The 3DS firmware update that adds the ability to patch games and folder functionality to the 3DS is now live in all regions. We also have news that the eShop has been revamped. So stop reading this and go get your 3DS.
EFF YES :D *downloads~!
Folders. Woop dee doo.
I know, right? I, too am enthusiastic! FINALLY a way to organize my 70-something games and applications into a more manageable system! I have…
Nintendo has been giving away a lot of free shit lately. Don’t get your panties in a bunch because they won’t throw in a free blowjob.
@ABEzilla116 That is so true!
HEY, These folders kick ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you’re a control freak like me
Why are you guys so excited about folders?
All I can do with a folder is to drag some icons into it. Whats so fun and exciting about that?
The eShop looks the same, just having 2 lanes now, thats about it.
I am disappointed with this updates.
@haha Sometime in May they’re going to fix the Maka Wuhu glitch in MK7 with this. Still a boring update?
i think this is great for those organized people. but not for me
i have my games in sections on my home menu.
apps > 3d games >gba > nes > Gamegear > GBC > GB > Dsiware > Trailers
and i like it that way
(i did add a ton of folders to expand my home menu again) i now have 4x the original size
“Why are you guys so excited about folders?”
Because I was able to reduce the number of icons on my home screen from over 30 to less than a dozen. It makes things so much more manageable. Plus I can use the larger icons, which I find more attractive, without having to scroll back and forth to find what I’m looking for.
It’s a very welcome improvement to the 3DS.
but the folder looks ugly…
Nintendo should at least be more innovative and make it a treasure chest or something instead of a blue folder. When you open the chest, there should be lights shining out like in Zelda games, then the icons pop out in 3d.
“but the folder looks ugly…”
You do have a point @haha
Hahahahhaha THANK YOU xD was waiting for it!!!
downloading this moment! yeah!
Haha funny thing is I was opening my 3DS as reading this.
Very Impressed With This Update :)
cool how do you get it i want it now
like i mean eshop or go to options?
oh never mind i got it.
The eShop looks sick!
oh never mind i got it
Downloading mine right now. Really want to see the new eShop look.
Dowmloading right now :)
FUCK YES FOLDERS!!!
I get an error
Me too. But then I changed the DNS to Google DNS.
:) updated nicely
This is looking good!
Viridi, What are you Doing here, I thought you never liked videogames.
But in the game, Pit was talking about how he is walking in the temple to defeat the chariot master, she talkes to him how to not say anything about the next loading time.
So I can’t figure out how to make folders….
Tap on any unused spot on the Home Menu and a the bottom of the touch screen it will say ‘Create Folder’. I think you know what to do from there!
click an empty square on your 3DS home screen and it should say make folder at the bottom.
seriously!? try using common sense
shut your face adrian!!
It’s not exactly common sense if you happen to own an iPod, which allows you to create folders by dragging apps on top of each other. It took me a minute to realize that. People don’t normally hover over empty spots for no reason, you know.
I keep getting an error !!
Try turning the wifi on and off, also make sure it’s connected properly, see if you can browse the web then try again.
my 3ds doesn’t work :(
If this happened after the update you should contact Nintendo, sometimes updates tend to go badly.
What do you mean your 3DS doesn’t work? Did you drop it on the floor or in the toilet? Sorry, but you’ll have to send it to Nintendo for repairs then.
This update really helps :o And the eshop looks a little nicer. It didn’t look bad before though.
Pretty good update! Making folder’s is a nice way to save space, but I’m really liking the changes made to the eShop!
i was gonna go to my library tomarow to get this. it came early
im really am impress with the eshop new look its quicker more detailed and easy to use.:]
what’s the QR code scanner in the eshop for??
For FREE game promotions and free money! Yeah, all this will be given through Club Nintendo and Nintendo Power mags.
the QR scanner is there to scan actived card codes and eshop games similar to the code typed feature
whats with the patch on mk7? there’s still bug..
that patch isn’t until may
Remember the shortcut in maka wuhu?
Aww I was first place around the world
I just got finish downloading the update and the e shop looks amazing!!!
