    I was thinking about the 3DS and how the Home button will enable you to look on the internet for walkthroughs, and I thought of something: how will people do video walkthroughs for the 3DS games? There's a slim chance of emulators, but it sounds like Nintendo is cracking down on piracy. Is there anything you can plug in to handhelds to record it, like this?

    By the way, 100th post!

    It looks like that's what the woman in the Japanese 3DS trailer is doing when should goes online to look at a Nintendogs page halfway through a playing the game. Most people will have to stick to text based walkthroughs or pointing the camera at the console unfortunately.

    Congrats on your 100th post!

    Why wouldn't they be able to do video walkthroughs? just use a camera with recording features so what if the 3d doesn't come out on the video it wouldn't matter.

    Maybe I am wrong and if so inform me why video walkthoughs won't be possible :)

    Or they could just turn the 3D off and continue to normally record video walkthroughs. 3D computers are in the works right now, so later in the 3DS' lifespan emulators may be existent.

    I mean full screen walkthroughs such as this where it seems like it's actually being played on your screen.

    Oh right i thought you meant just video walkthroughs in general I don't know if it would be possible but how do they do it currently? why don't they do it like that but with the 3d effect of like i said no one would mind the lack of 3d images as if they are playing it they have experienced the effect of the game already as the people who are watching it are generally stuck and don't understand speech walkthroughs. Simple :)

    They usually use emulators, such as that video, but they can also use things that plug in to the TV (only if it's a home console, though). For handhelds, people usually use emulators.

    Oh, and you're almost on your 100th post!

    Hopefully Nintendo will have an in-game video taker so these problems could be avoided!

    WiiCade looks like a shady website; are the games torrented?

    No, I think they are custom games, since the person who made Wiicade also made DSiCade, and on DSiCade, they have custom games.

    Sorry for the late reply, but no, they do not, Supper. Maybe they can make something like this:

    (I don't know if I've posted this already or not)

    it would be cool if you can split the screen; half video walk through, half the game you are playing.
