* Revolution's "revolution": 3D projection?

Gamecube/Nintendo
If true, this could be amazing: IGN's reporting that The "Revolution" console's big one-up could be 3D projection.

Well, it looks like Broken Saints has gone and posted its much-anticipated theory on what makes the Nintendo Revolution revolutionary. At the core of the theory sits how Revolution will display games: through a form of real-time 3D projection. That's right folks, along the lines of a classic 50s monster movie. Nintendo itself has stated that what it plans to use on Revolution isn't all that unique, only that it has never been applied to videogames. Taking that into account, plus recent patents filed by Nintendo, and it doesn't sound all that far fetched, argues Burgess.
It it's true, it could be interesting. The problem is that (barring their coming up with a technological miracle) it would have to either be a sold-separately screen or else based on HDTV technology, because half-scanline modes on NTSC sets would just give too many people headaches.