Billy, why the fuck would you even download the shit crap update, you must love garbage crappy updates!!! vita has waayyy better updates than this crap.
to syntaxFTW dude if you dont like the 3DS who really gives a crap and
anyway everyone is entitled to their opinion it just that yours sucks:] [::] POPTART
FANBOY ALERT FANBOY ALERT I’m sorry syntax but how many units has the vita sold? How about the 3ds?
@ SyntaxFTW WELL WELL WELL! Look what we have here!ITS A GIRL ITS A GUY ITS RAINBOW BOY THE GAY PROTECTOR!!!!GET THE HECK OUT OF HERE YOU FAGG!
oh my god,STOP REPLYING TO HIM
seriously thats the only reason why he is here in the first place, for attention
dont try to reason with him, dont try to insult him, just ignore him
otherwise he is gonna stay here forever
If youre a sony fanboy, what are you doing here? You Sony fanboys act like sony is your god or something, WAKE UP AND STOP BEING A CRAPPY ***GOT, the 3ds is awesome.
Oh my this again…
1. There is no trash
2. There is no feces
3. What are you rambling about?!
Nintendo fanboys vs Sony fanboys….. Y U NO accept the fact that both consoles kick ass? To start with vita only has some months, not year, so sales will obiously be less, and updates won’t have a lot of new stuff, so please act like decent people and not other crappy 12 year old who only accepts their first console maker.
Man I hate when fanboys do this, they always make the companies look stupid because of their fault
I think he bailed out (Left).
i am still waiting for my youtube app nintendo :P
me too it would cool:]:]:]:]:]:]:]:]★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★™☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆★★★★★★☆★★★
*Revamped music player app (with better organization)
*Weather + News app
*Video player app (that can play full length movies encoded in H.264)
*Dedicated web browser (not the one we have that shares memory with games)
Boy am I demanding, but I’m happy with what this update offers.
Yeah, I mean I am having problems trying to find a way to watch YouTube videos… ;)
Youtube, we need Youtube and maybe Minecraft?
although demanding, i think they are necessary
okay maybe not necessary, but the 3ds would be far more awesome if it had that
i dont think it would have skype though
maybe just a nintendo created app that lets you do that would be better
the psvita is better
That name is not allowed
ALL MY WANT FOR A SKYPE APP!
until some admin from this blog tells me to change it, i will( either that or the fact that i feel the 3ds has become the superior console)
if someone else tells me to change it, i really dont care
Ille vouch for the psvita is better. ive seen him on here and he dosnt troll or insult the 3ds. he just happens to think the vita is better. i for one think its great to see people who can enjoy 2 differnt systems and not be complete fanboys
yeah me too! hopefully dreams DO come true(cus i had a dream of me watching one of davids videos on my 3ds!)
There is a way to watch youtube videos on your 3ds.Link for instructions:
The conversion method does work but it is hardly ideal.
The eshop looks great!
I am getting mines right now. My downloads take forever!
sweet this is cool just downloaded the folder are ok but id rather have them then not
the folder is almost pointless anyway. maybe they should try one that gets dsiware from the sd card next time.
Folders are a godsend for me because I have had a heck of time organizing all the games I got from the eShop, this makes it a lot. But that’s just me.
They shure are good for me. i was starting to get worried i would have to start deleeting things.
you do know the home menu would expend anyway when it gets larger. i noticed when i added like 15 folders. my home menu is now 30×6. or 6×30. anyways thats about 180 available slots. i know almost no one has that much taken up anyway. i cant even get that much even if i use dsiware that used 25 built in memory.
It’s Awesome! Except the glitch fix -_-
The eShop has wii videos too (I think they weren’t there before)! Some of the wii game videos sadly looked better on the smaller screen than my big-ass screen (probably from screen resolution). Zelda Skyward Sword in particular looked better at the tinier 3DS screen.
they are not new, there have been many time they have put those in the eshop
and yeah wii games do look great in the 3ds haha
Now we play the waiting game…
I feel sorry for those blocked Flashcarts. Boohooyaa…
1st)baddass name 2nd)i have a flashcart that i would use on my dsi. but the exact moment when i put it in my 3ds, the whole system feeezes:/
again why would that billy person be dumb enough to download that shitty crappy garbage update, that just being an idiot!! vita have better updates than this piece of shit!! mm-royal ninja go burn your pathetic garbage shitty sorryass bastard ass in lava.
