Movies on the 3DS

#1Gama_manPosted 6/21/2010 9:44:10 AM
On E3 they said it would be able to play movies such as "how to train your dragon", but they didn't realy speak much of it afterwards, What's your opinion on this?

I think that it's pretty cool.

There's not that many movies that do 3D. I'm hoping we can have non-3D movies as well.

They lured the other two with the idea of casual games being all the rage, then when they fell for it, BAM, hardcore games out the ass. - Zanbi's thoughts on E3

Obviously, we will, you just have to use the slider thing to turn off the 3D.

There's also the question on how will they allow movies on the 3DS. Is it gonna be on the downloadable store or can we upload via SD Card?

I'm assuming (so no official statement is behind this whatsoever) that it will be able to run off of you SD card. So the 3DS reads .mp4/.divx/.mpeg/.avi <--- as far as I know, those are the most popular vid files.

It's like Netflix except 3D movies only and it's hosted by Nintendo. I'm sure there will be a way to play your movies though..,

I believe they said it's still in the works, but they did have 3D trailers running on the show floor at E3 to showcase it. They're probably still in negotiation, and so far it's only with Disney, Dreamworks, and Warner Brothers. Of course, if this works out, then you might see other companies join the bandwagon.

My guess would be that it will be downloadable content, which will keep the consumer happy, since it will be a low cost method to see high quality 3D movies in their home; and it should also keep the companies happy since it can be easily set up to lock the movie to the 3DS to which it was downloaded, to prevent piracy.
