New system or new living room? Sony vs. Nintendo on 3D tech

... At E3, Nintendo mercilessly mocked the idea of wearing glasses to experience 3D. The company's newest handheld, the 3DS, gives you a brilliant 3D effect without requiring expensive or annoying glasses, and Nintendo seemed happy to point out that advantage. It didn't help that the gathered press and bloggers left Nintendo's event to go straight to Sony's press conference... where we were handed 3D glasses upon entrance.

they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."

Hold on a moment. Nintendo only have a handheld system that can do autostereoscopy, with one 3.5" screen with a resolution of 400x240. It's not like I'm going to be watching 3D content on it, beyond any games. It also doesn't scale up to TV sizes.

Why is why Sony, and cinemas, and everyone else who has a screen larger than about 17" has to do 3D a different way.
