Nintendo readies iTunes-like app store for 3DS

Update to bring web browsing too

Security for virtualized datacentres

Nintendo is to bring an iTunes-style app store to the Nintendo 3DS.

Dubbed the eShop, the store will allow owners of the handheld console the opportunity to buy and download not only old Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, GameGear and TurboGrafx games but also "3D Classics" - titles recoded to take advantage of the 3DS' auto-stereoscopic display.

The store will be joined by the DSiWare service. This will be handy for DSi owners who want to upgrade to the 3DS, as it will allow them to copy DSIWare titles onto the new console.

The app store will be added to the handheld toward the end of May, and will be released globally, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime announced this week.

The update will also add a web browser to the handheld.

The Nintendo 3DS arrives in the UK on 25 March. We have ours now - watch out for Reg Hardware's full review. ®
