    In a recent interview with Kotaku, Reggie stated that Netflix and the 3D movie service are both coming in the summer. He also mentioned that they "thought there would be a tighter gap between launch and the first network update". He also elaborated a bit on the 3D movie service stating that there would be 3D movie trailers and Nintendo-curated content, that they "candidly, helped finance." An excerpt from the interview is available below.[/p]

    I'm glad to hear that Netflix and the 3D movie service is coming during the summer. I'm looking forward to Netflix. Not so much the 3D movie service.

    By Canadian summer, you mean Australian winter right? In which case, YEAH! Can't wait for the video service, it'll save me so much time instead of logging in to my computer.

    I'm just going to assume that'll be late August.

    I'm still looking forward to it. With Netflix's Stream now including every series of Power Rangers, V.R. Troopers, and Big Bad Beetleborgs, I'll have a lot to watch on the stream and it'll be nice being able to watch a movie on my own device while my family whores the comps and 360's.


    I'm interested in whatever 3D movie service Nintendo will have though.

    Good news, hopefully this service is actually good and not laggy as hell because of wireless connectivity.

    ...so no 3rd party 3D movies? nothing explicitly said like that?

    Netflix is all well and good, but if all that's gonna be available in 3D is movie trailers and Teletubbies 3D (god forbid, who knows what Ninty financed... wait, old school Mario movies? :shock:), then i totally lost the point of it all. :/

    ...i so~ wanted to watch Avatar 3D on the 3DS, as i missed out on the cinema/imax.

    Netflix is only laggy when you have a shitty internet. On my Evo 4G, previos PS3, 360, Wii, and wireless laptop, it was never laggy. All with wifi.

    Let's just hope that Netflix can get their act together before they start to upload Star Trek next month. We both know that Power Rangers pretty much broke Netflix last week LMAO! [​IMG]

    ....Fuck Netflix.

    It's like they're saying, ''FUCK YOU other countries, only certain countries I chose from will be available to view!''

    Yeah I can't register to Netflix.

    NO ITS NOT!!!! its hard enough to start selling your product sold in ONE COUNTRY!!!!! they have laws and stuff and costs to cover that dont allow it to be worth doing.


    they shouldnt be forced to bring their service to countrys they dont want to. HOW WOULD U LIKE IT IF THE PRESIDENT CALLED U AND SAID YOUR NEW JOB WAS IN IRAN AND U HAD TO GO THERE FOR WORK??? dont make them go to other countrys if u dont want to go to other countrys

    I'm more interested in the 3D movie service than netflix. The 3DS may be the closest thing I have to a 3D television for a while.
