It's cool that the Nintendo 3DS has full online support, but that sucks when you have no access. Nintendo is looking to help out a bit on that front by offering free Wi-Fi at 25,000 locations nationwide. That means shopping centers, stores, coffee shops, airports and more will let you go oinline with your 3DS.

Nintendo has formed an alliance with AT&T, Best Buy, and the Simon Property Group (a shopping mall mega-group) to pipe free internet to your 3D portable. If you're in a mall, near an AT&T hotspot, or near one of 1,000 Best Buy stores, check your 3DS -- you'll probably be online.

This all kicks off on June 7th. Thank you, Nintendo!

After less than week, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold over one million

According to a statement from Nintendo, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold one million copies during its launch in Japan. It's great news that the series can still create such a buzz and sell that much product. The only thing that bums me out is that by the time the New 3DS hits in the US, all of the people I know will make the switch over to Smash Wii U full-time. Nintendo [Twitter]more
