    I read somewhere that Nintendo was just sticking to 3D Pictures. I could be wrong though.

    EDIT: Nothing on 3D Video Capture on Nintendo's site.

    An interview said they might consider it in the future.

    What reason would it be if they can't? I do no see why it isn't a feature now. :/

    Maybe they want to release as 3DSWare. It's all about the munneh.

    I don't know the exact reason, but there's multiple possibilities.
    • Technical limitations.
      Capturing two video streams at once is kinda' hard on various parts of the system. While one stream should be doable, people will probably be disappointed if it doesn't capture in 3D, so they need to wait and develop more software tech.
    • Human limitations.
      It takes time and good programmers to make new features for a system. Good programmers don't grow on trees, the ones Nintendo has are probably busy with more important projects (do note the 3DS doesn't even have all it's initial features so far, let alone addon ones).
    • Goals.
      Nintendo may not want their system to be used to capture 3D tits? Fuck if I know for sure, but it's only released in Japan right now so we have to consider their culture.

    I had a really good question about the 3DS earlier but I can't remember it for the life of me. God damn.

    We're gonna need to update the FAQ soon. 3D Video capture, and possible Flashcarts that work on the 3DS.

    On a side note, Dealextreme got in a bunch of 3DS accessories. Pretty cheap, and one of thier cases looks pretty awesome (Only like 5.40$)

    for europe you can just write down €249.99
    all dutch stores stores sell it for that price(except dixons, they sell it for €239.99 and 1000 airmiles which amounts to the same)

    You can't right yet but as soon as they get all the online 3DSware/DSIware turned on then you will be able to.

    You need to download the transfer app from dsiware on your DSi, then start it from the 3DS.
    ...This is in May by the way.
    Can you wait?
    Good, because you have to.

    i have a question about region lock... are all games region locked?
    i want to play some japanese games and consider buying a japanese one, if i do this european games won't work, right? or does it depend on the game? if so, is it possible japan only games will be region free?
    i want to buy it already but i'm completely lost. ._.

    It's not forced region locking, but I imagine 99.9999% of games will region lock.
    It allows the publisher to get more money from the richer regions.

    I have a question. Why can't I connect to the internet? All wireless devices in my house work except the 3DS. It says that it's connecting and shows a blue signal shooting at the router for like 15 seconds then creates a red X. I tried every channel on the internet (1-11) and turned off the router Firewall. Still no luck. I also tried something I saw on Nintendo forums
    . Someone help me out, please.
