    So it's available with a firmware update on day one, cool! It was previously stated these features wouldn't be.

    Given how shit the UK launch lineup looks right now there had better be something pretty fuckin' good on this day one. What happened to the good old days of console launches like the N64/SNES? When the big names were out in force to show you what a console could do with its best and brightest, rather than showing up months later, almost at random?

    That's awesome!


    I can't wait to see what kind of 3DS Ware will show up. I don't know about the browser though...

    "Demos and trailers will also make their way onto the service."

    The only thing legit about a flash cart is homebrew now.

    Let's see whether they'll do the same as with the DSi, giving free points and very few games worth getting [​IMG] . Seriously though, I wonder if Link's Awakening will be available from day one too (and what about the 3d movies? will we be able to get them via the shop too? would seem cheaper then buying a card everytime).

    This gave me the silly image of a coin slot on the side of the 3DS [​IMG] .

    I wonder who made the web browser this time, Opera or Nintendo in-house. With the Wii and DSi, those systems had Opera browsers and it would be nice to see the partnership continue. I just hope that the 3DS browser has flash support.

    no?
    demos usually show only good parts of games.
    NOT TO MENTION flashcarts save me from carrying around a bunch of games. if they have an install game to sd card, then only legit uses for a cart is homebrew.

    they should do that
    like with pc
    you buy a cd and install it and stash the cd away
    they could make it one time use or two time use or require a key
    only problem is the need for a super huge amount of storge
    with the abillity for games to get to 8gb

    Wow that pretty cool, cheers for the info!
    Pretty sure im going to pick the game up on launch anyways.

    Shame theres no current info on the 3ds browser. Would be nice to know about flash, speed increased and new features (If there are any). The dsi browser is alright for quick use, but
    the lack of features is just annoying after a while.

    Man the eShop is going to be cool!!
    STOKED!!!

    Sure seems confirmed for eShop.
    Could just be trailers, but I wouldn't put it past them to have a netflix like system rather than having movies on cart's.

    I didn't know Street Fighter was a developer.

    In all seriousness, I practically only use Ryu, so this is kinda awesome for me (although I'm trying to hold out until the first 3DS rehash).
