Introduction to Nintendo
During its history, Nintendo has provided technology improvements years ahead of its competitors. Despite it losing market share to Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation, Nintendo still has a lot of products available on the market. They currently sell the most sold mobile consoles, such as the Nintendo 3DS. This mobile console allows you to play games in stereoscopic 3D without the need for extra equipment or glasses. This handheld console also has 3D cameras, that allow you to access different augmented reality features built in by Nintendo.
Nintendo 3DS is a portable gaming console that can create stereoscopic 3D images without glasses. The device was unveiled at E3 2010 on June 15, 2010. The console was a success from the start and a great successor to the Nintendo DS. The new 3DS also had backward compatibility, being able to play DS and DSi games.
The 3DS was first released in Japan on 26th of February, 2011. Worldwide shipping began in March 2011. The device was sold with a significant discount six months after the release. The drop from US$249 to US$169 was due to the disappointing launch sale figures. People who bought the device with the older price got 10 free NES and Game Boy Advance games on the Nintendo eShop. This was a successful market strategy, and the sales improved significantly. It is now one of Nintendo’s top-selling handheld console R4 3DS.
