Nintendo 3DS Gets Netflix and Free Internet
To be honest, the limited ability of the Nintendo DSi and XL was somewhat of a dissappointment. Even for things lately such as getting the Okamiden demo. Step 1: Go to Nintendo Wii. Step 2: Go to the Nintendo Channel. Step 3: Find the demo and transmit. Step 4: Get frustrated, quit, and come back to it 3 hours later with your short attention span.
Something that should lock in the attention of even the most ADD ridden person is the fact that the Nintendo 3DS will support Netflix. This might have something to do with the already in place support that Nintendo has received from Netflix on the already represented Wii. One other important element to the formula is that AT&T will be providing the internet backbone for this to occur.
“Nintendo 3DS will be the most connected Nintendo device ever, with its ability to link people via local wireless connections, while at the same time connecting them to people and content worldwide via hotspot connectivity.”-Satoru Iwata, Nintendo GDC Keynote Speech.
Players will have the ability to connect to over 10,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots nationwide. While we have already begun to foresee the coming battle as Sony and Nintendo duke it out in our palms, Nintendo is going to sport the free accessibility to couple their already eagerly loyal fans. These fans will also be able to upload the DSware games that they already purchased for the DSi and DSiXL. The update for all will occur May 2011.
Another Nintendo favorite will be making his way back on to the console. This time hopefully sporting tail based on this prototype logo.
