で9月29日に価格や詳細な発売時期、今 期中の出荷見込みなどを発表することを計画している。 同社広報担当の皆川恭広氏が 29日、ブルームバーグ・ニュースの電話取材に対し明らかにした

Nintendo: 3DS price, release date, will be announced July 29 to September 29 will be available this fiscal year (Bloomberg): Nintendo's new Nintendo portable game machine that will be available in fiscal year 3DS "For, in Japan Availability and pricing details on 29 September, are planning to announce today and expected to ship during the period. Mr. Yasushi Hiroshi Minagawa 29 spokesman, said in an interview with Bloomberg News calls

Part of your translation was correct.

Anyway the 3DS is supposed to have motion controls so I wonder how those controls will be put into play in 3DS games...

Wow. Nintendo themselves say that even the announcement for release date date was speculation. They did say that there will be discussions of release dates and launches though.

Having the release date of Wednesday, September 29, 2010 seems fishy to me. It couldn't happen that soon. I still think it will be between November 2010 and March 2011 inclusive.

No, September 29, 2010 is the day they are announcing the release date, it's not the launch date of the 3DS.

My bad, sorry. That's two months away from today. I predict that they'll announce a holiday release, but considering the fact the announcement is held at the end of September, it might be in early 2011 instead.

They announced a date for the announcement date for release. I do hope it's worldwide, but I think Europe confirmed a March 2011 launch. Looks like it might not make it this year because of a late september announcement. Unless it does what Microsoft did with the slim and released it that same day. Highly doubtful though. ;)
