While I was looking online, I found an article about the Nintendo 3DS set to be released on March 27th. Then I searched videos on it to see what it really was. My brother has the Nintendo DSi which I have played on before, but I did not know that they were taking hand-held games to this level. The first thing that I thought of after seeing the video was the fact that so many movies these days are coming out in 3D. Some can even be bought in 3D on DVD. There are new tv’s that enhance any 3D movie or show.
In class we talked about how games copied literature and cinema by adding a story line to many games in order to become a recognized kind of entertainment when the gaming world was just starting out. Gaming today has been established as entertainment for all ages because of how games have adapted to popular culture. So I think this is another way the gaming world is trying to keep up with the times and compete with cinema as the top form of entertainment.
