About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


Nintendo Unveils 3DS Wi-Fi, Netflix Functionality

Experience incredible gameplay featuring real 3D graphics with no need for special glasses. The Nintendo 3DS system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities.

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.
