Sony Boss Kaz Hirai talks about 3DS

Nintendo caused quite a stir at the E3 gaming expo with its glasses-free Nintendo 3DS. In an interview with Japan's Sankei, Sony Computer Entertainment honcho Kaz Hirai had this to say about the glasses-free 3D tech:

In in-house research, naked eye 3D for portable machines is not high and there are presently limits for it.

Sony has always done this before with Nintendo, but usually later down the line they will release a PSP with 3D capabilities that doesn't have 3D glasses. I really don't think Nintendo has anything to worry about it, they already have their fans hooked on the 3DS, now they just need to sell it.

If your talking about motion controllers Sony was developing the Move back in 2004....just saying and even if sony dose bring out a handheld portable like they said " is not high and there are presently limits for it." it will be where Sony wants it to be when they get it..

There's no doubt Sony was working on motion controllers. The SIXAXIS had accelerometers like the Wii remote. However it seems that Sony only ever decides to use these technologies if another company proves it can be profitable.

In that case I wish someone would've told Sony about PS3 not doing so well and making them a loss for every sale. Then again, at least Sony is looking to have a 10 year plan, even if its graphics chip is limited, the Cell has yet to be fully utilized by games.
