Netflix Now Available on the Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo and Netflix are rolling out a new app today which will let any Netflix subscriber watch videos on a Nintendo 3DS.

It’s expected to show up momentarily in Nintendo’s eShop, but since Netflix is limited to US and Canada at the moment anyone outside the region might not see it. The videos are still2D, of course; Netflix doesn’t stock any 3D videos in its streaming library.

Netflix seems to have beaten all the major ebookstores to the punch with this app. Say what you will about gaming handhelds,but they are still a sizable part of the gadget market. Isn’t it about time that Amazon, B&N, et al. notice this and start thinking about reading apps?

I don’t think it’s so absurd. People are already reading on smartphones with 3″ and 4″ screens. Size clearly is not an issue.
