Nintendo: 3D is not for home consoles
Nintendo has all but ruled out supporting 3D in the successor to the Wii.
Reggie Fils-Aime, boss of Nintendo of America emphasised their next generation of home console would not feature 3D.
Fils-Aime explained to CNN: "Glasses-free is a big deal. We've not said publicly what the next thing for us will be in the home console space, but based on what we've learned on 3D, likely, that won't be it."
Hideki Konno expanded on Nintendo's position on 3D adding: "I think at Nintendo, we realise that any sort of goggle-type 3D technology was not going to work. In order to make 3D technology viable with video games, we thought we needed to have glasses-free 3D."