@SyntaxFTW And you get out of the internet and go brush your beber head!!!AND FOR YOUR STUPID RAP SONGS ! I GOT ONE FOR YOU !A GOOD SONG FOR YOU TO MAKE IS: MY GAY SECRET IN THE CLOSET BY SyntaxFTW . BUT 5HE ONLY THING YOU WOULD GET IS MORE HATERS!!! I SAW YOUR VID OF YOU SAYING – UHHH! STOP AGREVATING ME ![ crying] JUST BECOUSE IM GAY AND HAVE NOTHING TO DO YOU INSULT ME!STOP HURTING MY FEELINGS !WELL NOW IM JUST GOING TO WATCH GAY PORN IN MY BOYFRIEND’S HOUSE !!!
go cry to your sorryass mammy.
@MM-Royalninja So the way you deal with a troll is by making fun of gay people? You come off as a bigger prick than him.
@MM-royalninja the way you are replying you are just as bad as him if not worse. The funny thing though, is that whenever I see Syntax comment your comment follows soon after. Coincidence? Or are you really so sad that you are having an argument with yourself?
when will people learn to STOP feeding the troll?? *sigh*
@ABEzilla115 andCsaw Im defenetly not Him!So what you guys just said isnt right!And for insulting gay people!dont take it personel!Its just that gay people can be gay with out saying it in a kid friendly blog!And if you really think about it,they might be doing something that could really damege theyr life!Not just becouse theyr gay but their parantes might not want them to be!And he just pissis every one !!!DONT WORRY MY FRIENDS!I WONT INSULT GAY PEOPLE AGAIN!!!JUST DONT SAY YOUR GAY ALL THE TIME!!!PEACE OUT BROS!!!
OH!!!And I dont say all those bad words like he dos!!!Just to let you know!
Again the fanboy rage, really? -_- you people are the reasons people think games makes all people violent…and I hope next time people will only stop feeding the trolls
Sweeeeet downloading mine right now!
Folders are cool… But they look ugly
Did anyone else notice that they fixed the L and R camera buttons? Now if you accidentally tap L or R the camera won’t start, you have to hold it down. Tapping it quickly won’t activate the camera. Woot! Unmentioned fix :3 even if you click the button rapidly a bunch of times it won’t turn on.
I know this isn’t a good place to ask, but I figure it’d be a great place to get lots of responses. When my screens go black when starting a game/app or opening and closing the screens, my speakers make an audible tick sound, does anybody else experience this? I have 2 3DS here and only my cosmo black ones makes that. Should I worry about it? It kind of bugs me, I hope it doesn’t turn into something worse in the future.
I haven’t heard of that. You might want to contact Nintendo.
Nevermind, the red 3DS does it too, it’s just a lot more audible on my cosmo black one. I’ve already sent my 3DS in twice, they’ll probably think I’m trying to take advantage of their free replacement program and renewed 1 year warranty.
the only thing I’m missing is: let me here music while surfing the webs. Then everything would be fine
(+ youtube app)
(+ skype app)
(+ more free stuff :D )
I love the new folder feature, considering I had a bunch of NES, GBA, and DSiWare titles randomly scattered on my home screen. It may seem like a minor addition, but it really helps organization freaks like me.
Thats it Im getting a vita :P
Because they updated the 3DS? lmfao
opps posted under the wrong thread. hehe.
Do you want the 3DS to be slower so it can be a little fancier?
Next Update: Folder skins =))
that would be sweet
Background images for home menu? That would be awesome as well
downloading right now please HURRYYYY!!! XD
I’m having issues downloading this after multiple attempts, is anyone else experiencing this?
anyone else notice they brought back the old eShop jingle when starting it up?
sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t
SWEEEEEET that looks cool Im updating now
do we have to download it
