The Nintendo 3DS has had some demoers already at CES. According to them, the 3DS is going to be a great handheld game console.

The 3D effects are really good, as shown by the game Pilotwings, which demoers were allowed to play. The game is simple; you fly a plane through a course of circles, or aim a jetpacked pilot at balloons floating in the sky. However, it provided good depth judgement and made it a lot easier to make it through the circles.

Also, demoers were allowed to watch a trailer for the movie Legend of the Guardians, which really showed how great the 3DS’ screen resolution is.

Old DS games, such as from the DS Lite, can still be played on the 3DS using an SD card, but they will not be played in 3D.

The representatives did not disclose any information about its specs or price. However, in a press event on January 19, it is expected that they will reveal the exact release date and some specs. The Nintendo 3DS that the demoers used was just a demo with unfinished hardware.

Hands on with the Nintendo 3DS at CES.
