Nintendo Announces Netflix For 3DS

Nintendo had their GDC 2011 keynote this morning, and a few new things will be coming to the 3DS this May.

Netflix will be coming to the device, and will have access to every movie on the instant watch catalog. The movies will play in 2D not 3D. Nintendo seems to be really pushing the fact that, Netflix allows viewers to start viewing a movie on your 3DS, then pick up right where you left off on your big screen.

It’s good see Nintendo is really trying to promote the 3DS as not just a gaming device. The 250 dollar price tag might be justified after all. What do you think?
