The Nintendo 3DS lets users view 3-D content without special glasses, and it will be available Mar. 27 in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $249.99.
At the end of May, Nintendo will provide Nintendo 3DS owners with a wireless system update to activate the Nintendo eShop. This update also makes it easy to get connected, so people who opt in to the system's SpotPass service will tell their Nintendo 3DS systems to automatically connect to AT&T hot spots all across the country.
This summer, Nintendo 3DS will incorporate Netflix functionality. Netflix members who have an unlimited plan, which starts at $7.99 a month, can access a broadband wireless Internet connection and instantly stream movies and TV shows directly to their Nintendo 3DS systems, similar to how the service is used on the Wii console. People can start watching a movie via Netflix on their Wii systems at home and then pick up the same movie later from a different location using their Nintendo 3DS systems.
