Seriously why is this built into the 3DS? What's it for?
Maybe iR controllers? But I'm not sure why they woundn't just use Bluetooth for that...
Cheaper? It probably going be use for something other than pokemon.
It's there so that when hackers finally run homebrew in 3DS mode, someone can write a TV remote control app.
Cheaper than what? It and normal DS systems can do wireless communications, so maybe it's there just so some things can transfer faster.
Kinda like the PSP 1000.
Cheaper than bluetooth. No?
Wouldn't Bluetooth be cheaper, and more efficent?
It was the first thing that bothered me... Like WTF is THIS thingy for?
But basically I came to the conlusion that as for now, it's nothing that, something to wonder about. x)
I haven't seen IR usage since the GBA's old days... ^^
GBC i think you meant.
Its purposes are sinister.
irshell ftw lol
they might do what they did with the pokemon games, except having the IR built in the system instead of on the cartride
It's purpose was simply to start this thread.

This is probably hopeful thinking but, doesn't the Wii's sensor bar use IR? You think it could be used in, one way or another, with the Wii? I mean, I'd think wireless connections would be easier, but who knows.
This is kinda neat. We haven't seen IR actually built into a Ninty handheld console since GBC.
You, ma'am, are a genius! I sure hope this is true.
EDIT: But on second thought, this probably won't work.
I'm not sure about that, the way the Wii works is with an IR camera in the wiimote, I doubt the 3DS has a camera behind that panel. I would assume it's a more standard IR diode/receiver setup.
But i could be wrong.
You're right. The Wiimote receives the IR signal from the sensor bar and then communicates back to the Wii through Bluetooth.
Since the 3DS doesn't have Bluetooth (I think) there goes that theory.
