Sony is considering developing a 3D-slider tool for the PlayStation 3, very much like the 3D-slider option recently announced by Nintendo for its forthcomign 3DS glasses-free handheld console.
British Nintendo developers are adamant that the new glasses-free 3DS handheld, due for release early in 2011, is going to appeal to both hardcore and casual gamers alike.
The Nintendo 3DS was undoubtedly the big news at this year's E3 in Los Angeles, somewhat overshadowing the Kinect and Move motion-control games on show from Microsoft and Sony.

Sony is set to launch a 'Classic White' PS3 in Japan and bump up the storage capacity on its games console to a maximum 320GB later this month.
Sony's PlayStation 3 has finally become a profitable machine for the company, for the first time since the console launched back in 2006.

Microsoft's Xbox PR chief Aaron Greenberg has said that Peter Molyneux's Kinect-controlled virtual boy Milo is a tech demo, and that Microsoft has no plans to release it as an Xbox 360 title.
Nintendo is set to provide enough internal memory in its forthcoming 3DS handheld console to allow users to store multiple games at once on the device.
