    Best Buy And Nintendo Teaming Up To Serve 3DS Games Via Wi-Fi


    Best Buy will open up their in-store wireless networks to allow kids (and kids at heart) to download games in their stores. They will also, obviously, sell the 3DS and will provide a “firsthand look at the platform with experts” in store. While it’s certainly magnanimous of Best Buy to open their Wi-Fi to the masses, I wonder how much of this will end up being an upsell? Read More

    Nintendo Launching Wireless eShop For 3DS At E3

    Not only can we potentially maybe expect a Wii 2 at E3 this year but Nintendo 3DS owners might just have access to the wireless eShop, a system for downloading and buying games right from your console.

    Nintendo 3DS Takes Over The Jet Blue Terminal

    Now this is a great idea: Nintendo has rented a few spots in the Jet Blue Terminal at JFK (I can’t confirm they’ve done this elsewhere but I’ll ask). They have folks on hand to show off the device and there are plenty of chairs and 3DS devices for kids and, presumably, the adults in charge of their care, to use. Read More

    Nintendo Can't Sell The 3DS And It's Your Fault


    The 3DS isn’t selling well and it’s your fault – at least that’s what Nintendo is suggesting. According to Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, most people don’t know what the heck to do with the thing. Jeez! CVG points to this quote: The value of 3D images without the need for special glasses is hard to be understood through the existing media. However, we have found… Read More

  • Here's The 3DS' The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Opening Movie

    Nothing like a calm opening title sequence to settle the soul and quiet the mind. Sure, it’s just remake of Ocarina of Time for the 3DS, but this movie brought back such good memories that I’m ready to replay the game. [via Joystiq] Read More

    Potential 3DS Design Flaw Causing Screen Scratches, Cracked D-Pads

    You would think that Nintendo would have foreseen all the design issues of the 3DS, well, years ago. The company has been working with clamshell handhelds for over 30 years. However some 3DS owners are reporting that their top screens are getting scratched and some d-pads are cracking. Read More

    Gigantic AR Card Creates Life-Sized Miis (Kind Of)

    Here’s something to save up your coins for, at least if you’re in Japan. Nintendo’s “Club Nintendo” rewards program lets you trade product registration and stuff for little rewards, like a Game & Watch replica or a case for your DS. And one new item in the Japanese Club Nintendo is this giant AR card, that creates virtual Miis as big as you — if you… Read More

    The 3DS hit the ground running last month after nearly a year of hype and media coverage. Early estimates pegged the first week sales numbers around 500k-750k. Yeah, those were a bit high. Nintendo itself just revealed through an interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime that the numbers were more like 400k. March as a whole was good for the DS family with the entire… Read More
