Nintendo 3DS Will Get Streaming Netflix And Free WiFi Access From AT&T

By Chris Scott Barr

If you’re planning to invest in a 3DS later this month, there are a couple of things that might interest you. First off, if you’re the kind of person that enjoys watching movies on a tiny screen, then you’ll love this. Nintendo has announced that you’ll be able to stream the entire Netflix library to your newest handheld gaming console. But how often are you going to be connected to the internet when you’re not at home?

It seems you’ll have more WiFi options than you might have thought. The company has teamed up with AT&T to give you free access to over 10,000 WiFi hotspots. The unfortunate part is that neither of these features will be hitting at launch. You’ll need to wait until a software update hits sometime in May.
