    What is the possibilities of free content along lines of lets say youtube, skype, IM engine of some kind, or just free apps altogether kinda like The Apple App Store that has a shit load of free app. BUT more importantly, is there a large possibility of youtube on this device. or does the web browser actually use flash?

    It could happen, but it's unlikely. If anything, we'll see it years from now, if at all.

    The Web Browser doesn't use Flash iirc. I'm sure most of this is possible but how likely is it? I really don't know [​IMG]

    I think he meant it in the form of an independent app.

    Did I say something wrong? I was answering the Web Browser question and saying there's always the possibility of most of the apps he speaks of but how likely they are to happen I can't really say.

    I'd love to see these too but I have no clue if it'll happen since I haven't heard a word about any of this.

    we'll start seeing these things once the 3DS gets hacked. until then, i HIGHLY DOUBT Nintendo letting YouTube and Skype (Microsoft owned Skype now, IIRC) on the 3DS, let alone officially. They wouldn't even let Flash on their browser, and how many browsers have they made for the handheld already? Three, from the DS Browser with slot2 RAM pack, to the DSi Browser to the 3DS browser, all Flash-free.

    if people haven't gotten the message by now, then i dunno. but as far as i see it, Flash won't happen.

    It's certainly possible. A video-game developer company could decide to make a 3DSWare (my bet is on Nnooo) that has the ability to access Skype, Youtube among other things. Although, I haven't read the license so there may be some exceptions.

    If you're referring to free content in general, Nintendo has already gave away a fair bit. And Flipnote Studio 3DS will also be coming.

    • Nintendo Video
    • Pokedex 3D
    • Ambassador Games (for those who purchased it before price-drop)

    Ah, it appears developers are not allowed to make a Youtube or Skype app. Damn it, Nintendo.

    Hmmm Thats surprising. i mean if they made they're device even more sociable wouldn't that draw in all sorts of different customers. i mean if you saw the Wii U there was video chat! I wonder who will do that HMMMM. ANd Anyways the 3DS has netflix so thats means the 3DS can stream movies so why not 10 min vids?
