Reggie Fils-Aime On Nintendo 3D Interest


imageNintendo’s first 3D system, the Virtual Boy, wasn’t a home run, but Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, is optimistic about the Nintendo 3DS.


"We’ve mentioned that this coming E3, in June, we’ll be showcasing a new 3DS with 3D capability in a handheld product. We think the consumer is going to be very interested in that news,” Fils-Aime said in a televised interview with CNBC.


The Nintendo 3DS is a handheld system with a 3D screen that does not require special glasses. Rumored features include a 3D joystick and force feedback. But, will the consumer “pay up for it”, the reporter asked.


“Well, we certainly do, and again as long as you provide great new experiences and great value we’ve seen in this category the consumer is willing to participate,” Fils-Aime answered.


What kind of “great new experiences” would the Nintendo 3DS need to have for you to participate in buying it?
