As we all expected, so far Nintendo's arguably made the best use of the 3DS's stereoscopic screen, but it's not all high and mighty about it — it wants to help third party developers get up to the same level.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata told investors the company would happily pass on knowledge of how to leverage the 3DS screen if asked:
As long as software publishers of the Nintendo 3DS make the relevant inquiries to us, we are willing to disclose what we have done, and we are actually sharing the information with them. Rather than keeping this sort of know-how confidential and trying to leverage upon it to give our software a competitive edge, we believe that it is more beneficial for the company if all players will comment, “All the Nintendo 3DS software looks natural to our eyes and very attractive as we feel that the images are really 3D.” So, when we are asked, we are eager to support our third-party publishers.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to say "all the Nintendo 3DS software looks natural to our eyes and very attractive as we feel that the images are really 3D"? That's the goal, developers. Amaze us.
