Nintendo soar into The Cloud

With so much news surrounding the price drop of the 3DS, annoying early adopters and pleasing those who waited, UK users have something to cheer about as Nintendo join The Cloud. The alliance will provide those within the UK who own a 3DS access to over 5000 various hotspots.
“Cloud partnership represents another exciting step that will continue to expand its appeal and encourage owners to take their Nintendo 3DS systems with them wherever they go, offering different and unique experiences every day,” said Nintendo UK marketing director Dawn Paine. Active at the time this was written the hotspots allow gamers to access content via the Nintendo Spotpass service, eShop or simply browse the net.
“Nintendo is a fantastic addition to our list of strategic partners and site owners who are making the most of Wi-Fi’s potential to give other customers a better entertainment experience,” adds Steve Nicholson, The Clouds managing directors told Gamesindustry.
“If gamers are going to play outside their home, it’s essential they have a fast and reliable internet connection. This is what Wi-Fi offers compared to a technology such as 3G, which struggle to handle really rich data hungry video content.”
