    Are you sure those are in yen?
    Does that mean they killed the coin system?

    The coin system was never intended on being used on the eShop. Real money, bro.

    I'll take a Rockman Dash and a Sonic & Tails 2. Thanks.


    That was one of the first things known about the e-Shop

    The coin system is for in game stuff, extra costumes and such. It's just a way to reward physical activity/always keeping your 3DS on you. You walk around with your 3DS and get coins, we give you your choice of in game extra stuff. The plan for the e-shop has always been to use real currency, it's to remove the confusion with prices or something like that. I welcome the change, cut's out the middle man (points).

    It was in famitsu.
    It's not unbelievable, since we knew most of it.
    all it adds are more concrete stuff like game names. Stuff that famitsu would know.

    It's about time.

    Not too happy about the switch, I wanted to buy some Nintendo Points in advance for this.

    3D Video Player? Does want.

    I was wondering about this too. Seems weird, but remember this list is for Japan only.

    Do you mean DSi Points? Cuz they never planned on allowing us to buy 3DSware with them. And buying games with Play Coins is just STUPID because then Ninty would never make profit.

    The 3D Video Player is listed in "Demos", so it might be just a new video, like the OK Go one (that wasn't in the 3DS before the last update). Actually, they warn you that this video changes with each update so it's probably just this.

    They omitted both video recording and the browser on this list, I hope this is just partial. After the 'OtherOS' fiasco from Sony I always think those companies are teasing and messing with us when they promise something. =p
