The free Internet browser can show 3D images on sites that are specifically designed to show 3D images.

As many of you will already know, the browser will also be available to use as you play meaning you'll be able to check out game guides if you are stuck in a game.

You can stop playing your Nintendo 3DS game and go to the browser by pressing the Home button and then resume their game when you're finished browsing.

You can also use the browser to download 3D pictures from the Internet and save them to your SD Card. Or you can upload ones you have taken with the Nintendo 3DS cameras.

When you're using the internet browser, you'll be able to zoom in on JPEG images by tapping and holding.

Earlier today Nintendo Japan confirmed some more information about the 3DS browser. We learned that the 3DS internet Browser will not support plug ins like Flash or PDF.

However, you'll be able to store up to 64 favourites.

As for images, the browser can directly display 3D picture data in the MPO format. Compatible image formats include MPG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP and ICO.

The browser will also have parental controls and parents will be able to limit internet use through the 3DS system settings.

To access to 3DS eStore you'll need to perform the recommended system update. Nintendo 3DS users can simply start the "System Settings" from the Home Menu, select "Other Settings" and scroll the page right to select "System Update."

I'm still pretty excited about the canvas element being supported.

No mention of the video player yet. I'm VERY scared. Nintendo is so antiquated when it comes to these things.

So the video confirms that Excitebike will have the retro graphics......SWEET~
yay.gif



AND WHY care about Flash?? There are Laptops, Macs etc for a reason you know...

Flash is never a selling point for a hand-held.

It's handy if I wanna watch a quick video without having to boot those other devices. Obviously it isn't the selling point but it's quite nifty.

Honestly, I'm more worried about the absence of some of the more prominent HTML5 features.
Having a dedicated game handheld that could also work wonders with the web would have resulted with me carrying around one less device, but I'm not really complaining.

It's actually pretty handy playing a game on steam and you get stuck. Better than a text guide.

The thing is if Nintendo caught the bull by the balls and put utub content in 3D in consumers hands, they would sell 20 times as many devices, and kick start 3D into actually having some content.

No.
You can just upload photos directly from SD card is all, no Nintendo facebook site, just your own blog sites can accept your images from the browser/3ds camera.

Looking at the fact that the Internet browser will be used even when in the midst of a game, I sorta expected nothing

I think i read somewhere that for a system to support flash, the company has to pay through the nose to get the license from Adobe. So Nintendo would rather make their own apps to do stuff for free.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
