E3 2010: Nintendo 3DS Features Software Installs

There’s no doubt that the 3DS is a capable piece of hardware. It’s a device jam-packed with many impressive current-gen technologies, including a high-resolution top screen, a motion sensor and a gyroscope. However, didn’t stop there: they also included software installs.

According to , a Japanese business magazine — because of the inclusions of software installs — gamers will be able to install multiple full games onto the handheld’s internal memory unit. Installed games can then be selected from a menu screen.

Nikkei notes that due to this feature, there’ll be no need to swap cartridges; when outside of the home, you won’t need to carry game cartridges with you. However, Nikkei didn’t detail the number of games that could be installed, or the process of installing these games.
