According to Nintendo of America, 3DS users will soon have the ability to “enjoy FREE, specially selected video content that includes 3D movie trailers, comedy clips and music videos.” This information was confirmed after speculation of Netflix streaming 3D movies to the DS was announced.
Now, Nintendo of America has not denied that Netflix could possibly stream 3D movies to the DS, however we should keep one thing in mind… Netflix does not currently offer any 3D movies in their queue. I am wondering, though, if the announcement by Nintendo will be used to test how many users view the 3D video content? If it is a test, and it goes well, I would hope that Netflix offers some of the classic 3-D movies such as Jaaws 3D and Friday the 13th part 3, although I am not sure how they would work with today’s 3D technology.
Even though this is not news that Netflix will be streaming 3D content, it is still pretty exciting to see that Nintendo is making strides to offer up content through their own means. Would you stream 3D movies to your Nintendo 3DS, or will the small screen not do a big screen movie justice?
