Here’s your first look at Nintendo’s eShop. Or at least, the Japanese version. You might think it looks a little bulky, but remember, this console has a touch-screen controller, meaning the whole thing is going to be about a million times faster to get around than Microsoft or Sony’s offerings.

eShop [Nintendo]


  • Australian version: Exactly the same as the US store, but there’s only half as many games and they cost 50% more than the US offerrings!

    And if the 3DS online store is anything to go by, this will be a slow and cumbersome system that works significantly slower than PSN or XBLA. Wii was terrible, 3DS was terrible, why will this be any different?

  • If it doesn’t need to wait 3 minutes to load after click each link like 3ds then yes it will be good. Nice looking UI sleek and simple

  • Lukes ‘articles’ are always 90% opinion so yeah, cant wait untill I can actually read some NEWS about the online service o.O
