Nintendo has been bigging up the amount of customer demand and feverish anticipation surrounding its new handheld, the 3DS.

With developers scrambling over themselves to praise the machine's spec, and a scheduled worldwide 2010 launch canned in favour of Japan only after fears about supply demands and production numbers, the hype machine is certainly rumbling along steadily.

Nintendo has described the device as "the first successful mass market 3D device" claiming it will usher in the same revolution in gaming that the Nintendo Wii triggered off for motion controls.

Meanwhile Epic's Mark Rein has stated that the 3DS falls "well below the minimum spec required" to run the Unreal engine even at a heavily reduced setting. Not quite the 3D powerhouse you'd imagine then.
