It won't come straight out of the box, but an update will be available for you to perform and get the goods.

Browser too.

EDIT: Damn, everyone gets stuff mixed up :(

See, the comment came from someone at NoE. NoA, after that, responded with the following

"Games and services offered by Nintendo can vary by region. Nintendo of America will release additional information about Nintendo eShop, including timing, content and pricing, at a later date." - Nintendo's Charlie Scibetta

They wouldn't go out of their way to say that unless they were thinking the service may not be available at launch in America. More like, probably not. Sure will in Europe, though!

Awesome... now the question remains... what will be the launch titles for it?

They might just say that so we don't get our hopes up? I'm sure at least the DSiWare already out will be accessible.

Right, they're not 100% on it so they wanna defend themselves.

Like I said in the other thread, I can't absolutely guarantee that it'll be available at launch because Nintendo is still working on the interface as we speak. However, my intel is directly from Nintendo of AMERICA and they're saying that it's going to be available at launch, after a system update, just like the DSi's shop channel was. So if nothing else, they plan to have it available for launch, although it is possible that they might not make it.

Either way, it's better doing it this way than delaying the hardware.
