Shaun the Sheep and Infendo Giveaway!

Recently Nintendo entered into a partnership with Aardman Animations, the creative genius behind Wallace and Gromit.  As a result, the Nintendo 3DS will feature a brand new Shaun the Sheep 3D adventure, available for free, via SpotPass.  The free episodes began on March 7th, 2012 and are expected to continue across 15 free episodes in the UK.

For some, this might be old news or even not applicable if they live in North America.  However, I think that this is very exciting news.  The 3DS is a small gaming system with a lot of potential, maybe more than we even realize.  The 3DS is packed full of features that can be applied to many different media types.  I was speaking to someone the other day, and they mentioned that the only thing missing is an internal cellular phone option (or even skype **hint hint**). With all the available options, why not take it to the next level?  Sure the PSP gave us the option to buy movies made specifically for the device, unfortunately it was not as popular as expected.  Why buy a movie for your PSP, Blue Ray, DVD, VCR, and Beta Max when you can buy a DVD/Blue Ray combo pack instead.  Nintendo is doing this the right way by providing original content that people will be willing and eager to watch.  Of course, not all content will be right for everyone, and there will be some trial and error.

Partnerships like the one with Aardman Animation is a huge step in the right direction.  It gives Nintendo an opportunity to showcase original programming, with existing studios that have a cult following.  I can’t wait to see what direction this takes!

    Just checked Nintendo Video, there’s a “Coming Soon” video for Shaun the Sheep in the US, so it is applicable stateside.

  2. I must express thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this type of trouble. After surfing around through the the net and meeting notions which are not beneficial, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing without the presence of strategies to the issues you’ve fixed all through this website is a critical case, as well as ones that might have negatively affected my career if I hadn’t encountered your web site. Your main mastery and kindness in handling all the stuff was very useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. I can also now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this professional and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to recommend your blog to any individual who wants and needs direction about this area.
