LAS VEGAS--Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime stopped by the CNET stage early this morning to give us first access to the brand-new Nintendo 3DS portable gaming system scheduled to hit stores this March.

We were really impressed with the overall design of the device, and the 3D effect is certainly eye-popping the instant it's picked up. Fils-Aime explained that the 3DS is a "game changer" in terms of how people consume 3D content.

We were then treated to a quick 3D demo of Pilotwings, which really showed of the effectiveness of the 3D slider. Gamers will have the option to adjust the 3D intensity or turn off the effect altogether.

We'll have a lot more information about more features of the 3DS later this month when Nintendo visits New York, but until then, check out our First Look with the glasses-less Nintendo 3DS straight from the CNET stage at CES 2011.
