    Am I the only one who thinks those coloured buttons look really quite unattractive? But on the other hand, AC adapter included with XL? I'm sold.

    The orange is hideous, but the turquoise is passable

    Both of those models look pretty cool, though I think the turquoise could have had a brighter blue hue or something.

    If it was a brighter blue it wouldn't be turquoise.

    Actually, I was thinking of a blue color like sky blue.

    Hyperbolic statements and fabricated statistics are why 80% of Internet posts say nothing of substance.

    Maybe so, but to say it was because they shut down Swapnote - or has anything to do with Swapnote - is a dumb statement.

    Worrying about a company's market share, particularly in this case, is great if you're in the sixth grade and constantly getting into schoolchild arguments over which company is better.

    Beyond that, it couldn't possibly make any less difference. Nintendo certainly isn't in any sort of financial trouble. It's not going to lead to the cancellation of any of their franchise titles. They would survive, regroup and move on and none of us at ground level would be affected in the slightest, particularly with them still sitting atop the mountain in the handheld market.

    I'm more sad then angry now because I have a lot of friends I won't be able to talk to now. I'll miss that little blue light flashing at least 10 times a day, sending out screencaps of new leaf, my artwork. But now it's all gone...

    Well, I didn't think anyone would actuality think I thought that was the reason. It was more of me just stating that Nintendo has been making some pretty dumb decisions. There were a bunch of small features they could stopped instead of shutting the whole thing down.

    Or you know, let the parents deal with it. I mean, the system does have parental controls. Why Nintendo feels the need to interfere after they promote the parental controls like they do is beyond me.

    And as a business, they'll either correct those mistakes or pay for them irreparably, and given their business history and financial coffers, I think we can continue giving them the benefit of the doubt and count on them doing the former.

    Parental controls can't specifically stop people from sending lewd material, unless you wish to turn off the photo attachments entirely, which I don't even know if Swapnote could do. Wondering "Why Nintendo feels the need to interfere after they promote the parental controls like they do" when they explained specifically why they made the decision is an obtuse statement.

    I'm sure they'll bounce back eventually.

    I'm not quite sure if it can do just that but iirc it can disable spot and streetpass. Or the whole app itself. Just dumping the whole thing when there are actions to prevent it seems unprofessional. But hey, it's theirs. If they wanna be my mom then let them.

    Well, now that they've axed internet functionality of Swapnote, there's no sense in me keeping it.

    Okay seriously, why are people mad at Nintendo for this? You see there are CONSEQUENCES to actions people. If you do something bad, then people will correct you. I'm pretty sure 2 year olds know this.

    "Blah blah can't stop everyone blah blah"

    Cool, I guess nobody even knows the cliché "If everyone jumped off a bridge would you?". If there are rules then they're supposed to be enforced. This is like people whining when they know they did something wrong, but somehow feel they don't deserve to be reprimanded when they get caught.

    I guess Nintendo really is behind in the times, back where there was better parenting. How dare Nintendo have rules and standards and follow through with them

    On that note, what if the axing is also in part because of a potential introduction of a 3DS Miiverse in which they could just ban individuals who did the stuff that lead to the swapnote closure?

    It is a pity though. Didn't use it much but I got a few neat letters from it. CoughProfescocough. =p

    Angry Nintendo Discontinues Spotpass feature of Swapnote!!

    Sigh... Looks like Nintendo has once again decided to play Big brother and basically defeat the purpose of the 3DS app Swapnote. For those of you that haven't already seen the notification heres an image 1451352_574102675972843_1870336135_n.jpg so what do you think? Should Nintendo keep caving to whiny soccer moms like this or should they advertise parental controls a bit more and let parents actually take responsabilty for there kids? Discuss!

    ^ Given we were already discussing it in the 3DS thread, I merged yours with it.

    The deal is, if Nintendo are going to continue to set themselves up as family friendly, they can't just turn a blind eye to this. If people are sending distasteful - or worse - images to kids, then if they allowed it that could be a bit of hot water they'd land in. It's not caving in to 'whiny soccer mums', which seems a rather assumptive statement to make tbh, especially when you don't know the nature or frequency of these messages in the first place.

    I think a better complaint is why don't they have a better system in place in which they can ban the individuals easier, so that they don't have to effectively make the whole system moot because of a few sick people. I doubt many people use it for streetpass only after all. I don't think other consoles have had these problems, but correct me if I am wrong. Again, maybe we'll get the Miiverse soon which'll be a step up anyway, but this decision is not well received right now.

    So because a couple of pedos and 13yr olds got access to porn, and shared it on the Internets they remove the only feature spot pass had to offer....
    Parents do a sh#### job at what they supposedly do, you know?
    I'm not mad at Nintendo, their just avoiding lawsuits. It's incompetent parents that gets to me.

    I didn't know people actually used or cared about Swapnote. It was so clunky to begin with I only used it once or twice.
