    So far the videos that have been downloaded are just promo videos for products that aren't related to the 3DS or video gaming in general. It's like watching TV at 3:00AM when there is nothing but infomercials on.

    That's what I expected when I downloaded it. I don't want to watch commercials about car shows.

    What do you expect.
    Nintendo wants to earn some extra from the commercials.

    The only video I liked on that program was the "All is not lost" video. The rest are just annoying. Especially the Dinosaur office and the Red Bull ones.

    I too agree that it should be more like the Nintendo Channel on the Wii. Or make a Nintendo Channel for the 3DS. That'd be even better than NV.

    That's not saying much. A prostate exam would be better than Nintendo Video, lol.

    We have (what was it) Show 3d, 3d show in the eshop. Also something they can have some remotely good videos on there. Like that galaxy video.

    Some of the videos are good, but I wish they just had them on the eShop.

    The 3D videos on the eShop stream perfectly. Why should we have to download them? Especially if they're just going to be deleted.

    How many? I've only had my 3DS for a few days, so I'm basing the "Nintendo Video < prostate exam" on very little data.

    I wish we could save them. I hate that we can't save the ones we like.

    I wish it wasn't COMPLETELY region locked. It would be nice if it actually worked on any proxy.

    The most interesting stuff I've seen on Nintendo Video were those 7 Minute CG Cartoons... Oscar's Oasis or something like that. Aside from that, I've seen that "All is not lost" Music Video (Which was OK), a trailer for the Glee Movie (shoot me now lol), and a "the first ever 3D recording of a orchestra" (SERIOUSLY, IT'S AN ORCHESTRA!! FAN-F**KING-TASTIC! Too bad you can't HEAR 3D.)
