guys, give the rules a once-over if you would — no profanity in comments, please. replacing it with a nonsense word at least left the sentence readable; it wouldn't have made sense at all if a random placeholder word hadn't been there, and to be honest we're considering a word filter when the forums are eventually upgraded, so you might want to get used to it. :3
don't like the way things have been handled? use the contact form next time and I'll be glad to explain why I did whatever it was I did.

this has already been brought to the forums, and mynintendonews is full of it if they're trying to link this to the PSN issue.

that said, no one's seen anything hit their inboxes yet, not on the US side of the pond anyway. if you're not seeing anything, don't worry about it — it'll probably show up later on if it's going to show up at all, and technically we have until the 31st to accept anyway. contact nintendo if you're that worried.

feel free to bring your thoughts to the mainsite article if you'd like to share them. :3

Lunar Knights was okay... didn't really start getting fun/interesting until the very end though. I remember liking the weapon upgrade system and absolutely hating the space battles, lol.

i was kinda interested in picking up the first Boktai game until i saw that its sequels (which had plots i would've so been down with playing through) were never localized outside Japan. :(

yeah, this looks like it has nothing to do with the PSN. there's no mention of what steps are being taken to protect our information at all, it's just telling us why they're specifically having to ask permission now and giving us the option to opt out of the service entirely if we don't want to be there. that kind of thing is required by law.

well that is a different problem.
but it doesn't mean it is not possible. as long as the engine supports z buffer extraction then it is very much possible.
the whole technology is really on the display and not the software. on the software you must make sure that you exploit the z buffer properly. the more detailed your zbuffer result the higher detail the 3D effect. (i.e. Street Fighter) if your z output is flat values it will still be 3D but less detailed. resulting in bad quality 3D such as those movies that do 3D as an afterthought.

no, it doesn't mean it's not possible, but Nintendo's about the whole package. if something won't work exactly the way they want it to, they won't release it to the public.

that said, if you'd like to bug or beg Nintendo to do something, you're more than welcome to take it straight to them — if you'd attempt putting together a proof of concept they may actually listen to you. good luck!

There could be a performance issue because a tiny separate software needs to run over your game and extract certain info from the rendering pipeline... There might be an issue with true multitaskingmultithreading... Also maybe not all games would be able to provide you with that information in the way you need it. So 3D possibly wouldn't work with all games.

... and there's your problem. if it won't work for all DS games, I'll bet Nintendo won't bother with it.

@bboy: no offense, but you have barely any life experience and you're trying to tell people that it's 'easy' to save that much money and then spend it on something frivolous as opposed to requirements for living such as utilities, rent, car payments and/or insurance fees, home upkeep, and a myriad of other surprise expenses — and i'm not even going into providing for dependants and/or children. you're making your own choices, and that's fine, but from where you're coming from, to say it's 'easy' for everyone to not only manage to set aside that much money but then to blow it on something so frivolous is absolutely laughable IMO. You're lucky all she did was laugh at you :3
