Nintendo teams up with Sky and Eurosport for 3DS

Two new content partners point at bright future

Nintendo has announced that Eurosport and Sky will be providing content to its new 3DS handheld console.

The content will be 'pushed' onto the system via 'SpotPass', which allows 3DS to receive wireless data even when switched off.


Sky's contribution will be limited to bitesize pieces of 3D content from its TV offering - but Nintendo Europe boss Laurent Fischer hinted that there may be more to come.

Fischer promised "many more potential partners" will arrive via SpotPass in future.
