Nintendo woos gamers

2010-06-16 17:06
Los Angeles - Nintendo is showing off its 3D handheld gaming system and introducing updates to classic game franchises like "Donkey Kong" and "Kirby".

It's part of an effort by Nintendo to stay ahead of its rivals by sticking to what it knows best - video games. Meanwhile, Sony and Microsoft are working to expand the reach of their consoles beyond gaming.

At the E3 Expo in Los Angeles on Tuesday, an industry conference of 45 000, Nintendo introduced the 3DS, the latest version of its popular handheld device. But unlike other attempts at 3D screens, the gadget works without special glasses.

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter says Nintendo "blew people away". But the big question is the price. Nintendo didn't say how much the 3DS would cost or when it will be available.
