Marvel’s Defenders official trailer was release today. The trailer starts with Matt Murdock interrupting Misty Knight’s integration of Jessica Jones, from there we get some good action sequences throughout the trailer, antagonist’s Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver) and Elodie Yung (Elektra Natchios) are also feature in this trailer. So far, The Defenders looks interesting, this is sure to causes some buzz until its August release.
Netflix’s film version of the popular manga Death Note has finally released, while this isn’t the first motion picture version, back in 2006 two films were directed by Shūsuke Kaneko and were well received by fans, and with the history of bad big screen films (Dragon ball Evolution), people were skeptical about this film. After after looking at the trailer I think fans can be at ease with this adaptation.

It’s been mentioned a million times already but Nintendo finally has their system update available now. There are a few new features rolling out but the biggest is 3D video recording, stop-motion recording, the upgraded eShop and the StreetPass Mii Plaza.
For those wondering about Hulu Plus. No sign of it yet in the update notes the shop or on Hulu itself, what was one of the most anticipated updates is still missing from the 3DS.
Here are a few special notes on the upgrade:
- 3D Video is limited to 10 minute bursts, most likely a buffer limitation
- The eShop now supports credit to add the funds required
- Download now or Download later are available for purchases on the fly
- Download queues are now able to work while the system is in sleep mode
- Find Mii and Puzzle swap see new upgrades in StreetPass Mii Plaza
- Nintendo Zone support is expanded to over 29,000 3DS Hotspots
- Netflix requires a subscription still ($7.99 base)
There’s a lot of functionality here but I think most of the attention will be toward Hulu Plus missing the boat again on the 3DS. Only time will tell is Nintendo is content with just Netflix on board and their internal video service or if they’ll make that leap finally.
Netflix managed to enrage quite a few users with their most recent price adjustment, going from 7.99 to 9.99 to 15.98 a month. Today a mass advertisement masked as an apology was sent out to the masses, the point pushed Netflix needed to do such a thing to ensure their success in the market.
With that said, Qwikster plans to offer Blu-Ray discs, DVD’s and also video games in their service. If GameFly users should be concerned is unknown, with the site still under wraps it’s hard to say how solid of an alternative it will be. The plan is to roll out PS3, 360 and Wii games as primary formats. Pricing plans seem unknown at the time, the only notice is that just like Blu-Ray, gaming will have to be added onto the basic service itself. A downer for those who don’t have any desire to use the DVD system and an even bigger hit to PS3 owners who will end up having to pay for both to make the most of their systems.
Why am I critical about the email itself? Companies roll out new services all the time, they do so with detailed intent and plans to earn trust and build hype. Netflix decided to use old techniques often run in newspapers, an apology campaign to get users to tihnk about them in a new light. Instead of just bringing out the change as bluntly as they did the cost changes, they went in circles naming off the now bankrupt Borders and the dead age of AOL dial-up service to reinforce why they did what they did. It’s poor form and they’re pretending like the consumer is too foolish to know otherwise about them.
There are plenty of companies that look down on their consumers, I never thought Netflix would make it so blunt.
169.99. That is all that separates you from a brand new 3DS starting on August 12th.
Sounds too good to be true? Here is the official word.
“For anyone who was on the fence about buying a Nintendo 3DS, this is a huge motivation to buy now,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “We are giving shoppers every incentive to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, from an amazing new price to a rapid-fire succession of great games.”
“What if I already bought one for $250?” Good question.
Nintendo is giving you 20 free games. Early adopters will get 10 NES games and 10 GBA games. All you have to do is log in to the eShop before the price drop date to register.
The titles announced so far,
Super Mario Bros.

The rest of the titles will be announced shortly. Also, the GBA titles will never be available for purchase in the eShop.They are entirely exclusive to members of the early adopter Ambassador program.
Do you have a 3DS? Do you have Netflix? Now they go together like pb & j A slightly buggy pb & j. There have been some reports of it freezing up and the system has to be powered down. I’m sure there will be an update soon to smooth out any bugs.
Nintendo promises 3d movies in the future also, so updates are planned.
Netflix is available now in the eShop for free.
Today in Netflix announced support for specific Android phones! Streaming over 3g or wifi is recommended but with the emerging 4g market expansion, streaming should be no problem.
There is a party pooping issues though, No tablet support and the device list is a bit limited as of now.
If your phone is on this list, you are now able to drain your battery life even faster!
1. HTC Incredible with Android 2.2
2. HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3
3. HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2
4. HTC G2 with Android 2.2

Netflix on-demand grows with each day, bringing movies to the fingertips of the masses at large. From classics to hit television shows and newer movies the catalog has a bit of something for everyone. Today Netflix brings news of a new change, a deal to bring first run movies from Relativity Media to netflix subscribers for the first time.
The first wave covered by the new agreement includes “The Fighter” with Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg and Amy Adams. The other is “Skyline” directed by the Brothers Strause. Unfortunately the release dates are still a bit off with both of them set to be ready in early 2011, “Season of the Witch” and “Movie 43” by Peter Farley are also on the list but those will arrive toward the end of the year.
