3DS Video Player Coming Soon

3DS Video Player Coming Soon on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The 3DS firmware update is due this month, but won't contain a video player - according to Nintendo it will follow shortly.

The first major 3DS firmware update will contain an internet browser and first eShop downloadable games, but will lack a dedicated video application to watch 3D content and TV.

According to Official Nintendo Magazine the app will be released in the "near future", letting 3DS owners tap into sponsored content - trailers, music videos and 3D features by hooking up to your own Wi-Fi or a compatible hotspot.

Nintendo of Europe announced last year that they will be partnering with EuroSport and Sky 3D to bring exclusive content to the service.

What would you like to see from the 3DS video service?

So it's not an app for watching your own videos sitting on your SD card. Just as I thought Smilie

Is Netflix going to be available on June 6th or is that coming later too?

If they'd let you watch your own content, it would be used for piracy a lot. So I guess I understand the choice they made.

I'm guessing it will only be a matter of time before someone makes a fix to allow viewing your own videos.

Hopefully someone will make a 3rd party app for watching your own videos and try to get it put on the eStore. Though, I don't think Nintendo will approve of this.
