I'm guessing Nintendo will release a 3DS successor sometime in 2015-2017, giving the 3DS a good 4-6 year lifespan. The 3DS's current screen is 800x240 3D, essentially 400x240. Let's say they drop 3D for their next handheld and don't make the much fabled handheld/console hybrid, just a new console and a new handheld, what resolution screen do you think it will have? Or screens?
Personally I'm hoping for a fold-able (so it can be clamshell) 800x480 screen. I honestly doubt Nintendo goes over 480p for their next handheld no matter what. The 3DS released at 240p in 2011 after the DS released at 256x192 in 2004, so Nintendo makes very small leaps in resolution between gens. Honestly there is a good chance we get stuck with 480x320 or 640x360. I'm serious, Nintendo would totally pull that in 2016 I bet.
So whenever the 3DS's successor comes out, let's say 2017 at the latest, what resolution do you think the screen(s) will be?
