"Nintendo 3DS will be the most connected Nintendo device ever, with its ability to link people via local wireless connections, while at the same time connecting them to people and content worldwide via hotspot connectivity," Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said 25th annual Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco.
Nintendo announced it will do this primarily by making 10,000 WiFi hotspots available for 3DS gamers to connect, play games and view content. The WiFi will be available in selected airports, cafes and restaurants. Subsequently, it also announced a deal with Netflix, where members will be able to stream movies and other content on their Nintendo 3DS systems."
