Sky TV 3D content reaching Nintendo 3DS

By Updated on

Despite getting off to a slow start, the Nintendo 3DS may still prove to be a highly successful device for the company. Nintendo decided to slash the price of the unit in an attempt to ignite sales of the handheld console. There were many who felt the lack of quality content was the main reason the 3DS had a slow start to its shelf life. Now we can tell you that Sky TV 3D content is now reaching the Nintendo 3DS.

The first installments of that 3D content has now reached the console, with users of the device getting access to a trailer for an upcoming Sky TV show, Meerkats 3D. TechRadar are reporting that Nintendo first announced its deal with Sky back in January this year. It will see a growing amount of content made available to users of the 3DS.

Kicking off with the Meerkats 3D which is being made available with a video of 3D magic tricks for uses. There is set to be an increased level of content coming over the coming months with 3D clips from Eurosport, and episodes of Shaun The Sheep 3D.

Hopefully there will be more variety of Sky 3D content as time goes on, and added to the increased amount of games in the pipeline we should see the device becoming more popular. There is at least one cloud on the horizon though in the form of the upcoming PlayStation Vita. Many consumers will choose Sony’s new portable console over the 3DS, with many gamers considering the 3DS as a kid’s device.

Do you think increased 3D content will help the Nintendo 3DS?
