I have been putting off getting a 3DS – but it seems that each week I find a new reason to get one. First it was just the 3D that drew me in. Next it was Netflix and the hopes of 3D movies streaming right into my hands.
So, here comes the streaming 3D video content; not from Netflix, but from Nintendo’s own video streaming service. Topping off this announcement are the details of EXCLUSIVE 3D content that will only be available via Nintendo Video.
Nintendo 3DS owners now have a ticket to free, exclusive 3D video content. The new Nintendo Video service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood, and the 3D content can be watched without the need for special glasses. On July 27, OK Go will launch a new music video and will debut the 3D version exclusively on Nintendo Video.
In the coming weeks, Nintendo Video will feature exclusive 3D videos from Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and the world-renowned Blue Man Group, plus extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies. Specific content may vary across countries in the Americas.
To access Nintendo Video, Nintendo 3DS owners need to connect to a broadband wireless Internet service and visit the Nintendo eShop, where they can download the Nintendo Video application. Once Nintendo 3DS owners download the application, the video lineup will automatically update whenever users are within range of a wireless hotspot and have their SpotPass™ feature enabled, even if the system is in Sleep Mode.
