3DS e-shop

by Bandit 1 Comments

The big 3DS update that will give people access to all of the 3DS' new network services such as e-shop and web browser has been confirmed to still be coming worldwide in May, but the date is still a mystery.
Nintendo has also announced that Excitebike will be released for FREE for a limited time when the e-shop launches and will be part of the "3D Classics" category.  This, they hope, should get people more excited about what the 3DS has to offer.


Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has also made comments on the state of the 3DS.  He feels that the 3DS' sales haven't been as high as they were hoping after the second week it was available.  The 3DS launch was the most successful handheld game console launch in history for any brand.  It just didn't stay that way.  Sales have dropped considerably and although it is still one of the best selling consoles week to week it just isn't what Nintendo had expected.  Iwata says this is due to the fact that people don't understand 3DS' magic.  They don't understand what all the features do or how to use them.  It also has something to do with the current lack of killer software.  They plan on launching a new advertising campaign to address these issues and to creat more hype for what's to come.  


Nintendo regrets "going it alone" with the Wii.  What they mean by this is they planned all of their advertising themselves and didn't advertise 3rd parties well enough.  To rectify this they are going to use a new company for advertising and make sure every one is heard and that people know what's going on.  In the coming months we will see these new directions and see how they work out.  Wii would like to play no more. Wii mean business now.
