3DS vs iOS?

Starting from Monday, Nintendo will release the much anticipated eShop for the 3DS. This service will allow users to purchase additional content such as games, apps, etc. However, iOS has been doing this since the initial stages of the iPhone. And they’ve been pretty successful with it too.

According to Nintendo, prices will start from $1.99. A little far-fetched considering Apple’s apps can be priced as low as $0.99. Also, actually downloading a a game on the DSiWare store, as far as I can remember took forever. Perhaps it was because Nintendo offers their online service for free.

Hence, this why I am very sceptical that eShop will be even considered a threat to iOS (having seen what the WiiWare shop/DSiWare shop functioned like).

Games such as the rehashed version of the 80s classic, Excitebike along with the 3D Pokedex will be hitting the eShop in 3D for free starting this Monday. Leave a comment of what you think.
