Sears Product Listing Says Nintendo 3DS Has A Built-In GPS

A Sears product listing claims the Nintendo 3DS features a built-in GPS. In addition to mistaking the handheld for its predecessor, the American retailer thinks Nintendo’s latest portable is compatible with many Wii games and offers digital versions of SNES titles. It also says the 3DS’ three cameras enable users to always snap clear shots. Read an excerpt from the product listing below.

The 3DS also has 3 cameras so that you can get a clear picture every time. Plus, the 3DS allows you to project your games onto images of your room, which is pretty cool if you want to incorporate real-life objects into your gaming experience.

If you want to do something besides game, the 3DS can do that, too. You have the opportunity to download games and look at online content from your Nintendo DS. Additionally, the DS has a built-in GPS, which means you don’t have to buy a separate Garmin or Tom-Tom when you take a road trip. You can also take a trip down memory lane by downloading and playing games from older systems like Game Boy Advance, as well as games from the popular NES and Super NES console systems.

If you want a handheld gaming device that is easily to personalize and fun for the whole family, then a Nintendo 3DS should be exactly what you need. With a great variety of games for just about anyone, it is a fun and light-hearted system that can also produce realistic graphics and game play. You can play many of your favorite Wii games as well as games from the classic Nintendo systems anytime you want and anywhere you are, making this the ultimate accessory for long road trips and endless flights.

Nintendo Issuing Game Reprints Without Wi-Fi Connection Logo

smash_brawl_no_wifiNintendo has begun issuing reprints of popular Wii games without the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection logo due to the online service’s worldwide closure on May 20. According to a snapshot of Super Smash Bros Brawl’s reprint for the Nintendo Wii, it no longer sports the NWC logo on the case and has an amended ESRB rating, which states that its online functionality is no longer rated by the board.

Although only one reprint has been confirmed, it’s possible Nintendo will be reprinting cases for those games that still guarantee sales. However, in the mean time the publisher has warned those who purchase games that its online service for Wii and DS games will close by placing stickers on such titles that use the service. The Wi-Fi connection will close permanently on May 20, perfectly placed for the upcoming Mario Kart 8 release.
