Netflix is coming to the 3DS; the wait is over. Sort of. The wait is over if you just wanted Netflix on your 3DS, really, really badly. If you wanted to watch 3D things on your 3DS, you still have some waiting to take care of. The free Netflix app is available for download today and can be used with an unlimited streaming account much in the same way a number of your other devices can. In fact, with the lack of 3D content at launch, the 3DS can be used in exactly the same way that a number of your other devices can. It is quite unlikely that this Netflix deal was going to sell any 3DSes with or without 3D functionality from the get go, but when it eventually shows up, it should serve to sweeten the deal for previous owners.
Quoth the Nintendo press release:
The new Netflix application for Nintendo 3DS displays movies and TV episodes in 2D on the system’s upper screen. Users will soon have access to an additional library of select movies that can be viewed in 3D without the need for special glasses.
