Tech Take: Nintendo Adds New Dimension to Handheld Gaming with 3DS

The virtual world took a step closer to reality Tuesday when Nintendo (NTDOY) debuted its long-anticipated 3-D handheld game device Nintendo 3DS, along with a laundry list of 3-D games to play on it. By gathering up a healthy-sized group of games publishers, Nintendo can demonstrate that gamers who buy the 3-D device will have plenty of games to choose from.

Nintendo's ecosystem of 3-D games includes the likes of Super Mario 64, Nintendogs, Animal Crossing, The Sims and Dead or Alive. Nintendo didn't disclose the pricing and availability of its 3-D game player, which it had previously said it expected to be ready by the end of March.
