The Nintendo 3DS Gets Disassembled, Pictured

The Nintendo 3DS will be jumping on the 3D-craze just at the right time. It'll be delivering this year's hottest bullet point in consumer electronics, and doing it all without the need for awkward 3D glasses.

Nintendo's next handheld platform will launch in Japan on February 26 and then Europe and North America will get theirs in March. TVGZone in China, however, managed to get theirs even before anyone else and decided to take it apart to show the internet. For that, we thank him or her.

Check out the innards below:

    Too bad it's not as simple as... "oh, look, that's the region locking chip there, just pull it out... there we go, region free."

    The thing that baffles me is there is no standard policies on what is 3D.
    Looking at the Nintendo 3D, the screen specs looks weak. NO 120Hz refresh rates,etc...
    How do they pull off this 3D thing?

  • @kcorp2003 - The 3ds does not need a 120Hz screen as it it is not switching between the two images with every frame. Both images are displayed at once but the viewing angle is such that each eye is receiving the correct image.
