The Nintendo 3Ds certainly is not doing as well as the Japanese gaming giant had anticipated, but that does not mean it is a failure by any means. No sir, it has sold a fair number of units, albeit pale in comparison to its non-3D predecessor, the Nintendo DS Lite. What we do know is, the camera on the 3DS is not only capable of snapping 3D photos, but you can also shoot 3D video.
10 minutes – that is all you have, which isn’t long by any shot, but it is still impressive for a relatively small piece of hardware. The Nikkei reported this, alongside the release of a new update for the 3DS that will deliver 3D video filming functionality to your doorstep as well as the ability to upload clips to video sharing websites such as YouTube. Do expect to see this free update making its way across servers worldwide sometime at the end of November this year onwards. Would the ability to shoot video in 3D (albeit in rather low resolution compared to a dedicated 3D capable camcorder) sway your mind in purchasing the Nintendo 3DS?
