Nintendo 3DS stolen and taken apart in Taiwan

Nintendo 3DS teardown pics surface

| Gaming News | Posted: Jan 12, 2011 4:22 pm

The Nintendo 3DS will be a big deal when it finally launches and many portable gamers will buy one of the consoles. Nintendo has hurt sales a bit by protecting itself from potential suits when it issued a warning that the 3DS might hurt the eyes of kids 6-years-old and under if they play the console. The 3DS isn't out yet and already some geeks in Taiwan have taken one and torn the thing down to show what's inside.

We can only assume that since the 3DS isn't available by legal means at this point, the console that is torn down in the pics is stolen. Despite the theft of the device, this is the first glimpse at the hardware under the hood that we have seen. Despite the disassembly, details on the console and its innards are still scant.

 

The details that are thought to be correct so far include that the console has an ARM processor. The little battery is a 1300mAh unit and we have heard it's only good for a few hours of 3D play per charge. You can check out the hoards of pics of the teardown at the source link below.
