Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has said that he hopes to make the 3DS huge! Game Adrenaline reveals some info where Nintendo talks about the possibility of streaming movies and TV shows.
If this is true, than I will certainly buy the 3DS.
Definitely! I would get my hands on it the first day it comes out
Nintendo is NO.1 when it comes to starting trends - We can wait on the what a dumb move and it will never take off only to say the opposite when Sony and MS do it.
I'm already buying this, I do see it happerning and if I can stream to my TV over my wirelss network, that'll be fantastic.
Yup it would be amazing!
LIKE NETFLIX STREAMING :| ?
Im not sure. It might be that or maybe they cut a deal directly through the movies and tv shows
nice! never really thought about buying 3ds before, but umm how long is the battery life on the current ds already out?
I think a few hours. I think 8 or 9 max with the light low
....but I definitely won't be getting one. I have purchased 3 DS Lites over the past 2 years and each one of them has failed. All 3 stopped reading cartridges and one just stopped working entirely and is not even powering up! People harp on about the 360 failure rate but in my household the DS has had a 100% failure rate. And before you ask, its nothing to do with mistreatment as the units were being well looked after.
But those consoles are old. The 3DS is a completely new system, you cant knock it till you try it
" you cant knock it till you try it" people dont seem to think that with kinect although it does look crap
...if I do end up trying the 3DS it won't be at its release price point. Its set to sell for over $500 in New Zealand. Thats more than a Wii or 360!
i have never had a DS break before. My first DS's battery power died because i played it so much.
What the heck were you doing to them? My DS Lite is 4 years old and it still works perfectly.
when you take them into the shower with you...
It's like going back in time...
that...should make a difference?! (not)
3DS day 1 with a smile on my face the size of the Kool-Aid man..lol. :)
I repeat 3DS just keeps getting better!
but I think gaming consoles are doing too many things at one time. That has resulted in more malfunctions especially for the first couple of years of release. Many of these extras I don't want or need and I'd rather a console be the focus on gaming all the way instead of being a social media machine. I'll watch an occasional movie on my consoles but I'd rather preserve it's lifespan for gaming. That's just my opinion
Ummm... No offense but who is going to stare at a small screen with my neck bent for 2 or more hours just to watch a movie especially if i have to stare straight ahead for 3D? I always thought that was a dumb idea no matter what system it was. Not worth the eye and neck strain in my opinion
its a nintendo product so i dont think itll do many things other than to play games. another thing also is that watching movies on such a small screen wont be too entertaining for a lot but to each his own.
Service fee or just streaming from the internet? I am also buying this as well guys! Watching tv shows or movies will be awesome! A portable tv in your pocket! ----OFF TOPIC sorry guys---- Are we still be able to do 4 players video 3D chat? That feature is what I am hoping that Nintendo does not scrape before, the Nintendo 3DS release here in North America next year...
how big is the screen again?
Even if this is true I wont be buying the 3DS for this feature. A decent lineup and continuation of games is all i need for my 3ds.
