[Review] NDS Download station at EB Games & Game stores.
Hey all, if you hadnt heard awhile back. Game stores like EB Games and so were to get a item called the "Nintendo DS Download Station" which would allow people who are in the store with their DS to be able to goto the "Download fun" section and be able to download various game demos and movies.
I saw them have it in stock about a week ago, however he didnt set it up till last night, so today I brought my DS over and tried it out.
Signal range to download was indeed limited to inside the store only.
You download a file that lets you access the massive list of games/movies for the DS to look at.
I saw Metriod, Kario Kart, Brain game, Pokemon and quite a few others.
The NDS lady told EB reps that the game downloaded or so HAVE to be played in the store and not traditional game demo downloads where it stayed till you turned it off.. she claims it has to stay in signal range.. I am not sure if this is true.. I walked back to my kiosk after I left EB.. still had Pokemon loaded.. so cant confirm this..
Either way, the DS Download play is very interesting and if you wanna try out a certain game or see if a movie is out for it, go for it! Fun to see the NDS have something nice out.
Just adds one more reason that Nintendo is winning the handheld wars in my eyes.. PSP is nice.. but NDS is offering abit more right now for a standard system. (Note STANDARD.. not talking homebrew here.. otherwise PSP wins that war)
Anyways, just wanted to point out that yes, I have tried it, it works, and its fun. =)
