Nintendo 3DS gets free Netflix update!

Nintendo 3DS gets free Netflix update in tomorrow's eShop update

Since Nintendo's 3DS launched back in March, we've been hanging on by a thread, counting the minutes until this week's eShop update. And no, it's not just because Extreme Hangman 2 is finally dropping on DSiWare: Netflix's streaming video application will be available on 3DS as well. Finally a chance to bring Agent Cooper on the go and make those smug short-form video users in Europe and Japan quit their braggin'!

Nintendo revealed as much with an early announcement of its weekly eShop, DSi, and Wii Shop updates, also detailing several games that will be available for purchase across the Wii, DSi, and 3DS. We're particularly fond of the Virtual Console Game & Watch Gallery coming to 3DS, but fans of super old-school sports games may be more excited to hear about Baseball being this week's other retro re-release.

Hmm.... wonder how this will effect the 3DS sales...... gods damned I want one now! Though I still stand by hating 3D and sincerely doubt I'd use that feature of it. Updated graphics, great oncoming game catalogue, and mobile netflix streaming though.......  ;u

Holy shit!! That's today!!  No notification on my 3DS yet.  But I'll post when/if it happens.  The new games are much better with the use of the 3D.  Zelda and DOA are very sweet looking games in 3D.
