Nintendo 3DS 3D tech lacks precision claims Sony gaming CEO

Jun 21, 2010

Given most gaming hardware execs tend to be ultra-civilised when it comes to discussing their rivals' wares, we're not sure whether Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai's comments on the Nintendo 3DS in fact count as shockingly barbed.  Speaking with Sankei Biz, Hirai dismissed the 3DS' glasses-free 3D technology as limited and lacking in precision, citing Sony's own in-house research.

"Based off internally conducted research," the executive said, "naked-eye 3D for portables does not have high precision, and at present there are limitations."  Claiming not to have seen the 3DS in person, he declined to comment on the Nintendo system specifically, though his comments do imply that Sony themselves have considered - and discounted - using glasses-free 3D panels for some future version of the PSP.
