did i get it?
AWESOME! also netflix on 3ds sounds absolutely amazing. Wonder if it'll support high def?
The X-press will be there.
Here we come, 3DNX!
I'd love to see classics like Uniracers or Friday the Thirteenth (that game had hella parallaxing) in 3D!
My Exotic Farm. Oh yea gotta get that great green macaw.
Did someone say Game Gear!?
THE TRAIN WILL NEVER DIE! Because Nintendo will never stop putting out stuff!
3D content on Netflix for the 3DS sounds kind of awesome. Not in a "killer app" way, but it's definitely a nice incentive for people who were on the fence on the 3DS to consider one.
Good for the kids if their parents are watching episodes of Dexter on the Wii and the little ones want to watch Up or something.
It's so awesome that the train isn't that far awar from it's first big station.
Hoping it picks ups a few thousand passengers on the way

Pokemans Crystal and I'm happy.
Wait, that's what My Exotic Farm looks like?
I've always imagined it looked like in this video:
C'mon Jeff. You know J.J. & Jeff in 3D is the true killer app.
CHOO CHOO, MOTHERFUCKERS
I don't think the new Super Mario game teased by Nintendo was mentioned in the article. It was reported as currently being developed by the same guys behind Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2.
so still no news on GBA games on the 3DS eshop?
3D Bonk and golden axe would be nice...
" Wait, that's what My Exotic Farm looks like?Oh man, amazing. One of my favorite Bombcast moments.
I've always imagined it looked like in this video:
personally I dont have too much interest in watching a movie on that screen, but it is cool regardless.
I really hope Nintendo would put all VC games on the 3DS, not just the handheld ones and TG16.
Hey, with Game Gear games on the 3DS, kids will get to experience the horror that was Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Game Gear. Except with a less shittier screen. :V
I've had downloadable retro handheld games on my DS for a long time now.
I will use the Netflix function of this device a lot.
Duuude... you think Netflix will stream movies in 3D? Until Netflix releases an official Android app, I'll probably be using this for my foreseeable mobile Netflix future.
3ds netflix? who is that appealing to?
Heres hoping that they bring some japanese only games to the us with this
Netflix? What will be on the touch screen? A giant play button?
I wish they had it so you could play any Virtual Console games you purchased on the Wii would play on there too.
Portable Netflix sounds sweet. I don't know how I'd get a internet connection on the go, but still cool.
Uh, what about Virtual Boy games? You could probably buy the entire collection on 3DSware for under $100, including imports.
Looks like the train will be entering.... the next dimension.
I don't think anything will really change, though, except everything will be a little bit more "3d-ier". So look forward to a TON of crappy, shovel-ware games which will have stuff fly out of the screen at you, as the sole point of the game! Yep, that's going to be great. Just great.
I make the prediction that roughly 70% of eshop games for the first 4 months will revolve around that tired, lame gimmick alone.
Jeff Gerstmann should be on NOA's payroll at this point. His unbridled/ironic enthusiasm for Nintendo's digital stores are the only promotion they're getting for it. I see his game now; first, he gives Microsoft Game Room some free promotion. Now it's Nintendo's Wiiware/DSiware/e-Shop. He's looking for that big payout from Microsoft and Nintendo! GENIUS :)
Wait a minute, you're telling me they've got TurboGrafx and Game Gear before Game Boy Advance games?!? Nintendo...you're freaking gay. I'm not buying a 3DS until GBA games can be purchased.
I really don't think tacking on 3D to some old games is going to make them any more worthwhile.
Also, I just want SNES and GBA games..
I'm fully prepared for this eShop to be another disaster.
Great, now people can watch netflix while on the toilet. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer watching movies on something with a bigger screen and with better sound, like my home entertainment system. Also I doubt GB/GBC games will look very good, at least have GBA games on there.
What about account permanence? I get the feeling that my live account will transcend consoles. What about the Wii and 3DS?
I would love to see Actraiser remastered. :) Best launch game ever IMHO.
I also find it sad that the 3DS is getting netflix before Android phones. :(
Looks like the xpress is gaining momentum.
I just hope that Nintendo takes a chance on someone in their office who actually turns on the internet to actually design this. Looking at Nintendo's past work of online shops & websites have just been looking like it's made by the dimwit caveman over the average person of today.
Wow that is a mish mash of random features thrown in there. Netflix? I mean, ok, but why would I want to stream Netflix on a DS? Wi-fi through some AT&T system sounds interesting, but does "opt-in" mean "pay for"?
Virtual console is good, but I can't really think of too many memorable games from those systems. The GB Zelda games maybe, but even the GB Marios weren't that great IMO.
And I continue to be completely uninterested in 3D technology.
this is kinda good news. i'll finally be able to play all those sweet Game Gear games that my cousin played but i was never aloud to play.... suck on that Austin!! who needs ur precious game gear now?!
This needs some Sega Master System 3D games on it. And maybe Rad Racer and 3D Worldrunner as well.
While I may not get a 3DS at launch, I will get one soon now that I know I can also play Game Gear and TG16 games alongside Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. One thing I would like to know is whether or not Nintendo will let you re-download the TG16 games you got on the Wii Virtual Console. I didn't grab too many TG16 games on that service but I probably will if they're cross compatible like PSone games are for PSP/PS3.
I'd hope that the eShop gets some more consumer-friendly features like being able to pay exact change for games rather than buying odd amounts of points and always having leftover points. That's mostly killed my interest in buying anything else on WiiWare or VC.

I will get a 3DS eventually, and am very excited to hear that I will be able to get Game Gear and TG16 games for it, but you do raise a valid question on whether or not you have to reload the same games onto the portable system.
