preGame 44: Nintendo 3DS in-studio; Yakuza 4; Homefront

On today's preGame, we'll give you a hands-on look at the Nintendo 3DS including AR Games and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition. We'll also play Yakuza 4 and Homefront live on the show!


A very special afternoon delivery from Nintendo just makes it on today's show. Live today in the studio is the brand-new Nintendo 3DS portable gaming system, the first of its kind to display a 3D image without the need for special glasses.

It may not be available in stores until March 27, but the Nintendo 3DS has already arrived at CNET's New York offices and makes its debut on today's preGame. We'll show off the console from every angle and demo a few titles including the bundled AR Games and Mii Maker as well as Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition.

After we lift the curtain on the 3DS, we'll play a scene from Yakuza 4, the PlayStation 3 exclusive from Sega--don't worry, there's plenty of rooftop fights and combo kicks to go around.

Finally, we'll end the show with a chaotic scene from Homefront, the alternate-future first-person shooter from Kaos Studios. Penned by same writer who brought us the films "Red Dawn" and "Apocalypse Now," Homefront is set in 2027 where North Korea has gone absolutely mental and power hungry by invading its neighboring countries and now the United States.

It's one of the most intense stories in a game we've dealt with on preGame, so buckle up and check out our live demo!

Will there be one Apple Ring to rule them all? That's what a patent application says. Plus, building the thinnest gadget isn't innovation anymore and Apple just got a reality check from Microsoft.
