Nintendo 3DS: Part Gaming Device, Part 3D Video Recorder

The gaming giant's handheld device will have the 3D playing and recording capabilities in order to make it palatable to a larger audience.

Rumors have been circulating that the handheld device Nintendo 3DS will be able to record videos in 3D. In an effort to boost sales, it is now confirmed that Nintendo will be launching a system update in November that would allow the gaming device to support 3D video recording.

The Nintendo 3DS was launched in March 2011 where sales suffered due to low interest from consumers for 3D gaming capability. However, since August, the Nintendo 3DS has seen a 260 percent increase in month-to-month sales after a bold move to cut retail price by 33 percent (from $249.99 to $169.99). Nintendo hopes that with the added 3D recording functionality, it will attract more potential customers.
