In case you haven’t paid attention for the past couple of days, Netflix has been made available for the Nintendo 3DS in the United States and Canada. If you have a streaming account with Netflix, which costs $7.99 per month, then you’ll be able to use the application, downloadable via the eShop.
As reported by GoNintendo though, a user of the app is having a system issue:
I activated Netflix on my 3DS, and while using the service my system home button and power button aren’t working, while Netflix is running. I can’t back out of it and can’t shut my system off.
Other people have reported similar problems, but supposedly the solution is to continue holding down the power button. Eventually it’ll force the system off despite its other functions not working. When you turn it back on there’s supposedly no longer a problem.
