I don't really care so long as it's not mandatory.
It would be nice to have this especially for online multiplayer
That would suck. Since 4G is already avaible in some country's. And why use older technology when making a brand new console?
Because even the previous version of that same technology doesn't have a network over the whole world? I've seen a lot of people talk about the problen that is the 3G network not being available everywhere. Why use something that can't connect everywhere?
Man! I remember when gaming systems didn't have firmware updates and a bunch of online baloney. I really miss those days. I think that may be why my interest in gaming in general is waning. They're just too much "all up in your business" now with the online crap and I hate it. I'm just glad the DSlite doesn't have firmware updates and the online abilities are just secondary for the system's main purpose.
I still don't bother playing games online even though I'm perfectly capable of doing so if I wanted. Gaming is my private guilty pleasure that I prefer to keep to myself.
I've become an outdated and obsolete gamer who's heyday has come and gone many years ago.
The winds of change really blows and I'm being swept away by the gusts. Won't be too much longer now....a few months, a year, maybe two.....and I'll just be completely gone and forgotten. sigh.....
if 3G is coming to the 3DS and the PSP2, they should know that the microSIMs are invading, thanks to iPhone 4. I mean, if they go for microSIMS, not all of the countries use that kind of SIMS. I mean, they MUST think before implementing 3G connections on handheld consoles.
I am with you, brother. I still rather play my SNES over my 360 any day.
Because there's such a huge difference other than marketing.
802.11 Wi-Fi can't connect everywhere either.
Besides, this is NTT DoCoMo's propaganda, nothing else. They would definitely profit from several million new 3G devices out there, so they're trying to push it onto every new gadget coming out. It's not certain the 3DS will even have 3G, and even if it did, it would definitely keep the 802.11 Wi-Fi LAN as well.
I think adding another connection option would be very welcome.
Nintendo always does that. look at the wii
If you read the rest of the article they're really big iphone fanboys.
Also considering most unlimited plans are 5gb in the US it would be really easy to go over that with a game console.
Man, yesterday was big about rumors/things-that-Might-be-developed...
Really hope these devices come out for the holiday season (even if it's the PSP-4000 instead of the PSP2)!
How can an unlimited plan be 5GB? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of being "unlimited"?
In any case, I don't like this idea... even if it's optional, the idea of requiring people to pay a monthly fee for access to data is ridiculous. I wish my city would jump to it and just go with a municipal wireless network city-wide.
"Fair use" clause. It's only unlimited if you promise not to actually go over 5GB. You should read the fine print in these contracts, it's the finest piece of legalese bullshit you've ever seen.
Basically, they give you "unlimited" traffic provided you never go over 5GB. Go figure.
Yeah, I hate it when it's like that.
*Note: "Unlimited" does not in fact mean unlimited.
3g is important esp for high speed surfing and browsing... esp with the rise of youtube and facebook
though another great reason for it would undoubtedly be its free roam, problem again undoubtedly is the price and who else can offer such a service for these consoles
Please, tell me you're not serious! Do you even know what range 4G manage to keep any speed? Also there is no reason what so ever to use 4G as long as you're not doing really have stuff like downloading in high speed. You will be happy to have a steady speed with a 4G in the innercity as long as not many other user are using it. 3G is fine for gaming and surfing the web.
