Nintendo 3DS gets free 3D Video content through new service.

Nintendo announced that Nintendo 3DS owners now have a ticket to free, exclusive 3D video content. The new Nintendo Video service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood, and the 3D content can be watched without the need for special glasses. On July 27, OK Go will launch a new music video and will debut the 3D version exclusively on Nintendo Video.

In the coming weeks, Nintendo Video will feature exclusive 3D videos from Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and the world-renowned Blue Man Group, plus extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies. Specific content may vary across countries in the Americas.

To access Nintendo Video, Nintendo 3DS owners need to connect to a broadband wireless Internet service and visit the Nintendo eShop, where they can download the Nintendo Video application. Once Nintendo 3DS owners download the application, the video lineup will automatically update whenever users are within range of a wireless hotspot and have their SpotPass feature enabled, even if the system is in Sleep Mode.

The Nintendo 3DS is not a run away success yet for Nintendo. The company still sell a lot more DS consoles. The big proofing point for the Nintendo 3DS will be this coming holiday shopping season. The 3DS launched in the US in Spring. With some cool new games and bundling offers the 3DS should sell very well this fall. The Nintendo 3DS currently sells for $249.99 on Amazon.
