Capcom CEO Haruhiro Tsujimoto is interested in the 3D capabilities of Nintendo's upcoming Nintendo 3DS portable -- but he says he's much more interested in what the manufacturer might be learning from Apple.

Stereoscopic 3D technology "allows us to do things that couldn't be done until now, so the development staff is showing great interest," said Tsujimoto in an interview with Japanese-language business publication Nikkei as translated by Andriasang.

"But what's important is how much the users themselves want 3D content," he added.

For Tsujimoto, and for Capcom at the corporate level, the 3D opportunities take a backseat to the potential for new business opportunities, he said -- particularly now that Apple has revolutionized the software market for handheld devices with its digital-only App Store.

"What we're more looking forward to is the offering of a new business model," the CEO said. "Nintendo has been in the hardware business for a long time, and I believe they must be looking closely at Apple's recent success."

He said Capcom and other game publishers are looking forward to what Nintendo unveils about the 3DS during next week's E3 Expo in Los Angeles.
