Nintendo president Satoru Iwata admits the last-generation console could have displayed 3D images when fitted with never-released LCD-screen peripheral.

I had heard about this already- I want to say it was on Kotaku or somewhere similar a week or two ago.

Not surprised that they were thinking about 3D. It's like they said- LCD screens back then were expensive as hell, and would have made it extremely expensive and likely would have been a failure.

It's a bright idea really to just wait until the price of LCDs plummeted.

Yeah and with the price of the the 3DS already at $250 just think how much the screen would have been, probably as much as the GC itself.

Plus who would play the GC on a screen? Doesn't make sense. Much better to have waited.

I would highly recommend checking out this article: http://www.electricp...nline.com/?p=38

In particular, page three. :D
