It looks like the Mega Man Legends 3 cancelled. But why?
Capcom officially announced today that the continuation of the Mega Man Legends series for the 3DS has been called off, and that there are no longer plans for the game. Capcom, of course, has recognized their supporters sorrow for the cancellation and has sent out their deepest apologies numerous times. Some gamers are probably beginning to think that the series may be in trouble, but Capcom ensures that this is not the case. In a FAQ list on one of Capcom's announcements, the question reads: "This is the second Mega Man game cancelled this year, what does this mean for the future of the Mega Man Franchise?" The answer following the question reads: " Mega Man is still an important franchise within Capcoms portfolio and we will continue to pursue opportunities to create new titles in the series"
Maybe Mega Man Legends 3 will fall into the hands of anxious gamers in the future.

It looks like Sony pulled the plug on the very popular Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception Beta, but Sony also released some statistics from the beta's run. Most of them are pretty impressive.
First of all, Sony is calling this beta the "largest PS3 Beta ever". The stats they include in their announcement back up the statement. Over 1.5 Million people participated in the beta. 1.9 Billion kills. 48 Billion shots fired. 22 Million matches completed and with those 22 Million matches, 362 years of gameplay was put in this beta. So, it's safe to say that the beta was a success.
Why did the beta do so well? Was it the popularity of the game that influenced so many to play? Even though the game is one of the highest anticipated of 2011, the reason why the stats are so impressive is because of the free PlayStation Plus access. The Uncharted 3 was originally going to be for PlayStation Plus subscribers only, and it was. However, the Welcome Back program gave pretty much any user with an internet connection access to the Uncharted 3 beta with free month of PlayStation Plus. The beta would've done well regardless, but the jaw-dropping numbers are from the wide variety of people that could participate.
The popular movie/TV show streaming service, Netflix, already has compatibility with consoles like PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. However, Netflix is going portable on the Nintendo 3DS this week.
All you have to do is download the Netflix app from the eShop. From there you login in with your current Netflix account and begin watching hundreds of movies and TV shows right on the 3DS. For now, the videos will only be streaming in 2D. However, if 3D movies become an additional choice on Netflix in the future, then the 3DS will most likely have full 3D support for such videos.
