Nintendo was being rather unclear about exactly when we would start seeing some of the features of Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo has stepped out to clear up exactly what will and won’t be available at launch.
Despite the previous reports, including ours, the internet browser and the E-Stole will be available at launch. But not right out of the box. You’ll have to perform a system update that will open these features. But they will be available to you day one.
3D Video recording still won’t be available at launch, but Nintendo plans on adding it in the future via a system update as well. It’s still unclear whether or not you’ll be able to transfer over DSiWare titles day one though.
So when you get home after your long wait in line for the 3DS, you’ll get to do a system update! Hopefully it has like a cool 3D animation to keep you entertained.
