The Nintendo DS Broswer Set to Hit U.S. Shores this June


The Nintendo DS web browser, which was released in Japan nearly a year ago, will finally be hitting the U.S. in two short months. Set to retail for a rather costly $34.99, this browser will be supported strictly by Opera and will be light on the extra features. Disappointingly, video won’t be supported (PDF support), and forget listening to any tunes on your DS – this baby won’t support sound either (then again, sound quality on the DS isn’t exactly top-notch).

Nintendo is once again really milking gamers with the release of their mediocre DS web browser. Not only is it lacking several key features, but it’s overpriced and, according to my friend (who imported the Japanese version awhile back), runs rather slow, too. Although it’s a noble idea and an interesting device (that I might pick up once it inevitably hits the bargain bin), the small list of features supported combined with a sluggish speed make something that anyone should be weary of purchasing.

Not very exciting, is it then? Nah. Better browse through a PocketPc methinks.

This has been out in the UK for a while now (I know, it's a miracle, we got something before you guys!) but I've been purposely avoiding it because, to be frank, it's useless.

I hardly use the PSP browser as it is but at least that's built in.

(Blogger should have an edit comment function!)

I would be passing on that myself.. I would like a portable internet browser thingy, but this is not what I'm looking for...
