If you were not already aware, the N3DS is set to release a web browser come June 7th in conjunction with the release of its eShop. This web browser will allow users to surf the Internet on the go, or at least a small percentage of the Internet.
ghey as hell..
Get with the times Nintendo... My 3 year old phone has a better web browser than this.
they would not really need to use those formats to view site like youtube or whatever. The custom browser would more than likely use portals designed to support the browser. Which would be more reliant on the portal site doing the proper format conversion the ds/3ds can view. Smart move as it takes the processing of such content away from the hardware in your hand and places it on the server side. This could be similar to how there are psp supported portal sites that let you view youtube content because the psp does not support youtube directly. If anything, the notion of netflix support (rumored) comes at the use of silverlight which is what netflix uses currently for PC/360 streaming.
i was mad at first but thanks darth for clearing thing bubble for you and wtf its just a browser
I agree! At least HTML5 for crying out loud! You can't be paranoid forever Nintendo! Even NGP will run at least HTML5 I am sure. :) I might sell my 3DS to pay for it. This is nuts!
support silverlight in place of html 5. flash is for old school content. I would expect it to not support flash. Criticize lack of flash support all you want but it is flash that is holding back progress of internet video file formats for improved streaming at less bandwidth.
This is stupid. Really.
Wow so... what sites can you visit? Is there a list, published by Nintendo? 3DS: Supports web browsing*
I bought a 3ds for nothing!
But you have SSF4 & a bastardised web browser... what more could you ask, for your $300?
Thats such garbage.With that crap browser,its just Twitter and some Nintendo sites.
I would say wait for confirmation first, hope this is not true
Let the fanbois drool over their keyboards and do some bashing until anything official is announced.
http://translate.google.com... Ninty Japan's official page. No HTML5 support listed & 'Plug-ins such as Adobe Flash is not supported.'
I'll still wait to see more information thanks Mr _dols. You can carry on bashing though.
As a DS & a Wii owner, I'am a big Nintendo fan. But Ninty have dropped the ball and screwed over early 3DS adopters. I ain't bashing. You asked for official. I gave you official.
And theres no information on how the browser is going to handle things. This doesn't mean a lot really.
Way to go Nintendo... -_- are you gonna get in the 21st century someday?
Does it at least run Java?
Well so much for looking at porn vids on the go. Guess ill just have to stick to pics.
maybe(i hope) it get 3d porn video
If you look at Nintendos history you'll see that they're not very fond of licencing fees.
Nintendo has an opportunity to surprise everybody this year; no one is expecting any ground-breaking features or unique specification to their consoles nor a big new original IP announcement to their catalogue (for once let's not mention again Mario/Zelda/Mariokart.. basically the nostalgia enhanced franchises). Instead, Nintendo keep disappointing their hardcore crowd. In my opinion the Wii and 3DS have been a big let down to this point, mainly because they lacked support (big time) from Nintendo themselves and the 3rd party as their previous gen. consoles. e.g: Gamecube. Wii: an average of 3 descent games per year, come on.. really? let alone the 3DS and its line up.
