That would be a great feature. The gamepad range is a tad short in my household, so lying in my bed the reception is spotty. Using the 3DS hopefully over WiFi would remedy that situation and allow me to play my Wii U games in bed more often like I do with my Vita / PS4.
As long as it doesn't turn out to be a damned rental service or something stupid like that, I wouldn't mind seeing them at least trying to make it work. I have doubts concerning the hardware compatibility, though...
id pay 20 bucks a month to hav 100 wii and wiiU games streamed to a 3dsXL. i love the luxury of that on the vita with ps3 games (tho im paying an arm and a leg atm). i want this so i am supporting it while its in beta. the 3ds needs more n64 classics and remakes imo. game cube remakes too.
I would rather get a free app from Nintendo that just directly links a Wii U to a 3DS to stream a game you're playing on it to the 3DS. Paying for rentals is inferior to downloading and keeping your games in any case.
you cant DL WiiU games the 3DS would hva eto be able to handle the games. free is always better, but im not a cheap person and wouldnt mind paying to stream 100's of games instantly and be able to take them with me anywhere without using HD space. i guess im talking about BC tho. trust me im all about DLing and owning my games when it comes to PS+, i barely use it i buy all my games at ndividually.
I dunno about you, but 3DS to Wii U streaming would be pretty cool. :U
The 3ds has such a low res screen I don't see the point.
Square Enix released Dragon Quest X on 3DS that is being played via streaming application so DQX is being streamed to 3DS. www.youtube.com/v/nyeuGsJMrzw Wii U streams to Gamepad's native resolution of 854x480 at 60 frames per second while upper and lower screen combined have 2/3 of pixel count as Wii U gamepad. Only issue would be latency and bandwidth which depends on internet connection available. 3DS screen resolution is low, but that does not mean that it streaming to it is not an option. PSP screen is 480 by 272 while 3DS is 400 by 240 in 2D and 800 by 240 in 3D without counting lower screen. PSP pixel count 130560 3DS 2D pixel count 96000 and 3D pixel count is 192000 so 3DS has 47% more pixels than PSP and thats not counting lower screen too so its over twice the PSP. 3DS total pixel count 268800 and PSP total is 130560 so 3DS 2.05 times more pixels.
dude psp was last gen so is not fair to compare its screen to a current gen 3ds
The PSP released in like 2005 lol, compare the 3DS to the PSVita, whos resolution in 960 by 540, or 518,400 pixels, which is nearly two times the 3ds's resolution. Anyways, I dont know how well the Wii U could stream to 3ds, but Nintendo will without a doubt have this functionality in their next handheld console.
no, Nintendo wl wait for the next successor of the ds and the successor of the wiiU. They wont make gamers buy a vita and a ps4 like sony did. It was rumored they are doing something of this nature. A project called fusion.
that was just a rumour, its long gone now
They really should jump on the streaming and gaming subscription (like PS+) bandwagon.
so a long time ago someone said Sony steals ideas from nintendo. Well look at it now.
This has nothing to do with Sony.... And nintnedo was the first of the big 3 to have streaming...its called the Wii u
nope second the psp could stream some ps3 games and the vita did some more too.
Huh? Limited PS3 games could be streamed to the PSP. So the Wii u wasn't the first to have streaming.
PSP + PS3, Steam + TV, Dreamcast + Controller (Some small minigames though), there has been alot of Streaming stuff before Wii U,
Because PS3 to PSP streaming totally isn't just a wireless re-tooling of GC to GBA connectivity. Riiiiight.
we're talking about streaming not save transfering, streaming means over a network showing the same graphics of one thing to another, i doubt gameboy advanced supported the use of polygons (polygons are made to make 3D models)
Streaming or no, the concept of using the hand-held in conjunction with the console is literally just a re-tool. Look at Four Swords Adventures. The basis was straight from Nintendo.
Honestly, what the hell are you smoking? Bringing the GC in this is pointless. The argument "Nintendo was the first out of the Big 3 to have streaming. It's called the Wii U" Me: No it wasn't. PS3 and PSP had it You: hurr durr retooling of GC to GBA connectivity ME:lolwat? Either way you cut it? Wii U wasn't the first to have it. Edit: Streaming or "no". WTF? What the hell are you blabbing about? WE ARE TALKING ABOUT STREAMING IN THE FIRST PLACE. Wii U was not the first out of the big 3 to implement streaming. Please stop the mental gymnastics.
hmm, i have pokemon on my currnt 3ds all the way from my gamecube, connectivity b4 that too, Nintendo had connectivity way b4 sony had a handheld Oh, and 'playstation' was nintendo's name for its console that Sony stole, don't mention imitation with the word Sony and 'playstation' in it
What needs to happen is the ability to emulate 3DS games on the Wii U utilizing the gamepad as a second screen.
Kid Icarus Uprising would be amazing on the big screen.
Good idea, but 3DS titles are very low-res, so, that'd look horrid on any TV, and seeing that most people have large TVs now-a-days, you can see how that goes. I'd rather streaming just to the Gamepad.
I agree but I could see that tarnishing 3DS sales.
What we need is the opposite, Nintendo must release a device like PlayStation TV that will allow us to play 3DS games on Wii U on the big screen, if they ever decide to do that then that will be probably the time for me to buy a Wii U, atm other than Xenoblade there is nothing else I want to play on that console but if I had the ability to also play games like Fire Emblem & Bravely Default then this could make me get one.
A 3DS game blown up to TV size will look horrible. What is it, like 200p or something?
if the games is at least 480p then it would be fine but 3DS sucks power-wise compare to Vita, Vita is many times stronger so games from Vita look good & the resolution is big enough to even look good in our TV screens, but yeah as I said if resolution from the shity 3DS hardware is what you say it is I don't know that then yeah it will look horrible.
As powerful as the New 3DS is, I've long suspected it's only a few hairs shy of Nintendo's first HD handheld on par with the Vita. If handhelds are going to survive in NA at all, they're going to have to be more connected to consoles. This is one spectacular way to do it.
Nobody seems to care if Vita has this feature, but I'm sure if they put it on 3DS everyone will think it's the best thing since sliced bread.
It's not that nobody cares; it's the fact that the Vita is very under-utilized, not to mention how expensive it is. Considering its lack of titles outside of Japan, it seems like a pretty big wallet dip to pick up a glorified controller - since that what it seems to mainly function as here in the West.
I use mine far more than my 3DS and now wit PS Now it's like a portable PS3
