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.

not seeing a problem with her reply other than perhaps the fact that she didn't make any attempt to educate you regarding why your assumption was mistaken, which frankly isn't her job anyway, so i can't fault her for it. again, you're lucky all she did was have a laugh :3

@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

@grenworths: again, it's an advertised feature of the system. it might not be what you bought it for, but apparently it's what they bought it for, and now that they can't use the system for its intended purpose, they're left with a rather expensive paperweight. it's not that hard to imagine that they'd be a bit put out over the surprise hacker attack and subsequent downtime, is it?

@grenworths: i'm seeing plenty of disappointed people in this thread, but no one actually freaking out over the loss of online gameplay. so what if their gaming preferences do revolve around playing games online? Not everyone will buy a system for the same thing — some might want the single-player experience, others might want it for its capability to play blu-ray DVDs and netflix as well as download PSOne classics, and still more maybe bought it specifically for games they can play online with their friends — it's an advertised feature of the system, after all. yes, there's more to life than playing games online, but if that's not what you bought the system for, it's not what you bought it for.

imagine if the Nintendo WFC was unusable for this long, and you and your goldeneye-playing friends were suddenly blocked from playing it, wouldn't you be at least a little bit disappointed and miss having fun playing with them like you had been? there's some pretty serious people up in that thread, and if not yourself, i can definitely see some of them miss playing online quite a bit if that were to happen.
